7 Tips to get ahead for the new year


As 2018 draws to a close, it’s worth using the next few weeks to feel clear-headed, focused and organised in 2019. We’ve written 7 tips to help you get started:

  1. Clean out that inbox!
    The last thing you want is to come back in 2019 and feel swamped from last year’s emails – action those you’ve been meaning to get rid of

  2. Write down your wins
    Write down 10 professional accomplishments from 2018 to take into the new year – celebrate your colleagues’ too

  3. Sign up to that course you’ve been meaning to do
    January is a great time to feel motivated and improve your skills

  4. Network with other SBM’s
    Share what’s gone well this year – don’t forget how supportive the SBM Twitter community is

  5. Clear out those draws
    Not looked at that piece of paper in the last 18 months? Bin it!

  6. Start looking at contract renewals
    Avoid leaving everything until April. The Education Broker can provide four staff absence insurance quotes by simply filling out one form – a quick way to ensure value for money and ticking one thing off your list

  7. Relax over Christmas break
    If anyone deserves a break, it’s you!
