January 2017 Newsletter
January 1st 2017
I received the attached picture at 1.20am this morning after seeing in another new year. It made me smile because if I were to make new resolutions, all of these would feature. ‘More laughter’ is an interesting one – laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
Resolutions for a New Year or setting goals for the first 100 days of 2017?
What’s so important about the first 100 days? I have often set myself (and my leadership team) the challenge of setting goals for the first 100 days of starting something new.
The phrase ‘the First 100 Days’ was first used in 1933 to describe US President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s now legendary First 100 Days in office, in which he delivered unprecedented results in the First 100 Days in his new role as President. The concept is widely understood in the business world to describe the early phase of a new leadership appointment…as well as to how you and I could approach the first 100 days of the New Year.
Start by asking yourself…
“How can I maximize the First 100 Days and make 2017 the best year of my life?’
I encourage you to set realistic goals that you can and WILL achieve, and to develop a winning game plan for conquering the first 100 days of the New Year focused and fired up.
If you think I could help you or your leadership team with setting goals and coaching through to success please get in touch. I currently have a few coaching sessions available on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings (either telephone, Skype or face-to-face).
I look forward to being in contact with you during this year and wish you positive breakthroughs during the first 100 days of a happy and successful 2017 (and keep laughing)!
