As you wake up on this awesome day, the first day of 2015, it truly is an awesome day. Really, it is. Most of you don’t have to work today, and secondly if you are reading this, congratulations, you made it to the next year.
The question that I have on my mind this morning is this. What now?
2014 was a great year. I accomplished more in 2014 than I did in almost any other year in my life. So what do I do now?
The more goals I set, the more commitments I keep, the more I want to do. The bar keeps getting raised. What I thought was a big deal two years ago, is no longer that big of a deal anymore, you shouldn’t think so either. You have to raise the bar.
I remember running an 8 minute mile for the first time. I thought I was going to die. But immediately I raised the bar and said, now I have to run 8 minute miles for 3 miles, then for 6 miles, then 10, then for 13.1. I haven’t accomplished the last one just yet. Close, but just haven’t made it yet. Raise the bar.
What is your “what now?” Many of the people I know are killing it. Good jobs, great families, enough income that they aren’t starving. So I ask them “what now” . You have to have a “what now”. This is what life is about.
We have three things we must constantly do;
- 1) consider the past
- 2) concentrate on the present
- 3) think and plan for the future.
Too many people do the first two more than they do number three. Give each area enough time to make the decisions that need to be made. But on this first day of 2015, I challenge you to really think about these three things today. Spend most of your time reflecting on 2014 enough to make some good decisions about what you will do in 2015. You will have plenty of time tomorrow to concentrate on the present.
I am currently meeting with clients and discussing commitments and goals for their life in 2015 and beyond. If you are someone who has set goals, made commitments, and fell short on them. It means your system doesn’t work. Maybe my system will work for you. If you are interested in meeting with me one on one via face to face or over the phone. Please go to thebrianwillett.com and send me a request. I am currently meeting with clients at a reduced rate of $100 an hour.
What now? Only you can decide what that will be.
To your success and your future.
