It's amazing to be starting a brand new year! With each new year comes resolutions.
In today's episode I want to discuss with you my lessons that I learned in 2014. I will be sharing with you 3 things I've learned and how I turned them into New Years' Resolutions that you can apply in your life.
1. Be Consistent and Don't Stop What You Started
This is something I've really come to learn! If you take a look at my podcast, you'll see that I haven't posted a new episode since October 31st, 2014.
I was busy with a school project in November and also tried to write a novel during NaNoWriMo which caused me to neglect posting new episodes.
In December, I was busy with recording new interviews for the podcast, making new connections with business leaders, and I also wrote a non-fiction book. Not to mention, being busy with the holidays.
Again I failed to post new episodes. This caused me to have a dormant podcast for 2 months!
Starting in 2015, I am saying NO MORE! That's why I made it a New Years' Resolution to stay consistent. I believe this is something you need to do as well if you want to accomplish any goal this year.
2. Focus and Don't Spread Yourself Too Thin
I've gotta be honest, because I'm a young millennial entrepreneur, I'm guilty of having tons of ideas! This is awesome but also can cause problems.
Every single mentor I've talked with and every friend I've messaged with new ideas has told me to FOCUS!
A great idea that a friend of mine had was to get a notebook to write down all of my ideas into.
But let's face it, it's hard to FOCUS! That's why this is one of the hardest resolutions I think I've given myself.
However, I want to be commited to YOU as my listener of Money Making Millennials. That's why I've placed it as a priority and my focus for 2015. I think if you want to achieve any of your goals, you should do the same.
3. Set Managable Goals
The key part of this is MANAGEABLE goals. We can all write down great goals but never achieve them because they are way too big of a goal to achieve.
If you want to write a book, like me, don't make writing a book just one goal. Have subgoals like:
- Write 15 minutes today
- Edit Chapter 1
- Dictate Chapter 11
- Transcribe The Book
This allows you to accomplish more and reach your bigger goal quicker.
Even though we are going to talk about goals a little more in a later episode, I wanted to go ahead and give you this as a New Years' Resolution. I really believe it will help you achieve any of your goals in 2015.
