It's the first Monday in January.
Start of a new year, hey a new decade even!
Have you decided on what your goals or resolutions are going to be for the year ahead?
If not, maybe this will help you frame them.
I came across a post yesterday on Anthony Iannarino's blog that suggested via Chris Rogan that you should pick 3 words for the year to keep you on track.
The idea is that you only pick 3, not 1 not 4, just 3 words that act as a theme for the decisions and actions that will guide you for the year. The words should be positive and meaningful to you. Think of them as three pillars that will be the foundation of what you want to concentrate on for the year.
My 3 words are Win. Platform. Intent.
1. Win - as in "win the day". This is something that Tim Ferriss suggests that by having a good morning routine this will set you up for winning the day. This might be a combination of writing, exercise, reading, gratitude, meditation that you build a daily routine around and gives you an energetic bounce to your day.
2. Platform - Your personal brand is so important these days. I want to develop my brand and engage consistently on LinkedIn and other platforms through blogs and videos.
3. Intent - This for me is about having purpose and focussing on the goals that I want to achieve and avoiding 'drift'.
The idea is that once you have these 3 words that you have something to reflect on for the year, then you break them into SMART goals to make them more tangible.
