Christmas is just about over. Soon, it’d be New Year’s Day. Yet another year has passed. Prepared your new year resolutions yet?…
Leave the past behind, and start looking forward! 2005 is coming up soon, and what better time to start planning for the future than the start of a new year? Be it losing weight, getting into a new romantic relationship, or preparing for a marathon, start now! And while you’re at it, why not start planning for the next decade or so as well?
Anthony Robbins (“self-help guru”) once mentioned that when we plan, we often plan to do or achieve too much within a year, but often plan to do or achieve too little within ten years.
That commentary on how we plan has been stuck in my head ever since. Now everytime I plan, I make sure I remember to set more lofty long-term ten-year goals, while making sure I plan great (but not unachievable) shorter-term goals for the next year.
So when you start planning your new year resolutions, why don’t you start on planning your great and lofty “new decade” resolutions as well?
