It’s that time again…the beginning of a new year! You are either rolling your eyes or smiling with excitement and anticipation! Either way, you’ve got a fresh start and a clean slate to work with, so you’d better figure out what to do with it!
My hope is that you’ve chosen to set intention, gain clarity and focus on being the absolute BEST version of yourself EVER! This means that you have to have a plan. This means you have to figure out what you want to accomplish and how you are going to get there.
First, you must figure out what you want to focus on this year.
- Do you want to create a new morning routine?
- Be more consistent in the one you have?
- Do you want to spend more time and re-engage with your family?
- Do you want to start a new business?
- Do you want to be better at the business you’re in?
- Do you want to become more productive in your daily life?
- Do you want to master a new hobby?
- Do you want to build your team?
- Do you need to find new mentors?
- Do you want to read more?
- Do you just want to be more consistent?
- Do you want to work more on YOU?
- Do you need to get healthy?
- Do you want to save money, maybe pay off some bills?
Maybe it’s all of the above, right?!? You’re like….”YES! I want to do all of that”!
But here’s my suggestion: Keep it to just 3 GOALS for now. And keep in mind that these are not set in stone and you can add more anytime. These can be tweaked, switched out, and revamped as needed. But you have to start somewhere. So don’t worry if you feel hesitant – nothing is ever set in stone. Also keep in mind that your goals will change as you grow – and isn’t that the point in life ultimately anyhow? So pick the ones that most resonate with you most. Pick the ones that will MOVE YOU FORWARD. Choose what will make YOU happier. And most important…pick the ones that will challenge you!
If a yearly goal is too far out there for you, shorten it up. What do you want to do in the first 3 months of the year? I always set goals quarterly. I break up that “big, yearly goal” and figure out what needs to get done within that next quarter.
Once you have your quarterly goals laid out, then break it down even further – and here is where you find GOLD!
- What do you need to get done by the end of each month?
- What needs to get done each week of that month?
- What do you need to do each day?
And now you’ve created a game plan!
Last year was a START year for me. I spent the majority of my time figuring out what I really wanted to do, dialing in the message I wanted to share, and how I was going to share it. I did a ton of research, worked on my social media, built out my website, and created a platform to share content. I also created a morning routine that set me up to be in the right mindset each day, and to stay on track and focused to get done all the things I wanted to get done.
Now that the foundation is set, one of my main “big goals” for this year is to BUILD. I want to build on everything I did last year. It’s all about sharing as much content as possible, staying consistent, building my team, and continuing to share what I learn along the way.
Another big goal for this year is to work on the physical ME. I did a ton of personal development last year, and now it’s time to dial in my self-care. Better sleep, lose weight, feel better and have more energy <— when you have these things…everything falls into place. I had moments and streaks of great self care last year, but this year it’s about dialing it in and moving into the next level! It’s time for focus and consistency – and I am ready for it! I know exactly what I’ll be doing to get dialed in and I can’t wait to get started!
My third goal is to build my circle of influence – “my tribe” if you will. I want to surround myself with as many others who inspire me to be the best version of myself. I want to be surrounded by those who have similar goals and who want to work on becoming the versions of themselves as well. I have an amazingly awesome tribe now, but there is always room for more! Nothing makes me happier than to add more ladies who want to become the BEST version of themselves and are willing to work for it! Let’s get started!
I am so excited about this year ahead and I can’t wait to start tackling my goals! My plan is to make THIS YEAR the best & happiest year ever! I would LOVE to hear about your goals and how you plan to tackle them…and just remember, it’s all in the planning!
