Are you:
* An entrepreneur in a flat business
* Chilled from divorce
* Idle in your career
* Burdened by a job loss
* Void of life purpose
* Missing loving relationships
* Afraid that "empty nest" means "empty future"
* In need of executive presence
* Unable to "just move on"

Clients, across the US, are working hard but not smart because there is a lack of clarity, vision, goals, optimized work environment, accountability or good work/life balance in place to produce exceptional results. So fear, bureaucracy, personal agendas and cynicism have grabbed hold when what they want is rekindled passion to create the best product or service in their industry, be the provider of choice and be fulfilled by a lifestyle friendly business.

Every New Year's Eve people set what they think are goals that are never reached. 'I will lose weight,' or 'I will get a new job,' are not goals they are notions. The let-down of not achieving these perceived goals conditions you to set lower reaching goals the next year: 'I will not swear.' 'I will stop drinking coffee.' Then when you can't even stick with these lower-bar goals you stop setting goals all together because what's the point. 

As a CEO I know that notions don't come true. Measurable goals that are grounded in values married with accountability makes things happen. Would you go on a voyage to a place you've never been without a map? Would you take the time to read a map to a place you knew nothing about? Would you be interested at all in maps or travel if you didn't have the time or money to enjoy them? Of course not.

Why Most Resolutions and Goals Fail  

1. They are merely notions.
2. People figure they need to do something new to create change in their lives so they look at what culture defines as "happy" and dream big.  This is like planning to climb Mount Everest in Stilettos.
3. Their goal is to "get" something when if they were grounded in values and open they would already be attracting what fulfills them.
4. There is no plan to get there.  Would you go on a trip without a map, itinerary and resources?

Four Strategies to Rock Your Year
 
1. Spend time uncovering what truly matters to you. When do you feel you are at your best? When do people ask you for help? Who said that climbing Mount Everest is what we all aspire to do anyway?
2. Transform head trash by sitting with your fears and desensitizing. What you run away from runs your life.
3. Optimize your environment. You will go as far as the five people you are closes to. Who do you want to spend more time with? Who will help hold you accountable to your plan?
4. Imagine it is December 31st 2014.  What one thing will you have accomplished to say it was a spectacular year!  What is the first thing you need to do to get there? 
  
Forward this to a friend who just needs a fresh start.
