It was New Year’s Eve and I was so excited that I could not contain myself! You see, I had created a list of things that I wanted to accomplish in the coming year that included nearly 30 items!
Oh, I simply couldn’t wait to get started and I was telling everybody I knew about what I had planned.
I was eager, I was bold, and I thought that I had it all figured out and that year would be my best ever. Turns out, it was the worst year of my life.
Where did I go wrong?
Well, the following year, there I sat with my big plans for the coming year and it finally hit me. With better than 27 new plans on the table how was I ever going to be able to give each one enough attention to see that it achieved the success I knew it could?
The answer surprised me. And it took a while before I fully understood it all, and it took even longer for me to make the corrections I needed to make in order to indeed succeed at higher and higher levels.
Today, those lessons are burned into my brain and I know that I’ll never go back to making the mistakes I once made that caused me to have one bad year after another.
In fact, I am now, right now, today, as I write this, pairing DOWN my list for 2012 so that I only focus on those projects that will indeed result in big successes.
I have become a master of staying focused. I learned the hard way that although I thought that I was focused but was really never focused, just excited, and that lead to more failures than I care to remember!
Now, if I could show you a better way to put yourself in a position to have a winning year in 2012, would you listen?
More importantly, would take action on what I share that is sure to give you a much better shot at making 2012 the best year you’ll have to date.
And, would you, after experiencing the results, continue to use my strategies in years to come so that you can continue to experience better and better years ahead?
Of course, I would expect that you’re answer would be a resounding YES!
