I love the idea of planning out the year in 12 week chucks. It just makes so much sense. A year is too long.
You set goals, your new years resolutions only to realize at the end of the year that you let them slip, again. Or you cram the last few months and manage to crank out some of those goals.
If you do the later, think of all you could have accomplished if you completed those goals in the first 12 weeks.
Having said all that, I haven’t found myself able to maintain consistency using the 12 week system, and I think the reason is in the link below.

Creating a 12 week vision and a life’s vision.
Your success in maintaining motivation with the 12 week year is all about vision. If you get the vision part right, the motivation and drive will fall into place.
This is where I was doing the whole system wrong. I wasn’t envisioning where I wanted to be in 12 weeks. My vision was what I thought my perfect life looked like and how my 12 week goals fit into my life vision.
“There is a disconnect in seeing yourself achieving a vision that is too far away. But a realistic vision of where you want to be in 12 weeks, you immediately get to step into being that person.”
You know how they say act as if, well it’s hard to act as if you’re millionaire when you have no savings. But it’s easy to act as someone who’s beginning to be an investor and manage their money. If your vision is that in 12 weeks you have have started investing and you’ve got all your finances up to date, you can easily step into your 12 week vision and start acting as if immediately.
Check out the link, watch the video, then think about where you can see yourself in just 12 short weeks from now. Set those goals. Create your plan. Read set go.
