Things I learnt from an Idols finalist...

I was listening to Jacaranda FM yesterday when Kieno was chatting to the latest two girls to get kicked off Idols.

Disclaimer - this is not an Idols commentary so please carry on reading!

Anyway, they told him what their plans are for the next few weeks. I can't remember what the one girl said (and don't ask me what their names are) but the other said that after she takes two weeks off, she is going to carry on working her business plan.

Now I'm going to sound like an old fuddy-duddy but for such a young person, I was very impressed and because of this, I know she'll do well.

Why? you ask.

  1. She has goals.
  2. She has a business plan to reach those goals.
  3. She made herself accountable to whoever was listening.
  4. She knows how to regroup from so-called failure (in the Idols competition).
  5. She is resilient and can laugh at herself.
  6. She knows to take time out for fun.
  7. She knows how to navigate obstacles.
  8. She believes in herself and her ability to be successful

Now, over to you. Do you have goals? And more importantly, do you have a plan to reach those goals?
