One of my most favourite sayings in the whole wide world is how you do anything is how you do everything! How you apply yourself to one area of your life is usually how you apply yourself to most areas of your life and this is why we’re all so bloody determined 01 Jan to get our killer beach body, or give up smoking, or save for that dream and by February it’s all gone out the window.

So let’s look at some of the ways you can set yourself up for success going into a new year:
1. CLEAR OUT THE CRAP
Literally…. emotionally, physically, financially, spiritually…let go of anything that no longer serves you in any of these ways. Our external worlds can be a reflection of our internal worlds so pay attention and let go of anything that may be literally and figuratively speaking be holding you back and leave it firmly the past.
2. KNOW YOUR 1 THING
He’s a smart man is that Gary Keller. Know your 1 thing which is going to be the needle turner in your business for the new financial year. What’s the one key objective for you or your business and make a note of what you have to do, have or become to make that happen.
3. MAKE A PLAN FOR THE BIG STUFF
Put your big stuff your diary and the smaller stuff will slot in. It's about understanding the big ‘rocks'. That is what is the big stuff that the smaller stuff needs to fit around? Plan for the bigger actions/tasks first that have the greater impact on your business.
4. GOAL SET 90 DAYS AT A TIME
Most of us when we set goals, we tend to focus on the long-term goals…the 1 year, 2 year etc and this is where can lets ourselves down. The long term goals can seem so far away that it can almost be demotivating because it seems like such a mammoth task to accomplish that, that after a while we give up! That’s why NY resolutions can fail miserably despite our best intentions! So lets make it a little easier. Having a 90day plan ensures that you whilst you may have your long term goals, you’re able to be super focused on taking action in the short term. We like gratification and validation us humans so achieving the smalls steps that lead to the bigger goals no only makes us feel good but also ensures we get sh*t done!
