Time & Space Radio: Final Countdown to 2014


This will be the final show of 2013. It’s hard to believe that an entire year has gone by. Come join me as I close out the year with my final 2013 show. I’m going to help you get things tightened up to be ready for the new year. We’re going to talk about letting go of the clutter and controlling the paper, getting rid of what you don’t need and the things that no longer serve you.

I’ll show you what you can do to get ready for the upcoming tax season and how to be sure that you’re always ready without the hassle of the paper discombobulation. We’ll also talk about what’s happening for you next year. I have a checklist for you to use too. Mark the date in your calendar with a reminder and tune in!


HandDrawing2014There are exactly 30 days left in the year and there’s so much going on.  Besides people are focused on having things in order before the new year comes in and some are preparing for holiday festivities and shopping for gifts.  If you don’t want to cross over into the new year without things in order, these tips will help you count down to the new year as you step away from the chaos.

De-clutter your space and keep it that way-Visit the spots in your office where things seem to land automatically.  Usually it’s your desk, the tops of filing cabinets, tables and other flat surfaces.  At each spot, grab everything that’s out of place and go through it piece by piece determining where it needs to go.  If it doesn’t already have an assigned home, give it one and get it in its place right away.  Get into the habit of returning things to their homes instead of to the usual landing pads.  It only takes a few minutes at the end of your day.  It’s a habit that will serve you well.

Get organized– This is the time to purge your files.  Get rid of all of the paper that you don’t need.  Archive the files that you don’t need immediate access to and mark the boxes so that you know how long each has to be kept.  You can also use a filing cabinet drawer for archived files.  Shred anything that has your personal information on it.  Purge the files on your desktop and your laptop too.

Tax Preparation– Set up systems to help you manage your tax records and documents.  File documentation you’re going to need for tax preparation and organized for easy retrieval.  If you file the items that you need for tax preparation during the course of the year, you’re ready when it comes time to prepare your return.  If you’re using an electronic method of bookkeeping, get everything entered into that system so that all you have to do come tax time is print out reports for the numbers that you need.

Get rid of things that don’t work-If something you have or that you’re using is not working, get rid of it.  Replace it with something that does work for you.  This includes processes, systems and equipment.  Look at the current systems that you have in place to see what’s working and what’s not.  Adjust the systems to make them work for you.  Systems and processes help to streamline your business and keep it running like a well-oiled machine and save you a lot of time in the long run.

Final projects and tasks for the current year-Look at the list of things you wanted to accomplish during the course of this year or this final month.  What’s left to do?  Do you have time to get those things done before year’s end?  If not, choose one that’s most important to you and get it done during the home stretch.  Move the other items to your January calendar.

Create for next year-Think about what you want to accomplish next year and start making a list.  Don’t get caught up in the hectic energy of the season and randomly list things.  Make time to think about what you want to accomplish next year and relate those things to your values.  Create SMART goals from that list and a detailed plan to carry it all out.

VisionIs“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” ~ Jonathan Swift

This year is moving at the speed of light and I know that if you’ve watched it blow right on by, now you may be thinking that you could have gotten more done or having the “shoulda, coulda, woulda” conversation with yourself.  You’re looking at what didn’t get done and trying to figure out what to do before the end of the year so things aren’t left hanging, which leaves you determined to get things on track and not start next year in this same mode.

So what is vision? Vision is of course, your picture; what you see as it relates to anything that you want to bring to fruition.  Visioning is the starting point of your planning.  That’s where it all begins; it’s what leads to your plan to carry it all out.  Without it, the rubber can’t hit the road, and nothing comes to fruition.  Do you think about vision before you start to plan? If not, this might be one reason why the year has blown by without you being able to get any of your top goals accomplished. Missing that step will have you wandering aimlessly as you attempt to forge forward but instead, only find yourself spinning your wheels.

Before you do anything, you have to know where you want to go and have a crystal clear vision of what it is. Not having vision, or not having it be clear will stall your efforts every time. So, exactly what do you do if you don’t have that clear vision? Think about what you want, and with all of the details. What do you want to accomplish inside of your business?  What’s the best thing that you can imagine?  Don’t leave anything out and write down what you want things to look like. At this point, you’re visioning, so you aren’t focusing on the “how” or “who”, just on the “what”, and be specific so that the picture is really clear. Remember this is your vision, not anyone else’s, so you have to see beyond what others may see or even be projecting for you. You have to allow yourself to see what’s not there; what has yet to be. Your vision should be something that moves you, inspires you and something that will pull you forward.

Invest time in creating your crystal vision. You might be able to get the clarity for what you want in the matter of just a couple of hours, or you might need more time or even to contemplate things and come back to it a day or so later. It’s necessary to make the time to do this before you start trying to make it all happen. Once your vision is clear, it’s time to take the vision and create your road map to getting there with a solid plan.  Without vision, you have no foundation to pursue and bring what you want to life. Don’t make the mistake of missing this step. Make the time now to tighten things up for the final quarter of the year and to set things in motion for the coming year. Put your vision first!
