How will you measure success in 2020?

Updated: Mar 6



I’ve had a couple of weeks travelling and re-charging after a big 2019. I’ve been thinking a lot about the year that’s past and the one that’s coming up. I’ve been asking myself, what does success look like at the end of 2020?


I reckon it’s easy to get stuck in more traditional ways of measuring success so, I thought I’d challenge myself to come up with creative ways to measure success. It was an interesting exercise and I'd like to share what I came up with.

No. 1:

No. 2:

What possibilities would this open up if you focused on and measured success in this way? What other ways you can think of?

If you measured 2020 in this way, how might it be different from last year?


No. 4:

Who do you know that is really good at this? How does it serve them? How could it potentially serve you?


No. 5:

If you looked back over the past year, how many times did you do this? Would it serve you best to do more or less of this in the coming year?


No. 6:

How might this be relevant for you?

In which part of your life might this way of measuring success be useful?

I've decided to focus on one thing and that is, making sure I keep my promises (to myself and to others) and keeping others accountable for the promises they make to me.


2020 will be the year of No Excuses!

Keeping promises sounds really simple but it's not as simple as it sounds.


To be honest, it feels kind of scary and exciting all at the same time. Like sitting on a roller-coaster as it climbs the starting slope.


How about you?


Thinking beyond the immediately obvious, tangible areas of success, how will you measure 2020?

What promises will you be making to yourself? Will you keep them?
