It’s almost the new year, which means we’re about to hear all about resolutions, hopes and dreams, and starting anew.
All of these things are wonderful and valid, but they aren’t for me. Instead of hoping for things, I tend to do everything possible so that they universe can’t help but give me exactly what I want.
It takes a lot of hard work, but let’s conquer 2019 together.
Where do you want to be in 3, 6, 9 months from now? Have no idea?
Well, 2019 is the year of planning ahead. You might be asking, “umm, Rachel. How do I actually do that?”
Buy a calendar. A giant one. The kind that takes up a lot of wall space.
It might be a little unsightly, but it’s a reminder: A daily reminder of your goals and the steps you’re actively taking to accomplish them. No more hoping. Just doing.
On a month-to-month basis, create small and measurable steps that will help you get to where you need and want to be.
Surround Yourself With Focused, Fun, a Talented Individuals
Too many people are okay with staying still.
They say, “I don’t know what to do next” so they freeze and wait for life to happen to them. Don’t be this person in 2019.
My Dad used to say, “you are the company you keep.” He was right. Especially when you want to be successful.
This year, surround yourself with like-minded humans. They don’t have to want to same things as you, they just have to be motivated. These are the people you can bounce ideas off of, who are constantly learning and engaged in hard but important discussions.
These people make you better, and they’ll keep you honest when it comes to setting and conquering 2019.
Tackle Big Ideas
Maybe you’ve had an idea for a long time, but it feels like an impossible dream. In 2019, make it tangible.
Talk to the right people. Create an outline.
Maybe it’s a new book. A company. Every good thing starts somewhere small, in the corners of your mind, and if you’re like me, right as you fall asleep.
Stop making excuses and waiting until the “right time.”
It’s almost 2019, and it’s time to get sh*t done. With some planning and encouragement, this can be the best year yet! Let’s conquer 2019 together.
