Blueprint To Succeed in 2020

2020 came in a rush for many of us. We barely wrapped up 2019 and here we are almost 3 week in. Nevertheless, I am very excited because I have a whole lot of exciting results I want to get this year. Have you set the results for 2020 straight? Are you aware about what your entrepreneurship path, your personal journey should be this year? I know that starting a new year could be very overwhelming for many because of the expectations we have carried on into the new year. Maybe you even have some unfinished work from last year. I am here to tell you that it is all ok. Relax. 2020 is part of the big plan. Here is a Blueprint To Succeed in 2020.

2020 is a continuation of your journey. 

Blueprint To Succeed in 2020I want you to see it this way. Look at your life in larger bits. In a 10 year span. More like planing out a decade of results you want to achieve and then make every single year, month, days, hours, count towards achieving those results. So 2020 doesn’t get to stand alone. Everything you do this year is part of the bigger goal. I want to encourage you to focus on the process. When I talk about the process, I specifically mean the daily activities that you have to carry out to achieve every set result you have identified. 

Get your results figured out!

Which means that you have to identify some results first. If you have not really identified results, it is time to do so. Let the results you want be in line with the vision you have for yourself, your business in the next 10 years. When you find out the results you want, then you now have the foundation to begin to design your activities in 2020 to match those results. For some, results might be called goals or vision for 2020. No matter what you want to call it, at the end of the day, it is the same thing. It is what you want to accomplish. Those achievements you want to look back on and smile because it elevated you higher towards who you want to become. 

Enjoying the process – Blueprint To Succeed in 2020. 

What daily or weekly activities do you need in place this year? It is like creating an action plan for 2020. Oh God, another write up to do. But sincerely, this write up is the only write up you should have by now. Identifying the results you want and creating an action plan is the Blueprint To Succeed in 2020. In my 6 key audio training program, I explain how to create an action plan from scratch. How do you go about developing this action plan? Here is what I did. I created a list of things I want to achieve this year. Make sure they match up with my 10 year journey and then begin to break down these things into smaller parts that I can accomplish within some months. Afterwards, these smaller parts get broken down into bits for each month. I actually integrated a time plan in my action plan so I can hold myself accountable and also evaluate my progress. It is all about progress!

Plan to get the resources you need!

After I had created my action plan for a month, I divided them according to priority within the 4 week I have that month. Blueprint To Succeed in 2020While doing this, I could then see what is a “must do” or what can be shifted to another month. I get to see what resources I might need. This is key this year, because the earlier you know what kind of resource you need, be it finance, network, skill, the earlier you can craft out a way to get them. I know that I want to promote this 6 key program this year, I would definitely grab every opportunity to speak, hold workshops with my target audience. Get what I mean? Actually in the 6 key program, I have a full milestone where you can learn how to map out your resources and match them up to have all you need to get the best results. 

Dedicate time to love the actually activities.

Now that you know what the activities are, it’s time to dedicate more love to them. Find out ways you  can enjoy doing them. If you do not enjoy what you are doing, there is hardly any way this Blueprint To Succeed in 2020 would work. Ways that would make you inspired to actually get those daily activities done on time. I hope I have been able to give you a blueprint on structuring 2020 to accomplish your goals. Thank you so much for staying till the end of this article. Please, please do me a great favor.

I Am Ashamed! Libya Slave Trade.

I am ashamed.  It’s not the Libya trade. It’s not the over 2000 deaths this year in the Mediterranean sea. it’s not the rapes on the Sahara routes. It’s not the exploited workers in the farms or factories. They have been happening over a decade ago, before our eyes. Didn’t we see it? Did we demand political will to end them?
