It’s time to start tying up loose ends for 2020. It’s been an *interesting* year and I suspect most of us are ready for a new start. I like to finish up some things as the year draws to a close so I’ve made of list of tasks to try to complete this month.

Tying Up Loose Ends For 2020
Here is a list of eight tasks to consider addressing before the end of the year.
1. Review 2020 goals
As we all know, 2020 threw us for a loop. All those big plans we had for the year? Many were simply not possible during a pandemic. But it’s worth taking a look at your 2020 goals and asking yourself if there is anything on the list you might be able to do or at least take a small step toward.
2. Finish books
I usually have several books going at once, a habit I plan to change going forward. There were a number of books on my to-read list this year that I never even started. However, I do have 4 or 5 in the works and I’d like to finish them all before the end of the year.
3. Inbox zero
My inbox is never going to stay empty but a few times a year I like to achieve “inbox zero”. I especially like to do this before starting a new year.
My favorite resource for keeping my inbox in order is SaneBox.
4. Clean/organize office
I plan to give my office a deep cleaning and do some organizing as well. For the last few months of Shiloh’s life I rarely used my office except for Zoom calls. He got quite anxious when alone so I did almost all of my work from my chair in the library because that was the room with the sofa he slept on.
Now I want to get back to using my office for designated work hours and having it all spruced up will be helpful.
5. Make list of accomplishments
It may seem as though we didn’t accomplish much of anything in 2020. Yet for most of us that’s probably not true. They may be small wins but I think it’s important to acknowledge them. Did you clean out a closet, learn to bake bread or take up a hobby? Celebrate!
6. Catch up on courses/groups
I am in a life coaching group and also taking some online, self-paced courses. I want to catch up on those.
7. Fitness goals
No, I didn’t meet my fitness goals for 2020. But I can get back on track for the remainder of the year so I’m in a good place to start 2021.
8. Let it go and start fresh
Finally, I think it’s important – when it’s all said and done – to release 2020 and all its weirdness. Let go of any regrets you might have for not accomplishing more. Give yourself grace and be ready to start fresh in 2021.
