Maybe Clear vision means seeing what you have missed in the past? Maybe it is like Saul having the scales removed to see the people right in front of you or A new prespective of what you thought of how things would be in 2020…What Will You Do? What have you learned the surprised you since this year began? One is one thing that is working well or one silver lining through the challenges?
A new year comes wrapped as the gift of a clean slate; it provides a do-over, a fresh start.
My favorite thing to do on New Year’s Eve is to look back and reflect on the year behind me, then look ahead. I savor the moments that brought me joy, as well as my accomplishments. After that, I look ahead to the new year, (keeping those joyous moments and accomplishments in mind), and plan for what I envision should come next.
In 2019 I set out to accomplish many things, including booking 100 speaking engagements, (currently at 96!), connecting with 10,000 people on LinkedIn, (currently at 15,758!), embracing our new empty nesting lifestyle with my husband Greg, (so far, so good!), and becoming the woman I’ve always meant to be, (personally and professionally).
Overall, I’m impressed and blessed by all that I accomplished in 2019. Though I may not have met every goal at 100%, I love my life, my family, and the work I’m compelled to do. On top of all that love and excitement, I also wrote my fifth book this year and I’m enjoying every second of spreading the Pineapple Principle around the world. With all that said, there’s only one thing left to do in 2019…start planning for 2020! This new year I have some big goals, and I’m hoping you’ll join me in making them happen.
In keeping with the previous year’s preparations, step one is to choose a focus word (in 2019 that word was “full/fulfilled” – not “busy”!). In 2020, my focus word will be “intentional” (by choice, focused). With that in mind, I’ll be ready to start reaching my 2020 goals of booking 90 speaking engagements, getting back on track with my exercise since my bike accident, hosting three retreats, immersing myself in a new Bible study, and continuing to create and love the life I choose to build up and live each day.
As you begin the new year, I encourage you to join me in choosing a focus word that’s close to your heart. Then, I empower you to keep this word on your mind as you move through the year, (and your goals!), while making decisions that will continue leading you to living your exceptional life!
