At this time last year, I ask you the same question. You have a brand-new year ahead … what are you going to do with it?
Most of us start off with grand plans and intentions, but what happens? Nothing.
In talking to people throughout the year, especially those in leadership roles, I hear the same story.
They ran out of time.
They ran out of energy.
Or, they forgot about their grand plans.
One client told me she’s done the work to set her goals, but still doesn’t achieve them. She knew she should be aiming high but somehow she just doesn’t get to the point of actioning those aspirations.
Have you experienced that?
On paper, your plans look great, but in reality, you feel like something’s missing or you’re not totally committed to your decisions.
You’d be surprised to know how common that is.
The thing is, we can become so swept up with the wave of forward planning that hits us at this time every year. So, we pick some logical goals (possibly even borrow someone else’s goal so you feel like you’ve put a tick in that box!) and plan for them.
It’s all too fast and not properly thought out. No wonder we forget what we’re supposed to be focusing on.
Don’t let yourself be rushed. Take your time. It really doesn’t matter if you don’t get your goals and plans in place for a month or so. However, it is much more sensible to take your time now and get them right.
This is a good time to start thinking about what you want to achieve in your career and life this year. And I mean really thinking. Thinking about what YOU do want, not what you think you should want.
Getting clear on your ideal future is critical because if you don’t know what it is, you can’t work towards it and chances are, you are leaving your chances of career success in the hands of others.
Set yourself up for success this year with my help.
I run a free online program called, funnily enough, Set Yourself Up for Success. While the program is available whenever you need it, now is the perfect time to register. You’re in the right headspace for it and the program will lead you through the planning process gently but clearly.
If you’re not sure about your direction or if you don’t know how to pin those plans down, this online program will help you.
If you’re tired of doing things the way everyone else does – or expects you to – this program ensures you think outside the box and do things your way.
This is a FREE online program delivered via video coaching and a series of emails each week over 5 weeks. There’s also a heap of resources I’ll give you, too.
Don’t waste another year.
Work out what you want and why, and let’s make it happen.
Happy New Year. Here’s to your success!
