Welcome to an exciting new year. Another amazing and wonderful year with so much to offer. What have you in plan for the year? This year ought to be better, greater than last year. What have you in plan to make this year better, pleasurable and yield greater result for you?
What goals or resolutions do you have for the year? If you have them in place, how do you plan on achieving them? Are they realistic? Are they feasible and achievable? Will it propel you to get them achieved? Or just a junk list to write and abandon in a month or two?
Time flies, if care is not taken you will realize that you are stagnant with no goals achieved or bucket list or resolutions to keep you motivated.
If you have the plan, that’s good but if you don’t, you need to have a simplified one to help you achieve your goals and make it visible, where you can look at it each morning and evening and be motivated to take steps and action to make it a reality. If you need help anywhere, talk to the needed people and network for help to achieve your goals for the year.
Your plan ought to be your map for the year to help manage your time and do the needful to help your personal growth too. This plan can be edited and adjusted by adding or removing later to make it smart and achievable and not ambiguous and unrealistic so as not to get stressed out. When you are stressed out, you will abandon it, throw it away, care-less about achieving the goals and see meaningless reasons not to evaluate or either review it.
After preparing your plan, you need to have more copies to work with. One on the wall in your room to stare at when going out and coming in to keep you inspired and evaluate what you have done so far. If you have it on the wall, there will be days when the plan will speak to you on the wall. When you stare hard at it, you will surely be motivated to lift yourself up again and carry on with where you have stopped. I also suggest you have one in your bag. It has been of help to me. When am less busy, I bring it out to review and evaluate it, think of smart ways to achieve one of your goals. It worked for me on two to three occasions to achieve one of my set goals. I wanted to buy into an investment, I thought of moving it over to the following year when am ready. I brought it out of my bag on my way home one evening and kept staring hard at it on what to do and how to go about it and ideas began to drop, I opened my phone memo and typed it there. When I got home, I elaborate and meditate on it and made the right calls. By the end of the second week, it became a goal achieved and I felt fulfilled.
To simplify the goals, I broke it down to seven parts:
– PERSONAL (FUN, RELATIONSHIP, OTHERS)
With these seven listed above, it’s simplified and smart, you can work out how to go about them and make them a reality and have a great year. For every goal listed, there should be an actionable plan to achieve them. All you need is the commitment, focus and time to have to make the goals a reality.
In my next post, I will simplify one or two but elaborate more on financial and I trust the others are not tough and could be worked on personally.
You can share insight on how to make your new year plan achievable and if need be, I can also help in any way too to make it simplified.
