For Impact


Today Is A Tabula Rasa for 2011

For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

Today, everyone in the For Impact Community has a blank tablet/clean slate. What we do with 2011 is up to each one of us. Make this THE breakthrough year for yourself, your team and your organization!

One great way to start: Don’t begin this year and this week and this day by doing all the same ‘STUFF’ you did last year.

Before you get caught up in a bunch of Covey Quadrant III (Urgent, but Not Important) or even Quadrant I (Urgent and Important) activities… Take this week to work on QUADRANT II (IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT).

Write out your GOALS (Big, Hairy, Audacious or Otherwise). Map out your ACTION PLAN. Then, ACT (EXECUTE).

***If you need a little help with the whole ‘GOAL-SETTING’ thing… check out a few of Brian Tracy’s 50 books! Three of my favorites around GOALS are:

    1. GOALS!: (Duh?) How to Get Everything You Want – Faster than You Ever Thought Possible.
    2. SUCCESS IS A JOURNEY: Making Your Life A Grand Adventure.
    3. EAT THAT FROG!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time.

Note: It’s January 3rd!!! (One of my favorite ‘numbers’)

Do 3 things today that will get you started on the right proverbial track for 2011!!
