What is a Successful Year, Really?

If you get up in the morning and get to bed at night, and in-between do what you want to do then you are a success.

True wealth and success is the freedom to give your time and energy to the things of life which matter.

My hope for you this year, dear friend, is that it would be a successful one.

May you get out of bed on January 1 and get to bed on December 31, and in-between do what you want to do.

What is at Stake for 2024?

While there is still much uncertainty going into this new year, one thing is for sure: don't let 2024 happen TO you. Instead, get clear on what is most important to you and do what you can to move forward.

If you had a challenging past year, the best thing you can do is take ownership to move on.

If you’ve had a good year, then you should keep building on it. If you are simply coasting then it means you are either going downhill or you are using up the last of your previous momentum.

However, clarity on your goals can be tricky...

The Problem With Resolutions

That clever list of New Year’s Resolutions is worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. Resolutions, in and of themselves, won’t get you very far.

The problem with resolutions is that they often serve as a False First Step. By writing down your list of resolutions, it can feel as if you’ve completed them as well. Because the “hunger” for change so often gets appeased merely through creating the list of resolutions, many people stop there.

It is better to have one goal that you take action on than it is to have a dozen resolutions that you ignore after a few days.

And so, yes, it’s important to have your list of goals and resolutions for the year. But, dear reader, that is only the beginning.

How I’ve Planned My Year, Every Year

Hello. My name is Shawn and I am honored at the opportunity to help you plan your year.

Every January my wife and I take an evening or two and we map out our upcoming year.

We usually pour some wine and begin by listing out our upcoming year’s important events, milestones, and any goals we have or other things we want to do.

We will then go through that list and decide when we think those things should happen and what we’re going to do to help make them a reality.

We’ve been doing this for over a decade, and it always proves to be a highlight. It has a positive impact and helps us ensure that we will have a successful year for ourselves and also for our family.

Plus! It's a lot of fun. The process facilitates great conversation and helps us get on the same page about our upcoming year.

I have put together the Plan Your Year workbook so you can create joy, clarity, and memories as well. Plan Your Year is a simple and fun approach to something that most folks usually dread or avoid. The popular workbook (and accompanying videos) will walk you through the exact same year-planning process that my wife, Anna, and I go through every year.

Thousands of folks have been through the Plan Your Year workbook over the years since we first began offering it in 2018. And I’d love for you to be able to go through this very same process!

(And you don’t have to be married or have a family — this is something that works for anyone and everyone.)

As we went through the workbook together, I loved hearing from my husband’s point of view. This was a chance for us to get clarity about the upcoming year.

Also, thanks to the workbook, I felt free to let go of certain ideas and expectations. I will definitely be doing this again next year.

Plan Your Year helped me tremendously in getting me to clarify what I wanted out of the upcoming year. In the past I’ve always tried to do everything and that usually leads to me doing nothing, so I’m glad to have gone through the steps of getting clarity.

What an Unfocused Year Looks Like

How to spot someone who is focused versus someone who is not.

Something I teach about in my flagship product, The Focus Course, is that when you’re over toward the left on the “un-focused” side of things, you don't feel in control. It's stressful. You don't feel like there is any breathing room. And you're so frequently responding to the urgent issues of others that you lack any clear plan forward.

However, when you are on the “focused” side, you are very much in control. You have clear goals and you have the time and energy you need to meet those goals. You are far less stressed and anxious than your reactive counterpart. You're thriving.

Consider how liberating it will this year to have clarity about your goals along with the breathing room you need to focus on them.

I LOVED the conversation the workbook facilitated! The question prompts were very helpful as my husband and I brainstormed our projects and goals.

We really loved this workbook. I'm thinking about filling out another set of worksheets to specifically focus on work so I can break down all of my business goals and projects next year.

Nicole R.

With the new year approaching, I wanted to think about my priorities for the year. I like the way everything is divided into simple steps, and the outcome of several steps is brought together in later sections. This is a very effective way of working.
