In my recent newsletter I wrote about the importance of being focused on what you are trying to accomplish in your work. As the new year is coming upon us quickly it is a great time to revisit that subject. I believe there is nothing more important to you having an impactful year in 2009 then becoming clear on what it is you want to accomplish. I’ll be posting daily messages to help you begin the work of getting focused for 2009. If you are skeptical about doing this work I’d like to make a few points.
1. Nothing important ever happens by chance. If you want to make a big impact in 2009 you’ve got to prepare for it.
2. Being focused also means letting go of ideas and plans that have been floating around in your head but you never take action on. These clutter your mind and keep you from doing what needs to be done
3. Most of the time we don’t spend enough time trying to figure out what we want. I have found that most of us( including myself) don’t give the proper effort towards figuring out what we really want to accomplish. By doing this we tend to grab onto any opportunity that is placed in front of us.
Over the next month I’ll be adding articles and exercises to help you begin the planning that you will need to do to create the focus and energy to make a huge impact on your business in 2009
