Christmas is two days away and it's that time of the year when we tend to reflect on the past 12 months and think about the new year ahead.
I'm currently in Peru, away from my normal day-to-day and off work which gives me the space to think about what I want to achieve and focus on in 2020.
For every new year, I set goals.
To give you some examples, my goal for 2018 was to publish my first book. My goal for 2019 was to find a new home.
I've achieved both of these.
Success, to me, is a matter of goal-setting and planning of how you'll achieve those goals.
But also on being realistic about what you can do and can't do - as you can see, I only set one key goal for the year. Do I want to do a million other things? Of course, but I prefer to stay focused on the one big thing that will make the biggest difference in my life.
I recently watched a 10-minute TED talk which clearly explains why setting the right goals is the secret to success for companies.
It's also about setting the right goals for the right reasons.
But to do this, you must first answer the question why then the what and then the how.
