We are in the first week of the New Year. How did 2015 end for you? Did you accomplish all you set out to do or did you fall short … again?

What can you do to change the outcome for 2016? Here are a few steps you can take to make sure this year ends on a high note.

The first step is to imagine how you will feel at the end of the year after accomplishing all of your goals. Really think about this and give yourself a few minutes to meditate on it to experience how you will actually feel. I can assure you, it will be a much better feeling than you will experience if you do not accomplish what you set out to do. Take a five minutes out of each day for this meditation exercise.

The next step is to spend some time on Friday afternoon to write down three things you want to accomplish for the following week. And they need to be tasks that push you a little and take you out of your comfort zone. And each task needs to be something that will propel your business one step closer to your ultimate goal for yourself and your business. Do the math. That adds up to 156 very focused tasks that will build and grow your business. Do you think that will have an impact? Don’t let time get away from you again and end the year wondering what happened.

The third step you want to take is to learn how to implement anything you learn as quickly as possible. Most people know everything they need to know to grow and build their business. The problem, most of the time, is in the implementation of what they know. Taking fast action and implementing what you learn is the key to building a business. Don’t wait for that one more piece of information, for the timing to be “right”, or to get things perfect before moving forward. Done is better than perfect. Just move! You can fix it as you go along.
