This is one of my favorite times of the year. 2012 is gone and motivation to make 2013 even better is in the air. The gym is packed (if you can even find a parking space so you can make it inside). But the best part…. The number of potential entrepreneurs getting the motivation to really get started on that idea they’ve been thinking about for a while now is at its peak.
Companies like Optimus are swamped this time of year, trying to keep up with the calls and emails from entrepreneurs ready to give it their all in 2013. It’s refreshing, exciting, and motivating for us too.
What we hear a lot is that entrepreneurs get trapped in corporate environments or find themselves comfortable in a traditional medium-income job. Rather than working on their idea and trying to better themselves, many simply just go through the motions of their everyday lives.
That’s what makes this time of year different. People, especially the entrepreneurial type, get very reflective around the start of a new year. It’s an opportunity to better yourself, your life, your income, and your happiness.
What you don’t want to do is be like a number of those that join the gym. They go 2, 3, maybe 4 times, and that’s it. Then, they slip back in to their comfort zone. It’s easy to do. We’ve all been there.
Getting your business plan done is one of the best ways to set yourself up for success in 2013. It will make the year memorable, probably a little bumpy, and a lot of fun. Make 2013 the best year yet!
