3 Tips to Get Inspired This Season

With the hustle and bustle of the season, wrapping up year-end work can be a challenge. Here are three tips from our favorite holiday films to inspire your efforts now and in the New Year:


1. Find the positive. In “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” Charlie resents the commercialization of the holidays, but Linus helps him see the good in the season. Similarly, don’t let negativity derail important projects. Seek out the positives, and chances are you’ll find a new opportunity or perspective and more.

2. Leave the past behind. When ghosts of past, present, and future visit callous TV exec Frank Cross in “Scrooged,” he learns his painful past is ruining his and others’ chance for happiness. Instead of wallowing in the past, focus on the present and draw insight from lessons learned.

3. Don’t stop believing. In “Miracle on 34th Street,” New Yorkers must decide what they believe after a department store Santa Claus claims he is the real thing. Once-doubtful Susan Walker dares to put her faith in something greater and ends up seeing her dreams realized. As you begin a new year full of opportunities and challenges, don’t stop believing in yourself, in your team, and in your organization.
