The end of the calendar year is a natural time to reflect on the previous year, its successes and challenges, and thinking of ways to make the coming year even better. Improving work-life balance and making small changes in your work life can make for a happier, healthier 2015. Here are our top New Year’s Resolutions for you to consider:
Make time for yourself: It’s understandable to want to stay control of work-related projects and programs, but sometimes it’s just as important to delegate so that you don’t burn out. Plus, it gives other people the chance to develop new skills and take on new challenges. Put time on your calendar to recharge your batteries, it’s the best way to ensure physical and mental wellbeing in the New Year. Determine your personal return on investment (ROI) take into consideration that the best thing you can do for your company is to work at peak performance, and no one can do that without taking a little time for themselves.
Learn something new: Staying up-to-date on current trends, best practices, and technological innovations can not only help you in your career, it can help you to feel more fulfilled. This relates back to the first point, but oftentimes professional development can slip to the bottom of the list. This year, make it a resolution to learn at least one new thing every month.
Plan and promote: If you work for a small or medium business, oftentimes planning and promoting get pushed down to the bottom of the list. In 2015, put time on the calendar every week to discuss business direction and goals, marketing plans, and financials.
Don’t just make do: Productivity is as important for your mental health as it is for the company. If there’s office equipment that is slowing you down or just generally making your life difficult, this year, don’t just make do — get a new one. Don’t put off the equipment that you need for one more month.
