Now that 2011′s here (and just where is my household cleaning robot and hoverboard by the way?) and judging by the volume of articles and tweets I’ve seen, it’s that time time of year when you might be thinking about setting resolutions and goals.
Stop right there! Put the goal down and slowly step away. I don’t want any trouble. That’s it, easy does it now.
See, I haven’t hidden the fact that I’m not a fan of goals or resolutions. Much of the conventional wisdom about goals just isn’t true, and slowly I think other people are seeing the problems with resolutions and goals and are coming to the same conclusion.
So this year I’m giving you an alternative and a great way to kick things off – a way to an extraordinary 2011 without using goals. And I’m giving it to you at no cost.
I might get strung up by other coaches for this, but you don’t get something extraordinary by working towards something fuzzy at some point in the future that you think you might want. You get something extraordinary by getting in the game right now, today, and having that contribute towards something that matters to you.

Let me know in the comments how you get on – it would be awesome to hear what your 2011 is all about.
