Another year goes by. Some resolutions were met and some weren’t. This is the story of pretty much everybody including you and me.

But should you be disappointed with what you couldn’t achieve in the last year?

Not really!

We had set some big goals for ourselves too. But then life comes in between and we tend to deviate and consequently, some of the goals that we had set for ourselves were missed.

And when that happened, there were 2 things that we could do. Either sit there and brood and worry about what we missed or, just move on and realign our goals.

There was a consequence associated with each of these actions.

The first one would have led us nowhere. We would have further gone down the rabbit hole and gotten lost again and lost a few more goals.

But the second one would have helped us stay on course and ensure that we further grow.

And when it is between losing and winning, you are sure to choose the winning one. We too did that.

A lot of times, how we react to setbacks is what shows how strong we are. And this is also what decides how our future is going to look like.

So when you have larger goals in mind, a destination that you are focused on reaching, then small deviations in your path doesn’t really impact you.

You just consider it as just another deviation, an unforeseen one. Then realign your map and continue with your journey.

So what is it that drives you on the journey?

It is that larger goal that you had set for yourselves. That destination that you have your eyes set on.

And that is why setting clear goals and objectives and writing them down is very important.

I remember Dilip telling me once, “Dreams and goals that are written down on a paper with a date on when you want to achieve it, has a 95% more chance of getting fulfilled than the ones that stay there in your mind”.

Probably, this advice is what made the difference to my goals as well.

Some of the achievements in this year was –

  1. We registered our Company on the 3rd of Jan 2019. Something we had been thinking of for quite some time.
  2. I filed my first return as a Director/Partner of my company, which is a huge achievement for me.
  3. We tripled our subscriber count in comparison to our previous year

Some of the things that we missed this year –

  1. We had set a target of hitting 150 episodes for our podcast in this year but we couldn’t because of missing out on some weeks
  2. We missed our revenue goals by a huge margin
  3. We missed on our social media targets as well

The year is now gone and I have a new year full of prospects staring at me, waiting for me to welcome him.
