Set For Success: 10 Ways To Set Yourself Up For Success In 2021

My suggestion... start this year very different to every other year; especially if you feel busy or overwhelmed already.

It can be easy just to pick up where you left off in 2020 and get buried in daily tasks, overthinking or worse overwhelm stagnation.  So this post is a gentle reminder to take the time you need to arm yourself for the year ahead.

This means stepping away from working ‘in’ your business and devoting even a small amount of time to working ‘on’ it.

You probably heard many times in 2020 that “we’re all in the same boat” well I’m here to say we’re not all in the same boat.  We’re all in the same body of water but some of us are in ships, some are in yachts, some are in canoes, some are holding onto other people’s boats (the employees) and some are treading water and just staying afloat.  [Thanks goes out to mindset mentor Susanne Evans for this analogy].

How to start planning for 2021 and make it your best year yet!

Here we are at THAT time of year.

The time when those who have already created a plan for 2021 are sitting pretty, safe in the knowledge that they have it all mapped out.

And then there’s the rest, who don’t. Who might be a little overwhelmed by all this talk of planning, setting goals, smashing 2021 and so on – especially if 2020 hasn’t lived up to expectations.

Which is why I’m going to share with you the exact system I use to plan my year - both personally and professionally in four steps.

 

Step 1: Plan Your Personal Life First

November Newsletter 2020: How to get motivated, get productive & get things done

Welcome to the November 2020 B.G.I. newsletter.  I must admit, I do love these Autumn months!

It feels like something magical happens.  The air is crisper and clearer, the trees turn from pine green to an array of gold, copper, and bronze and the sense of something new and exciting happening lingers around every corner.

There is no feeling more satisfying than dusting off my boots, wrapping up in a cosy coat, hat and gloves and going on a riverbank walk into town. I love the smell of wood burner fires, the crisp air and vibrant autumnal landscape colours.  Having lived in Queensland, Australia for the past 16 years this is a novelty I have not yet tired of.

Autumn feels like a fresh start, a new beginning making way for new ideas and fresh perspectives, bolstering the drive to get motivated, get productive and get things done.

This is especially true for businesses.  Even during these uncertain times, according to Inc.com, productivity is at its peak during...

Are you juggling so many things that sometimes you become the busy fool going around in circles achieving very little, rather than prioritising, taking one thing at a time, and most importantly, taking the action to get it done?

Well, trust me you’re not alone… I think 99% of people reading this would have felt this way at some point in their life.  I’ve been guilty of this so many times in both my business and life, (especially when COVID hit earlier this year) but sometimes you gotta say enough and just Get into Action and Get It Done.

After all, we all get the same 24 hours in a day, but the question is; Have you made specific choices (and plans!), that allows you to make the most of every day?

Here are my top six hints to becoming more productive and achieving more…
