First off, let me start by saying Happy New Year.

So the festive season is at an end and hopefully you have had your fill of fine food and wine, Christmas and the New Year has enabled you to spend quality time with your friends and family. Now we have the joy of looking ahead and getting back to reality, with this in mind we start to think of what we want from this year, our hopes and dreams i.e. winning the lottery and winning the euro millions back to back!!

And then reality hits……… The chances of winning either are slim, let alone back to back. So then the question becomes, “how am I going to achieve what I want from this year?” And the answer to the question is “create a plan”. If you set yourself achievable goals and space them out well within your plan, you are much more likely to achieve your goals. You will need to set goals which are achievable challenging and some that you think are out of your reach. There is no point having a list of things you know you can achieve easily, that will not motivate you to strive for the best nor will it push you to the limit.

“He who fails to plan, plans to fail” - Proverb

So my advice is to create a list of action points, turn that into an achievable plan and turn your plan into your successful 2012. You don’t have to be an athlete to strive for a gold medal this year.

Your proverb used states it all perfectly. A plan is needed to strive for new levels of success. Your plan most also be realistic and contain goals that push you, but that are also obtainable. Good advice and thanks as always for sharing.

I agree - in fact I just completed my "strategic plan" for 2012. Now I just need to track my progress and keep focused.

Thanks for sharing!
