THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT!
Have you defined your goals for 2020?
I meet so many people who claim they know what they want, but they have never written a plan (or a roadmap) on how to get there.
If you don't know where you're going then how do you expect to arrive at your destination?If you are in the middle of the United States (let's say Kansas) and you want get to New York City, do you just start driving... or walking... or hitchhiking... in any direction? If you head in any direction but EAST, you are going to be moving away from your final destination. If you want to know where you are going you pull out a map (or an app on your phone) and define your route.
Getting from where you are today to where your dream exists is no different. You pull out a map. What if you don't have a map? Then write your own map! Define your own mile markers. Then decide your mode of transportation. Pack your bags and GO!
I love the beginning of a new year and especially a new decade! If you saw my Instagram post yesterday you would have seen that I recounted some of my accomplishments for the past decade. It was so fun! But every one of those accomplishments was saddled with hardships. Great achievements means it takes hard work, overcoming setbacks, and the mindset to persevere. I have defined where I'm going so when the going gets tough I get tough too. I have my eye on the destination no matter which storm comes my way.
Now is the time to define your goals for 2020. What achievements do you need to accomplish in order to claim your destiny? Define them! Write your plan! Say It Out Loud! Put on your overalls and get to work!
To get started I have some questions (below in blue) I ask myself every year and I challenge you to grab a notebook or open a fresh screen on your device so you can copy and paste the text in blue... then answer the questions.
To some of you this may feel like WAY TOO MUCH WORK. And if it does then I will be the first to say maybe you're not committed to your dream. That's right. Dreams take work, determination, and A PLAN! If you aren't even willing to write your plan then you have some major frustrations on your horizon. Why am I being so brutal? Because life is.
Write your plan and then charge after it! You can do this! If you need more guidance or help simply hit "reply" and I will be happy to help!
Let's make 2020 the year to celebrate!!
From one dream chaser to the next,
What do I want to accomplish in 2020?
What is my mission/purpose in my pursuit?
Where do I see myself in the next 3-5 years?

How will I measure my progress?
Next I break down my goals so I have specific items I must accomplish every three months.
