Each year around this time, we can all feel the shift in energy. The air cools, the leaves begin to change, night begins to creep in at a completely inappropriate time, and there is either an air of release as people give up working for the year OR an increase in stress as businesses try to catch up in annual goals in the final—and also most distracted— months of the year. Either way, as a business leader, this can likely be the most stress-inducing time for you.
“WTF is going on?!” you might catch yourself wondering, as your typical go-to employee fumbles yet ANOTHER task and seems to be less and less reliable.
Depending on your industry, sales may take a dip as well in this quarter as your typical client has less time and be under more stress.
The Holiday Season is coming, and pressure may be rising.
I aim to write in my journal in the morning before I check any emails or social media accounts. I have linked my favorite journals and books below.
And if you’re REALLY feeling motivated, feel free to comment and share some of your intentions for some old school accountability! I’d love to cheer you and your business on!
Looking forward to a less-spooky Q4,
