In looking ahead to plan next year, what is important to you in 2013? What do you want this next year to be about? I believe if we do not create the map for where we want to go, we will never be able to get there. There’s also a part of our brain that is yearning for that kind of information. The reticular activating system of the brain is the part of the brain that will create focus. Set goals, create your vision and your brain will support your efforts—effortlessly!
To get yourself ready for the New Year, you need to look back in order to move forward.
- What did you learn about yourself as a businessperson or entrepreneur in 2012?
- What were your three key learning’s that you want to take with you?
- What are three things that you want to leave behind as you move into 2013?
Leaving behind things that don’t serve you is important. Maybe it’s a habit, maybe it’s a failure that you’ve learned from and now want to leave behind. If you don’t carry them over the new year’s threshold, then you can clear space for the great things to come in 2013.
- What are the three major successes you had in 2012?
- What is your theme to be for 2013?
As you reflect, picture yourself on December 31, 2013. Looking back, what are you going to be most happy with that you have been able to accomplish?
Just make sure as you begin to look at those New Year’s goals, resolutions, plans, look back so you learn in order to move forward.
