Wrap Up 2021

We don’t mean to alarm you, but it’s almost time to welcome in the New Year! It can be tempting in December to let things go, but now is actually a great time to get a jump-start on 2022. Here are some tips to help you wrap up 2021 and hit the ground running next year…

Clean up your inbox

Take the time to go through your email inbox, read each email and then either action it, file it or delete it! After that, unsubscribe from all the mailing lists you’re no longer interested in. Imagine leaving the office for your Christmas break with an empty inbox! What a feeling!


Take a moment to look back at the year that was, what have you achieved? What positive impacts have you made at work? Allow yourself the time and space to be proud of your accomplishments.

Clear your desktop (digital and physical)

If you’re one of those people who saves documents to their desktop – now’s the time to file them or delete them. Give your actual, physical desk a good wipe down and clean your keyboard ready for when you return.

Write a to-do list for your first week back

With all the Christmas and New Year excitement, it can be easy to forget where you left off. Write a list now for the first week back so you can pick your work right back up again.

Sign off in style

A Christmas note to those you have worked with during the year can be a nice way to end on a high note and elevate your brand.

It seems like 2021 has flashed by while simultaneously dragging. Whether you feel ready or not, the best way to ensure a productive 2022 is to set yourself up strong. So use this break to rest. Recharge. Step into 2022 with your best foot forward.
