TIP #1: REALITY CHECK

Have you heard of SWOT-analysis? In short, SWOT-analysis is used in business to gather the whole picture and plan strategically.

I was working on it for some company when this idea crossed my mind: 

Hold on, if big corporations use it to get clarify on their reality and direction, why cannot individuals?”

Here you go. I’ve created a personalized SWOT-analysis (P-SWOT) for your own reality.

It will help you look inside and extract the right information to analyze it later (TIP #2, you’ll receive it tomorrow), exactly as it has done for me.

P-SWOT

Read on and reflect. 

Want to see my own P-SWOT-analysis*?

(*) – My actual P-SWOT is much more detailed. Below I’ll share just a gist of it to help you build yours:

TIANA’S P-SWOT

So, what do you think? Let me take a guess…

“Cool stuff, but not sure if will work for me?” 

Am I right? And you’re right too. 😃 

This will only work for you if you will work on it. 

Logical, huh? 

One way to do that is to write your answers down because:

— Writing activates the sub-conscious brain —

By writing down my ideas I set the brain’s reticular activating system to work, seeking a solution. 
Pss, this is the part of our brain that sends two types of signals: one that goes to the “urgent” brain, and the second to the sub-conscious.
So, the process of writing it down puts my sub-conscious in motion; it started observing my thoughts more closely and “dig deeper” into the topics I was trying to discover.

Practically, something like this would happen:

I would be working on some task at work when a solution crossed my mind. This is how our sub-consciousness works: it seems that we arrived at the solution randomly but it wasn’t random at all. There is a system behind it.

If you are still here and follow me, you might have a question:

Where to keep it all?

My answer is – keep it in one dedicated place. Otherwise you will create more mess in life, and we’re currently trying to do the opposite 🙂 

I would suggest keeping it in a bullet journal.

Pss, never heard of a bullet journal? Imagine a blank journal that looks stylish and helps you live your life intentionally. This is what we’re talking about. Want to learn more? Check out my blog post

I’d love to add more value and offer my bestselling book Practical Guide How to Start a Bullet Journal”. 

This book is for beginners who want to understand how to start a bullet journal and get some tips & tricks. 

Click here to look inside and decide if that’s for you.

And I’m soo excited for tomorrow because TOMORROW you’ll learn how to use this information to set your goals. 

I hope you got a lot of out it.

If you have any questions, DM me on IG @tianamcboz.

See you tomorrow!

  • As someone who is into planning, I reflected on my 2019 and planned for 2020 already in November 😆🙈
⠀
Only on the 5th of January I sat down to transfer it all to my #journalforbusypeople though
⠀
But I did not.
⠀
Instead - I simplified it drastically based on three key principles:
⠀
x1: What does Tiana really want?
⠀
x2: What are the most important categories I want to develop myself in? (Reduced from 8 to 5)
⠀
x3: What are three important goals in each category? (Reduced from 5 or 7 to 3)
⠀
Wrote it down. Put it on my whiteboard. Now busy executing.
⠀
How are you getting on with your 2020 goals?

  • Do you make promises for the next year?
⠀
My friend gave me an awesome idea: "Why don't we try to take things lighter in 2020?"
⠀
- Do you see fewer results than expected and get disappointed?
⠀
- Someone didn't call you back as promised?
⠀
- You manager / client didn't treat you properly?
⠀
Take it at least one degree lighter than you typically do. Take everything with humor and don't take yourself and your life too seriously.
⠀
HOW?
⠀
My friend has a great way of approaching it:
⠀
Imagine you are an observer. You're looking at your life from the outside. It's not really you who has a leading role, it's someone else. You're just watching.
⠀
Being detached allows you to still make sensible decisions without being too emotional or sensitive about what has happened.
⠀
Shall we try starting from today?

  • I get an incredible level of satisfaction when I cross out the tasks in my #journalforbusypeople Link in bio.
⠀
I only get such a sense of achievement when I take the time to plan my year and then one-by-one tick off the tasks as 'done'.
⠀
How many of you are planning your year ahead?

  • Only 19 days are left till 2020.
⠀
This is the time of the year when I reflect on what 2019 brought and plan for 2020.
⠀
In my Journal for Busy People I structure my goals and brainstorm on the direction I plan to take.
⠀
2019 was the first year when I wrote everything down. Before I was relying on my memory.
⠀
And you know what I discovered?
⠀
Having access to my thinking one year back though my journal helped me see what areas of my life need my attention. For me, it's Finance and Health.
⠀
It helped me see what type of goal setting doesn't work for me, where my priorities are and who Tiana is as a person.
⠀
I feel much more powerful and in control of my own life. I know where I am going and own my choices.
⠀
If for 2019 my motto was: "Create and elevate". For 2020, I've chosen: "Act intentionally".
⠀
To me, it means a lot of things:
⠀
- choose people I surround myself with intentionally;
- eat intentionally;
- spend money intentionally;
- react to what others do or say intentionally;
- love intentionally.
⠀
I consciously choose not to follow the crowd but stand by my own values and beliefs. I came to that realization predominantly with a help of journaling.
⠀
That's why I really encourage you to explore conscious goal setting and journaling.
⠀
One way to do it is with Journal for Busy People. It's my baby :) the product I created and 100% stand by. I thought I was self-aware. No not really. Just now I'm feeling that my life started moving in the right direction.
⠀
I invite you to take a look at the Journal on Amazon US. Check it out - link in bio -, and if you don't like it, I'm happy to give you a refund :)

  • 49 days till 2020. Sh"""t. I haven't achieved all my goals.
⠀
Familiar?
⠀
Not to me.
⠀
1st of January is just another day.
⠀
True. It's a nice excuse to structure your thoughts and take the moment to reflect.
⠀
But the reality is - you can start ANY DAY.
⠀
1st of January is just a continuation. It's not a pill that is going to sort things out.
⠀
Life goes on and is not measured from year to year but by steps that we take every day to enrich our lives with meaningful events and changes from within.
.⠀

.⠀
Do you agree?

  • Walking through picturesque windmills in Zaandam I'm realizing that life is not about strategy. It's not about working harder, posting more or constantly wishing for a better future.
⠀
It's about the present moment, and I'm lucky enough to be able to make those moments meaningful:
⠀
✨ I'm realizing that I'm working hard not because I have to but because it's boring otherwise.
⠀
✨ I'm writing my goals and vision in my #journalforbusypeople not because it's cool to set goals but because honestly - I LOVE IT!
⠀
✨ I'm practicing gratitude and saying what I truly feel because it makes my heart so full that it can explode.
.⠀

What would you do if you could do ANYTHING?

.⠀
I've created a separate account for my Journal for Busy People. It's @busyjournal - if you were looking for a productivity journal, take a glimpse!
