When something comes to an end, it’s natural to want to assess and determine how we can do better the next time.
That’s how I feel at the end of a year. A new year can represent a fresh start. A do-over.
How can I make sure that I’m primed for success and ready to meet my personal and business objectives in 2022?
I typically like to start by asking myself a very specific set of questions. I encourage you to use these questions as a starting point to help you prepare for the year ahead.
1. What specific objectives do I have? If you start to feel overwhelmed thinking about the entire year, consider splitting your goals up by quarters. That way, the goals feel more bite-sized and achievable.
2. What systems and processes do I need to put in place to support these specific objectives by quarter?
3. Are there any obstacles or barriers I foresee that could potentially hinder me from achieving these goals? What can I do to overcome these?

As I ponder these questions and think about what I need to do to experience a successful 2022, I know that I need to embody: courage, discipline, and faith. Courage to try new things that I haven’t tried before; Discipline to consistently do the things I need to do to achieve excellence; and Faith to take the steps I need to take and watch them manifest into something great.
The truth is- there are no secret formulas. At the end of the day, it’s all about improving how we stay focused on our objectives.
It’s about determining the most important next thing to do. Being intentional with our actions. And it’s also about taking time off to relax and laugh, truly enjoying the journey, and trusting the process.
