Tomorrow ends a year. We can take stock of the successes and lessons learned from this 2015. I share some ideas to set some resolutions and make 2016 a wonderful year.
Set Some Goals for your resolutions
Goals might not sound that awesome, but they are a great way of sticking to your priorities. With just twelve months to the next year, now is the time to take those ‘someday’ goals and turn them into ‘today’ goals. Whenever you create goals in any context, it’s important to make sure they’re SMART: specific, measurable, achievable (and attractive), realistic and timed.
Try something new, just for fun
What is life for if not for its rich experiences? Many of us include new hobbies or activities in our annual plans. Yet, as the year progresses, we often get stuck in ruts and routines.
As well as shaking up your weekly routine, taking time out to learn a new skill can also help unleash your creativity and open up a wealth of new possibilities.
Many of us have new skills we’d like to try, such as learning a new language, rekindling childhood hobbies, or taking classes in a new skill we’ve always wanted to learn. The most common reason for not doing this is a lack of time, so try limiting activities like TV and Facebook and give yourself the gift of education instead.
These are some ideas I want to share with you for this year so you can feel it's productive and not feel so overwhelmed by so much going on around you.
