One of the best habits you can develop (or maintain) for yourself this year is to journal. It's not a diary to vent your frustrations and record gossip. It's to track where you want to go and how you intend on getting there. And as you execute, you can then record the results. Why is this important?
Not only does this provide accountability, especially when done on a public forum, but it's a record of data you can use to optimize your goals and processes. Success in business is a constant optimization of following the needle-movers, shedding the time wasters, and making everything more efficient.
“The intensity of your desire will depend on the clearness with which you picture to yourself what you want to be.” ~ Wallace D. Wattles
Desire isn't enough. You need an intensity of desire. Intensity can't be had without a clearness in your vision. You can't have a vision without goals, and you can't have goals without processes.
You can't keep plopping yourself in front of your computer and dealing with whatever needs attention. It's time to choose what deserves attention, and what kind of attention these things will get. You need to understand every step you will take along the way, the time frames in which they will be achieved, and every micro-task involved.
The best place to lay that out isn't in your head, but somewhere where it's recorded for your future reflection. The best place on BuSo to do that is here in our monthly goal threads.
This is it. The start of another year. If you say the same crap you said last January, then that means you wasted last year. You lost a year of your life to spinning your wheels, being lazy, or aiming at the wrong goals. It's time to put a paradigm shift in place, get a clear vision that produces intense desire, and wreck this shit. 2019 is going to happen fast. There is no tomorrow. There is only today.
Only you will make your dreams come true. Is that something you're interested in? Tell us about it.
