Episode 360 - How to Have Your Best Year Ever!

Ep. 360

The things we put our time and focus on will come to fruition, regardless of whether that time and focus were devoted intentionally to create that outcome. This means that if we don't focus on anything in particular for 3 or 4 months, we will almost surely accomplish nothing throughout that quarter. But it also means we can develop an intentional way of creating our reality.

In this episode, we go through some tips to start the new year, focusing on what matters most: making 2023 your best year ever. Studies show that over 80% of New Year's resolutions are abandoned two weeks into the new year. To solve this issue, we developed a simple yet powerful technique to create a measurable and achievable action plan to stick to and crush your goals.

You'll learn about the big three habits that will help you design your vision and goals, measure your progress, and keep yourself accountable. We also discuss the differences between vision and goals, how to set them clearly, and why developing a vision for each key role is crucial. You'll also learn the words you must avoid at all costs when setting your goals, how to rely on others to help you keep yourself accountable, and so much more.

Tune in to Episode 360 of Becoming Your Best, set yourself up for success, and make 2023 your best year ever!
