As an experienced web designer with over two decades in the field, I’ve learned a thing or two about the importance of clarity, both in business and in personal life. One of my favorite sayings, “Action speaks louder than words,” has been a guiding principle in my journey, and I’m here to inspire you to chase your dreams with unwavering determination. Remember, trust but verify.
Now, let’s reflect on the past and those dreams we’ve longed for, the ones we wish we had pursued but left hanging in the air. Often, life’s unexpected twists and turns can leave us feeling a sense of inner guilt, as some of our most cherished desires remain unfulfilled while unforeseen circumstances rear their heads.
But this year, let’s rewrite the script. Let’s shift our perspective on wants and needs and create the most exceptional year of our lives!
To start, I’m casting aside the traditional list of New Year’s resolutions – you know, that well-intentioned list we occasionally create and stick to the fridge, only to forget about as the year progresses. Instead, I’m embracing a New Year’s Mission Board. This mission board will feature goals with clear timeframes, action steps, and deadlines. It’s about allowing yourself to dream so big that some missions may extend, overlap, or perhaps not come to fruition. Because when you dream big, exceptionally big – even if just a mere 20% becomes a reality, it’s an incredible achievement.
In a nutshell:
Create your New Year’s Mission – be bold, be brave, take risks!
Ditch the guilt, and go after your dreams!
Start by crafting goals, categorizing them into attainable ones, but always include a few “crazy goals.” Crazy goals are the ones that you may have no idea how or when to achieve, and you may even wonder if they are possible. But here’s the magic: by beginning with these audacious dreams, you’ll find your path, define your desires, and carve out more achievable, structured goals – setting you on the path to success.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla said “If something is important enough you should try, even if the probable outcome is failure”.
Here are my top five bold New Year’s Missions as a web designer. Yes, decided to combine mission with goals as each point also serves as a reminder of what I want more of in my life.
Web Designer’s Top 5 Bold New Year’s Missions:
New Year’s Mission 1: Inspire People to Chase Their Dreams!
It’s time to act on those business ideas you’ve been mulling over, learn the skills that you believe might be holding you back, or embark on that globe-trotting adventure. I find immense joy in helping entrepreneurs kickstart their businesses because it’s about seeing dreams take shape, working tirelessly for them (let’s be honest, it’s a herculean effort when you’re the CEO, assistant, sales department, and cleaning crew all in one), and ultimately achieving success.
New Year’s Mission 2: Grow My Brand + Web Design Business Bigger and More Predictable.
This year, my vision is to not only grow my brand and web design business but to revolutionize it. I’m dedicated to creating a service that’s not just bigger, but also more innovative, intuitive, and indispensable to entrepreneurs worldwide. I envision a future where my business becomes the go-to source for creative design and strategic branding, helping businesses stand out in today’s competitive market. If you’re on the verge of creating something great and need a partner to bring your vision to life, I’m here for you. Together, we can create something truly extraordinary.
New Year’s Mission 3: Write a Book.
The story that resides in my heart and sprawls across various scattered papers in my home is a mission I intend to complete.
New Year’s Mission 4: Travel.
Traveling is more than visiting new places; it’s about discovering new perspectives, immersing in different cultures, and finding inspiration in the beauty of the world. This year, I’m not just planning trips; I’m embarking on adventures that will challenge me, change me, and charge me with renewed creativity and passion. Whether it’s exploring ancient cities, hiking through untouched wilderness, or simply soaking in the art and culture of a new city, each journey will be a step towards personal and professional growth.
New Year’s Mission 5: Embrace Every Failure.
Perhaps the most audacious mission of all, this year, I am committed to embracing every failure as a lesson in disguise. I understand that the path to success is paved with setbacks, and each one is an opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve. This mission is about cultivating resilience, fostering a growth mindset, and turning challenges into opportunities. By confronting failures head-on, I aim to build a foundation stronger than any success could provide, preparing me for greater achievements ahead.
Now, it’s your time to shine. Reflect on these expanded missions and think about your own. What bold, exciting, and transformative goals will you set for yourself this year? How will you turn your dreams into missions that propel you forward? Share your New Year’s Missions and let’s make this year unforgettable, together.
By setting these ambitious goals and daring to dream bigger, we can all step into a year filled with potential, growth, and success. Remember, it’s not just about setting missions; it’s about taking action, embracing the journey, and celebrating every step forward. Let’s make this year truly remarkable!
