Behind the layers of illusion, beyond our fantasies, after the Christmas blues, we discover that we walk a lonely road on a Boulevard of our own structured dreams for the new year.
If for some reason, you were on able to achieve some of your goals in 2015, here are a few tips to help you navigate through the boulevard of 2016
Look at it. A goal that you can actually see is massively more powerful than a goal you write down on a checklist. This is a favorite technique of mine and it works very well if you’re a visual learner.
Tell people. Making yourself accountable to your friends and family is one of the best ways to reach your goals. Sure, it’s uncomfortable to share your setbacks. But when you do, you’re going to get emails from friends who have experienced the same and they’ll get your mind back on track.
Talk is cheap: While we advice you tell a couple persons your plan, too much of it is not good. Just get to work and don’t let other people deter you — you can inspire your friends with your results, and then use your momentum to support their journeys too.
Never stop learning: Seek opportunities to hone your craft, whether that’s by taking classes, networking with potential mentors, or soaking up tidbits from other successful people around you.
Take control of your calendar: We’re terrible at building time for ourselves into our busy schedules, and great at filling them with the desires of others. If your resolution isn’t booked into your calendar, then when were you planning on doing it? It’s one thing to slap something onto your calendar, and a whole other to honor it as a commitment. Create a habit of completing a task during the time period you’ve allotted for it.
