What are you going to do this year?
We have covered procrastination and laziness. In reality, what is your plan? Are there things you genuinely want to do? Are there things that you are brave enough to try as your next goal? Rather than a resolution, set goals for yourself a make a plan.
Better to work toward something other than trying a life altering experience.
One can go and jump out of an airplane, but it is better to plan for it and learn how to skydive. This would be the kind of plan I would be putting forth. Baby steps to eventually diving out of a plane. Even if you decided this moment to do it, you probably would need to drive to a faraway place and they would instruct/teach you how to do it.
Let’s do that in real life.
Jumping out of a plane seems like a cool idea. However, in the end, you will need to prepare. Buying a house is a long-term plan as well. Opening a business and everything that you do needs a plan.
The sooner you begin the better.
This is the goal of my TikTok in general. People and businesses in general forget to make plans for business and social media. This lack of planning seems to be the main problem. I often wonder if this lack of planning often trickles down to relationship and family matters. A lack of planning and decision-making can affect the family or a couple in many ways.
Why all the planning?
Without an outline, nothing will get done. A boss cannot tell the employees every minute what to do. However, a general outline and plan will give people a direction. This is where I help people here in Bali.
Even if a plan never gets made. Even if a plan is never executed… There is at least a talk about one and the importance of one. Eventually, individuals will roll over to some sort of a game plan. This is where I tend to lend a hand and give advice. At least, they always know I am here. So I guess my goal for 2023 would be to involve more people in a plan and get them used to thinking about long-term projects and not from hand-to-mouth. Short-sightedness and kneejerk reactions often do not do well in business or life planning.
