The New Year’s Resolutions Series shares Nancy’s personal insights and recommendations to support you in achieving your New Year’s Resolutions. All of the recommendations are things that Nancy has found helpful in her own resolution journey over the years OR things she will be trying out this year.
A few years back a client gave me an amazing gift for Christmas…it was both the physical book and the audio book of “The Compound Effect” by Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS magazine. That book changed my life. It taught the power of making small but consistent changes with big, long term effects.
Through “The Compound Effect“, I learned about another Darren Hardy resource, Living Your Best Year Ever. Hardy refers to this resource as an “achievement management system” which can be used to design, execute, stick to and achieve big goals.
I have used this system for the last three years and have found it incredibly helpful. You set three “banner goals” for the year using a sort of distillation process in the beginning of the book which helps you to determine SMART goals for the coming year. You then set monthly and weekly goals that are tied into your banner goals.
We used this resource in last year’s productivity workshop and I highly recommend to anyone who is series about setting and achieving goals this new year (or any time!).
