Listen to this week’s episode:

67. Planning Your 2020 Success Now

I’m not Barbara Walters, but this is 2020 (well almost).

In Episode 67 we jump right into planning next year.  Why start now?  There are holiday cookies to enjoy.  Parties to go to.  And in between, you have to squeeze in some client work.

That is THE EXACT reason to get started now.  Because you are starting to wind down and that means your creativity will start to ramp up.  Meaning you will have some of your greatest ideas for next year – RIGHT NOW!  Do you have to create an elaborate plan? Nah, but you do want to get a jump start by capturing those ideas.  In this week’s episode, I share with you the plan to get things rolling to have your best year yet in 2020.  Give it a listen here.

First, a special takeaway that I didn’t include in the episode.

Because I love you all that much.  I actually meant to include this in the episode and then forgot.  Oy the holidays.  So this year I didn’t follow this system, but I did in previous years.  It took me FOREVER to get going and start getting traction. I did manage to get some traction, but it took a LOT longer. I truly attribute it to not giving myself the time to properly plan.  So, the system works. Get all the details here.

You have to look backward in order to move forward.

Say what? That probably sounds a little counterintuitive, looking back in order to go forward. But you can’t see what worked and more importantly what didn’t if you are looking forward and don’t do some reflection.

If you are like me, you may be thinking, I can’t even remember what happened last month let alone all year.  Well, that’s where your planner comes in handy.  Don’t have one? Add it to the MUST HAVE list for next year.  I have a couple of recommendations that are my favorites.  YES, I have more than one.  I’m a planner girl, what can I say?  Office supplies are my love language.

In the episode I recommend that you do some of the following when reviewing your year:

  1. Document highlights in your year?
  2. Revisit your goals if you wrote them down how did you do financially, emotionally, mentally and physically?
  3. What did you learn along the way?
  4. Did you take any detours?

Celebrate your wins.

As entrepreneurs, we may find ourselves focusing on all the “things” we are doing “wrong”. Keeping us from celebrating all the “things” that went well, what we learned and that turned out even better than we could have imagined. I share some of my big wins this year and not a single one had to do with the increase in the number of clients, money or goal crushing.  Yes, those rocked too. But the other lessons I shared here were even more important to celebrate.

What’s the why behind your goals for next year?

The remainder of the episode I delve into some mindset shifts. I share with you a quote from a great book I’m reading called The Complete Works of Florence Shinn and how paying specific attention to where our thoughts lead us will impact our success or failure.  This book will change your life (and that’s a big promise!) Check out the episode to get the complete skinny on why mindset affects the outcome of your success or failure.

I wrap up the episode by encouraging you to create and follow a morning routine.  I shared the following ideas and resource to get you started:

  1. Start the day with Gratitude
  2. Fine-tune your brain with positivity and knowledge that will improve you not just your business.
  3. Identify 3 MUST do’s for the day and make sure they light you up. Otherwise, kick them to the curb and try again.

I recommended The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. And if you like that one, you can add The Miracle Equation to your list as well.  This is on my list to read at the beginning of 2020.

Lastly, give yourself the gift of time to recharge!

A toast to your continued and overwhelming success in 2020.  Thanks for a great 2019, I can’t wait to see what you do next year! Share with me what your #1 goal is for 2020 over on the facebook page here.  Until next week, be well.
