And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.
Hey, how was the weekend? Good I hope.
Now, the most important thing to do in December is not celebrating Christmas but to set goals for the New Year! Especially these few days between Christmas and New Years Eve, setting goals is a great activity!
I’ve been emphasizing the importance of finishing your year by Writing a List of Achievements, big and small, but writing that list will be much easier next year if you set a few big goals now, track them and finish projects all through the year!
That’s my plan. Here are some links to what I’ve been reading to get inspired. Hope they’ll help you too!
Great place to start if you need some guidens, at BrainPickings article How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love: Why prestige is the enemy of passion, or how to master the balance of setting boundaries and making friends.
How to Change Your Life By Setting Goals by Crystal Paine, who is fanatic about setting goals. Why? Because she has experienced firsthand the fruit and fulfillment that comes from setting a goal and working hard toward it. In addition, without goals, you have nothing that youíre aiming for. She writes:
Once you have those Yearly Goals in place, take some time to map out a plan for how youíre going to accomplish your goals. Write down the specific steps you will take each month to get where you hope to be in a year from now.
I encourage you to take this two steps further and break your monthly goals down into weekly and daily goals. You donít have to do this for the whole year right now, but definitely make a plan for January.
