Do Something Different!

At the start of a new year, it is important to think about what you would like to achieve or accomplish during the coming year. Is there a skill you wish to enhance? Maybe an initiative you want to lead? A group you want to join? A revenue figure you aspire to achieving? Whatever it might be, strive to do something different this year!

One of the biggest mistakes you can make in life is to continue to do more of the same. Without change, there is little personal growth and only missed opportunities to become more than you are today! So challenge yourself to break new ground this year.

Here are three steps to finding your something new and different:

  1. Reflect on the past year and write down the items you are proudest of achieving both personally and professionally. Why were they so important to you? What do they have in common?
  2. Now envision yourself a year from now and think about what you would like to be saying and feeling about the year just passed. What would change?
  3. What would you have to do differently to make this a reality?
