Happy New Year and All That – Let’s Make it Real this Time

At this time of year, every one gets excited.

People make resolutions. They even set goals. A few of them may even write them out and stick them on their mirror.

But the holidays end and it’s back to real life.

And then, before you know it, another year has passed and life hasn’t changed too much. In fact, it might even be a bit worse. A few more pounds around the gut, more money on the ‘ol credit cards, another vacation not taken… you get the picture.

Real Change

We all know that making resolutions and making goals is great. The next step is visualizing, right?

Well yes.

But there’s more. You’ve got to take real, deliberate, sometimes painful daily action.

This is where we lose most people.

Oh what? You mean to have and do all the cool things I want I have to work for them? Yup.

It requires a lot of deliberate effort. Smart, effective, consistent action is what separates those who have and do what they want from those who don’t.


If you want this year, 2013 to be “the best year ever!” then decide what it is you need to do. Map it out. Make sure the plan is sound. Set achievable milestones. And all the stuff you already know. Then…

Get to work. Take action every day.

Here’s to an awesome 2013!
