I think a lot about making this year better than the last. But lately, something’s hit me. What about making the year better than – the next one, and the one after that, and so on? After all, if all we ever do is base our improvement on what’s already happened, then we’re severely limiting our perspective. This year could be the year that changes your life forever. It could galvanize who you are in a way no other time has or will – in your lifetime. Yet, none of that will happen if your perspective is based solely on improving on what you’ve already accomplished.
- Start Comparing the Present to the Future
“If this was the best year of my life, what would have to happen?” ~ Brian Tracy.Whatever the case may be, even if you decide to step things up by a huge amount, because you’re only using last year as your template for what this year could be, you’ll likely only improve by 5-50%. But if you look beyond what you’ve already accomplished, you’ll be in a much more empowered position to reach your full potential. Last year, for instance, I only wrote eleven articles on self-improvement. If i try to build on that, then I might only try to double that at most this year. But if I drop the model of linear growth, I can force myself to jump into a position that allows me to take a ‘quantum leap’. Under this model, if I consider that I may be 10x as prolific in three years, there’s nothing stopping me from attempting it this year. And even if I don’t reach it, I’ll be better off by the end because I would have attempted to do more than I otherwise would have.
