It’s that time of the year again — everyone is doing an audit of the past 12 months and making plans on how to be better in the coming year.
A common theme I find, even in my own life, is that we often start the year strong but then fall away as the year goes by.
There are many theories as to why this is the case, but it’s not my focus in this article to list them out.
I simply want to invite you to consider the fact that we might attain more consistency if we’re not so attached to the short-term outcome of our actions.
Let your goals be process based, not result-based.
Show up each day.
Do what you said you’ll do.
And don’t judge yourself about what comes next.
If you’ve done proper planning for the new year, and simply focus on executing without judgment, you’re going to give yourself a very good chance of achieving the objectives you’ve set for yourself.
But if you judge yourself by looking at the short-term results of your actions, you may become discouraged very easily & give up prematurely — especially if you don’t see a quick return on your investment.
Show up. Take action. Let go of the outcome.
If you consistently take action in the right direction, the results you work towards will surely come to you.
Wishing you the best in the coming year.
