Are you using a 2020 planner to plan for success? Forget what you think you know about New Year’s Resolutions and goals that you often leave untouched, and instead make 2020 your year. The Goals 2019 – 2020 diary can help you get ahead by setting goals and to-dos for every month, following up with them weekly, and planning your appointments by the hour.
2020 just sounds good, doesn’t it? With such a symmetrical and pleasing sounding year, don’t let it go to waste. Make 2020 the year you look back on as the start of something amazing. The turning point for you in your life, your goals, everything.
With that said, if you want to really make the most out of 2020, now is the time to start planning for it. We list four super simple steps you can do to make 2020 your year for success.
1. Use a 2020 planner
The first of the four steps is to use a planner. The best way to get ahead of 2020 now is to plan your year ahead. The Goals 2019 – 2020 Diary will help you claim your success right now. With timed slots for every day so you can create an actionable, timed to-do list, a monthly overview with top goals and to-dos, and plenty of space in the back to stay on top of what you’re doing.
2. Choose your word
Start off by thinking of a word for the year. It’s a simple exercise but can help you root your efforts in a theme. For example, in 2015, I chose the word ‘fearless,’ which helped empower me to meet up with the CGD team (before it really was a team) and get to where I am today. That word powered me through solo trips, uncomfortable conversations, and so much more.
Have you noticed that something is lacking in your 2019? Would you like to be powered up by a theme in 2020 – maybe ambitious, fearless, or confident? All you need to do is repeat that word whenever you find yourself shirking away from the feeling. It helps! Need some help creating a plan for your life? This is how to create a vision board to help you go after the kind of year you actually want.
3. Set an emotional or mental goal
Emotional development is so important. If you want to be successful, you need to continuously improve yourself. So set a goal for yourself that is rooted in emotion. Maybe you want to work on your communication skills, pursue relationships, or learn to deal with stress.
There are so many ways you can improve your mental health. And you can use a 2020 planner like the 2019 – 2020 Goals Diary to achieve that, keep yourself on track, and see how you’re improving in so many ways. All you need to do is set a goal at the start of the month and track your progress towards it. You can use the weekly overviews to theme your time for any goal you set yourself.
4. Get physical
The last of the four steps is exercise. You can always improve, always. So if you feel like 2019 was your fittest year, is there a physical goal you can set yourself for 2020? Running a marathon, for example? Use your 2020 planner to schedule goals like this. It’s not always about the big resolutions. It’s actually more about life-improving goals that you can build into habits.
How about just getting (and staying) in shape if you’re not feeling it? Working out at least once a week and building that up? Start small and build it into your life already. Working out will help you deal with stress, think about things in a different way, and get ahead.
There’s a reason why the most successful women work out, so see it as an investment in yourself that you have to make if you want to get ahead.
Climb that ladder
This is the year where you truly nail your career goals. Always wanted to be a published author? Finish that manuscript and send it off. Want to try your hand at styling?
Thanks to the internet, the world is literally your oyster. You can do anything you want! Start an Instagram account dedicated to your styling work, start writing that manuscript, aim for a promotion, and get it done.
Your career is important, so if you haven’t set yourself some strict career goals, now’s the time to. Follow these four simple steps to make 2020 your year. Think about what you want to achieve – write it down and make it happen.
