I always love the energy that comes with a new year- there’ something that feels revitalizing about a chance to refocus and start moving towards accomplishing your goals.
This is the time of the year where many are aspiring to better themselves, where many people are dreaming ahead to greener pastures, and I’m no different.
And, perhaps like you, I tend not to accomplish all of my pie-in-the-sky new years plans. Though I would love to say that I HAVE accomplished everything i’ve set off to accomplish in 2014, in reality there were a few things that I fell short. But it’s a new year, and another opportunity to relace my shoes and go for it.
I spent a number of mornings earlier this week going through Michael Hyatt’s Life Plan book. — He offers it for free at his website. It was a pretty cool exercise to finish. With the turn of a new year, it was a good time to reflect on the last year and a build a plan that would go beyond just 2015.
I did more than just work through Michael’s Life Plan book. I love to listen to podcasts while I’m in the car and one of the podcasts that I’ve been very much enjoying is the Fizzle Show. One of the ideas that they’ve mentioned in several of their latest podcasts is the notion of a Body of Work, and you should be working on things today that will contribute to the body of work you want to have in 5 years. This was an especially motivating idea to process as I worked through the Life Plan.
What are the things you can work on today, that will contribute to the body of work you want in 5 years?
For me, reflecting over this question made it obvious the next few projects to work on when I’m not working on Client work with Five Espressos (and our much needed rework of our website/branding).
I have made no real resolutions this year, but I still want 2015 to be a year of rapid goal achievement, and you’ll see that focus coming with changes to my blog and future projects.
What do you hope to accomplish in the coming year?
