Forbes magazine reported that only 8% of New Year’s resolutions are ever achieved.
With the big ball ready to drop in just a few short weeks, it’s time for each of us to be thinking about what we hope to achieve in 2016. Here’s my plan to ensure you are not part of the 92% that fail.
Over This Coming Week:
- Think about what you are committed to doing or not doing in 2016.
- Write down your goals – detailed out specifically and in a single sentence for each.
- Limit your goals to 3-5. Fewer is better – you can always add new goals after you’ve cleared your initial list).
I’ll share a formula to help you dramatically improve your chances of sticking with your goal and achieving them when everyone else has forgotten what they set out to do!
Leading Up to the New Year:
In the following weeks we’ll put our plan into action so that when January 1st comes around you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
Join me by sharing your plans directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will respond to every note personally.
Special Note of Thanks:
As we in the USA enjoy a long Thanksgiving weekend, I’d like to take this opportunity to share my thanks to each of you. Together we’ve discussed some of the most important issues facing organizations and the people that run them. We’ve looked at careers, personal development and the new meaning of leadership.
All along the way, I’ve received invaluable feedback from you, and your comments and contributions are an important part of developing the New Leadership Challenge.
Thank you and I look forward to continuing the conversation in 2016 and beyond.
