With shopping, parties and local events, it is not hard to become distracted over the holidays, especially if you manage your own schedule. However, it is important to stay focused if you want your business to be a success. This is why I have put together several tips for staying productive during the holiday season.
Know Your Limits
If you are someone who works with clients, it is tempting to agree to every project during the holiday season. Unfortunately, you wind up overbooking yourself, and you do not have time to enjoy other activities. It is important to know your limits throughout the year, and especially during the holidays. Prioritize your tasks and learn to say “No”, so you can focus on your current tasks without reaching burnout.
Take A Break
While it is important to stay productive, adapting an “all work, no play” attitude is going to cause you to reach your limit. Give yourself a break to enjoy the season. You can watch a holiday movie, bake cookies or check out the lights in your area. When you resume your work, you are going to find that you are more productive than you were earlier.
Schedule Your Online Shopping
Taking a break is important, but doing a little online shopping can turn into hours of browsing. Of course, resisting the urge to shop altogether may cause you to head back to those shopping websites. One idea is to schedule time to do your online shopping. You can also make a shopping list during your downtime to limit your browsing.
