The first Friday of 2015 is a great time to take a minute and reflect first on what you’ve accomplished in 2014 and then spend some time planning what comes next. Now I’m well aware of the common phrase - “The best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray" - but I don’t think this is a good excuse to not make plans.

Plans help to improve our focus, give us direction, and motivate us to achieve our goals. We don’t know the future and we don’t know how each day will unfold, but that shouldn’t stop us from making plans and setting our sights on success.

Why not use this first Friday to spend some quiet time and make some plans!
