The first month of the year is almost over. Even though it may be a little late, I’d like to still share with you my goals for the year. It’s always a good time to set goals at the start of a brand new year for it gives you that refreshing feeling of looking into the future and visualizing the feeling of accomplishment at the end.
1. Level up my fitness by having a more active lifestyle.
Any goal needs to be more specific and measurable, and the easiest to measure is my weight. In 2011, I had a goal to bring my weight down to a more manageable level. As I add more years into my life I find it harder and harder to keep my weight down. Today, I’d like to have a similar goal of having my weight go down to 180 pounds. I feel it’s a goal that’s not going to be easy but if I give my focus to it I know I can do it. 🙂 I hope this will improve my body mass index as well and overall fitness. My plan is to have a more active lifestyle and not stay up too late at night. Wish me luck with that! 🙂 I will also be trying to eat healthy food more. I know this is one department where it’s not going to be easy because I love to eat. 🙂 But I know with a little momentum, anything small can become big and the law of compounding will take care of itself and help me with my goal. 🙂
2) Expand my business team to double the number of business centers earning at least $100 – $1,000.
This is going to be particularly challenging without a strong team behind. I am confident it can be done because I work with business leaders who share the same eagerness to learn and achieve. However, I will be needing more help than I’ve had had in the past 3 years of doing business. Anytime you want to expand by doubling your business growth is always challenging. I need people who value integrity but are open-minded enough to listen and make his own decisions, not influenced by inexperienced people who don’t know anything about building a successful business. I need people who are like me, who can stand up on his own and become a leader when called to serve the many. I need people who are humble enough to swallow their pride and are not afraid to find out what they are truly worth. I am looking for people who are kind enough to understand that anything worth doing needs to be acted upon immediately and not analyzed endlessly, for a successful business is run not only by a thinking mind, but also with skillful hands and a loving heart as well. I need people who can give 111% of his effort and sacrifice for 1 to 3 years of his life in order to have the chance to live a life worth living for the next 10 to 30 years.
3) Go to a place I’ve never been to at least once every quarter.
This is a similar goal I tried doing in 2011. I feel like travelling is one of those activities I enjoy most. I learn a lot just by immersing myself with a different culture, just watching how people do their daily business, meeting with different backgrounds. With what I do today, this is something I really treasure. I used to sit in front of a computer all day long, just minding my own business, never really taking the time to get to know other people. In what I am doing right now, all that has changed. I have been exposed to many different careers, meeting people from all walks of like sharing their inspiring stories on excellence. It’s really a great blessing getting a glimpse on what is it like to be a world champion or a star player in a competitive field like sports. It’s also humbling hearing them share their stories on how much effort they put into their crafts and how much focus and dedication they have to battle through on a daily basis just to succeed in their line of calling. It makes me even hungier to work even harder in building my own business. Another benefit of travelling of course is just realigning with the rhythms of nature. Sometimes, we get carried away with the busy-ness of life that we tend to take all things in a hurry, compromising a lot of things like going straight for days without sleep causing stress and fatigue, only to find yourself on bedrest for days and watching all your efforts go in vain. This is one area I’d like to focus on this year. I feel having a balanced lifestyle of focused work creating fast spurts of growth while having lots of vacation time in between is going to be more productive than a continuous hurried life of unproductive work with lots of stress and fatigue.
Of course, to achieve these 3 goals there will be a lot of mini-goals and targets I will have to hit along the way. I fully expect that this year is going to be a more productive year. I will be stretched and so are the people around me. There will be growth. There will also be fulfillment. It’s not going to be easy, but I know I can make it. With a strong team behind me, I know anything is possible.
P.S. Many readers of this blog have time and time again encouraged me to post more frequently. Unfortunately, with my busy schedule I have not been able to do that. I am more active in social media, particularly Facebook at the moment because it’s a great communication tool for my business. It also allows me to post quick updates more frequently. If you want to get in touch with me and get to know me more, you can add me in my Facebook Personal Page @ http://www.facebook.com/allaninocente. I have 4,247 friends at the moment and I know Facebook has a limit of only being able to accept 5,000 friends. The goods news is, as of this time, I can still accept 753 friends more. 🙂 The bad news is, it may not be long before I cannot accept new friends in my Facebook anymore. For those who would like to receive only business tips, articles and updates from me, you can also like my official business page in Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/allaninocente111.
