You’ve probably already taken a bit of time to reflect on this crazy year, and think about what’s ahead of us in 2021.
I believe 2021 will be filled with opportunities for all of us. And I hope you do too, because that will give you the energy and motivation that most people are lacking.
But you’ll only reach your 2021 goals if you start today.
We all need time to relax and rejuvenate ourselves, and the holiday season is a perfect time for that.
Take that time – for yourself and your loved ones.
But don’t get sucked into the attitude of many by mailing in the rest of the year. Develop a plan to shift back into gear when the festivities have ended, because if you’re going to reach your goals in 2021, you need to finish December strong.
There’s no denying this year has been brutal, filled with challenges we never expected. Despite the roller coaster of the year, many of us have met or exceeded professional goals. Some people will throw away the rest of the year – either because it’s too late to reach their 2020 goals – or because they’ve already surpassed them. But with 2021 around the corner, now is the time to keep going.
Those that can shift gears faster, finish 2020 stronger, and start 2021 harder, are going to have a much better chance of getting everything they want next year.
What is your vision for 2021?
No matter what it is, somebody will achieve it. The question is – will it be you?
All the work starts right now. So, schedule your downtime accordingly, and develop a plan to shift back into gear for your working hours.
Hard work beats talent, if talent doesn’t work hard. I’d much rather focus on the thing I can control. So I’m going to let the hard work carry me.
