2020 is here! Are you ready? Whether you are prepared for it or not, it’s happening right now! 2019 is in the past and reflecting on the past year may be good, but only to quickly figure out what you could do better in 2020. Do not ponder on the bad! Here are 5 ways you can conquer the year 2020 and set yourself up for success in the next decade!
1. Start from Scratch
We all know where we want to end up when we set a specific goal. The problem is we get discouraged when we don’t get immediate results. Take a step back and start from scratch. Define your new goal using the SMART method [Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, Time Bound].
2. Make a List, Check it Twice
Many of us start with a long list of what we want to change at the beginning of the New Year, but as the year goes on, we either forget or fall into the same bad routine we wished to change. Take it from Iron Orr Fitness owner, Justin Orr. Write down your Top 5 Goals EVERYDAY in the morning. Leave a notepad by your bedside and write down your goals in the morning. Make it a morning routine. It’s amazing what will happen if you do this every day!
3. Surround Yourself with Success
You have probably heard this one before, but surround yourself with people that will push you and help you succeed. Why would you opt for the opposite and hang around people that want to see you fail or bring you down? Just like snowboarding, you often go where you look! You are the sum of the 5 closest people in your life. Make sure you’re hanging around 10 out of 10’s!!
4. Don’t Go Too Hard on Yourself
Just like many of us will fail after not seeing immediate results, a lot of us will not complete our new goal because we went too hard on ourselves. There will be days when you want to quit. There will be days when outside influences cause you to fail. It is ok! I pay homage to one of my favorite quotes of all time:
“Why do we fall Sir? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.”- Alfred, Batman
5. Treat Yourself!
Be careful not to do this too much as it could become a habit, but treat yourself to something nice after you succeed. This could be completing one of your goals or crushing a big presentation at work. You need to feed yourself gratification after you do something good. It is already hard enough to make a goal and stay with it all the way through. Pick and choose when to treat yourself. Just make sure you treat yourself wisely.
