Going into 2024, the most disrespectful thing you can do is allow time to shame you. Time is the only thing that will show you your hard work or lack thereof, and in this video, I’m going to show you exactly how to go out and conquer 2024 with the proper way of setting goals. This is the exact blueprint I follow every single year that has allowed me to take strides in life and get ahead of the 9-to-5 rat race.
Without further ado, let’s get straight to it. Welcome if you’re new to the channel. My name is Matt Jimenez. I have worked with the greatest minds in finance over the last several years, and I’m here to pour into you guys everything that they poured into me.
In this video, I want to go over the exact way you must approach 2024 if you’re looking to win. And when I say win, since this channel is primarily around finance, I’m going to stick to analogies and emphasis on finance. With that being said, if you want to win financially in 2024, this is exactly how you must position your goals so you can achieve them.
Before I get into the goals and how to achieve them, do you remember in the hook the phrase that I said, “time shame?” Going into 2024, the most disrespectful thing you can do is allow time to shame you. If you’ve never heard that term, I’m pretty sure you haven’t because it’s something that I’ve made up for myself to hold myself accountable.
Let me explain what this means. Time shame happens when you go out on a particular whim to start a business, a side hustle, or a particular project, and you actually took the action to do it, which is more than most people would ever do. But what happens is time ends up beating you, and what I mean by that is you allow the mundane tasks of life and things to get in the way of your passion project or whatever it is you originally set out to conquer, whether that’s a business or a particular physique. It doesn’t matter. You let time shame you, and only you will be able to know if you got shamed because you are the one who set the end goal of what you originally wanted.
Looking from the outside in, people will see that you’re moving, you’re doing this and that. “Oh, he has a business; he’s doing all these things.” But only you know if all those things are actually progressive and are going towards where they’re supposed to be headed. People see motion; you see progress. That is why only you will feel the shame of time. Time either exploits your lack of work or enhances the work that you’ve done on a day-to-day basis to get what you ultimately set out for.
Time shame often has people fizzle out from the exact thing that they originally started. And this is something you must avoid because you owe it to yourself, and only you will feel the shame of the lack of effort that you put with the time you have been given. So do not get time-shamed, and this is the exact way to avoid getting into a time-shame shaming loop, meaning you start something, life gets in the way, you find excuses, and the thing you originally set out to do never finishes because time beats you with all of its earthly tasks.
And this is how you do it. You simply need to know exactly how to plot your goals accordingly. A lot of people think that you could just have this monstrosity of a goal, and you’re just going to take a couple of swings to get there. But you don’t really know how to get there, so you’re just going to try. And while this may seem good, it never actually works out. You know how many people actually set goals but never accomplish them because they didn’t set the real goals to set them up for the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is the end road, what you really want.
For instance, if you wanted to invest $100,000 in 2024, what that breaks down to is $8,333.33. The goal should be to invest that amount of money per month. Now, all those micro-goals of investing $8,333 each month or putting aside $8,000 each month will allow you to reach the ultimate goal of investing $100,000 in the year of 2024. And this is just a simple example.
I call these the micro-goals. The micro-goals are so important because they are what make up the macro goal. So, if you want to set a massive goal, you must break down that massive goal into…
