How to make time count those last couple of weeks of the year
Now we’re approaching the end of the year, I am looking back on this year and the goals I set out at the beginning. Where has the year gone! Right? Now how can you make your time count?
There certainly some goals that have slipped through the cracks for some reason. Now I could think, ok there are only a couple of weeks left, that’s never going to happen or I could get really focused and make things happen. Are you with me?
Perhaps you just got too busy being busy. Or, looking at those goals you would still like to achieve, you might find that they didn’t happen because they call you out of your comfort zone. You might find that your mind starts to throw objections at you or you get a sense of resistance when you think about what is needed. When you can embrace the resistance or fears, you grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur. Instead of ignoring them, work through them.
Your mind just doesn’t like getting out of the comfort zone, it wants to stay safe. That is just how the brain works. Unfortunately, being in the comfort zone doesn’t get you extraordinary results. That doesn’t mean you have to stay in your comfort zone. You can certainly stretch. You can get out of your own way.
The thing is, how you feel about what you want to achieve will predict whether you’ll take action or not. When you change your perspective and break through limiting beliefs, your outcome changes too. Remember that whatever you do, you always create an outcome, whether you like it or not.
Ask yourself what you would do if you couldn’t fail. Ask yourself what the person who achieves that goal would do, think and feel. Who do you need to become?
Once you’ve made the decision to go for your goal, use the vision of your goal to create action steps and plan them in. What do you need to do consistently? Perhaps there are milestones along the way?
Make an action plan for your goal. What do you need to stay on track? What do you need to say no to? How can you be accountable? Be very selective in who you are accountable to though. Choose someone who is supportive, positive, but can also challenge you when needed. Someone who can give you feedback and support you in evaluating your course of action.
If you would like support and accountability in making those last weeks before the end of the year count and create momentum for next year, I would love to invite you to schedule a clarity session here. I am looking forward to talk with you.
