Happy New Year Tigers!
How are you feeling? It’s been cold cold cold in the studio. My little electric heater is struggling to keep me warm…but I do appreciate it’s effort lol.
Have you been hearing or seeing this phrase all over the place?
‘’New Year, New YOU’
I can tell you …I bloody hate it. It grinds my gears.
Yes it’s a new year…New month… two new digits to represent the new year
…..but I’m the same me. Don’t you feel like you are the same you? Whats so wrong with that?
Why must we think of ourselves as having to turn into this whole new person as soon a January rolls around in order to have the next 12 months of our dreams?
I refuse to accept this myth. Many moons ago I made the decision to quit setting resolutions. It was a complete waste of time as I never stuck to any of them. Instead I decided I would make new stronger intentions.
New Years Intentions.
Feels as great as it sounds to read Tiger.
This practice is far more cleansing. As my sole intention( each day) is to feel awesome, follow my bliss + feel more freedom in my life. Worrying about staying consistent with those kinda thoughts is really not a worry I have to worry about.
Just before Christmas I shared on our Instagram stories…
…one of two of my major goals for 2017. Which is to take The Urban Tiger to wholesale within 3 months. This means preparing the company to be ready to seek out stockists to carry our goodies. Typing this is making me supa excited dude …because I call this goal…my Freedom Goal.
Proudly I can inform you that I am currently slaying !! Ticking shit off my planner every couple of days. Getting closer and closer to my freedom goal peeps!!
All down too using this pretty awesome strategy…
…Reverse Engineering. Simply put, you start with the end goal in mind. Then work out the process in reverse to reach that goal. Thinking backwards helps keep you focused and narrow down the fastest way to achieve the end result. This way you are more acutely aware of the ACTUAL tasks…not the creative ones…the hard difficult not so fun tasks required.
I had heard of the technique in the past but never really understood how to apply it until I listened to a podcast episode from my girl Tara Gentile talk about this and break it down smoothly 🙂 Tara is a kick ass business strategist. My go to guru.
I know how pumped the New Year can make you feel….
Making fresh goals is so easy. I also know that with the best intentions, staying accountable on those can be a real struggle. As using the reverse strategy is helping me so much so, I wanted to share it with you. No matter what it is you desire to slay… starting a new business, launching a product, getting a promotion , buying your first home, handing in coursework on time, achieving that certificate or planning that much needed holiday you have been dreaming about. Anything. …anything that with will bring you freedom, ease, joy + happiness in 2017…reverse engineering will help you to simplify the steps and get YOU to your Freedom Goal faster.
LISTEN TO HOW TO APPLY THIS STRATEGY TO YOUR 2017 GOALS!!
Like I said Tara applies this method within a business context. However, listen carefully, the strategy is applicable to any personal goal.
