It wasn’t until I started an online business that I thought about life in quarters. If you work in business, you probably always think about this, but as nurses, we never did. Becoming a business owner as a nurse has been a learning curve to say the least. If I can do it, anyone can. It has helped a ton to think about what I want each year to look like and then break that down into each quarter, month and week. I talked recently on my IGTV about reverse engineering your goals and you can learn more about that there.
The fourth quarter is the final hustle in my mind. It’s the final shot to hit the goals you said you would do in January. I am far off from mine. FAR. So if you are too, let’s just have a moment of silence for how ambitious we were in January and how a little dose of reality is setting in. However, NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO QUIT. The best thing you can do for this quarter is to get your energy high vibin’ so that you can accomplish as much as possible.
Here are my tips for high vibing Q4 Energy:
Get enough sleep by turning off phone and screens (all of them including TV) at 9 pm. Trust me on this. Get a book out and read in bed starting at 9.
Drink more water. I use a 50 oz water bottle and make sure to fill it up twice. I pour from it into a glass jar and put a drop of lemon essential oil in it.
Move your body every day throughout the day. Get up and walk around every 30 min for a few minutes and go for walks in the morning and evening.
Drink a smoothie. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are probably not nourishing your body enough. Smoothies are the easiest way for us busy professionals to get enough nutrients.
Laugh. I mean it. Just laugh. Do something to make you smile and laugh. You need it.
Get organized about what will earn you more money. DO ONLY THOSE THINGS. Q4 is all about execution. I use the Accountable Time Journal to help me stay on track.
