2015 – Your Most Successful Year

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

Are you really prepared to make this forthcoming year successful?


Now perhaps is the time to begin.

Why begin now vs. after?

The Early Riser: The Early bird gets more worms
There’s a good deal to get done generally in business for a lot of people – preparation, scheduling jobs, delegating, if mandatory, hiring, optimizing strategies, practicing talking subjects, practicing close, training staff, etc.

Now’s the time to get going; not January.. Perhaps not even December.

There are several other edges.

Great Pacing vs. Frenetic Last Minute Gasp
Those who begin preparing earlier tend to have what I call pacing that is great – they aren’t running at the last minute which keeps the brain ticking certainly – so you can make practical work instead of frenetic last minute work. Who would like to purchase from a person who’s frenetically attempting to put advertising stuff together?
The Build for Breakthroughs
Breakthroughs can occur over the year – but it takes some time to create the bases e.g. the systems, the practices, the knowhow, the lessons, the fine-tunings etc.

Bottom line – now is the time to begin.

You may say “But Sunil, I’ve soooooo many things to do first”. I comprehend, but you have to consider the choices of remaining in short-term preparation (current stuff) vs. long term preparation (breakthrough over time, less pressure, more imagination with more income).

The best way to begin?

Begin with a group of objects
Begin with four goals for the year: make these specific and measurable.

Consider these objects against your mission or vision
Revise the goals (or at least the bulk of them) to align with your mission or vision statement.

Strategy one year: begin with a rough set strategy that’s adaptable
Break into landmarks for the year down these four objects. Prepare to alter these as you go. The edge of having these up front is the same edge a boat captain has to establish landmarks or manner stages within their journey – it empowers them in order to examine the avoidable dislocations and to transform rapidly from the set strategy.

Break out year: Plan longer duration
Do exactly the same exercise for a five year to ten year strategy. Establish and milestones for each year leading up the ending year. This practice will allow you to break from the short-term thinking and break into thinking about the best way to create the subsequent year.

The argument for doing this from Brain Science (Socio Cognitive Neuroscience)

More than 33 percent of the mind is devoted to vision processing – getting what the year may look like in terms of a strategy and the vision gets the mind to start making more intriguing links.
The brain simply reacts to activities: the action of creating these landmarks will put the seeds for replying questions that we often blow off: e.g. how can we make this work? Who do we should employ? How can we raise the funds? How much do we must sell? Is this worth doing? What’s worth doing and what isn’t worth doing? The rationale for paralysis is generally deficiency of ‘beginning activities’.
Part of your brain has to be wondering “Why do we not have a strategy or something definite set up for next year?” Why let this worry or anxiety to improvement? Manage it so you could give your brain to the initiation needed to make alternatives happen for solving problems and attaining goals.
