If you continue to do the same things, you get the same outcomes.
How many times have you read a book, a blog and had a light bulb moment! Lots of times if you are anything like me. How many times have you done this and never done anything about it? Lots of times if you are anything like me.
So if you want change, it requires you to take action. If you do one small thing everyday to move yourself forward within a week that’s 7 things, within a month it’s 28 and change happens more and more consistently.
Do you know what the average attention span is? 8 seconds. Do you know what the attention span of a goldfish is? 10 seconds! We live in fast paced times so in order to follow through on your goals, you need to focus everyday and cut down all those distractions.

So, write down what you want to achieve in the next year. Be specific and focus on what you do want rather than what you don’t. Put as much detail in as you can. What you’ll be doing, where, with who, whats important about this goal and what difference it will make to your life. If developing this solution is difficult start with what you don’t want and find the opposite
What are the opportunities that this will bring for you?
What obstacles are getting in your way and how will you deal with these?
Write a plan, it doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s just a start and you can adjust it as you go.
Take a look at the plan – does it excite you and make you feel alive or does it scare you?
Are you confident you can achieve it or maybe you need help from someone like me?
So I’ve shared some thoughts briefly about the importance of a plan. A goal without a plan is just a wish. So start somewhere, write it down and start shaping your tomorrow, today.
‘Even if you are on the right road, if you just stand there you’ll get run over.’
