Have you got a handle on your strategy for making the new year a success, or are you waiting until New Year’s Eve (or worse, New years Day) to begin making your plans?
Hopefully you started formulating some plans back in September to truly give yourself some time to percolate on what you want to achieve in the new year, and what you’ll have to do (or not do) in order to reach those goals.
This past year has been a challenge to everyone, and yet you seemed to handle everything it threw at you.
Sure, you could have probably handled something better (couldn’t we all?), but overall you did the best you could by being flexible, creative, brave.
Not surprisingly, those attributes are what it takes to make every year a success. Given current circumstances you might not believe this, but you encountered challenges every single year of your life. One year your challenge was learn how to walk and talk — those are pretty important goals — but you were able to handle it.
The coming year will bring a bunch of new challenges with it, and there’s little you can do to specifically prepare for those (because you have no idea what those challenges will be), but you still want to set the goals you want to accomplish because those are separate and apart from the challenges you’ll encounter.
The challenges are what you’ll have to handle on your way toward achieving your goals.
