Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe it's already 2011 and time for new beginnings and possibilities. If you are like me, you love the new year, the excitement with getting to set new goals and intentions and dream about at all that is possible. I love it, I really do but if I’m honest with myself, I know I’m great at “thinking” about all the things I want to do but sometimes struggle or at least have in the past with finishing or remembering my goals mid-way through the year.
The good news is that over the past few years, I’ve been challenged by my coach & mentor to write down what I want to accomplish in the upcoming year. And yes, while I usually hem and haw to get it done, when I finally do it, I love it! Writing it down gives me accountability and reminds me going forward of where I'm headed.
Now I’m not saying it has to be complex or a big detailed plan as I think we fail a lot to times when we try and make it too complex & too difficult but what I am suggesting is that you write it down. Keep it as simple as possible and start with just writing down 2-3 goals you want to make happen in 2011. Write it on a post it note (how simple is that) to really keep it short and sweet or if you feel compelled, write out a more detailed plan but the most important thing you can do is WRITE IT DOWN!!! Writing it down helps take it from thinking about it towards action & completion. And hopefully by writing it down you will also post it where you can see it.
Here's to keeping it simple but making it REAL!! What needs to be written on your post it note this year? What are your 2-3 goals you know you want to accomplish?
Let me know how I can support you in 2011 and make it a year to remember!
