How to Achieve What Really Matters in 2017

Here are some tips that high achievers use when they begin to reflect and look back on the past year and look forward to achieving their goals in 2017.

  1. Reflect on the past year: John Maxwell says he spends his last week of the year to spend time reviewing his entire past years calendar. He believes that reflection turns experience into the insight.

Tony Robbins is an avid journal user. He journals throughout the year to collect accomplishments and “magic moments.” At the end of the year he reviews all of them. By reflecting on these moments Tony is able to pull some principles and determine what he really want to make happen in the following year.

  1. Don’t dwell on the negative. Put yourself in a positive state ofmmind because we’re talking about making progress and looking forth.

One of the quotes from Tony Robbins:

“You can’t drive into the future using your rear view mirror to guide you.”

Quit hanging out in the past, focus on the future.

  1. Enter a place of gratitude.

As you look back on last year, what are you most grateful for? Your family? Your health? The goals and progress you made last year? Connecting to what you’re most grateful for helps you focus on how important those areas are for you in 2017 and to appreciate the journey.

  1. Cut the fat; remove the excess. Derek Halpern says:

“I try to quit things I love that aren’t delivering the results I want.”

  1. Get clear on your “WHY.”

Jim Rohn says: “Have a big enough reason of WHY to do something and you’ll figure out the how.”

     How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

     6. Schedule your year in advance. What gets scheduled gets done.

Chris Brogan says:

“Your day is your week, is your month, is your year.” You reach your destination and goals in 2017 by taking specific action every day, week and month. Results are the culmination of a few simple disciplines practiced every single day.

Plan your entire year out in advance as much as possible. Even your vacations. It gives you a compelling future that draws you into action.

  1. Make sure you take time to unplug.
