Now that the end of the year is upon us, it may be a great time to spend the last few months getting some areas of your life in order. Here are a few suggestions that you can work on a little each day, so that you’ll be able to start the year fresh.
A task a day.Count how many days are left in the year. Then, grab a sheet of paper and list tasks you've been meaning to do--one for each day remaining. Do a task a day, until they're all completed.
Start a new calendar. Get yourself a new calendar and fill in any special dates or events you already know about.
Go a step further by highlighting similar dates in the same color, such as all birthdays in green, all meetings in blue and all medical appointments in yellow.
Donate unused stuff. Designate an area for donations easily accessible for use year round. Grab a large plastic bag and inventory your closets, cupboards and drawers for anything you no longer need, but is in good condition. Drop these items in the bag, and drive them over to your favorite charity organization. (If you have kids, donate toys they no longer play with. This is always good practice right before Christmas, right before the new Christmas toys arrive from Santa.)
