“Five years from now you will arrive, the question is... where?”- Jim Rohn.

Let's face it -2020 was a long day's journey into night... In fact, Rod Serling would have loved it...(for those who don't know who he is, check out the "Twilight Zone" on Nick).

With so much turmoil, it was easy to lose sight of our goals, and for many to fall into depression.

But I'm here to help you find your way through 'analysis paralysis' and the overwhelm that comes with it.

🎯Do you have a goal?

🎯Do want to crush it in 2021?

Let's go!!!

1. First off, define your end-goal, "What do you want?"

In aviation, we refer to this as a "Master Plan"; a 20-year long-term development program, broken down into 5-year increments - where they plan, measure, adjust, and pivot (if need be).

2. Find models that have worked for others.

What can you learn from him/her? What were their wins, and most of all their mistakes? Remember, success leaves clues!! Nothing is new - there are just newer ways of doing it!!

3. Then, see if you can figure out how they did it.

This is where research comes in-reverse engineer the steps - you may be able to improve on the original.

4. At this point, strategy kicks in.

Make a list of 5 actions you can take daily/weekly to bring you closer to your goal -This is really about persistence!!! Commit to those actions- no matter what

5. Check your progress:

This is the key to success in business. You analyze what went right. assess what went wrong, and adjust - aren't you a work in progress? So why should your "biz" be any different?

Listen, setting big goals can be intimidating-I know. But if you break them into actionable steps, you can apply a process - which over time it will bear results.

Of course, you'll mess up-we all do, but a goal delayed, is never a goal denied. What matters most is that you'll show up- EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

Success doesn’t just find you. You have to go out and get it.-Unknown

Achieving your "Master Plan" isn't difficult. Take small but impactful actions every day to get there.
