It’s been said that people tend to overestimate what they can accomplish in a year but underestimate what they can accomplish in a decade.
I’m not sure if that has been scientifically proven but one thing I know for sure is that when I create a plan, I accomplish more. Period!
In college, I started a list of life objectives some that I thought would be impossible to accomplish. Since that time it has been fun to see the list dwindle.
In fact, each year my wife and I take time to evaluate, dream, add too and update our 1-3 year plan.
This practice keeps things fresh, allows us to be thankful for the many blessings we have received through the years and helps us keep our life goals aligned with one another.
Some of the areas we talk about include family, marriage, vacation, money, health, etc.
I encourage you to carve out some time to pause, look at your life and get some plans drawn up so that you can make the most of your year.
To help you do that I have a planning guide that you can use for free. Go ahead and download it at your convenience (no opt-in required). I hope you find it easy to use :)
Let me know if you would like some help walking through the process.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
