I love the week between Christmas and New Year’s. It’s often a time of reflection and planning for me. While I have been working, I have also scheduled time for renewal with a facial and mani/pedi.
Part of what makes “Designing with a Deadline” successful for my firm and our clients includes proper planning. In order to plan for our client projects, we also need to plan other important time into our schedule. This includes time for self-care (a huge focus thanks to great direction from my mentor Tobi Fairley), marketing, design-time, education, travel to furniture markets, etc., etc.
I will start planning this weekend and start filling in our calendar, both personal and work. Planning this far in advance also means setting those big, bad goals for the year. This is my favorite part because I am also able to look back at the goals we had for 2012 and see that we had several big successes this year. I want to do a vision board a little something like this:
I hope you have a wonderful “countdown to the New Year” and I can’t wait to share some of the big things we have planned for 2013.
