Weight and diet is on the top 3 New Year's Resolutions for most people. Health and fitness is the case where haste makes waste, as the old saying goes. Many people start the new year with good momentum, then lose steam by the end of January. By the end of January, one-third of people quit. Only half people still stay on their New Year's resolutions after 6 months. That's a dismal statistics.
Before you jump in to make another round of New Year's resolutions, spend some quiet time by yourself to review what you have accomplished this past year and what the mistakes you made.
The majority of people don't learn enough from their mistakes or their accomplishments. It's like everyone is simply plugging along with their heads down.
Instead of repeating the same old day over and again, most people seem to repeat the same outlook, approach, and strategies.
You and I both know that no matter how good or bad your results were this year - you can always do better.
The single biggest key to improving both your performance and your results seems to go ignored by almost everybody. If you want to be at the top of your game you absolutely must review, analyze, and learn from what has already happened.
Step 1. Identify your three greatest accomplishments
Even if this year was a challenging year for you, odds are if you look close enough there's something somewhere to be proud of.
Step 2. Analyze what you learned from each accomplishment
Now that you have identified your three greatest accomplishments, go back to each one. This time though identify exactly what you learned or were reminded of by each of them.
Step 3. Identify your biggest disappointments
Practically every company and individual resists analyzing their mistakes. That's a shame because this is where the best learning comes from.
Step 4. Analyze what you learned from each failure or disappointment
No matter how great everything in life is going - we all make mistakes. The trick here is to really analyze them, what preceded them, what could you have done differently, and how can you prevent them in the future.
Step 5. Identify how you limited yourself last year and how can you stop
Were there certain actions you took or didn't take that came back to haunt you? In order to make sure you don't limit yourself again - you need to bring these self-defeating actions to the surface, confront them, and most importantly determine what you must do differently to make sure you don't make the same mistakes all over again.
Step 6. Pragmatically review the information you have gathered
The goal of this exercise is not simply to know yourself and your business better but to actually use the information to make certain next year far surpasses this year.
What are the big takeaways from answering each question? What do you know about yourself or your business that you didn't realize or weren't thinking about?
Obviously, having this list isn't going to do it all, you still need to take this new knowledge and use it.
Fortunately, that's what the last question is centered around. And here it is...
Step 7: Use this Information to amaze yourself next year
The purpose here is to build in to your schedule, your interactions, your management style or whatever else you've surfaced in the previous questions and build yourself a new better approach.
The final step is to incorporate it into a plan for the next year. Wish you the best luck!
