WE ARE BACK BITCHES!

If you are like me, today is the first day back at the grind. I had the week between xmas and new years off.


There is a REALLY good chance ill get NOTHING done today but it does feel good to get back into the swing of things.


a few tips to get back in the flow that I try to do ( big emphasis on the TRY)


  • start with easy tasks first: any quick follow up emails to respond to? notes to update?
  • take time to review the week and get any prep done that you need to do (or at least schedule when you will do the prep)
  • Review your pipe (because again if your like me i just totally disassociated with work and forget when the fuck if going on.)

hopefully doing these things can get you back on track.


ill report back on if it actually worked for me ๐Ÿ˜‚

Few more additions:

- Clean up your tasks from the previous year. Last year I conveniently forgot a few tasks that were pending as the year ended, and then I realised half way through Jan'22 that they are shamelessly pending still.

- I love cleaning my laptop, notepads, notes, CRM, emails and even any or every list I might have made in 2022. I like to start afresh.

- I like to change my signature in emails and my Display Picture in Gmail and Slack. Just a good feeling of 'New yearrrr!' haha!

so on normal days. i 100% agree with you. doing the hard thing first is the best.

but for ME, coming back from a big break, i need to get the engine going just a bit so i change it up.

Update: they didn't postpone, but they're extremely early in the process... which is for 2024. Sigh.

This was SO much better than getting a โ€œwelcome back team letโ€™s go crush!โ€ from management. I started my AM this way as well and Iโ€™m already taking my first breakโ€ฆ

good call. and the last day before break I made sure to take time to fully work through my pipeline and understand what the next steps are for each opportunity.

I wrote that all down and have it ready to go. so ill be referencing those notes to get back in the swing of things. but if ppl HADNT dont that step then going back through the pipeline is a good way to force your self back into work mode as you realize what items you need to take care of right away haha

Our pastor kicked of 2023 with this message:

"If you could fast forward 1 year from now, what does your life look like spiritually, financially, and professionally?

Understand that you will be imperfect throughout the journey and that's okay"

Great message Tennis!

Using your day back to get organized and plan out your quarter and year has been beneficial to me. Once you feel organized generally you feel better about where you're starting from for the year.
