The New Financial Year is almost here…let’s talk fresh starts and clean slates.

The New Financial Year is almost here…let’s talk fresh starts and clean slates.

I’m a big fan of fresh starts and I LOVE a clean slate. I give myself three of these precious days every year. New Years Day. My Birthday. And the start of the new Financial Year. In November I’m already planning my success for the following year; setting goals, creating vision boards, creating lists and essentially clearing the decks so I can hit the ground running when the calendar clicks over to the New Year. By December I’m chaffing at the bit and come January I’m off and racing. February is easy but when my birthday is looming (March 28th) it’s time for me to evaluate where I’m at in my Master Plan. By the time my birthday comes around I’m pumped again, I’ve evaluated where I’m at, I’ve made some adjustments, I’ve re-set some goals, I’ve shed some goals, I’ve amended some timelines and once again I’m off and racing. Three months later we hit the end of one Financial Year and the start of another. This is where things become exciting. If I’m on track for my financial and business goals for the calendar year I up the ante for the new Financial Year setting an even bigger goal than I thought possible at the start of the year. This usually eclipses the calendar year goal and makes that goal appear a walk in the park. If I’m not on track I tell myself all is not lost and that instead of focusing on the calendar year I’ll focus on the financial year. This takes the pressure off, makes me feel less of a loser and once...
