Do you want to take it to a new level this year or this decade? Here are 2 ideas to get your year kicked off right. Try them and tell us how it goes.
So here are two ways to get your year kicked off right. I no sooner celebrated the new year than hit the road. We are taking it to a whole new level and this year is going to demand so much more of me as a leader. So if you’re looking to take it to a new level this year or this decade, here are a couple ideas to get you going.
This is Jen Patterson with Agility Leadership Group where we help you build leaders, build teams, and build companies.
Whether last year was amazing or something you’re happy to see in your rearview mirror, here are two things you can do to kick this year off for results.
How much time do you spend looking at what went right versus what went wrong? Celebration is how we hardwire in success so it’s important. All you overachievers out there, you know who you are. Take time and celebrate instead of just moving on to the next thing. Take time out right now and look back over the last year. What was a new habit you started, or some progress you made, or something you feel especially proud of, and celebrate it. Feel good about it.
So do this for yourself and it’s also a really great exercise to do with your team. Bring your team together and look back over the year and talk about the things that you want to celebrate.
It’s okay to look back on your year and look at what didn’t work. Use it as a way to learn. You never know when that’s the learning that might change the trajectory of your business, your life etc.. So take a moment and think about what are the learnings you want to take from last year into this year to help you even be better. This is your opportunity to set a new vision to raise the standard. You get where you tolerate in yourself and in others. So raise the bar. What do you want to accomplish this year?
If you’re not working on your goals, you’re working on someone else’s so why don’t you make this the year you check something off your list, something that’s important to you. It will make you a better leader, I promise. So try these two things; celebrate and recalibrate and see what happens.
