Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season was enjoyable for your family. I also hope that the past week was profitable for you as a company.
I imagine you hoped those things as well. Did those hopes come to fruition? Did you enjoy your time with your family? Was your week (and year) profitable?
The two are related. When our personal life is healthy, we work more joyfully. When our professional life is profitable, we enjoy our families more.
Knowing these things to be true, the real question for the New Year is, “What are you going to do to achieve the highest joy and the highest career satisfaction?” We offer this encouragement: Plan your days to align with your goals.
Take some time and design what you want your life and work to look like. Then align your life around those goals. Follow the “Streamlining” pattern. Take time each day to:
Reduce – These are planned times when you focus on one singular, important task at a time. You will get so much more done when you reduce distractions.
Reuse – These are planned times when you multi-task on things that you can do at the same time. For example, meet your goals of exercising and listening to podcasts by doing them simultaneously.
Rest – Even if it is for 15 mins, plan moments in your day where you can rest. Remove all distractions, nap, walk, just do whatever it takes to find rest so you can be the best you.
Doing these things will transform your personal life and your practice.
ProSight Success offers two resources to help you accomplish these plans. The first is our book “Streamlining” which, until now, has only been offered as part of the 7 part ProSight Success System. But for the New Year, we are offering “Streamlining” in e-book format for $19.99. Get your copy here.
Additionaly, we have created the “Streamlining” planner which enables you to plan your days with the Reduce, Reuse, Rest pattern. This great planner is fully customizable and is also $19.99. Grab your copy here. Once you order yours, if you email us proof of purchase, we will email you a digital copy of the “Streamlining” book for free.
However you approach the New Year, we hope you find great joy with your family and with your profession.
