If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
This quote by Tony Robbins, authors of such books as Awaken the Giant Within : How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical and Financial Destiny!, Unlimited Power : The New Science Of Personal Achievement ,and Notes from a Friend: A Quick and Simple Guide to Taking Control of Your Life ,offers some good food for thought at the start of a new year.
You may want 2010 to be a continuation of the good successes you had in 2009 or you may want it to be much better. How can you make this happen?
When you try to answer that question, you realize the quote doesn't tell the whole story. To figure out how to replicate success (or create success if it didn't happen last year), you need to know where you've were and how you got to where you are. This means you needed a plan. If you were successful and had no plan, your success was random. Unless lightning hits repeatedly, you have nothing to build on. If you had a plan and you weren't successful, that means you have something to review and improve upon - or junk and build a new one!
A good way to start building a plan is to write your goals and review them daily. Once you see your goals, you can devise the strategies you need to get there. You can build in measures for success or failure as well as timelines.
When you see it all on paper, you can more easily see what creative steps you need to take to reach the goals. That's where Tony Robbin's quote really comes to life.
