You in 2016: making changes or just monkeying around?
步步高升 / 步步高陞 (Bùbù gāoshēng)
- A steady rise to high places!
(Chinese New Year greeting)
We're 6 weeks into 2016 - how's that New Year resolution coming along? Still hitting the gym, eating healthily and actively looking for your dream job?
If not, you won't be alone so don't worry - today marks another New Year - the year of the monkey - and a chance to take stock and look forward to a year of opportunity.
If you've got off to a flyer, well done - make sure you reward yourself and recognise the success. What positive things have you made happen so far in 2016? What impact have they had on you? What's the next step?
If you haven't quite got off the mark yet, what could you do as a small first step? Slow progress is still progress! Firstly, do you know what your goal is? Is it written down somewhere? Who's going to hold you accountable to it?
In either case, have you ever considered the value of a coach? Someone who will help you explore practical, achievable steps towards your goals; challenge your perceptions; hold you to account; identify your real potential; cut out procrastination and help you onto a path of success and fulfilment. It might just be the impetus you need to make 2016 the year you rise to those high places.
