We’re coming to the end of the year and that means you’re probably thinking about what you want to see happen in the next 12 months. I don’t need to tell you that for most people, there’s a huge gap between what they want to see happen and what actually happens.
New Year resolutions are a bit of joke at this point, but your New Year resolutions don’t have to be a joke and today I’m going to share with you one simple tip that may seem obvious but will make a huge difference in you achieving your objectives in the next year.
Hey everyone this is Dominique Andersen. Welcome to StretchandBloom Soundbites where in five minutes or less, I will give you a quick tip to create a life you love .
Imagine this: you have to renovate your home and you need to hire contractors for something big like redoing your roof. You have two candidates.
On one hand you have a guy who’s standing at the corner of the hardware store and he’s telling you he can fix everything, he can do everything but he’s standing there in his dirty clothes and looking a little sketchy.
And you also have someone who is recommended by some friends and has a pretty impeccable track record, great website, clear list of services, team, truck, connection with other contractors who can deal with whatever happens on the construction site.
And everything gives you an impression of order, and competence.
Who is going to be the faster and gives you the most peace of mind? The guy who is standing at the corner of hardware store who doesn’t have any equipments and doesn’t have anything organized or the super professional recommended impeccable track record contractor?
Obviously we’re talking about number two.
How does this relate to your new life? You want to have a great life in the coming year. You want to make big changes. It’s a bit like a renovation. If you want to go fast, you have to do the prep work.
You need to anticipate the snags and you have to have a success plan and a tool box. You need to know your limits and plan accordingly. You need to be like Contractor 2. You need to be ready for what will happen not just wing it.
So how does this work?
Well, let’s say for instance you want to change career. What do you need to make a successful transition? You need a financial buffer, you need the network, new skills, confidence. Try to figure out who you are and what you want. What you need to do is get your objective out of this fuzzy place of “I would like to”, this sort wishy-washy place and make this objective tangible with an actual plan.
Where do you need support? Where do you tend to slack? What tends to throw you off? Super important – really be aware of your weaknesses. What are your milestones?
You know life probably will throw things at you. Life is not lenient. Things happen. You may get extra bills, you may get a crazy month. You have to be anticipating – you have to anticipate the snags and be ready so that you can get back on track pretty quickly.
The point is, if you don’t plan to succeed, you’re planning to fail and anticipating success means being ready for what may come at you and having a plan to address that.
Actually, in my workshop – BLOSSOM – I have a whole chapter dedicated to planning and anticipating the snags on the road. You can’t just go out there and wish for a wonderful new year. You have to be clear on what you need to achieve a successful new year.
Well, that’s it, that’s my tip for today. Have a great planning session for your next year.
