There Is No Magic Wand…
Over the past week I have received numerous emails from marketing people about getting ready for 2013.
Some said, “Welcome To Your Year.”
Some said, “What’s Your New Year Resolution?”
Some asked if, “2012 was Ok and what am I going to do in 2013?”
One particular entrepreneur suggested for many people 2012 may have been a bit ‘Wonky’.
All of these contacts were intentioned to make me set goals and feel fabulous about 2013, and I should.
So what has this got to do with my first email to you in 2013.
Well, everything really.
Let me explain.
For years I have been a fan of the late Dr Stephen Covey (although he had strong religious undertones in his work) his international best-seller, “7 Habits Of Highly Effective People” written some 22 years ago contains positive messages for all.
For instance his first two habits are:
- Habit #1 – Be Proactive
- Habit #2 – Begin With The End In Mind.
When you analyse these habits it makes sense.
Habit #1 – Be Proactive – It is what I call the ‘Nike’ Habit – JUST DO IT !
Habit #2 – Begin With The End In Mind – Is about having a final end point you wish to reach and then start the journey. After all not many people go to the air-port not knowing where their plane is taking them. Do they?
You see to be successful in 2013 it is a simple as:
- Knowing where you are going and put plans in place to take you there.
The hard part is there is no magic wand to get you there quicker.
But there could be a magic person who can help you along the way.
Dis-cover them, select them and appoint them to help.
It’s the smoothest and least worrying way to achieve what you wish to achieve in 2013.
