Phew I canot believe its almost a month since we rang in a new year! And we are only now doing our first post. Shocking. But to my defence- Ive been on school holiday. Okay and probably a whole lot disorganised- having two munchkins throw out my day so completely and have my day organised around them has totally thrown me out of balance.
I’m in of the process of reading Steven Covey’s “7 Habits of highly effective People” plus a whole lot inspirationals from Brian Tracy and Brendan Burchard on getting the most out of life and your day , titles such as “ what successful people know/ habits/ tricks “. So many good tips. And yet here we are at the end of Jan 2015- the starter gun for 2015 has already looong gone off and Im still standing at the start line in the smoke and dust of those that have already kick-started their 2015. And yet I am intensely excited about what has lead us to where we now and where we going.
Remember Aesop's Fable about the hare and the tortoise? Slow and steady wins the race. And so my 2015 is more tortoise than hare.
And so what is 2015 looking like for us? No resolutions here. I've never really been a believer. What I am a believer in is habit and what I'm increasingly learning is that study is hugely important- to keep improving on what we know- no one will ever be to old to learn and to learn new habits and new skills. That's where attitude comes in. To keep moving forward - even setbacks move us forward.But the importance is to keep moving forward. To build a consistency of moving forward. To build a consistency of learning and improving.
Excellence, learning and creating good habits from these IS compounding interest in your own life and business.
To begin with we’ve started the year getting physically organised-or rather picking up and improving on existing habits of being organised and improving on them.
Its not the annual overhaul of your home/ workplace or garage, its a consistent habit. It is the overhaul/ springclean but its also not in that you cannot be organised in and amongst a heap of hot mess.
So with that note; here’s to learning and always moving forward wherever and however that personally means to you.
Happy( one month in) 2015!
