preparing to spark and hustle in 2011

The last few days have been filled with phone meetings with “prototype guy” and a lawyer or two, bank appointments, marketing related emails, and a major trip to Costco to finish out the year.  They have not been too terribly exciting – just doing due diligence to get to the fun part in 2011.  Especially, since my boys only have 5 more days of school before WINTER BREAK, I am really working against the clock.

I have been busy setting goals for 2011 – I am hoping to have a rough model of the prototype by February and to have melded the name ideas that I have into one great name by the same time.  Along the way, I have to be refining the business plan with added details and research.

Editor’s Note:  As I think about this – I am thankful for a home office – Right now, I am warm with a beagle in my lap listening to holiday music and working.  This will make writing and research in the dead of winter tolerable.

Do you have goals for 2011?  If so, what are your priorities?  How do you plan to stick to your goals?  What types of checks & balances do you have in place?  Please comment below –

I think that it is easy to set fabulous goals in December for the coming year, but not so easy to make sure that you stay on target.  After all, don’t we all say that next year we are going to lose 5 pounds.

One way that I am making sure that I am going to stay on target is that I am scheduled to “Spark & Hustle” with Tory Johnson in February.  I need to be ready to dive in!

I am looking forward to hearing what goals all of you are working on and your strategies for staying on task.  Then, we can all hold each other accountable!

    Rachel,

    Yes intentions are easy, actions can be tough. I like to create a very short list of key drivers to my success by month for a new year. At the beginning of the new month I hang a piece of paper over my desk with just that month’s goals. It creates focus and accountability.
