When building your profitable practice, it’s important that you make each day count. Although most of the world sees a new year as a time to make massive changes in their lives, it’s the daily choices that lead to lasting change. That’s why New Year’s resolutions are so ineffectual. This year you can start and finish strong by making better choices each day. Here are some tips for making sure this is your best year ever:
1. Break it down. Whether you want to save for a dream home, start a business or get healthier, you need to recognize it’s going to take time. Our desire for instant gratification can lead us to give up before we even really get started pursuing our goals. Choose the one big thing you want to have by the end of the year, and then break down the steps you’ll need to take to make it happen. Then break them down even further. Come up with small tasks you can complete daily in only 10-30 minutes. That will not only help you see the goal as a journey so you don’t give up too soon, but it also makes the goal easier to tackle.
2. Track your time. We’re all busy. But many people use busyness as an excuse for keeping the status quo, even when they say they want to change. One simple way to find wasted time in your schedule is to track it for at least three days. Keep track of what you do all day long. You can use an app spreadsheet or a simple notepad to keep track. You’ll soon start to notice you spend more time watching TV, playing games and checking social media than you would have thought. Once you’re aware of the wasted time, choose you instead. Use that time to research career programs. Enjoy a hobby or spend more time with family. Whatever your goal is this year, choosing to spend your time working on it each day will make sure you end the year where you want to be.
3. Redesign your life. Most of us sleepwalk through life more often than we care to admit. If you want to live a happier, more fulfilling life, take stock of what makes you happy. What brings you joy and makes you feel alive? Now redesign your life to make sure those things are a part of it. Look back at your time tracking list. What obligations and expectations can you modify or delete entirely so you can live a life full of joy and purpose?
Make a conscious decision to choose living life to the fullest every day.
