The One Thing I Do at the Beginning of Each Year

The One Thing I Do at the Beginning of Each Year

One ritual I perform enables me to enter a new year “on purpose.” After I invest a morning reviewing the previous year, I spend the second half of the day previewing the new year. Once again, I think and I write as I open a new chapter of my life.

I don’t simply create a list of goals, although some of the items I will list below feel a lot like a “goal.” I like to view it as an “action” list and a “standard” list. What are the actions I plan to take and what are the standards I plan to live by over the next year?

Here are the issues I address to create the goals, actions and standards for 2020:

1. What are my greatest dreams for 2020?  What projects will these dreams require of me? What daily actions must I engage in to fulfill them?

2. What standards will I live by, throughout the next year:

  • Health Standards
  • Family Standards
  • Financial Standards
  • Friendship Standards
  • Personal / Spiritual Standards

3. In what areas of my life do I most want to grow in 2020?

4. What books will I read this next year to achieve those growth goals?

5. What mentors will I seek out to achieve those growth goals?

6. What magazines will I scan and file to achieve those growth goals?

7. What events will I attend to achieve those growth goals?

8. What podcasts will I listen to, to help me grow?

9. What will I do Monday through Friday to be intentional about my growth?

I want to be better in January of 2020 than I was in January 2019. To do this, I have found that the issue is not prioritizing my schedule, but rather scheduling my priorities.  This means I must put into my calendar those things I say are the most important habits and attitudes I can embrace. Our character is simply made up of the habits and attitudes we possess daily.
