How was the turkey? Last week, I wrote an article about taking action on goals (LINK HERE). During Thanksgiving week, at the front of the week (Monday-Wednesday) many people had downtime at work, while they waited for the holiday.
Durign that time what action did you take? Now that Thanksgiving is over and we are in the final weeks of the year, can you continue the momentum…can you start now? DON’T WAIT for January! Start now.
I took action on a some important goals that I had, some were ongoing and others were way behind schedule. But, the action I took helped move them forward and made the turkey taste better.
