2. Send handwritten cards to your clients
Make your clients feel appreciated by you. Sending a heartfelt, handwritten holiday card is also an effective way to retain customers. It could be that one thing that sets you apart from competitors.
You can extend this gesture to your employees if you have any.
3. Check your books
Take the time to balance that checkbook, input your books into your software, or check in with the person who does this for you.
4. Complete miscellaneous tasks
Even if you’re perfectly organized, there’s always something that remains undone at the end of a busy year. Make sure you don’t miss anything before stepping into the new year. With most undone tasks, there’s still time to get them done. And there’s no time like December.
5. Deep clean your office
Even if you have regular office cleanings, it’s time for a deep clean to go into the New Year! At the same time, schedule equipment inspections that may be overdue. This ensures everything is functioning well before the start of another busy year.
6. Reflect on & review your year
Holidays present a perfect opportunity for reflection.
Schedule some time just for you, a personal retreat, and make it relaxing and fun.
Once you have some quiet, take the time to reflect on your business over the past year.
After reviewing your year, use the remainder of your personal end of year reflection time to start setting goals for the following one. By getting started with new goals during the holiday season, you’ll be all set to make the upcoming year even better!
