My 2018 New Year\’s Resolution… Now What?


\"New

I have a whiteboard inside my office. On January 1st, 2018, I worked out a series of new year\’s resolutions that happened to fit four quadrants. 

Earlier today, I was planning on erasing it and replacing with all the exciting new projects I have planned – Feisworld\’s first online course, Feisworld documentary, Feisworld Chinese Podcast… 

Before I erased the board, I had to come clean about where I stand today – April 26th, nearly 4 months after I made myself all the promises. Now What? 

Have you thought about this question like I just did? 

 

 

This is what was on the board VS how well I think I\’m doing: 

Main Focus This Year 

– Be a Good Boss –> A- 
– Stay in the Genius Zone (Do what I do best), focus on impact, not money –> B
– Build an online community –> A (check out altPodcasters)
– First $5K outside of consulting –> Not Yet :p
– Read more –> C 

How I Will Improve 

– Improve self-care, daily! –> A (Woohoo, yeah!)
– Don\’t say yes immediately to new projects –> A (It\’s hard, but worth it) 
– Do not take on more than 4 projects – or max at 20-25 hours per week for consulting work –> A
– Set aside 20 hours / 50% time per week on new growth and opportunities –> A- (Free time is finally there, I haven\’t been as efficient) 
–  Build buffer between meetings (minimum 30 mins) –> B

Habits to Develop 

– Reading Books (30 mins/day) –> D (Hmmm… not doing it) 
– Writing (30 mins/day to 1hr/day) –> B (Doing it… not consistently, I read Helena\’s http://entregurus.com/ every day to keep motivating myself)
– Exercise (30 mins-1hr, 3-4 per week) –> A (since a week ago… before that, pretty bad. I signed up at Lifetime, and I\’m obsessed.) 
– Get away from my computer (once an hr) –> B (need a reminder to get serious about it) 

New Things To Learn / Revisit Old Hobbies

– Practice singing
– Pick up alto sax again
– Online business (online courses, webinar, etc.) 
– Apple store training (draw on my iPad) 
– Tennis
– Dance more (Hip hop, and Zumba counts, too)
