5 Quick Steps to Create a 2020 Success Strategy

2020 success strategy

We've all heard the famous saying - 'failure to plan is planning to fail,' and I believe in this wholeheartedly. Haven't you noticed that the majority of your friends with a five-year plan are precisely where they wanted to be at this moment? Planning is essential so that everything you do works towards helping you achieve your aspirations. Here are the 5 easy steps to create your 2020 success strategy.

1. Reflect

Take time to reflect on 2019. What did you achieve this year? What didn't you make time for? What do you need to put in place next year to make things happen? Write it all down. Your new goals will build the foundation for your 2020 success strategy.

2. Use Your Time Wisely

You have a solid six weeks to make some serious moves in 2019 still. Buckle down, tick off some more milestones. Get to work now to align yourself to start 2020 ahead of the game.

3. Vision Boards are Life!

JR and I still create vision boards when we have big ideas. They create a framework to build goals and ideas on, and they help bring visions to reality. Create a vision board for how you want your life to look and feel in 2020.

4. Goal Planning

Write your major goals on a large board. Now break down the actions you need to take there into bite-size chunks. There are your milestones. Now you have a plan of action. Add timeframes to keep on track and hold yourself accountable.

5. Evaluation

Evaluate what held you back this year. It could be anything from a lack of belief in yourself to surrounding yourself with unsupportive, toxic people. Make a mental note to extinguish these behaviors in 2020.
