Your Next 90 Days | how will you wrap up this year?
Here we are, my friend. The final quarter of the year.
There are less than 90 days remaining in 2019. Can you believe that?
When I think of it that way, I tend to look at it a little differently.
Chances are, if you're a planner person, you've already ordered your 2020 planner, and you can't wait for the fresh and new pages that will be waiting to be filled with 2020 happenings.
But before we look forward to what 2020 will hold, what will the remainder of the days in your 2019 planner look like for you?
Think back to what you wanted to make happen in January of this year.
What dreams, thoughts, ideas, and plans did you want to do this year that perhaps you have not gotten to quiiiiiite yet?
For a lot of us, quarter 4 is the busiest time for our businesses. Especially if you run an online shop, you know that with Q4 comes holiday shopping for your clients and customers, and with that, it means that you've potentially got a lot on your plate to maintain and harmonize well.
However, even if you're beginning to pick up speed in your business for the next few months, I want to encourage you to think about what you want the remainder of 2019 to hold for YOU as well.
Is there something that you'd like to do for yourself either business or personally that you've been putting off, that you don't want to again, that when December rolls around, you’ll regretfully say, "maybe next year"?
Is there a course you'd like to finish, perhaps one that you signed up for more than a year ago in the first place?
Is there a book you'd like to read, that's been sitting on your shelf just waiting for you to open the pages?
Is there a place you'd like to visit with your family or friends, or perhaps you know that now's the time to plan that girls trip for the beginning of the year that you've been talking about taking forever?
Is there a product or a service that you've been thinking about for ages, that you know that you want to debut (or at least start working on consistently) before the year comes to a close?
Or, from a health standpoint, how is your health and fitness routine? Are you wanting to make some changes, and feel like you've got an earlier start on the January 1st “this is the year I’ll get healthy” idea?
Today, take a little bit of time and reflect upon what the year has held for you so far, and what you can do in these next 90 days to make 2019 one that you look back on December 31st and say to yourself, wow. That was a good way to close out the year.

This video below by Prince EA is one I find myself continually revisiting if I need that extra “no regrets!” kind of a boost - so if you find yourself wanting more from what the remainder of this year will hold, let this one guide you to make the next 90 days some of your best. To completing 2019 and our next 90 days well, my friends. Cheers!
