The new year (2018) is almost here and all are going to start off on the right foot. But, before you've got to have a good strategy and mindset, you need to know about the mistakes that we did round the outgoing year.
Here are six mistakes that unsuccessful people made in 2017 and also some tips to avert those:
They didn't reflect on their accomplishments
Many companies have performance reviews around this time, but even if yours doesn't, take the time to think about all that you've accomplished. Don't take your success for granted. Take the time to think back on the year critically before heading out to holiday.
They forgot to set goals
It's important to think about your long-term goals and short-term steps around the New Year. You're not setting yourself up for success if you fail to sketch out some sort of path forward.
They left loose ends
Unsuccessful people allow work to spill into their free time over the holidays. Try to celebrate the New Year by treating yourself to a much-deserved break. Spend the extra time now to make sure you can enjoy worry-free time off.
They failed to disconnect
If you can avoid checking your email or phone messages, do it as you've earned a break.
They neglected their network
Whether we're talking about loved ones or professional contacts, it's important to maintain the relationships in your life. Unsuccessful people fail to cultivate these connections.
They didn't give thanks
When it comes to success and happiness, gratitude is actually a crucial factor. Successful people never forget the people that have helped them reach their goals.
