Make This Year Your Best Year Ever – Design Your Plan To Ensure Success

2011 Plan Your Best Year Ever

Are You Ready To Make This Year Your Best Year Ever?

I will be detailing the 4 steps which are crucial to making this year your best year ever, and ensuring your success in business and in life.  This is Step 2 – Designing Your Plan for This Year.  If you missed Step 1 – Decide and Visualize, please click on “5 Minutes A Day Can Transform You To Have Your Best Ever”.

Building on Step 1 – Decide & Visualize

Have you followed the 5 minutes exercise everyday since you read our post on Step 1?  Ask yourself “is having your best year ever worth 5 minutes per day?” This first step is a very critical step which all successful people do daily.  It is the “foundation” to the new year we are designing.  It’s like we’re building a new house.  If you don’t build a strong concrete foundation, the beautiful walls of the house will fall down.  This is why step 1 is so crucial.

Step 2 – Designing Your Plan

Once you are in the habit of doing step 1 daily, now you are ready for step 2. Each step is building on each other and they are crucial skills which must be mastered. It’s like mathematics.  You must master counting to move on to addition, then you must master addition to move on to multiplication.  If you haven’t mastered addition and you move on to multiplication, you will be confused and overwhelmed, and you probably will not continue on to master algebra.  This is how great success is built, step by step.

Have you ever planned a vacation?  How did it turn out when you planned it? Pretty perfect right?  Imagine a vacation where you just showed up at the airport and you said “I want to go to New York today “.  The airlines may not have an open flight and it would cost you a lot more because you didn’t plan. You want to see a very popular Broadway show and when you arrive, there are no tickets because they are sold out.  If you planned your vacation, you would have gotten the tickets for the show on the day you wanted.  What’s interesting is that most people do plan their vacation and it turns out great!  Therefore, you know that planning works.  Now, do you have the rest of your life planned out?

I remember my mentor asking me this question and I said “ahhh, no…” 🙄 Then he said “Why not?” and I said “cause I didn’t know I was suppose to plan my life” 😯  Duh, Kellie!  Gosh, I felt so foolish and thought, yeah, how come I don’t have my life planned?  Well, from that day forward I started to plan my life and it changed the direction of my life forever.   😛

Please watch Kellie’s video on how to design your plan:

Alright, so now you have your homework for this week.  Take the time to plan your life and your year the way I explained in the video.  Keep on doing the 5 minute exercise every morning, then focus on your plan.  Next week we will take you through Step 3 of this 4 part series on The Steps To Ensure Success This Year.

We would love to hear your comments on our article and how you are feeling doing the 5 minutes every morning.  Also, if you would like to declare your plan here on our blog, we would love for you to share with all of us.

    I love this idea of working backwards from your goals. This is such an easy way to take it step by step and break the big goals down into smaller goals. Plans of where you should be will move everything forward so much faster. Clarify and define.

    You’ve got it all in alignment for sure,
    Val 😉

    Aloha Kellie, I enjoyed your post and your video clip. I have to say I am guilty of not planning out my day to day routines, but I am sure it does require planning to make it more effective. The good thing is I do like to write things down, its going back to it I need to practice it. I do need a reminder from time to time, this is why I luv to read blogs. There are so many valuable tips on them.

    Glad I came by and Thanks for sharing! Lani 🙂

  4. Kellie Hosaka Says:

    Aloha Lani,

    Hi Kellie,

    I second Val’s take above.

    Wonderful post and I agree that working backwards from the goal is the way to go. The reverse process builds confidence.

    Instead of stressing out about how you reach your goal, you know that the goal is yours through the exercise of continual visualization. With this faith it becomes easier to work your way backwards.

    As you note success is a step by step thing. Great empires are built one successful act after another. Rather than project ahead hours, days, weeks or months, keep your mind focused on the present moment because you can only act in the moment anyway.

    Thanks for sharing your insight Kellie.

    I love what you said in the video, “always remember how you felt in December 2011.” ‘Remember’ is something from the past. ‘December 2011’ is in the future. You so seamlessly mix the two that I instantly thought, “Of course, I remember how I felt in December 2011. I watched Kellie’s previous video and did the exercise with her!” It’s that concept of “there is no time” popping up again. Another Kellie quote! Thanks for keeping my mind moving into more of those 11 dimensions you were talking about!

    Visualization is a good way to understand how to reach your goals. While some people pass this off as just wishful thinking, it actually does help you figure out how to attain your goals.

    Once you learn how, just make a plan like you say in your post. Plan exactly how you will do it. Plan the exact steps and learn the skills you need to learn to become successful. Don’t let anything stop you

    Great Post! Keep it up!

    Like the old saying goes: “How do you eat an elephant?…One bite at a time”

    Many of us have big goals that need to be broken down into bite-sized pieces or we run the risk of burnout.

    Thanks Kellie, I keep having to remind myself to do this so you just helped me out tremendously.

    Hi Kellie, I love the idea of the first exercise, and I can see the sense in planning your moves in regards to business.

    Unless you plan properly you can fail miserably when it comes to setting up a business. The analogy of a holiday is a great example.

    And to think all these years I’ve been doing it kapakahi! And no wonder successful people are successful! Start with the end in mind.They do the opposite from unsuccessful people. Thank you Kellie for showing us the right way to plan and breaking it down into more manageable bites. Even a kid could do this. Looking forward to part 3 of this series! Thank you, thank you.:)

  29. Chris McCargar Says:

    Hey Kellie…I ALWAYS Feel BETTER after reading your post!

    Your 2011 Plan has got some EXCELLENT ideas, Kellie. I especially like the way you’ve had us use visualization of our “end result”… where we aspire to be.

    Working backward gives the participant some mileposts from which they can measure their progress. I think that is often the sticking point and one where people give up on because they don’t see progress.

    Your plan addresses where we should be, and if we’re to take it serious…it’ll allow us to correct our course before straying off too far. I hope that many will adopt your plan to change their lives and report back to give us motivation to continue.

    Thanks Kellie,

    I see the value in planning. It is not optional 🙂 Any other way allows for high probability of unmet goals.

    Got it!

    Aloha, Kellie:

    Thanks for bringing me back to this aweiwa? Seems like I skipped it for some years 😉 I do love the concept of staring at the end of the year – then breaking it down into quarters, then months then days. Believe it or not, I’m actually making my very own chart to help me in this process 🙂 It makes sense to me now! Thank you!
