Founder’s Corner #20 Year Planning: How to Get the Most Out of 2024

We still in the beginning phases of 2024. However, it seems like “planning for the year” just won’t take a break. So this week I wanted to take a step back and let you in on the three things I’m doing this year when it comes to year planning to help me get the most out of 2024.

But first…

The Founder’s Corner posts are based on previous segments from our weekly newsletter. So if you want this type of content first, check out the link at the end of this post!

Now, let’s dive into today’s post!

Year Planning: How to Get the Most Out of 2024

Let’s start off strong with this great quote…

“Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.”

Germany Kent

The end of the year still seems so far away, and there are a lot of things that have to happen before we get back into review mode. But thinking back on my review from last year there are a few things that stand out:

  • The benefits of stepping into new things
  • Speeding up your process to speed up your progress
  • Giving your journey an identifier to dictate your direction
  • The power of a strong network in all areas of your life

These lessons have helped me so much as I was sitting down to shape my goals for the new year. So how can you implement these into the nitty gritty when it comes to some year planning?

Let’s dive into…

Year Planning: Three Action Steps to Help You Get the Most Out of Your 2024

1. Add in new experiences 

Research shows that as we age, life seems to go by faster because we are experiencing fewer things for the very first time. This has caused us to spend the majority of our days on auto-pilot because no new skills are required.

This got me thinking that if we continue down that trajectory, how out of practice we will become!

So instead, let’s focus on injecting new experiences into our daily lives. Planning your day, month, and year can help you to do this – simply make it a habit!

For example, here are some ways to add new experiences into your podcast:

  • Adding in video.
  • Selecting ways to monetize.
  • Changing up the format.
  • Experimenting with new ideas and topics.

Now this is just a quick example for your podcast – so just imagine the ways you can find new experiences in your personal life too!

2. Choose your word 

Next, let’s choose your word! What is a word or phrase that outlines what you want to achieve this year?

To help with this, let’s fill in the blank:

2024 will be the year of _____.

Your word or phrase of the year might be fitness related, or it might be work related. For me, 2023 was the year of continuously reinventing myself. 

This year I keep being drawn to the idea of “novelty” (and this fits in perfectly with the goal of injecting new experiences into my daily life!).

Simply put, I’ve gotten tired of chasing the trends just to get there and to realize that there is already a new trend. So instead, this year I will be operating with the phrase “pivoting towards novelty”.

When the trend goes left, I will be going right! Essentially, the aim is to be a trendsetter, not a trend follower.

So how will you finish this sentence?

2024 is the year of ___. 

3. Continue to build your network 

As I mentioned, there is power in having a strong network in all areas of your life! This rings true when you are trying to grow your podcast, build your audience, reach new listeners, find the right guests…the list goes on!

For this year, it is time to prioritize relationships. Not only in your personal life, but also in your podcast and in your work life! 

These connections can prove to be so valuable when it comes to the impact that you want to make in this world.

So make a point to attend a podcast event, reach out to your favorite podcasters, find new ways to connect with your listeners online and in person, and really invest in building a strong community around your message and your “why”.

Here’s To You, 2024!

So, let’s make 2024 the best year yet! Use my three action steps as a guide, make them your own, and you’ll be on your way to making the most out of 2024.
