I love this time of year: the sights, the sounds, the smells, the special moments with family. I even love the over-the-top decorations.
I love new beginnings and the chance to do better next year. I like a clean slate and the thought of filling the year with any number of exciting opportunities.
It never quite works out the way I hope, but this year I did better than ever growing in the direction I wanted to grow.
Part of my success was due to buying Michael Hyatt’s 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever course (hereafter BYE). I am not an affiliate (this is a non-profit blog), but the course was helpful enough to share.
What I appreciated most about the course is that it’s short and concise. There’s no filler or fluff, just five short videos packed with content that focused my thinking.
When time is short, paying more for less makes a lot of sense.
I had already scheduled a planning retreat for the end of 2014 and BYE helped me use those few precious hours effectively.
Some of my goals were a huge success, and others I didn’t meet, but still feel proud of my progress.
One goal was to start a blog and get 50 subscribers. You might not believe how hard it was for me to actually start on that goal, but I finally did and have been blogging weekly for over half the year.
I only have 8 subscribers, but I’m not sure the number matters anymore. I’ve learned a great deal from the experience and am proud I got this far. Thanks for reading!
If you want to be more intentional in 2016 I recommend that you watch Michael Hyatt’s free video series here.
It will give you a taste of what he has to offer, though I will warn you that he is not nearly as concise in his free videos as he was in the paid ones.
The free content is part of his launch for the new version of Five Days to Your Best Year Ever. You get the content for free and get a sales pitch at the end.
However you prepare for 2016, I wish you and your families all the best!
