It’s that time of year when people start looking to the future and thinking about their New Years Resolutions, of which 88% typically end in failure. Why? Because people don’t usually plan their resolutions as goals. They don’t break their resolutions down into bite-sized chunks and set deadlines for achieving them.
Instead of resolutions, they need a plan.
I’m a huge fan of Leonie Dawson, and for the first time this year I purchased her Create Your Incredible Year planners. I absolutely loved them! They take you step by step through the process of taking stock of 2012 and looking at what you’ve achieved. Next, you move onto planning what you want to get out of 2013. There is a workbook and a calendar for both editions: Life and Business.
I’ve already got a date with friends to do my 2013 vision board on Sunday afternoon, and I know it will be that much more effective now that I’ve worked on my Create Your Incredible Year planners. So if you need a bit of help getting started planning the year of your dreams, I highly recommend these workbooks. They’re PDF documents that you can print at home or have professionally printed. I used FilePrint here in the UK.
Update: One thing that I totally forgot to mention was that I’ve ALREADY SEEN RESULTS from my Incredible Year Business Planner! Things have already started to shift and change based on some of my visions that I set down in my planner. So I know it works!
