9. Establish Positive Habits
The holidays are crazy, as the work and commitments are piled up. You need to create and maintain positive habits to manage the stress that will come from it. Plan your goals for November and December, be conservative and concentrate on the big rocks. Then, leave a lot of empty space in your planning to handle the upcoming unknowns. Be diligent, limit your commitments and be prepared for the rush. – Tony Mickle, Big Box Coaching
