What will it take for me to drive success in 2023?

Spending some time very early this morning reflecting on the past year and thinking about the year ahead, a year that may have us facing new, unprecedented challenges, I found myself being self-analyzing and very self-critical. My mind was racing about possibilities but quickly turned to what it would take to turn possibilities to opportunities to success.

Many that know me know that I’m a very creative, innovative person. But I know all too well that ideas are worthless without taking action. I need to put those ideas into action. It’s who I’ve been. And it’s who I need to be once again, now more than ever.

I asked myself the following simple question that I believe sums up the foundation of my action plan for the new year:

If I were to do all that I believe is necessary to be done to achieve success in 2023, would it be possible to fail?

Living by a great Tony Robbins quote will be an important motivating factor…

“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.”

However, due to prevailing challenges and an evolving business environment, I also realize it’ll take extreme focus – something that had never been an issue before. I realize I must commit to this without fail – a personal commitment that I know is essential to drive my efforts to a new level, to new heights embracing the changes (personal and business) necessary to do so, staying focused, and this is paramount… on the most important tasks!

It will also mean diligently following through (and following up) each step of the way, and not resting on my laurels and past success. After all, as Babe Ruth once said,

“Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.”

Have a great day. Make it happen. Make it count!
