Just Pick 3

Fast away the old year passes, as the song goes.

It’s that introspective time when we all review the victories and defeats of the last twelve months and come up with a list of resolutions.

How long was your list last year?
How many of those goals did you attain?
Did you come out of the gate in January with a bang, and light a fire under 10 or more action plans, or did you attack your list in a prioritized sequence?
How did that work out for you?

In any year where I made a lengthy list, I ended up frustrated before February rolled around, and never looked at my list again. I just couldn’t achieve the progress I envisioned.

This year, I am going to do something different, and I think you should too.

By January 1, I will pick 3 areas to focus on in my work and personal resolutions. When I have achieved the desired results there I will pick 3 more.

The best way to do this is to pick 3 goals phrased as metrics you can measure.

Start your list. What do you want to change? How will you measure it?

Decide what is  most important.

Then, just pick 3.
