I am writing to you from the Bahamas, my native country, where I trek every year to spend the holidays with my family.
I am in full holiday mode but, as I told you in my last edition of Discovery, my business never goes on holiday and neither should yours. So, thanks to technology, I am still able to stay in touch and publish this edition, albeit a very short version 🙂
This weeks brief feature article, “Follow Your Holiday Inspirations”, is a reminder that there is inspiration all around us.
My team and I are slowing down for the next few days, as we get full swing into our various holiday traditions. I hope that you are doing the same and, that you will return to focusing on your business with renewed hope and expectations.
Although this is a time for family and celebration, never forget that it is also an opportunity for you to let your creative juices flow, while you observe what is going on around you. As they come, and they will, I promise, be sure to capture those moments in a notebook (yes I still use one) or on whatever gadget you might prefer. Anything that seems like an idea for your business should be included then when you get back to your usual working schedule, you can sift through and figure out which of the ideas you noted, could actually be turned into an opportunity in 2012.
You might also consider using this “off business” time to make a list of items you plan to tackle when you get back. Make your list, check it twice and make it happen!
Until next time, remember, whether you celebrate Christmas as I do, Hanukkah, Kwanza or any other holiday tradition, do it safely and make it memorable!
To your online success!
