Congrats — you made it through! Summer is coming to an end, and the kids are finally heading back to school. Now, it’s time to get back to business.
We get it, summer can completely throw off your routine. And if you haven’t been working at your best, know that it’s not your fault. You haven’t been lazy, you’ve been enjoying the weather and the time with your family. So whether you’ve been going strong all season long or you took a bit of a break, there’s never been a better time to reorganize, refocus and reignite your business-building efforts.
Need a little push? We’ve got some helpful tips for getting back on track and moving forward towards accomplishing your goals.
Plan With a Purpose
Don’t underestimate the power of a solid plan. If thought out thoroughly, determining the right strategy could save you time in the long run by helping you avoid mishaps, no matter what you’re trying to get done. The first part of having a solid plan is to have a goal in mind. What do you want to accomplish in the next year of your business?

Commit to Your Routine
What do you do when you wake up every morning? Are you a creature of habit or do you prefer to wing it and inevitably forget a thing or two on your to-do list? How you begin each day before jumping into your work will set the tone for your productivity level and attitude, so take a moment to declutter your mind and get prepared for the day ahead.
First, make yourself a priority and take some time for you. Make coffee, eat breakfast, put on your favorite outfit and start your day on a positive note. When your basic needs are met, it’ll be easier to focus on what needs to get done. Do this consistently and you’re guaranteed to have a routine that will help you stay on track.
If you have a home office, make sure it’s organized and encourages you to finish the task at hand with minimal distractions. That means light your favorite candle, turn up some tunes and do whatever you need to do to get focused. If you prefer to leave the house, pack up your supplies, grab your ear buds and head to your favorite café or lounge to get to work. Whatever atmosphere you prefer, set your intentions and stay consistent with your actions.
Become Punctual + Disciplined
You may already be a punctual person, but if not, it’s time to be on time … literally. Nobody likes waiting on the chronically late friend, family member, teammate or business partner, so don’t turn into that person. By adding more organization to both your personal and professional life, you’ll naturally become more punctual and begin to make the most of your days.
Approaching your responsibilities with more discipline helps you stay attentive and focused on the task at hand rather than everything else on your to-do list. Say you’re meeting up (in person or virtually) with a connection for the first time, you’ll want to give off the right impression from the very start, so don’t be late!
Remember, dependability is one of the best ways to earn someone’s trust — they’ll be more inclined to believe in the products you share as well as the business opportunity with NewAge if they know that you’re reliable and trustworthy. So, help everyone believe in your character by giving them your undivided attention and showing them you’re serious about their time as well as your own.
