As we close out 2013 and get ready for a fresh fun New Year, I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for being part of the ClickNewz community!
I truly enjoy my work, but without people -without YOU- it would all be pointless.
I've had the opportunity to meet (and get to know!) so many great people online via email, my blog & forum, Facebook, and other places around the web.
Some I've even had a chance to work with more personally, which I really enjoy. I've been doing quite a bit of year-end one-on-one brainstorming with my $99 special. That's been a lot of fun!
Speaking of, I've also been busy with year-end reflecting & brainstorming in my own business, which I imagine you've been doing on your end as well...
The end of the year always feels a bit overwhelming and "rushed" to me. It doesn't help that the last month or so of the year is jam-packed with holidays and social obligations, on top of New Year planning- lol. I'm sure you can relate.
Just like you, I always have more ideas than time, and the same 24 hours to work with in a day. This means we have to get serious about determining our highest priorities. It also means we have to be very disciplined with our time, focusing on those things that consistently take us closer to our true goals.
This morning I sat down and spent a couple of hours organizing all of my notes and tasks in Evernote. This is where I do all of my brainstorming, keep all of my running task lists, and even where I brainstorm and create products. It's the perfect all-in-one solution as it's synced across every computer and device you own, making it easy to manage and access - and of course it's always "backed up".
My highest priority right now is laying out my timelines and getting a structured schedule in place for the New Year. I have big plans for 2014 and a lot of FUN projects in the works! In my next post I'll share some of the details with you, including two new products I'm releasing in January that I think you'll be as excited about as I am.
2013 was an interesting year for me. It was a mix of hard times, fun times and big changes. I had major surgery, turned 40, got up on a water ski again, made some positive changes to my friend circle and peer network, launched a fun product that was a big hit, taught my favorite topic live at the Braintrust event in Vegas, and initiated some subtle but powerful shifts in my business.
As the year comes to an end, I find myself feeling particularly happy as I reflect back over it all. It makes me smile. I pulled through some pretty tough times, and also made a lot of fun new memories over the last year!
I would love to hear from you. What are your business goals for the New Year? I'd specifically like to hear what you do, what you'd love to learn more about or what you need the most help with - as well what you'd most like to achieve online in 2014.
I may not be able to reply to every comment, but I AM going to read each and every one. And for those of you that emailed in your replies over the last couple of weeks, I am still making my way through those. Thank you!!
Personally, I'm really excited about the year ahead. I'm planning to start two new podcasts, create more fun how-to videos on YouTube, release new hands-on training programs, offer tons more free content & informative webinars, etc. All of which will benefit you, of course. The more comments this post sees, the more I can tailor my topics and free content to bring you what you want and need most...
