This year has been a whirlwind for all of us.
The uncertainty that took us by storm at the beginning of 2020 and then the long year that followed has left many of us tired and beleaguered.
When the pandemic first hit, I thought I’d see my business get crushed. More than half of my revenue comes from the coworking industry, after all.
Luckily, I was able to sustain a full deck of clients for most of the year, resulting in by far my best year yet.
But with all that busy-ness, I haven’t had time to think about my own business. To plan strategically about what I want 2021 to look like. I’ve even let a lot of my marketing slide for my coworking consultancy, too.
Not to mention, I’ve almost completely neglected my own personal needs—as I’m sure you and many others may have done also to some extent. I’m extremely grateful for my health, family, new son, and fortunate business results for the year, but it’s taken a toll.
So, my plan is to unwind over the holidays and zoom out from my business a bit. To spend time away from the computer, letting my mind wander and regain the creative energy it needs. To nurture the soul.
There’s nothing like separation from your work (and long walks) to give you perspective on what you want your next steps to look like. This year has been a stressful one, so I think we all need and deserve some time to think and recharge.
That’s my plan, I hope and encourage you to do the same.
