Here we are at the end of yet another dance around the sun and about to close down 2023. For some no doubt it will have been a great year, for others not so much and there’ll be many more in between who’ve had a year of ups and downs. I hope you’ve at least had some good times in the last year. Mine has been a pretty mixed bag, but onwards and upwards as they say.
I adore this time of year, so much more than Christmas itself. It’s a time when the hype is over, the stress is levelling off and while we may not be sure what day it is, things are quiet and chilled (unless you are back to work of course, then it may not be that way at all!). The hustle and bustle of the run up to the big day is draining I find and life gets way too busy.
This time between Christmas and New Year, is what I call ‘my time’, the time where I get to kick back, chill and look forward and plan for the year to come. Mind you, I’m not always very good at following through on those plans. Some things are easier than others, life can very much get in the way and I’ve the added issues of an ADHD brain that not only gets bored rapidly but can forget that goals were even set, never mind remember where they got written down. It is however all part of life’s rich tapestry which thankfully a bit like so many of the things I start is still a work in progress and there’s time yet for it to all come out right for once.
I believe you have to remain optimistic as much as humanely possible – again I know this can be tricky, but if you can find some good even in the worst things then you’ll find picking yourself up again that much easier.
So planning social media!! I love planning and my goals are all set and planned no problem. The area where I’ve gotten stuck so many times is for social media. Social Media can feel like such a drain at times.
Don’t get me wrong I love social media, especially LinkedIn, for so many reasons, BUT, when you have a business to run, especially if you are a sole trader than fitting posting in can be a total nightmare!! Do you agree?
🤯 What to post
🤯 Where to post
🤯 What time to post
🤯 How often to post
🤯 Ideas? Like what the heck do I post?
🤯 Who’s going to want to read what I say? (That imposter syndrome can be a killer)
🤯 Getting the right images
🤯 Getting and staying organised
🤯 Finding time to do all of the above …and the list goes on …. and on …..
Over the years I’m slowly finding all of this a bit easier. I actually had it cracked in 2020 when I managed to post to LI almost every single day of the year! This year hasn’t been that way. Life got in the way, lots of down time poorly and then flat out trying to make up for lost time.
However I’ve spent some time this year looking back and 2024 is going to be my organised, getting it done, growing sort of year and if you’d like to come along for the ride, then I’ve something that might just help with all of the aforementioned.
