The New Year is almost upon us, make the most of the last few days of 2015 by reviewing what happened. Spend 30 minutes on this exercise, set a timer. It matters that you spend enough time looking back but not too much that you fail to move forward, so set your timer for 30minutes and stick to it.
Take a piece of paper, fold it in half and on the right hand side of the page list all of the things that you want to celebrate from 2015, the successes that you had, the things that you are proud of, the courageous actions that you took that resulted in success.
On the left hand side of the page list the actions that you didn’t take in 2015, the opportunities that you procrastinated over and missed.
It is important that you set that timer as I don’t want this exercise to be one of those ‘with the benefit of hindsight’…blah, blah, blah’s where you start to mentally beat yourself up, because with the benefit of hindsight then we would all be multi-bajillionnaires (yes I made that word up!).
3A’s for Success Model
The point of this exercise is to provide yourself with the fuel that you will need to make 2016 your best year ever, which leads me on to my 3A’s for Success Model.
- Action. Take action to get different results, bigger action leads to bigger results
- Accountability. Get accountable to someone, friends, peers a coach or mentoring group. Results come from getting serious and becoming responsible for delivering on your intentions
- Achievement. These come from your commitment to the first two A’s the bigger the commitment the greater the results.
