10 things to do to make this your best year ever
1. Reflect on what you've done in the past year
Assess yourself in different areas of your life: finances, family, relationships, health, career, etc.
2. Identify what things you did well and what things need to be improved
And also identify what you want to continue or stop
3. Look to others for ideas on what to do
Many successful entrepreneurs have annual plans they publish online - you can steal ideas from them
4. Align with your long-term plan
Your annual plan should be in alignment with your 5 and 10-year plans. You do have those right?
5. Align with your 'team'
Sometimes it's your partner and your family. Other times you have a team of people you're working with for a business.
6. Enlist support
Sometimes, you need resources or people to help you with your annual plans. Are they aware that you need their help?
7. Tell the people that need to know
Even if you only have a partner to tell, telling them introduces accountability.
8. Note your progress
Every week, write down what you've accomplished. How does it align with your annual plan?
9. Make time to review your plan
Say every last Sunday of the month - take the time to review your annual plan, your progress and what you need to do to get it on track
10. Schedule it
Translate your annual plan into monthly, weekly and daily actions. And then get it in the calendar.
