What are you planning for 2018? Any potential resolutions floating around in your head? Any new goals you want to tackle? Between Thanksgiving and New Years, I plan out my next year. I look at my mentoring questions, my 2017 goals, review all the things I’ve learned and ways I’ve grown. Then I look out at my old 3,5,10 year goals. I put everything on the table, reshuffle the deck and I get prepared…… to quit.
This week is quitting time. Every year. I quit old dreams, old habits, old thoughts, old routines, old projects or hobbies. I quit relationships that no longer fit. Savings rates that aren’t meeting my goals. I quite a few things I love. Good things.
If you have done my mentoring questions (on the blog or those in my course), you probably have a short list of what really matters. What you really want life to look like. Things closely tied to your values, passion, and purpose.
But here’s the rub:
100% of your time is allotted.
100% of your money spent or invested.
100% of your energy spoken for.
What do you want to see in 2018?
Deeper, more meaningful friendships? A stronger marriage? A healthier body? A thriving creative outlet? A new source of income? A significant raise? Full nights sleep? More impact in the areas you serve?
Every single one of those will take 1. Time 2. Money and 3. Energy.
Ever wonder why your goals fail? How can new things thrive if we give them no time, money or energy? I get asked a LOT how I do all that I do.
Here is a short list of what I don’t do (so that I have time, money, and energy for what I do prioritize)
Drive a decent second car Pick
