As 2021 ends & 2022 approaches, I thought I’d reflect on my latest trip around the sun.
1) I’ll Never Be 100%
And in this case, I use term “never” loosely.
What I mean is: I will never feel perfectly fine mentally, physically and emotionally all at the same time, every single day — but I shouldn’t let that stop me from being great.
One of my biggest mental hurdles has been my belief that I need to have everything right before I do the work that I know is necessary.
Ultimately, waiting until I’m at my best is just another form of procrastination.
I’ve found way more progress & success by simply touching base each day & being consistent. Even if it’s for a few minutes.
2) Being Passionate Makes it Easier
It’s true. Being passionate about what you do makes things way easier.
Who’d have thunk it?
Meetings, Zoom Calls & Consultations aren’t really my thing. After a few months into the year, I pivoted towards my personal brand over here at leanbuff.com — it’s become my main focus.
Daily writing and creating content are apart of many tasks I do, but it’s much easier working on things I’m knowledgable about versus having to deal with clients;
But to each their own. I guess being a solopreneur is goal of mine.
Speaking of being knowledgable….
3) Don’t Try To Do Everything
I’ve always prided myself on being a jack-of-many-trades. Too bad it never really got me anywhere.
“When you try to do everything, you’ll end up accomplishing nothing”.– A wise man (or woman)
This year, I really honed in on my personal skillset and narrowed down what I wanted my personal brand to be about. It’s in my bio pretty much everywhere.
Narrowing down my skillset gave me clarity & direction. Two things very difficult to have when the mind is all over the place.
For starters, I definitely learned more than 3 lessons this year, but I just couldn’t think of them while writing lol. Maybe I’ll add them as I go or do another post in the future.
My 2022 Goals
I thought about sharing them here, but I’ll keep them personal for now. I do plan on sharing them at each milestone though.
Had a lot to recap but wanted to finish this within an hour. For productivity and whatnot.
May end up updating tis with anything I forgot.
You can find me on pretty much anywhere @leanbuff.
