Goal Setting For Your Business and Your Life

An entire month of 2009 is gone forever. What will you do with what's left? Think about it: You have a brand new 334 days. Nothing has ever been done with those 480,960 minutes. ANYTHING could be done with them, but so far no one has touched them.

Don't you think that potential deserves some preparation? So, how do you begin to prepare for such a monumental undertaking?

Start by examining 2008.

Ask yourself:

  • What was the greatest thing you accomplished in 2008?

  • What were your major setbacks or obstacles in 2008?

  • How did you overcome them?

  • Could you have handled the situation differently, better, more calmly, more efficiently, etc.?

  • What is the one thing you most want to accomplish in 2009?

  • Why do you want that thing?

  • What 3-5 areas of your life would you most like to improve in 2009?

  • What one thing would you most like to improve in those areas?

  • What three things can you do in the month of February to help you accomplish those things?

  • What will your greatest accomplish be in 2009?

  • Why? What will make that your greatest accomplishment?

  • What date will you start to plan for 2009?

It is up to you to make those things happen. Will you start today and move steadily through the year without having to jump any hurdles, without getting pushed back by a sickness, or a death, or an injury, without getting turned around and going backward for a while? Probably not.

But you will have a plan, a map, an idea of what you should be doing, what you want to do, and what you WILL do--steadily, confidently, and courageously to make 2009 the BEST YEAR EVER!
