With a new year comes new plans for your goals in the days and months ahead. Whether you’ve had an excellent 2015 — or perhaps one that just was OK — the chance to ‘begin again’ will find many very excited when the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, 2016.
Yet, it also true thinking of your goals for the year ahead may be easy — but seeing them realised can be harder. There is because there is a challenge even with the best of ideas and dreams of turning them into reality. This challenge exists because while the ideas come to mind in an instant, the planning of them can take longer. As the famous philosopher Henry David Thoreau said, ‘Dreams are castles in the sky — all you need to build foundations under them.’
What does this mean in practice? It means building your life and dreams is a matter of daily and consistent planning and commitment that shall see you succeed in your goals — and then go well beyond them! Many people can achieve their dreams but give up at this stage; you’ll keep going — and crucially: go on to keep succeeding — if you can establish a good method at the start to takes your dreams and put them into daily practice.
Daily practice. Daily. Practice. Whether together or separate these are hardly going to be the sexiest words ever written. Yet, it is a reality that even those who are undoubtedly born with some innate talent have spent days, months and years honing their talent and doing so by sticking to a plan.
The Beatles surely had great songwriters in John Lennon and Paul McCartney — but they also spent months playing hours upon hours a day in the German clubs of Hamburg — and this took a talented but relatively unknown British band and turned them into one of the greatest live acts in Europe. It is great to have talent, but it is best to have talent and to work on growing it. This same talent has been seen across the best of all fields, from Michael Jordan in Basketball to David Beckham in football to Lewis Hamilton in Formula One and in an array of people in business, the arts and beyond.
Yet, as opposed to thinking your New Years Resolution need be a huge, hard and giant task — instead the idea of daily practice means it is really a very simple thing after all. All you need do is focus one day at a time on building just a little more the foundations which shall rise to meet your dreams. You have the idea, you have the dream and you have the plan to get there. Now all you need is just a little help in the day-by-day to sort out the parts of your goal that are small — but just like the hands of a clock — are important to ensuring you progress your goals with time each day.
