About this Guide
There are 8 thought provoking questions in this guide. Based on design thinking
processes, they have been developed with the goal of creating a framework for you to
clearly plan, commit and track your progress towards achieving an exciting 2015.
Keep in mind:
• Planning takes time. The time that it will take you to go through the guide will vary on
your level of experience with these questions. I recommend you to plan at least 4 hours
for it but be flexible enough to take the necessary time to complete the whole guide at
once.
• Create the space it deserves. Silent your phone and disconnect from the internet. Plan it
in advance and tell people that you will not be reachable within this time frame.
• Jump right into it. Don’t get distracted checking messages and emails. The best is wake
up, refresh and start working on it. Trust me.
• Write everything down. Take a notebook, nothing better than a blank canvas to turn your
ideas into a visual action plan. In the end is not all about what you write but about the
learning process you go through to develop the material. By writing it, you reinforce the
information.
Jim Carrey
If you can fail at doing
something you don't
like, then why not try
doing something you do
love.
1. How do you
ENVISION yourself in
December 2015?
It all starts from the end. You can’t figure out what you
need to if you don’t know where you want to go.
Imagine it’s 6pm on December 31st, 2015 and you just
realised that you have some free time before heading out
to meet your friends. As you seat on your kitchen table,
you start thinking about the year that you just had. You
seem proud, satisfied and more importantly very happy
about the way things turned out. Why would that be?
Who have you become?
How do you see yourself?
Where in your life are you?
For example.
I’m more self-confidence than before and my
communication skills have really improved. Thanks to
working on my emotional intelligence, my relationships
both at work and outside have deepened, making me
feel more fulfilled and satisfied. It even tripled my monthly
income.
Keep it as simple. One paragraph, no more than 5 main
points. Just write down who you would like to be in a
year’s time. Forget about constraints of money, time
physical, mental, etc.
2. What are your
2015 GOALS?
Here is where you develop your list. Make sure to follow the
instructions step by step. Think of all the things you want to achieve
in 2015. Write them down now and don’t come back to this guide
until you finish the list. It should take between 15 to 20 mins.
Chances are that you have many small goals, objectives and tasks
all together. This will be confusing when it comes to planing and
implementation. The task now is to organise your list by goals,
objectives and tasks. You should have 5 main goals from where you
will proceed to develop the rest.
Goals vs Objectives vs Tasks. The goals are bigger and less specific
than objectives. Also their time frame will be bigger since you need
to achieve a group of objectives to achieve a goal. The tasks are
the small action steps that make you fulfil the objective.
For example.
Goals are hard to measure, that is why it’s important that
objectives are more specific.
GOALS OBJECTIVES TASKS
Have a healthier lifestyle
Work on my Diet
Eat smaller portions
Don’t eat carbs
Stop drinking cola
Do more exercise
go running in the mornings
Join the gym
Use the bike to go to work
Face my fears
Go skydigving
Save money
Find somebody to do it with
Book it by May
Learn to snowboard
3. Are your goals
really ALIGNED with
your vision?
Are you willing to take on the challenge? Are your goals
really aligned with your vision? Tim Ferris explains in his
book “The 4 Hour Work Week” how most of the time we try
to set “realistic” goals. This pushes us to set goals that in
the end are actually mediocre and; therefore, their rewards
are not enough to commit to the sacrifice they require.
If you want to see a change in your life, you must push
yourself out of your comfort zone. Otherwise it would be
crazy to expect different results compare to 2014.
Also think that just because you don’t have the ability or the
network to reach your goal now, it doesn’t mean that you
will not work towards it later.
We tend to look for easy ways or tricks that will make us
better at things. We are inpatient and we don’t like investing
the time that succeeding at goals requires.
Being successful is not hard, what is hard is being average
because that is where the competition really is.
You can’t expect to be good at speaking at public if you
don’t push your self to get on the stage. Abilities take time to
build in you and it’s only through your hard, constant work
that you will succeed at them. Don’t be afraid to set high
goals, if you really want to achieve them, you will do what is
needed.
Our
comfort
zoneWhere the
magic happens
Albert Einstein
A person who never
made a mistake never
tried anything new.
4. WHERE are you
now?
Now that we know where we want to go and we understand
the commitments we must make to get there, we need to
understand where we are.
This way, we can evaluate what kind of skills and resources do
we have have that will allow us to achieve our goals and
therefore, our overall vision for 2015.
You will need to do now an evaluation of your personal
environment. In other words, a personal SWOT.
SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and
Threats. Commonly used in business we can easily adapt it to
assess our current state and uncover opportunities or threats
that may jeopardise our success.
For example.
STRENGTHS WEAKNESES
✓ Responsible
✓ Reliable
✓ Creative
✓ Communication Skills
✓ Empathetic
✓ High expenses
✓ Low income
✓ Inpatient
✓ Poor time management
skills
OPPORTUNITIES THREATS
✓ New job interview
✓ Network of contacts
✓ Lack of time
✓ Family responsibilities
INTERNALEXTERNAL
The table:
The top part, is regarding what it’s internal to you. This means all the things
that you have control over. Meaning that if you want, you can take action and
use them or improve them. i.e. if you are a good communicator, you should
exploit this skill by taking on roles that require you to speak in public. At the
same time, if you lack a skill, the idea is not to avoid it but rather push yourself
to improve at it.
By doing this, you should be able to understand yourself better. Be real, there
is no need to fool yourself. The idea is to find out where you are and which
resources you have already.
The bottom part, is focused on the external side. This are the things that affect
you or have an influence over you but, you can’t really do something about
them. i.e. you can prepare as much as you can for a job but, in the end, the
decision doesn’t depend on you. Or perhaps a new law that changes
regulations in your industry.

5. What are your
ROLES?
Maybe you are a student, for sure you are a son, perhaps
you are a boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe you are an athlete
and I assume that you are a friend. All this are different
roles in which you engage in your daily life.
The idea is to have a deeper look at them, this way we
will be able to get a full perspective of the current reality
and more importantly, allow you to visualise the ideal
state to which you want to take them.
For example.
ROLE SITUATION IDEAL STATUS
Student
I’m currently have way through my studies and 3
semesters behind schedule.
finish with all the classes by the
end of the year
Son
Since I moved away, I haven’t spoken that often
with my parents except for when I need something
from them.
I would like to see my parents
more often.
Boyfriend
I’m very satisfied with my relationship. I feel more
confident and safe. I’m committed and in love.
Already there, just make sure not
to get lazy about it.
Work
I don’t really like my job but the people are nice
and it’s close to home.
I enjoy the working environment
so I will request to have my tasks
changed.
Friend Nothing to change here. Keep it like it is.
Personal
I would like to do more exercise but the lack of time
is really a problem.
Organise my time better to be
able to work out and learn another
foreign language.
6. Are your ROLES
really aligned with
your GOALS?
It’s time to double check before we go into planning. Do
your goals really make sense? Is your 2015 vision aligned
with how you want things to be? Take the chance to
review what you have done, your ideas, wishes and
goals. Will they push you to grow out of your comfort
zone? Will they push you to make other people’s life
better? Is this really what you want to strive for in 2015?
Only proceed if your answer to all these questions is
yes…
Colin Powell
A dream doesn't become
a reality through magic;
it takes sweat,
determination and hard
work.
7. How about your
ACTION plan?
This is where most of us drop the towel. We always want to do many things but,
then we don’t develop the strategy that will allow us to reach them. How are we
going to push ourselves to achieve them if we don’t know what we need to do.
1. Make the process measurable: what is the minimum that you need to do or
achieve for you to be satisfied? If one of your goals is to “lose weight,” then put
down how many kilos do you want to lose. Do this for all of them.
2. Break down the goals into objectives and then further down to tasks. Make sure
to write them, it doesn’t matter how simple they may be. If you need to send an
email or call somebody to coordinate a meeting it should be there; as well as,
the development of the meeting’s agenda. The better overview you have, the
easier will be for you to stay on track and succeed. Don’t exaggerate, you don’t
need to go all the way to taking a shower and brushing your teeth.
Be flexible and understand that you will need to make changes and sacrifices in
your life in order to achieve your goals.
3. Assign deadlines. Start by figuring out by when would you like to achieve the
goal and work your way down, you will be surprise how early you should start
some of them. Make sure to take into consideration that some tasks may take
weeks, specially if you need support from others.
Keep in mind that you do need time to sleep, get ready,
transportation, house chores (cleaning, cooking, washing),
shopping. These are things that we tend to overlook but
more importantly is allocating space to relaxing and
enjoying. The worse thing you can do is pack everything
with the excuse of lack of time. If you don’t have enough
time is because you don’t know how to manage it wisely.
Don’t plan more than 2 or 3 major tasks per days. If you
want more tips on increasing your productivity, read “The 4
hour work week” by Tim Ferris.
I have not given you an example of the action plan because
I don’t want to influence your thinking. In the end is your
plan and it should make sense to you. That is why I
provided you with a detail development path since the 1st
question so you can now compile everything together.
8. Where should you
be by June to make
your 2015 a
REALITY?
Can you answer this question? Can you tell where in your
plan should you be by June 2015? That is the goal of
creating milestones. What should you have achieved by
30th of March 2015? 30th of June 2015? 30th of
September 2015? If you have the answer, you know
what you should be doing.
If your goal is to save $5,000 by December 31st, 2015
the that means that you should save $417 per month or
about $105 per week. In order to make sure that you
reach your goal you should know that if you start in
January 1st, on March 31st you should have already
$1,251. If you don’t, you are already behind schedule
and changes should be made to your strategy.
Congrats!
You made it all the way to the end.
I wish you nothing but
success. Now go on
and have an amazing
year!
Always keep in mind that self-development is a constant
process. Make sure not to get comfortable in a lifestyle you
are not fully happy with. Make it a rule to push yourself for
more. Procrastination is the enemy. Reaching success is not
supposed to be easy; otherwise, everybody would. Just
understand what you have to do and keep yourself focus on
the bigger, final reward because that is the one that will
change everything.
Yours,

  • 22. 6. Are your ROLES really aligned with your GOALS?
  • 23. It’s time to double check before we go into planning. Do your goals really make sense? Is your 2015 vision aligned with how you want things to be? Take the chance to review what you have done, your ideas, wishes and goals. Will they push you to grow out of your comfort zone? Will they push you to make other people’s life better? Is this really what you want to strive for in 2015? Only proceed if your answer to all these questions is yes…

  • 25. 7. How about your ACTION plan?
  • 26. This is where most of us drop the towel. We always want to do many things but, then we don’t develop the strategy that will allow us to reach them. How are we going to push ourselves to achieve them if we don’t know what we need to do. 1. Make the process measurable: what is the minimum that you need to do or achieve for you to be satisfied? If one of your goals is to “lose weight,” then put down how many kilos do you want to lose. Do this for all of them. 2. Break down the goals into objectives and then further down to tasks. Make sure to write them, it doesn’t matter how simple they may be. If you need to send an email or call somebody to coordinate a meeting it should be there; as well as, the development of the meeting’s agenda. The better overview you have, the easier will be for you to stay on track and succeed. Don’t exaggerate, you don’t need to go all the way to taking a shower and brushing your teeth. Be flexible and understand that you will need to make changes and sacrifices in your life in order to achieve your goals. 3. Assign deadlines. Start by figuring out by when would you like to achieve the goal and work your way down, you will be surprise how early you should start some of them. Make sure to take into consideration that some tasks may take weeks, specially if you need support from others.
  • 27. Keep in mind that you do need time to sleep, get ready, transportation, house chores (cleaning, cooking, washing), shopping. These are things that we tend to overlook but more importantly is allocating space to relaxing and enjoying. The worse thing you can do is pack everything with the excuse of lack of time. If you don’t have enough time is because you don’t know how to manage it wisely. Don’t plan more than 2 or 3 major tasks per days. If you want more tips on increasing your productivity, read “The 4 hour work week” by Tim Ferris. I have not given you an example of the action plan because I don’t want to influence your thinking. In the end is your plan and it should make sense to you. That is why I provided you with a detail development path since the 1st question so you can now compile everything together.
  • 28. 8. Where should you be by June to make your 2015 a REALITY?
  • 29. Can you answer this question? Can you tell where in your plan should you be by June 2015? That is the goal of creating milestones. What should you have achieved by 30th of March 2015? 30th of June 2015? 30th of September 2015? If you have the answer, you know what you should be doing. If your goal is to save $5,000 by December 31st, 2015 the that means that you should save $417 per month or about $105 per week. In order to make sure that you reach your goal you should know that if you start in January 1st, on March 31st you should have already $1,251. If you don’t, you are already behind schedule and changes should be made to your strategy.

  • 32. Always keep in mind that self-development is a constant process. Make sure not to get comfortable in a lifestyle you are not fully happy with. Make it a rule to push yourself for more. Procrastination is the enemy. Reaching success is not supposed to be easy; otherwise, everybody would. Just understand what you have to do and keep yourself focus on the bigger, final reward because that is the one that will change everything. Yours, Juan Guerra Founder of
