2018 was a period of learning and trying new things. I’m sure you learnt something too. It was a great year. However whatever you did in 2018 is already in the past. it will only count now if you build on it, following the rules of the New year. 2019, you may say is just like every other year. Maybe it is. But you need to know that there is a paradigm shift from certain focus in the past year to a new one. This post is to help you see what lies ahead, guide you in preparing yourself and certainly help you explore every opportunity and excel.
2019 is for those who have a plan: Now as common as this may sound, it is still the heart of every New Year. If you really want to make progress, then it will be fair for you to know what or how exactly you intend to do that. except you are just ‘wishing thinking’. But you know what, 2019 will not tolerate such nonchanlance. Action has always been the prelude for result. And you cannot act on obscurity. So, if you are yet to do that, get a clear picture of what you want for the year, make a plan for it, write it down and be ready to follow it through, with utmost commitment.
Every thing else could be screwed if you don’t.
Do all you can to stay focused: In today’s world, new Inventions keep popping up every single minute. And they are all beautiful. what’s even more beautiful is that we have access to almost all of it, especially with the new media.
But you must know that inert in all this plenty pops up specifically on social media is the “friendly enemy” called Distraction. Distraction is the Big enemy for the New Year. It can keep you busy doing absolutely nothing! If you want the New Year to smile at you, focus only on what’s important to you. make this a priority, Do all you can to stay focused.
Have a strong online presence: This is 2019 we are talking about here, nobody is going to come knock on your door for anything. They would rather ask google. Now, if you really want to get anything Big from the New Year, you have to take this seriously. if you can read this blog post, then you have no excuse for not having a strong online presence. Set all your social media platforms in order. 2019 is not for jokers.
I recommend you register with about.me it will give you a one page personal website for your brand or business, if you don’t have a website yet. Stay online by all means, but stay focused. While doing this, make sure you connect with people that matters to you. Whatever industry you are in, whatever brand you are promoting, there are people who already command authority there, use your data to connect with them. It’s a great way to help you stay focused, even while very active online.
Do a lot of videos: It is no longer news that people are more attracted to videos now than too many text. Even as a blogger, one of my mission for the New Year is to balance that. So far, I have discovered powerful and easy to use App that could help you create good and quality videos with your smart phone for your brand and business. I have made a fine video with an app called Animoto. Also, Videoshop, Unfold, Photoshop mix, Boomeranged, Quik and the wonderful cyberlink Power and Action Director are all beautiful Apps that could help your ministry this New Year. Explore them.
