It’s that time of the year again when we start thinking about the New Year and what we want to do, achieve or experience.
The start of a New Year is a great time to clarify our priorities, eliminate what’s not essential, and refocus on what truly matters to us. Kicking off a year on a good note can often set us up for a great year.
There are a number of things I do at the start of each year, which includes:
- Complete a full review of the year gone.
- Eliminate things from my environments, especially my physical environment.
- Set new goals.
- Create quarterly, monthly and weekly plans to achieve my goals.
- Get on with doing what’s required to achieve my goals.
It’s common for me not to achieve all my goals each year, but without goals, I wouldn’t feel a sense of progress or accomplishment. There are things I have learned that have made a huge difference in how many of my goals I actually achieve.
