December is my favorite month to take stock

in esteem •  2 months ago 


December is a planning and reflection month for me. I take time to reflect on the past year's activities and think of what I want to accomplish in the next year.

Often people do this in January, but that is when the new year starts. I want to hit the ground running by the time the 1st rolls around.

Since I do weight loss work, I notice people taking an interest right after Christmas that lasts until February. So I want to take advantage of that motivation if I can.

December is good for time off from work and school. When I worked in offices, often I took my vacation time in this month and other times the place I worked for closed anyway. So this gives free time not available at other times of the year.

A lot of STEEMians seem to be of this same mindset. We have contests running to talk about your successes and failures. So maybe I have the right idea.

Unfortunately, I will not have time off this year. Or maybe it is fortunate. Whenever other people take time off STEEM, I work harder. I get better votes on weekends and holidays just because others are not posting. My auto-votes are higher and I get votes from people that normally do not vote for me.

They have to vote for something, and here I am!

I tend to start my planning in February, at that time, many people I know are already "falling off the wagon" while I am barely getting started. I plan in February and take action in the very early spring.

I hadn't thought about checking my autovotes to see if they are higher when others aren't posting. Another great tip from you.

How's your edema? Did that Dr. Visit help any?

We stopped by to give you an uovote and wish you a great day @team-ccc.

I think here it is a custom to have your list with goals for the new year ready in December. I think each day is good for a review and change. Happy day.

It is a good strategy to plan in December for a good start in January. And keep posting in December is a good plan too :)
