Happy New Year!

Another year is done, and this will come down to two general feelings. There are people who are saying “already”, and the rest of you are saying “finally.” If you had taken action on the last post and have reviewed the last year, you will have arrived at either one of those two conclusions. We all have had ups and down this past year. We can put that behind us now and look to the year ahead. There are several ways we can plan on the new year and you probably have already had done some of that by now. Here are just a few quick things to consider when going into the new year.

  1. Plan Realistically. Do not expect to accomplish a decade worth of accomplishments in just one year. Remember that life is going to happen and things will not go as planned.

  2. Don’t plan too easily. You will need to have goals lofty enough that they do challenge you. Just like you shouldn’t plan too ambitiously, but also you should have something that does push you.

  3. Take advantage of the support around you. New Year’s is the time when many people are talking about changing their life and reaching their goals. Now is the time to do something big and different because you will at least have the support around you of others trying to reach their goals. Also take note that the excitement around resolutions and goals will fade quickly, so you should be ready to continue on when everyone goes their own way.

  4. Remember one step at a time. Don’t try to achieve your whole year’s goal in January. If you can, you planned something too easy. Remember that you are most effective doing steady and consistent progress to reach your goals.

I hope you are have amazing plans and goals for 2019. I wish only the best for all of you in the new year and I want to thank you for reading this blog. I wish each and every one of you a happy new year!
