This Time Next Year

Ahhhh, the New Year. Feel’s fresh doesn’t it? Full of resolutions, promises and excitement.

The number of people that start off on Jan 1st with dreams of making £10 million by March or shedding 4 stone by February never fails to amaze me. Get real.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt along the way, it’s to set measurable but realistic goals. Goals which, when you achieve them spur you on to achieve the next one – like getting an extra 100 readers on your Blog by June, and then converting just 5% of those readers into paying clients by the end of September.

January 1st is just a date. Like February 21st or April 9th. Don’t feel pressured into thinking you have to decide on your goals and aspirations at the start each calendar year like everyone else. Your plan is your plan for a reason – it can start anytime. If you want to change something in your life, it doesn’t matter when you start planning for it – what matters is when you achieve it.
