21 Ways How to Thrive in the Year-End-rush Instead of Only Surviving

In my last blog I wrote about the year-end-rush and the number one (rather counterintuitive ) tip of how to deal with it differently. What I wrote is still true - while talking to my clients though I realized that it supports even more to have a list of various hands-on ways or measures to pick from. Those that help in your individual situation. Which I guess is different from mine. And the one of the person next door.

"I am really good at my job - and still make mistakes.

I adore honesty - and still I lie sometimes.

I have clear  boundaries - and still on occasions don't manage to say no.

I decided to not participate in drama - and still find myself in it from time to time.

I am generally organized - and sometimes still chaotic.

I'm a serious person - and still laugh about silly stuff.

I'm a feminist - and still love (most) men.

I'm a happy person - and can still fall into a black hole sometimes.
