Thursday Thoughts - January 18, 2024

Fail to plan, plan to fail.

I remember the first time I heard this saying – over 20 years ago when I was acquiring my mutual funds sales licence when I worked for a chartered bank.  As much as I appreciate cheesy sayings, I admit, I rolled my eyes at this one.

However, as I have reflected on it over the years, it’s hit me a different way. The reason is pretty simple – it’s true.

It’s the time of year where many of us spend some time reviewing last year, and setting our goals for the new year.  Personal, fitness, business – it doesn’t really matter – it applies to them all.  I’m refining my 2024 goals and where I’d like to end up twelve months from now. 

In short – Personal: read more & get smarter, Fitness: make better choices and trim down a little (yes, this has been on every year’s list since 2005!), Business: double last year’s volume.

And let’s be honest – it applies to where we live too.  All of our homes require maintenance, updating, TLC, and we can be sure there’s an unexpected surprise or two in there somewhere.  I challenge you to make a plan on how to tackle projects to improve your home a little bit each year so that when it’s time to make a change – you’ll be ready. 

Not sure what your plan should look like?

Let’s sit down together and hammer one out together.
