Moving Forward While Others are Standing Still

It's the last week of the year and many people are kicking back. That's exactly why this is the perfect time to continue to move forward. Here are some things you can do to keep the momentum going as the year winds down.

Make a list of people you haven't spoken to in a while and place a call to them this week to wish them a Happy New Year. It is important to keep your network well greased, particularly in this economy.

Take a look at your to-do-list. If you've got things on the list that are more than a month old, chances are fairly good that you really don't need to do them. Cross them off the list and move on.

Take the next few days to think about what you would like to accomplish in the New Year. I'm not suggesting that you put together a New Year's Resolution list, as we all know what happens to those lists. Just jot down two or three items you would like to accomplish over the next year. Be realistic so that you have a fairly good chance of making things happen.

If you've decided that 2009 will be the year that you will find greener pastures then this is the perfect time to put together your resume so it is ready to go out the door come January 1st. 

You've only got three days left. Make the most of them.
