1) How big do you want to dream?
2) How much do you want to envision?
3) How hard do you want to work?
4) How much of the past do you want to forget?
For those who are looking to set some goals in 2017, I found a pretty useful template at yearcompass.com – it’s a free to use resource, downloadable tool for you to reflect on the past year (if you have not done so already) and plan ahead for this year. While I have already set my goals using my own template, one question that I found useful was to describe 2017 in a single word, and I picked “Accelerate”. Why so?
In a nutshell, if I had to do the same exercise for 2016, the word would be “Explore”. I took up too many side projects in the past year, but I realise it was not for nothing as I was still in the exploration phase. It is now 2017 and I have a much clearer vision, so this year will be marked by putting my foot on the pedal, picking up the pace to get to where I want to be.
