Another year has gone by, and I cannot wait to see what the New Year has in store for us. 

With that said, it also means that it’s time to wrap things up and start preparing for the new year. And if you want to succeed, it’s time to start planning. In this blog post, I would like to share 5 things to do before the new year.


Create a list of your significant highs or accomplishments from the current year, and celebrate them! I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who are always on to the next thing. I never take time to soak it all in, but not this time around! This year I’m listing and celebrating all my wins, both personal and business.

Secondly, create a list of all your lows or failures. What are some of the hard lessons that you’ve had to learn this year? How can you use those lessons to your advantage in the future?

Create content in advance

It’s essential to plan to ensure that you’re not caught off-guard. I would advise that you create and schedule your content ahead of time. Write out all your captions and shoot all your images so that you can set yourself up for success. The last thing you want is to be working over the holidays.


I love this time of the year. We get to spend quality time with our loved ones, and it doesn’t get better than that. But on the flip side, I don’t want to feel like I need another break because I’ve had a busy festive season. Make sure you get that well-deserved rest.

Make time to plan

Allocate time to plan your year or at least the first half of the year. Don’t wait until January to start planning — there’s no better time than now. What are your goals for 2021? What do you want your life to look like? Remember, you are in control of your destiny. If you want to be successful, you have to recognise your potential and live up to it. Make a conscious decision to level up and be extraordinary!

Finish strong

Most of us start to get into the festive mode way before we should. Try to keep your energy levels up and remain focused right until the end of the year. Complete all your tasks or goals for the current year so that you can finish strong.

Those are the 5 things to do before the new year. Make sure to plan, reboot and reflect on the previous year. How are you getting ready for next year? Let me know in the comments below.
