If you think the year has gone by fast so far, trust me - the next 60 days will go by in a flash. November and December are consumed with a sprint to finish the year strong, planning for 2018, and the holidays, all mixed together. If you have ever felt like "the holidays snuck up on you" and that you had to scramble to get gifts for family and friends, here's a plan for you.
In the next 3 days, take a moment to write down everyone you want to buy gifts for during Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, etc. Decide what you are going to get them, and then buy the gifts. Life will be a rush of things-to-do during mid- to late December. Plan and shop now, and you'll be able to relax a little (and actually enjoy!) the holidays.
