The Power of 10

As we begin a new decade, I’ll be focusing on the power of 10 in my columns over the next few months. Let’s start the new year focusing on 10 things you want to accomplish this year. Make a list of 10 goals. Some of them may be personal goals and others may be related to your career. Be sure your goals have a timeline and are measurable. If it’s a big goal, break it down into manageable chunks. Otherwise, the goal will be so intimidating you won’t know where to begin. That’s when procrastination starts and you don’t want to go down that road, because procrastination can be very painful.
Picture yourself 10 years from now. Where do you want to be? What do you want to be doing? What steps do you need to take to get there? You need a road map, a plan that will help provide purpose and direction. It will help you stay focused and give you a vision for your future. We all need a plan and now is the perfect time of the year to put that plan into action.
I hope 2010 is your best year ever!
