26 Dec 2017 Goals: The Year To Grow…
A few years ago I had a friend ask me; “Why have goals?”
I nearly gagged.
Why on earth wouldn’t you have goals?
That’s what keeps us getting out of bed every morning. That’s what keeps us moving forward and achieving things. That’s what keeps a smile on your face and boredom away…
So yes you must have goals. You must make goals and you must work towards them.
2016 is about to end and a brand spanking new 2017 is about to be upon us…
I’ll be bringing in the new year from Tasmania this year… but not from just anywhere, hopefully we’ll be up at the top of the highest mountain in Tasmania; Mount Ossa! (See above).
So 2016 was a huge learning year for me. (Check out my 2016 year in review here).
I learned so much, mostly about myself but also many different techniques and strategies to.
But for this brand new year I as usual have some big goals.
Although this year I am approaching things in a bit of a different way this year…
I’m no longer going to force myself to chase goals or things that I’m not passionate about.
I did that with a few projects in 2016 and whilst I may not have enjoyed every thing about them, they were all great learning experiences.
So I’m trying to work on only things I love, am passionate about and know will grow me and my businesses.
So below I’ve listed my goals for 2017.
I’ve listed my major goals first which are really the only important ones that I want to achieve.
Within each of these big goals I’ll list the mini goals that I need to achieve to make the bigger goals a reality!
So by doing it this way, you will also get an insight into how I plan to achieve these goals so that maybe you can copy the same strategies I use.

So that’s my overall goals for 2017.
You can see that in some areas they are a little ambitious but I think that is the only way to make goals really.
Last year I had big goals but not a real distinct plan on how to make them a reality…
Whereas for 2017 I have plans, I have systems in place and I am more determined than ever!
Even if I fall shot of these goals, the biggest thing I will be proud of is THE PERSON I BECOME IN THE PROCESS.
This is super important.
I want to be the ultimate version of me.
My ultimate self.
That’s what I tell myself everyday.
