My 2017 Goals – November Update
I hope November has been a great month for you.
It certainly has for me. It’s been my best month yet in many ways.
I’ve started working with some new incredible clients, completed several big goals and already started planning my goals for 2018.
In December, set aside a couple of hours away from everyone and everything, and reflect upon 2017.
What went well for you? What have you accomplished? What are you proud of? What did you do right?
What wasn’t so great? Where have you played small? What have you avoided dealing with and shied away from?
What will you do differently in 2018?
What do you want and love to accomplish?
How do you want to grow, change, and improve?
Write it down. Plan how to do it. Who can help you?
Failing to plan is planning to fail!
Consistently great results don’t happen as a result of chance.
Be realistic but also be brave.
I plan all the time. My life started turning around when I started planning for it (and following the plan).
Below are my goals for 2017 along with the current progress status. Some of them I’ve already completed, some are in progress, and a few would be a heroic accomplishment to finish, but I’ll try.

ℹ️ If you want to expand your social or professional circle, make it a habit to regularly connect with people in that field or common interests. It may be online or offline. An important part is that you don’t do it just to get/take but also to bring/give. You need to be a person of value. Whether it’s skills, knowledge, support, friendship, connections, be someone who adds value to others.
