Historically I have used the month of December to pause and relect on the previous year. I invite you to join along. Carve out a few moments to consider this question. I highly recommend writing your answers down. Maybe read the question at the start of the day and write your thoughts before retiring for the night. Do all or do some. If you are on instagram we can use #remember2018 or go ahead and tag me @ramonawildeman if you want to share your thoughts.
“Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have lived that should be of interest.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
What is one thing you have accomplished? How did it make you feel? Was it easy or was it hard? Did you spend a lot of time thinking about it? Why did you do it?
I set myself a revenue target in the month of July (for my day job) and worked very hard to achieve it. I love the feeling when you are ever so close to meeting a target and you just need to push that tiny bit harder to cross the finish line. I had a sense it was going to be a be a good month – and so to make it even exciting – we raised the stakes. It required extra effort and hustle but the result was worth it. Not necessarily the renumberation but, the achievement and the feeling that I did something. And then I went on my holidays.
I know that I work well to targets. Go ahead and dangle a carrot. It just needs to be the right carrot.
