I can’t believe it’s almost December. This year is winding down, and before we know it we’ll be in 2012. I’ve hardly started thinking about next year yet.
But it’s time to start! As the year comes to an end I become increasingly aware of the looming new year, and especially during January, I start to look at the big picture, map out my plans, and start on an organizational system that will get me through the next twelve months successfully.
Kirsten Fischer recently posted about this on FreelanceSwitch in her article Getting Ready for Next Year – Now. She includes a useful list of four specific, “doable” tips to get you started:
- Create a new filing system.
- Collect receipts.
- Find an accountant.
- Get out one last marketing push.
Check out the entire post for more details.
What about you? What will you do over the next month or two to prepare for the new year? What would you add to Kristen’s list?
