My goals 2011

images 1As is customary at the beginning of each year everybody makes new years resolutions and I am no different. The only difference this year is that I have set myself some goals and have not made new years resolutions this year.

I am firstly sharing my goals with others in order to be held accountable to them and secondly I am working on an action plan to achieve these goals.

So the only thing to do now is to share my goals with you. Here we go:

  1. Healthy living
    This I am sure is high on very body’s list every year. I want to live healthier this year, eating better and exercising more. Join a running club and start running more.
  2. Read more
    I love reading business / self improvement books but I don’t always make enough time to read. I want to read at least one business / self improvement book a month from now on.
  3. Business growth
    This year I will take the time to improve my business systems, delegate more responsibility and train staff more. I look forward to starting more profitable businesses going forward and retention of good staff is high on my list.
  4. Connecting with friends
    We are all so busy running around that we don’t take the time to reconnect with friends. Going forward I would like to set aside more R&R time with my family and friend. I need to switch off and enjoy life more.
  5. Repay debt
    I am sure everybody has this on their minds due to the economic situation we all find ourselves in but this year I am making a conscious decision to repay some of my debts.
  6. Giving back
    This is something I feel very passionate about. We all have so much to be thankful for and yet we all complain about non-stop. The only way we can start to enjoy and appreciate what we have is by giving back to our community. I have identified an house for children to support going forward. I can recommend this to everybody.

So there you go my goals for 2011. I am very positive that this year is going to be a great one.

Jack Canfield – 2011 goals

As discussed in my previous post I have started working through “Jack Canfield – The Success Principles’. There are 64 principles in the book. The first principle that is discussed in this book is – “take 100% responsibility” for your life.

This simply means that all the choices that you have made before have lead you to this point. This is what you have to take responsibility for and move on. This is easier said than done.

Also remember that you choices you make today will lead you to your future. You can now choice to harp on the past and what may or may not have happened OR you can focus on your achievements and your future.

So take 100% responsibility today and take action.
