Are you wondering if there’s even a point to setting goals and creating plans for your life & business? I’m here to tell you that there absolutely is & here’s why…
I was having a conversation with a friend last week & she said she wasn’t sure she wanted to set any goals or make plans for the new year.
I can understand how she could feel that way. I think we can all agree that 2020 did not turn out like any of us planned. I don’t know about ya’ll, but there have been times that it’s been hard for me to have any hope or see the light at the end of the tunnel this year.
Having goals and something to focus on achieving each day, has without a doubt helped to keep me from going completely over the edge this year.
Sure, a lot of my plans changed and a lot of goals had to be delayed, but when I look back at this year, I can see that I made significant progress in many areas that I might not have otherwise.
Looking at that daily to do list, my weekly priorities and project planning gave me a sense of control and accomplishment when it felt like there was nothing else I could do.
You see, planning for the future and setting goals isn’t about creating a perfect checklist for the year (or month or day) so that everything magically falls in place.
The purpose of setting goals and planning is to give ourselves a path to follow and targets to reach that help us achieve our dreams and to be able to get back on track when we stumble or have a setback.
✨ “Plans are dreams in the making…” ✨
I think it’s more important than ever that we set goals and make plans for 2021, even though we may not know what 2021 holds for us.
We are all here for a purpose, we all have unique personalities and passions and ways that we can make a difference through our lives and businesses.
It’s time to dream again, to plan again, to hope again, to try again…
No matter what happens next year, we still have so many opportunities to enjoy life, to reach our goals, to grow our businesses, and to make a difference.
That’s why I’m offering my annual planning challenge during Dec 28-30 where I’ll be sharing training, worksheets, resources, and encouragement to help dream, plan and set goals for the new year. You can get access to the replay here.
