Wrapping Up the Year On A Positive Note
As we come to the end of 2020, we are wrapping up what has proven to be an unprecedented year. The pandemic has forever changed the way that we are doing business and the way we work. 2020 has presented challenge after challenge and like the saying goes “the only constant is change”.
As we move closer to 2021, it can feel like there’s a lot of uncertainty that lies ahead but we should still prepare ourselves to take on whatever may come our way.
Here are a few ways to wrap up the “Year of Covid” as you would any other year, but with the extra precautions necessary during this time.
Evaluate Your Year
Connect with your team and review your year-over-year numbers, discuss the year as a whole. There’s no doubt that you’ve learned some lessons along the way, so get clear on your 2020 takeaways and set aside any negativity that you might associate with this year.
Set Realistic Goals
Take a moment to revisit your goals for 2020 and consider where you are in terms of achieving each one. Don’t feel discouraged over anything you didn’t accomplish; instead, give yourself grace and evaluate your progress objectively. This year has been difficult for everyone, so there’s no reason to carry any blame and guilt into 2021. Now, it’s time to look forward and start making new, realistic goals.
We might not know when we can fully transition back to full capacity, but savvy business owners will be proactive to ensure they are prepared for it. Check in with your key stakeholders, particularly with those who have had to postpone, and start discussing best-case and worst-case scenarios. Put everything on the table so you can make internal plans to accommodate the changes – It could be finding a new office space to accommodate new team arrangements, or planning for off-site meetings and events.
