As the new year begins, take a few minuets to visualize what the year will be like.  Think about your business and personal goals and imagine where you want to be a year from now.  Think about what you want to achieve.

Now that you have a picture firmly in your mind, write yourself a letter as if it was December 31, 2011.  Imagine you had achieved everything you envisioned. Write about what you did, and how you feel about your accomplishments. Seal the letter with confidence, give it to a friend and ask him/her to mail it to you at the end of the year.

I have done this a few times, and as the end of the year approaches, I look forward to receiving my letter, and seeing how closely I came to making my vision come true.   I enjoy seeing the elements I have accomplished, and find myself re energized to work on those things which did not happen.

So take a few minutes today and write yourself a letter.  You will be glad you did!
