At this time of year, it’s tempting to just limp to the end.

To mail it in, with one eye on the calendar.

To count the days before the holidays start, without making the days count.

To look for opportunities to get distracted.

But today I want to encourage you to finish strong.

Instead of slowing down until the finish line on the year comes, start building momentum towards next year.

Start working on your goals.

Start setting a vision.

Catch a break on the competition.

Keep yourself motivated so that you can launch into the year ahead with purpose, vitality and drive.

Don’t just be festive, be fired up!
