Dear New Year, Bring it On!
I’m always excited about possibility and my senses are keenly aware of the expansion that’s forthcoming in 2015. Not just for me and my business, but for my friends and family, and fellowpreneurs I don’t even know yet.
Every year I like to look at highlights of my life in a visual timetable. I’ve borrowed this concept from one of my speech coaches because I’m nervous of forgetting important topics on stage. We’re not presenting (except to ourselves) so I love this exercise to identify life events and business accomplishments.
Here’s a portion of my timeline for 2014 – want to draw one for yourself?
January – Lived in a ski house, seaside furnished apartment and Puerto Rico.
February – Worked from the slopes. Triple time on weekends.
March – Moved in to my farmhouse – I love it! A bittersweet time in my life.
April – Traveled to Prague and Budapest. Got pampered. Really fell in love.
May – Grateful for 3 new clients and writing projects.
June – Wonderful recruiting project.
July – Finished my first children’s book. Family time. Working at the island and Rye Beach.
August – Super busy with client work.
September – Woo Hoo! The team is cranking! Speaking gigs, articles and panels.
October – Expo talk, trips to NY, birthday love, VIP days.
November – Hiring to fill positions – VIP days.
December – Big expansion plans Great referrals Family time Holiday surprises.
Late December – Booking new work, webinars and FUN for 2015!
Remember, you can add whatever events or accomplishments you like to your own timetable. They can be words or images. Simple or complicated. Pictures or photos. If you create a digital version, it can have links or music or…
In reality, this is a visual map you’ve created for yourself, much like a PR or Promotions Business Building Map we create with clients (with your goals in mind)!
It’s no surprise that I love to schedule my life around my business and am blessed with a talented team to help me get there. I’ve never been a 9 to 5 er, but I can work like the dickens!
When you buy your new calendar, fill in your vacations first, even if it’s just an idea. Then plan your work around it. Writing your dreams on paper is the first step toward making it happen. Then, keep writing.
Wishing You Happiness, Health and Prosperity in 2015.
