As you are wrapping up things for 2013, you can start getting items ready for the 2014 year. Some tasks can be done in 15 minutes where some are a bit more time intensive.
While you are sorting out all your paper work for 2013, start your folders and fields for 2014. This is a great time to do them as you know what did and did not work for you and you can make modifications or changes at this time. If you wait until March, you may have forgotten what you wanted to change and spend another year not being as productive as you could be.
Reorganize Your Space
Chances are during the year, you haven’t had the time to keep your space neat and tidy. Take this time to do that. Find those shelving units you bought but never put together, the pen organizer that is still in the bag and put all the paper away. Put the expired books in a cabinet to be used for trade shows or other events.
Restock Your Packages
If you have gone through a lot of hostess and recruit packages, start making new ones. Depending on the timing of your company, you may not be able to put in catalogues but you can get everything else ready.
If you do a mail out in the New Year with new catalogues, you can also get these ready while you wait. Find envelopes and get the addresses onto them. Print out any paperwork that you put into the envelope and put it in them. Throw some business cards into the envelope or anything else that needs to go in that you have already.
Read Company Information
If you have gotten behind on some of the information relating to your company, take this time to get caught up. I know I don’t always read the company emails that come out (the general information ones) so now is a good time to do it. You never know what questions may get answered when you do this.
