If you are anything like me, you are tired of everywhere you look talking about “New Year’s Resolutions”. So, I’d like to offer an alternative way to look at the year ahead.
Picture yourself reading this very email at the end of the year in December 2010. What do you want to say about the year? Is it the year that you quit your job and started your own company? Is it the year that you started a serious relationship? That you got yourself out of debt? What would need to happen for you to say that this was a great year?
1. Write this goal down somewhere you can see it daily
2. Break this big goal down into smaller goals
3. Tell someone what this goal is so that they can help you to stay accountable
Don’t get caught up in the “yeah, but…” in your life. Make a decision and start taking small steps towards it. And if it feels overwhelming, shoot me an email, I can help to break it down with you.
In terms of jobs, know there are many of you out there who are miserable in your job. I used to be one of them and always wished there was someone I could talk to or a course that I could attend that could help me figure out:
a) What type of job I should go into and
b) How to do it without going bankrupt.
