Its the end of January already...Brexit day for those who follow the politics, although Brexit appears to have been overshadowed by Megxit, which must have been a welcome distraction for the Government!
Talking of distractions, I have been unusually focused on setting my intentions for 2020...and despite a number of distractions popping up, I'm pretty much there with both personal and business intentions for the next 12 months.
There seems to be a groundswell of belief that 2020 is going to be THE year - THE year where things happen, changes occur, projects move forward and life takes a turn for the better...how exciting is that!
The biggest challenge for me is keeping the momentum going throughout the year...the rhythm and flow that I personally need to stay on track and which I allow to be interrupted by so many distractions, shiny things and noise!
So how am I going to maintain the momentum, rhythm and flow this year? What is my secret to minimising distractions and shutting my eyes to shiny things? I think part of the solution is setting the right intentions!
Whilst setting my intentions for this year, I realised that one of the reasons I have allowed my attention to wander in the past is because deep down, I haven't been 100% committed for a number of different reasons - some I didn't believe I could achieve and more significantly, some I wasn't that bothered about because they weren't my intentions!
Those I totally believed in and owned did happen - the website was launched, I finished the book manuscript, we supported Daniel to get to the University of his choice, we held another successful conference and rebranded ANLP.
But...those I didn't have total belief in and ownership of, slipped by the wayside - I didn't pay off my mortgage, lose weight, have loads of holidays or buy a place in Italy...
So I think the key for this year is to take 100% ownership of my intentions because if I believe them and commit to them, I will stay focused and keep taking the steps forward.
2020 is going to be THE year!
