September is usually the time where the year starts again for the second time. Even if you are no longer in education yourself, there is a certain nostalgia that comes with this time of the year that leaves us craving motivation. At school you would be embarking on the next year of learning, preparing yourself to do so in the shape of new notepads and stationary sets. Although school days may be behind us, what’s stopping us using this time to reflect on how the year is going and what we want to do to succeed even further. Here are five tips to help you maximise your full potential and end the year in the best way you can.
Organise your time
The past year has been a challenging time for us all, having to adapt to a new way of living. Many of us may also be working from home or unfortunately out of work. Whatever your status, setting the time to organize and plan your time is only going to be beneficial to your achievements. Try using a weekly planner so you can plan your week ahead and make time for all the things you want to work on. This will not only help increase your productivity but allow you to create some structure in your live and keep your brain stimulated and your mind happy.
Taking a little bit of time in your day to document your feelings is a great way to not only hold yourself accountable but give you time to reflect on your achievements however big or small. Some people like to start the day with this practice, others prefer to do so at the end of the day. Either way it’ll help clear your mind and refocus your thoughts.
