“My 2015 plan is pretty much done and I’m ready to start fresh. Can we just work on a new plan for 2016?”
My coaching client had unknowingly uttered a common end-of-year refrain. It’s the number one mistake that people make even before they begin goalsetting for the year.

In our aim to achieve our Best Year Yet®, a close knit circle of supporters and allies can be critical. This may take the form of family members, friends, and coaches. I propose the simile of storks preparing for long-distance travel. As they leave the ground, they fly wingtip to wingtip, watching one another, for the one that hits the thermal: the one that lifts the entire flock to higher air and saves energy for the long voyage.

Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS ).
Our subconscious minds are equipped with a self-limiting rear view mirror, through which we continuously relive and recreate our past. We mistakenly believe that who we were is who we are, thus limiting our true potential in the present, based on the limitations of our past.

My partner has a saying that helps me keep myself from getting caught up in the stress, drama and weighty-ness of work situations – “We’re not saving lives here.” It’s a great reminder that I don’t need to put too much stress on myself over the little things. Since I have stepped into my role at Best Year Yet®, I have a different perspective on that saying.
