Well it's safe to say 2020 has started with a bang & blindsided us all. If you're like us, your plans & goals might have changed & left you thinking... where to from here? For some you might stay on the same path, for others you might need to pivot or adjust & for many goals / plans will change completely.
But with 3 months down & 9 to go, now is the perfect time to reflect, review & refocus personally, professionally & financially for the rest of 2020.
Below are some tips & tricks to help you set direction for the next 9 months - we can still make 2020 great.
1. Reflect, Review & Refocus
First thing's first, you need to sit down and look at your original goals & plans you set at the start of the year - personal, professional and financial focused.
REFLECT on where you are at, REVIEW if they are still the most important goals & relevant plans to be focusing on and if they are REFOCUS by making sure you have smaller tasks/stepping stones for each week or month that will allow you to tick off those goals by the end of the year. If you need to set some new goals & plans - make sure you start thinking about these now so that you have ample time to dedicate to these over the rest of 2020. We can all still make 2020 great, stay positive, stay open minded, adjust or pivot where needed, prioritise & keep looking forward.
NOTE: Our Goal Planner or Mid Year Diary are both great tools to help with this.
2. Write an action plan & set plans in place
If you are using your An Organised Life Diary, there is a section at the start of April in the diaries dedicated to writing your smaller tasks + goals right after the month of March.
Utilise this section to put pen to paper and plan those tasks and stepping stones in detail for the next 3 months. I also find it handy to write deadlines in my diary on certain dates that I want to finish tasks by so that I remain on track. It could be as small as brainstorm where to from here over the next month. Or try to achieve X, Y & Z by this date, etc. Everyone will be different.
The more stepping stones and smaller tasks you have the better.
3. Manifest Success
In order to live your best life this year, MORE THAN EVER, you really need to believe in yourself. Having a strong vision, commitment to see your goals through to the end, and the belief you can do it (no matter what) can really be the defining difference to making your dreams a reality.
Everyone has been affected by the events globally that 2020 has brought us, but we can all move forward & get through this.
It’s all about manifesting success and visualising your future. Don’t get me wrong - you will need to work very very hard, but focusing on the positives and pushing yourself forward will pay off in the long run. Stay strong and all the best for 2020
