I hope you have had a fantastic festive holiday and a very happy New Year. I find the new year is always exciting for me as it is a time for reflection with regards to the year that has gone plus the anticipation of what the new year has in store. Taking that into account, I find it very useful to look at the following things:
- What worked well?
- What didn’t go well?
- Taking both the above things into account, what have I learnt?
- What do I want to achieve in the coming year?
- How do I plan to get there?
- What is my focus?
- How am I going to maintain it?
Looking at these questions enables me to continue and maximise my successful actions, avoid repeating what did not work and then focus/plan the goals I want to achieve over the coming year.
This can be applied to whatever you want to do whether that is losing weight, setting up a new venture, starting a new hobby or even moving home.
January is an excellent month for sitting down and planning your year. Money is usually tight after overspending at Christmas so if you are stuck indoors, why not make effective use of the time and motivate yourself into the new year. When you start to achieve your goals, how good is that feeling going to be?
So come on —- don’t let 2015 pass you by. Make those plans, take action and see what amazing results you can achieve!
