Between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a very busy time for most businesses. Not just retail (which is obvious), but I’ve often seen a surge in spending for B2B businesses as well. Excess budgets need to be used up, people are rushing to meet targets / goals before the end of the year, etc.
I look at the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas as a crash course in getting things done and setting micro goals before the holidays kick in and everyone goes into over-eating and partying mode.
With that in mind, I’m starting a group writing project next week. Everyone will still be full of turkey, beer and football watching, but we can’t dilly dally – there’s work to be done!
The purpose of the Post-Thanksgiving Goal Writing Project is for you to write out 1 or more goals that you have for the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. You may choose to write 1 post with a bunch of goals, or break it up into multiple posts over the length of the week.
I’m going to try and write 1 post per day on a single goal I have for the time period.
Link your posts back to Instigator Blog and I’ll return the favor by linking to your blog (at least twice!) And tag your posts “post-thanksgiving goal writing project.”
It’s as simple as that! I’ve always found writing goals down helps accomplish them. What’s more, writing them down publicly makes a real statement — “I am going to get this done!”
Be brave, and when you see other people promoting/writing their goals – encourage them, help them, and check up on them to see if they’ve met those goals. We can be an online support system! A community of people helping one another achieve our goals…
So while you’re enjoying copious amounts of turkey, wine, stuffing and all other assorted goodies, keep your goals churning in the back of your mind, and get ready for the Post-Thanksgiving Goal Writing Project! It starts November 27th.
