What if 2021 doesn't go as planned?
What if things don’t go back to “normal” in the new year?
What if it all gets even wilder or more unpredictable?
A lot of us are asking questions like that now, especially after the year we just had.
But those are the wrong questions to ask when it’s time to set goals for 2021.
Those “what ifs” fuel anxiety and negative thinking.1 They stall progress and make it hard to set the right goals for yourself.
So, instead of asking questions no one can answer, stop the what-if cycle and shift your focus inward as you set goals for the new year.
As you think about where you are and where you want to be, you can quiet the “what ifs” that come with uncertainty by keeping a few key principles in mind.
That’s what this month’s Visual Insights Newsletter is all about.
When we’re able to move past the worries and discomfort that uncertainty makes us feel, we can focus on the things that really matter, and we can set better goals for ourselves.
We can also give ourselves the power to stay on track and make real progress, no matter what uncertainties we face in 2021 and beyond.
