Don't leave this until December 31st


If you haven't already started, right now is next best time to start thinking about 2021 and how you are going to make it a great year for you. 

If you haven't already, take a look back at all the good things over the last year. Our tendency is to focus on the negative things first, so this is a really useful exercise as you set yourself up to plan for 2021. What are you proud of, what have you achieved, how have you made a difference, what are you grateful for, and so on. 

Who do you want to be?

WHO are you now compared with last year? How have you grown as a person? Who do you want to become or what do you want to become more of in 2021.

What do you want to have and do?

Make a list of all the things that you want to have and do in 2021 and beyond, in all areas of your life. 

  • What experiences do you want to have?
  • What sort of people do you want to be spending your time with?
  • How much money do you want to earn? 
  • How much do you you want to save? 
  • Is there anything about health or fitness you want to change?
  • What about hobbies and pastimes and time with family and friends? 
  • Are there any "things" you want in 2021: a new car or kitchen perhaps, or particular holidays or trips? 
  • What do you want to happen in your career to support all that.

Make it a long list. 


Look at your list. Which are the most important goals in each area of your life: career, family and friends, finance, health, contribution, etc? 

Which one, when you achieve it, will make the biggest difference to your life? Decide when you are going to achieve it by (the actual date). Now write the goal in the present tense "It is [date] and I have achieved [goal].
