Salvation. Good year!
In some ways, 2022 is a new start. In other ways, it’s a continuation of what you were already working on in 2021. Both are good. You don’t have to start over if what you were doing before worked. If that didn’t work, then a change might be a really good idea.
Part of my job is to make the resort easy and help you make the most of your time.
Before you spend your precious time doing anything, ask this question:
What is this going to accomplish?
Here are some examples for you
- Before you scroll endlessly on LinkedIn or any other social or digital medium, ask yourself what you’re going to accomplish by doing so.
- Before taking part in a controversial discussion, whether in person, in a Zoom meeting, or online, ask yourself what you will accomplish by doing it.
- Before you spend your hard-earned cash on another shiny, shiny item that promises to help you move forward, ask yourself what you will accomplish by doing so.
- Before you fight for the final say, ask yourself what you are going to accomplish by doing it.
- Before you share a post on LinkedIn, ask yourself what you will accomplish by doing it.
- Before starting a podcast, ask yourself what you are going to accomplish by doing it.
- Before recording a video to post on LinkedIn, ask yourself what you’ll accomplish by doing it.
- Before you decline an offer to be a guest on a webinar, podcast, video, or other promotional content on social or digital media, ask yourself what you will accomplish by doing so.
- Before taking on a volunteer or leadership role in a project or association, ask yourself what you will accomplish by doing it.
The answer is easy
I think you have the picture. Only you will know the answer to this question every time. It changes from situation to situation depending on what your goals, customers, business and resources allow.
If the task or action in front of you serves you, your clients, your potential clients, your referral sources, bloggers and media, and / or your loved ones, then the answer becomes much easier.
If you can’t find a meaningful result that you get by doing something, it will also make your actions and decisions a lot easier.
I want you to achieve your goals and dreams this year. To do this, you must embark on a series of achievements, large and small.
Every action doesn’t have to lead to massive accomplishment, so don’t be too hard on yourself. If your decision is that your next action will be a small step towards accomplishing one of your goals, then do it and feel good!
Once again, Happy New Year to you! I wish you pure happiness, progress, peace and good health this year, and I will be there to see it happen, smiling as I look at you.
Remember: what are you going to accomplish by doing it?
