Have You Created Your Own Top 10 List?

YOU-edited

As the year comes to a close, there are stories all over the media with year-end “Top 10” lists.

There seems to be a list for everything these days. They range from biggest tech mergers, best business books, worst reality shows, cutest baby names and more. As the media focuses on these lists, it’s important that each of us takes a few minutes to compile our own “Top 10” achievements.

Grab some paper and pen and write down your key accomplishments and successes during the past 12 months. I like to separate mine into professional and personal milestones.

Professional lists may include hiring a new virtual assistant (who is really getting the job done!), launching weekly email newsletters, meeting with former clients quarterly, winning an award or attaining a long-overdue certification.

Your personal list of achievements may cover renewing your wedding vows, moving to a bigger home, joining a photography club, or paying cash for a new car.

Many of us hide from taking center-stage in our own lives. We need to acknowledge and celebrate our milestones, even months after they have occurred. Human beings tend to recognize other people’s successes and quickly forget their own. Recalling—and writing down—our hard work and victories gives us momentum and energy to move forward. Now is the time to take credit instead of downplaying your efforts.

Don’t shy away from the spotlight; make your list. Give yourself credit for the projects you’ve worked on, the people you have helped and the good that you have done.

Then make your “Top 10” goals list for 2015. Build on the momentum of your 2014 triumphs.

Author Bob Proctor said: “All of the great achievers of the past have been visionary figures; they were men and women who projected into the future. They thought of what could be, rather than what already was, and then they moved themselves into action to bring these things into fruition.”

This is a valuable—and rewarding—exercise, that’s become an important tradition in my life. It’s time to begin.

Wishing you much success in 2015!
