Can you believe it is almost 2016! It’s the time of year we start thinking about the future and setting New Year’s resolutions for ourselves. I know what some of you are thinking, not again, lol! Resolutions seem so final and intimidating sometimes. It’s something you feel you have to get done. That’s why this year I’m setting GOALS. not resolutions.
I truly believe in setting yourself up for success, not failure! To me a goal is much more doable. I’ve decided to even break my goals down into little ones I can accomplish each month. Having simple goals we can achieve each month can give us that little boost we need as the year winds down. I set my goals according to things I knew were coming this year, like a new baby in May, oh my! I kept it simple the next month by making my goal to slow down because I know I will need it.
Each month I plan on breaking down my goal if need be to help me accomplish it. For January I want to organize the house, but that was too vague so I broke it down into three small areas to focus on. You may not be able to do this every month, but it is a helpful way of creating easy to-do subgoals.
This is a good way to motivate you to sit back and think through the coming year. Take your planner or just a piece of paper and think about what the year has in store and what you will need each month. I hope we can both achieve our goals in 2016!
Happy New year!
