Happy New Year!
I hope you had a lovely holiday season and rang in the New Year however you wanted to! We didn’t go out on NYE this year but had a quiet time at home. It was good all around!
The previous posts at the end of last month focused on your review of your 2018 business year. But that isn’t the only thing you should be reviewing and refocusing this time of year. Often, the steps you take at the beginning of the year can plot your course for the rest of the year. What do you want your year to be?
When it comes to choosing a theme for upcoming year, you can start by thinking about what you want more of. If you’re not sure, consider some questions about the different areas of your life.
To really dig deep, rate yourself in each and decide where you’d like to see growth. Then it’s time to ask yourself some honest questions. What do you want to create in these areas? Furthermore, what do you want to see more of and what do you want to see less of?”
Family and Friends
Are you happy in your relationships? Are you spending enough time with the people you love? Are you regularly speaking the love languages of those you care about? How would you rate your relationships overall?
Are you on the path toward where you want to be?
Do you wake up each morning energized and ready to go or do you feel sluggish, tired, and unmotivated? Are you making time to move your body each day and prepare nourishing meals? Have you sought out experts like a doctor or chiropractor for any health issues that you’re experiencing? How would you rate your health overall?
Spirituality and Faith
What kind of energy are you creating in your life and in your relationships? Do you feel at peace with the universe? Do you anticipate good things happening to you and for you? How are you living out the values of your spirituality in your day-to-day life? How would you rate your spirituality or faith overall?
Are you financially stable or are you living paycheck to paycheck? Do you have a monthly budget that makes you feel confident about where your money is going? Do you have a savings plan in place for things like retirement and college? How would you rate your wealth overall?
What do you want to achieve? Are there goals on your achievement list that you’ve realized aren’t important or don’t belong there? Additionally, what are some new achievements you’d like to add to the list? How would you rate your current level of achievements overall?
What activities do you consider fun? Are you prioritizing them? Are you regularly taking time away for fulfilling activities that energize you? How would you rank your fun experiences overall?
Ideally, you want to rank your satisfaction with these areas of your life on a scale of 1-10. There’s no right or wrong answer—if it feels like a 5 to you, then it is. If an area scores low, ask yourself why and consider what you need to change in your life.
You don’t only have to do this at the beginning of the year. You can have mini-reviews at specific intervals to see where you stand and if you have been making the changes that you want. Getting to your goals in 2019 will take effort throughout the year.
So let’s make it happen this year! What do you want?
