You might have heard it said: “If nothing changes, nothing changes….”
If you really want and are committed to making 2010 a fantastic year, what do you have to do better, different, or change? Do you have to increase your commitment and desire to achieve what you want this year? How badly do you really want what you say you want?
For some, the odds are not in your favor. You lose focus, priorities change, it is too much work, life happens, and the resolutions become once again, not worth the paper they’re written on.
Effective time management will help you start out on the ‘right’ foot. Decide how the ideal day, week, month would look in order to achieve your goals. Put those activities on your calendar.
Consistently repeating high pay-off activities will help ensure you are on the path to goal achievement.
Don’t look at your New Years Resolutions as New Years Resolutions – look at them as changes that put you in the highest probability position to achieve your 2010 goals. They are things that become part of the way you do things from here on out.
Get an accountability coach. Having to talk to a coach, on a consistent basis, who will hold you accountable immediately improves the odds of you achieving your goals. An accountability coach will help keep you focused and on track so you have an even higher probability of goal achievement – professional and personal. It’s too easy to let the crisis of the day or little distractions and interruptions alter your ideal day activities you have on your calendar. Having an accountability coach provides the accountability you need to enable you to do the things you know need to be done, but just keep making excuse after excuse and therefore letting your goals and dreams slip away.
Have a game plan and execute it. Winging it and not having a game plan isn’t going to help you achieve your 2010 goals. You have a much better chance of achieving your professional and personal goals when you have a game plan that you can execute on a consistent basis.
Are you going to get to the end of this year and say to yourself, I wish I would have….. so I could have achieved my goals? Change the way you have been doing things to get the outcome you desire. What will you change today, this week, this month? Make 2010 a fantastic year and live your life with no regrets from this day forward. Let me know how I can help.
