New year, new goals: Set yourself up for success in 2023

Hello Reader,

Every new year brings with it a sense of possibility, a feeling that anything is possible if we set our minds to it. And one of the most effective ways to take advantage of this sense of possibility is by setting goals for the year ahead.

Setting goals gives us something to work towards, a way to measure our progress, and a source of motivation and inspiration. Without goals, we are like a ship without a rudder, drifting aimlessly through life without any clear sense of direction.

But setting goals is not just about creating a list of things you want to achieve. It's about creating a plan, a roadmap for your life that will guide you towards your desired destination. And the key to creating a successful plan is to make sure your goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. Goals that are SMART.

  • Specific goals are focused and well-defined, and they give you a clear sense of what you want to achieve.
  • Measurable goals allow you to track your progress and see how far you've come.
  • Attainable goals are realistic and achievable.
  • Relevant goals are aligned with your values and priorities.
  • Time-bound goals give you a deadline to work towards, providing a sense of urgency and motivation.

By setting goals that are SMART, you give yourself the best chance of achieving them. And as you work towards your goals, you'll find that you gain a sense of control and direction, a feeling that you are in the driver's seat of your own life.

So as you look ahead to the new year, take some time to think about what you want to achieve. Set some specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound goals, and then create a plan to make them happen. With clear goals and a solid plan in place, you'll be well on your way to creating the life you've always wanted.

I am giving away 22 free coaching sessions, and I am going to tell you more about that further down below, but for the moment I need an interlude to describe how tech is changing the world, by using this message you are reading as an example.

ChatGPT has broken the internet (for good).

OpenAI released ChatGPT to the world for research. On us. They are researching how people interact with a Large Language Model.

โ€‹Here are 100 things it can do.

I'm working on another piece of content to compare and contrast some of these use cases, and showcase others, because I find this technology fascinating, and I'm sure you will, too.

But I want to end this digression to get back to the topic at hand:

The new YOU in 2023.

To celebrate the end of 2022, I am giving 22 free coaching sessions to my community.

This free, no-obligation coaching call is a good match for you if:

  • You want to set some new goals for 2023
  • You need some feedback on a marketing challenge
  • Youโ€™ve worked with me in the past, and youโ€™d like another transformational conversation
  • You are curious about web3, AI, or cryptocurrency, and you'd like someone to show you the basics to get started

This is not a sales call. We will talk about you, your issues, your challenges, and your vision for the future. You will not be able to hire me for future work during this conversation. If you would like to work with me after this free coaching call, we will need to schedule another appointment to talk about it.

These 22 coaching calls are a gift to my community, and a way for me to connect (and reconnect) with people who follow my work. After the application is closed, all 22 slots have been filled, but you can always use these links for working with me in the future:

Hello Reader, Impostor syndrome is a natural consequence of growth. Growth creates a gap, between who you are now, and who you used to be.
