Then I thought back to what my life was like when I was his age, and all that has occurred since then. And I started getting excited about the next 25 years I’ll live.
Let’s apply that to your business.
If you knew a year ago, what you know now, would you have done the same things you have done in the past 350+ days?
That’s not a yes or no question.
What are the best parts of this year?
What were the worst parts?
What did you learn?
What don’t you understand?
What do you not want to do anymore?
What do you want to do more of?
Let’s go even deeper to make things even better, but first write down your answers. Put the paper down and pick it up again a couple times before next Tuesday, when we finish this exercise.
Oh, and a couple more rules. Don’t erase anything, or black it out. If you want to change something or use a different word, just cross out with a single line and continue.
Enjoy Christmas and I’ll have part 2 on December 30th.
