It is wonderful to see a new year arrive! I have been looking forward to starting a new year with new goals. Yes, I make goals for myself, I hope that you are doing the same.
Not resolutions… Resolutions can turn into empty promises that fail to be kept. But goals, now those are things that are weighty.
It is important to set goals and make plans to achieve them. I start out with daydreaming about what I would like to do; what I would like to accomplish in the new year. I decide on three or four things; I definitely do not want to get overwhelmed. If I get overwhelmed, I shut down and I will not accomplish anything. I then write down my goals and after that, I start making plans on how I can achieve them.
It’s is fun coming up with goals because I try not to place any limits on them. When I get to the planning stage, I then determine if the goal can be achieved in the short-term or long-term; whether or not it is a goal for the present year or if I need more time to reach it.
Nevertheless, I still make my goals and I have fun with working out how and when they will be reached!
So I say this to you, dream and dream big! Make those goals (not too many) and write them down. Make your plans, work them and see what happens!
Have a great New Year!
