January 2015 Review

I read in a few articles this month that by January 15, 95% of people have given up on their New Year resolutions. 95%! That says a lot about how seriously we take our goals. I learned so much about myself during the annual New Year for a New You review here on the blog, but the most important takeaway was that I’ve been making the same exact mistakes for three years! I am bound and determined to be one of the 5% who creates change in 2015.

I have a few experimental systems running to follow-through on my goals, all of which I plan to share with you in the future. To track my progress + business growth, I’ll be sharing an end-month review (like so). I highly recommend you keep track of your goals and progress as well. You’ll want to measure your success and revise your efforts accordingly.

This month, I … created a whole new game plan. Mid-January, I was sitting down with my books when I realized that I had scheduled another year of work that was almost exactly the same as the last four years. But, I want different results! 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. – Albert Einstein

At the time, I was several pages into a rough draft on my next book while trying to keep my blog and shop afloat. After all, I did just triple my blog traffic, and I want to keep that momentum going! However, to write a book, I really have to retreat into the project; it’s furious work.

I couldn’t leave my daily operation like that, not right now anyway, and this wasn’t the first project I scheduled for January and then rearranged. I wasn’t sure what to work on between the holidays and the Movers & Makers Summit (end-February), but I wanted to make the most of my time.

So, I did some work with Your Best Year 2015 and filled out another “If I Knew I Could Not Fail, I Would …” exercise. That resulted in the best plan of my life,  and by that I mean, this plan wakes me up at 4:30 AM because I’m so excited to start working on it everyday. I’m going to unveil my big project in a few days, but here were some of the items on my list that inspired it:

  • Create an offer so jam-packed with value, so insanely useful that 1,000 people cannot resist it
  • Help to fund other women’s creative visions (And I’m not talking about people in some far-off land. I’m looking at YOU.)
  • Launch a course

I can hardly wait to show you how I’ve put this all together. That announcement is coming soon!
