Holiday Habits That High Performers Use to Get Ahead

Holiday Habits That High Performers Use to Get Ahead

The holiday season is for quality time with family, fun, and festivities. But, it can also be used as an opportunity to get ahead and set yourself up for success in the coming year. There are a few common holiday habits across high performers during the holiday season that set them up for success, to achieve their goals, and maximize productivity during this time of year. 


1. Using Downtime Effectively

While most people take time off during the holidays, using this downtime can be used to your advantage. This time is the perfect opportunity to be productive and strategic. 

Of course, you should still take quality time to be with your family and enjoy the holidays – so don’t make it about working long and hard hours, but rather about working smarter and more efficiently. This will keep you on top of everything during the holiday season, and already know what you need to do, and how to do it once the new year comes and everyone is back to work. 

2. Investing in Mentorship and Coaching

The holiday season and end of the year is the perfect time to invest in yourself and your business – through mentorship, coaching, and other programs that will help you get ahead. 

By making this investment now, you are setting yourself up for success in all areas, as the best investment you can make is in yourself and your knowledge.

3. Reflecting on the Past Year

The end of the year is the best time for reflection and redirection. Take some time to look back on the past year and what went well and what didn’t. By doing this, you can identify areas for improvement and make necessary adjustments for the future. 

It’s not just about celebrating successes, but also about learning from the failures, and how you can adjust for even greater achievements in the coming year. 

4. Planning the Year Ahead

Set aside some time to sit down with a calendar and plan your year ahead before it even starts. There is a huge power in planning, and taking the time to map out your goals, projects, and commitments for the coming year. 

This will ensure that you have a clear roadmap to follow and can stay focused on your priorities. It also keeps you on the same page as your family, and know what you need to prepare for throughout the year. 

5. Staying Active and Healthy

Don’t give up on your health just because it’s the holiday season! Around this time of year, everyone puts aside healthy eating and workouts for a fun holiday season, but high performers understand the importance of taking care of themselves. Staying active and healthy is crucial for maintaining energy, focus, and productivity. 

Commit to a consistent routine of physical activity and prioritize your health. Not just for looking good, but to feel and perform your best. 


As we approach the holiday season, it’s important to remember that this is not just a time for relaxation and indulgence. It’s an opportunity to get ahead and set ourselves up for success in the coming year. By adopting these holiday habits, we can maximize our productivity, focus, and strategic thinking. We can reflect on the past, plan for the future, and prioritize our health. The impact of these habits is far-reaching and can bring us to new heights of success.

So, as you enjoy the holiday season, remember to use your downtime effectively, and be prepared to achieve your new year goals and excel in all areas of life. Here’s to a successful holiday season and an even more successful new year!
