A YEAR IS JUST 52 WEEKS – Plan the year ahead to be one that really delivers for you (whatever those plans are!)

It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking you’ve got time.

Humans are hardwired with optimism bias. It’s the reason we are so often bad at realistically estimating project timing!

Time is one of our most valuable commodities, we can’t buy any more and we all get the same number of hours to spend each day. So are you spending yours on the important things and not getting sucked into the ‘busy work’?

At the beginning of a year, 52 long weeks stretch out in front of you, clean clear and with no mistakes or messes in it yet 🙂

It looks like a glorious blank canvas on which there will be nothing but good things to come…

but,

once you put 52 weeks into this A3 planner [originally shared by Janine Garner and Kieran Flannigan] it brings the year into pretty sharp focus!

2020 has been about short term plans and being flexible with them, but we’re looking forward to some more long term planning for 2021.

Be bold. Make a plan!

You might have to re-do it but it’s better to have one than not.

What about 2021?

Have you started to think about what you want to achieve?

As Nelson Mandela said:

Vision without action is just a dream, action without vision just passes the time, and vision with action can change the world.

Creating a  plan (and taking action) on the life you want is a good way to start a new year.

For those who’ve worked with me before you would know that I am a big fan of the 52 weeks on one page ‘perspective shifting’ year planner (with credit to Janine Garner and Kieran Flannigan who first introduced me to this concept).

Each year now, we review this plan. We follow the method of looking for an overarching theme for the year and of 52 things to do in a year.

We have found that whether we follow the plan to the letter, or not, it’s a good way to get focus for the year and get ‘real’ about how much time we really have.
