Five of the best tips for making this a year of achievements

A new year is the time to discard your old habits and establish new ones.

It’s amazing what you can achieve if you believe you can do it.

Never allow past experiences to prevent you achieving great things in the future.

1. Clean up your mess, start afresh


Arrive back at your workplace fresh, full of new ideas.

Get yourself organised. Clean up your clutter from the past. Dispose of things you don’t need.

Clean up your computer files, replace your keyboard if necessary and make a fresh start.

2. Make plans

What things are you planning to do this year? (Write them down and keep them in an obvious place where you can refer to them often.)

Aim high – aim for self-improvement.

Sometimes the greatest achievements come from the biggest challenges.

If a challenge seems overwhelming, break it down into achievable parts. Set your deadlines and attempt one task at a time. Reward yourself when you reach each goal.

“People who begin many things finish few.”

3. Set your priorities

Take control of your time. Decide what things are really important and ration your time accordingly.
Life is too short to waste time on trivia.

“You can achieve great things if you aren’t too busy doing little things.”

Don’t become a slave to others. Set your own priorities and learn to decline tasks when people ask you to do too many things.

4. Learn new skills

The business world is dynamic. Resolve to keep up with new developments in the workplace or you will be left behind.

Aim to improve all your communication skills. If you are a skilled communicator you are more likely to get your ideas accepted.

Qualifications and new skills are easy to carry around and could lead to new opportunities.

5. Become an achiever

People judge others by what they have achieved.

Earn a reputation for meeting deadlines and getting jobs done well. They may doubt what you say but not what you have done.

You can achieve anything you want – if you help enough people get what they want.

Always try to treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself.
