2020 is just around the corner.
Now it’s the perfect time to start thinking about the year just gone by and how the 366 days of 2020 are going to look like for you.
Each year I sit down, conduct a year in review and plan out my goals for the next 12 months.
This strategy is one of the reasons I’ve managed to succeed in building my best life over the span of my career.
It’s a tool I also use to refine purpose for the clients that I work with. When we are able to lay out a vision of what they want their life to look like, it’s very easy to work backwards from their and build it.
So, what steps do I take to achieve this?
First things first. Reflect on the past year.
Write down all the things you have achieved and any places that have room for improvement. Doing this task gives you a benchmark to work from!
First up, take note of your final financial figures for 2019.
- The GCI you achieved.
- The number of transactions you made.
- The number of auctions you held.
- The number of pages of print advertising you achieved.
- The average VPA per transaction you met.
Then, make a list of your top ten achievements over the past year in both business and life. This is a great way to celebrate all the things you succeeded at over the past 12 months.
It’s always a good idea to write down any areas that you know have room for improvement from 2019. This gives you an opportunity to put an action plan in place to improve.
The next step I take is writing out what I want each ‘section’ of my life to look like.
Break it down into:
WORK: GCI + Number of auctions, listings, sales + Projects + Training
FINANCIAL: Savings + Super
HEALTH: Exercise + Wellbeing + Diet
LOVE: You + Partner
FRIENDS AND FAMILY: Communication + Children + Parents + Siblings + Pets
FUN AND REWARDS: Holidays + Mini breaks + Material Rewards + Experiences
This is the outline of your vision. What life would look like for you if you have #BuildYourBestLife.
This information forms the basis of your action plan, breaking down your big goals into small achievable steps.
