The Week of Good Deeds

Do you ever go out of your way for someone?  Why not try to include some time in every day for at least one week some time where you will go completely out of your way for another person.  Maybe you could weave into this week a good deed toward a clients or workmates, maybe include your sister or brother, what about maybe a next door neighbour?  And don’t just focus on your best mates either.  Do it with a smile on your face and take special note of the gift that you receive back – the reaction from the other person!

I’m going to try and post each day for one week on a special thing that I have done, or that someone else has done for me and the reactions that are imprinted on my heart.

No time?  Make some time for those important things in your life, in your day!

Planning for the Years Ahead?

I’ve heard from a good many Business Entrepreneurs that December and January (especially January) are their quiet or slow months.  Maybe this is true for you as well.

For me and my business it has been the total opposite.  Things have really taken off in the last couple of months.  I think a big part of this might be that I have been doing a good lot of goal setting and planning for the year/s ahead.

This quote rings true in my life and business right now:

“Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combusion.  You must set yourself on fire.”  ~ Arnold H. Glasow

Maybe you have a quote that really speaks to you that you would like to share with us.

Setting Goals For The New Year

What are the things that are most important to you?

What is already working well in your life?

What is not working so well in your life?

Is there anything you might change to refine those areas in your life that don’t seem to be working as well as they could be?
Where do you hope to be at the end of 2009 and how might you go about achieving this? 

What are your dreams over five years? 

And make a goal for 2009 which might get you a step closer to your long-term dreams.

What were your Main Achievements for 2008?

It is good to think back to what we have achieved over the past year.  This helps us to get to know ourselves better, to work out what is really important in our lives and to set goals for the coming year.
