We can help you out of the final quarter slump for Q4 2018!
As we enter into the fourth quarter of 2018, now is the time when the market typically begins to change. Business may get slower as the weather chills and people begin to slow down a bit. However, there is still room for success! Below are tips for success during Q4 2018:
1. Don’t dwell on disappointments.
Whether a deal falls through, or you just can’t seem to generate the amount of leads you hoped for, it is important to recognize that these disappointments are only temporary – and it is best not to dwell on them. The more you worry about what’s happening, the less efficient your work will be. Take a few moments of frustration, and then continue on with the tasks at hand – it is always best to move forward than to wallow in the past.
2. Remember what you’re thankful for.
As we begin the month of Thanksgiving, it is important to acknowledge what you are thankful about. Some people will even journal their thoughts, writing down a couple things each day that they are happy they have in their lives. This works in creating a positive mindset and demonstrates how the good will always outweigh the bad, even if it doesn’t always seem that way.
3. Power through.
The last quarter of every year tends to be the most difficult. People tend to move slower, it gets dark earlier, and work can be less effective than prior quarters. The best way to get out of a slump is simply to power through. Even when you feel tired and worn-out, tell yourself that you are going to finish your to-do list – or, at the very least, the project you’re currently working on. By getting in the mindset of finishing what you had planned, no matter how sluggish you may feel, you’ll start to begin to gain more energy.
