1. Tax planning – have you thought about whether there is anything you can do proactively while still in 2010?
  2. Projects – which projects will make a difference if they are completed in 2010? Can you increase focus? Divert resources from other projects? Take time to consider how to overcome roadblocks?
  3. Holiday preparation – anything you can do to ensure the business will run smoothly during the holidays?
  4. Thank you – what better time to take a step back and remember to say thank you.
  5. Season of giving – instead of thinking about what you’ll receive or want, spend that time thinking of how you can make a difference for your employees, peers, managers, families, friends etc.
