Create a Blueprint for Success in 2011

by Adrian Amos

So you want to be more successful in 2011? That’s great! How are you going to get there? What does success look like? Do you have a clear vision for what success means, or is it more of a general statement like “this year, I’ll do better?”

Clearly defining your goal is an important part of achieving it. Dr. Maya Bailey suggests turning your goal into both a mission statement and an affirmation, such as: “I am so happy and grateful that I am making $500,000 or more in 2011, and I’m working 30 hours a week or less, and I am working with my ideal clients doing work I love.”

Bailey also suggests visualizing your goal clearly, and imagining what achieving it will feel like. Try to picture this outcome so clearly it becomes a movie, not just a snapshot. She also suggests looking closely at limiting beliefs and self doubts in order to remove them from your path to success.

How Would You Grade Yourself?

by Rob Wicker

Remember your elementary school report card? In addition to the core subjects, you got evaluated by the teacher on important topics such as effort, communication, and my favorite: “Uses Time Wisely.”

The economy will probably only marginally improve. So if you didn’t achieve what you wanted to last year, now is the time to figure out what you can do better in 2011.

These time management and productivity tips might help.
