How to Make 2023 Great!

Are you ready for 2023? If you're like me, you aren't, but we can be!

Are you ready for 2023? If you’re like me, you aren’t, but we can be! Ready or not, we all have a fresh start waiting for us as we begin 2023. What are you doing NOW to ensure next year will be the best year of your life as a leader?

The truth is, we don’t get to decide if next year will be great or not; we do get to decide if WE will be great. I want to do all I can to be proactive and prepared as we begin 2023.

The best advice I can give you is to start now. If you begin thinking about the New Year on January 1st, you will already be behind. I’ve been down that road before; it is a long and winding detour to nowhere. All that happens is you find yourself in March or April “wishing” you had gotten off to a better start.

For years now, I have been meeting regularly with a group of guys. We study leadership and we do life together. The group is built on the principle:

Your capacity to grow determines your capacity to lead.

This time of year, we focus on how we can grow to become better leaders over the next 12 months. We will think about these questions ahead and talk about it as a group:

  1. What went well for you in 2022 re: personal development?
  2. What activity(s) contributed most to your growth in 2022?
  3. What did not go well in 2022 re: your personal development?
  4. What modifications to your development process are you considering for 2023?
  5. What are your initial thoughts re: focus for 2023?
  6. Have you blocked time on your calendar to create your 2023 Plan?

We will Assess what worked and what didn’t in 2022, Affirm what we want to repeat, and begin the process of making Adjustments for 2023.

Why not take 10 minutes and answer the above questions yourself?
