As we welcome the new year of 2023, it’s important to reflect on the past and set intentions for the future. One thing that I’ve learned in my own personal and professional journey is the importance of not worrying about things we can’t control, focusing on our health, and constantly expanding our knowledge through reading and learning.
One thing that I’ve learned over the past year is the importance of not worrying about things that we can’t control in our companies or careers. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress and anxiety of things that are out of our hands, but it’s important to remember that we only have control over our own actions and decisions.
Focus on Health
One aspect of our lives that we can control is our health. I made the decision last year to invest in a personal trainer, and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only has it helped me to be more persistent in my fitness journey, but it has also helped me to feel more energized and confident in my daily life. I urge you to take your health seriously and invest in it in whatever way works for you, whether it’s hiring a trainer, joining a gym, or committing to a daily walk or run.
In addition to taking care of my physical health, I’ve also made a conscious effort to read more. I’ve started with books that interest me, and now after a couple of years of building a great habit, I’ve expanded my reading interest to – such as sales, arts, and little philosophy. It has helped me to get a different perspective on career and life.
The Famous 80/20 Rule
Lastly, it’s important to remember the 80/20 rule in our careers. This principle states that 80% of our results come from 20% of our efforts. It’s important to focus on the things that truly matter and that will bring us the most success, rather than wasting time and energy on things that don’t.
80% of a company’s revenue is generated by 20% of its customers. Generally, we have a tendency to act on everything that comes our way. But, remember that only 20% of what you do gives 80% of the result. . Identify the 20% of things that help you grow in your career to focus on.
May this new year bring you new and innovative ideas, and the courage to take risks and try new things! Happy 2023!
