How to Stay Driven at the End of the Year

In just two months, we’ll be counting down the clock to a new year, and I’m thrilled to say that I feel really good about the end of 2012.

I haven’t always felt this way. The New Year can be daunting and saddening for some. Whether you have trouble setting new resolutions because you failed to meet old ones or you fear aging, tacking on another year can sometimes feel like time is slipping away. And there is always so much to do.

So, what’s my secret? Focus on the present. I am looking at the rest of 2012 as a blessing. 2 more months to finalize goals. 2 more months to push myself harder. 2 more months to live up to my own expectations and no one else’s.

The end of the year becomes a driving force for me. Here’s how you can make it work for you:

  • Review past goals. I do this every year during my birthday, which is my personal new year. I set a list of things I want to do at 32, 33, and now at 34. It lifts the pressure of “The New Year.”
  • Note all of the great things you’ve accomplished. This is a great way to feel grateful for the positive changes you have made in your life in 2012.
  • Set one goal you want to accomplish before the end of the year. It’s a great way to not overwhelm yourself and focus!
  • You are alive! Yes, it’s that simple. You lived through another year. Be grateful.

So, let’s finish the rest of the year with a bang. Surround yourself with motivated and driven peers. This goes for any time of the year but, as I said earlier, sometimes this time of year is tough. It may be the weather. The fact that it’s dark before 6pm. Or the idea of wrinkles or gray hair (I found one last month!). Just change your mindset and remember your blessings.
