It's hard to believe that there is little time left in 2023. What was it that you wanted to achieve this calendar year?
Did you want to grow your business? Did you want to start a new business? Did you plan to start a new or different career? Did you want to build a better relationship with someone special in your life? Write a book? Buy a new home?
You still have time! With your goal clearly in mind and a commitment to taking action daily there is much you can do before the clock strikes 12 on December 31.
Remember every accomplishment starts with an idea.
Goals are achieved when your heart is aligned with your vision and when passion and purpose direct your daily activities. Does your day reflect what is important to you? Are your actions congruent with what you want for yourself, your relationships and your business?
Helping individuals and teams articulate their goals is incredibly exciting. I have the privilege of working with people who have dreams they believe are worth achieving. What guides you and speaks to your heart? What goals are you planning to reach before 2024 begins?
Maybe you can see the finish line from here. Maybe you got temporarily distracted by something else and are ready to re-focus your efforts on something that is of prime importance to you.
If either of these describe where you're at, ask yourself this: What would make a difference to me in this process? What would I do if I knew I could not fail? What do I need to start doing or stop doing to reach my goal before this year ends?
What step do I take next? Will I likely accomplish this goal on my own or am I more likely to reach it with the help and support of a professional coach?
Start with the end in mind. Break your goal down into bite size chunks. Determine what needs to be done each day and put it on your schedule. One step at a time gets you there. Watch how each step moves you closer to completing your goal.
You got distracted? Forget about it! Worrying about it won't get you back on track. Start where you are and take the actions necessary to reach your objective.
I work with high achievers. They have great ideas and their ideas work. Coaching helps them fine tune their process, eliminate distractions and overcome obstacles. Believe it or not intelligence, experience and insight do not necessarily transfer into action. Coaching helps you take action, achieve your goals in reasonable time frames without making unnecessary detours so that you have more time and energy to enjoy other aspects of living in the present! What can you do to have more of what you want in 2023?
