I have just finished a massive project that took several years to accomplish. The preparation was intense and I learned some very good but hard lessons. I want to share with you just a couple of lessons I learned.
Planning is powerful
Goals are funny things, they seem to be easy to make but hard to accomplish. When you set your mind to accomplishing something remember it doesn’t just happen. You have to make a plan to make it happen.
Preparation is powerful
The more I prepare the more confident I become. It is difficult to overestimate the power of preparation. The key is to start early. Every holiday season I take time to prepare for the next year. I sit down and focus on what I want to accomplish. I start with looking back on the past year and what happened. Then I decide what I want my next year to look like and what I want to accomplish. When I take time to prepare, the goals I set are much more likely to be met
Procrastination is powerful
Procrastination is just as powerful as preparation. It makes you think you have all the time in the world. It also makes you think that your task or goal will not take as long as it actually will. The outcome is a missed opportunity, failed attempt, or blown deadline at worse and a average attempt at best. Procrastination destroys confidence and instills intimidation, fear, and lack of accomplishment.
Take time right now to make 2016 your best year ever!!!
