You must have a list of ‘I will do this next year' for sure. Well, this is the year to achieve all of that. Be a hustler and make this year count.
Whether you have created a list of resolutions or not you will surely start this year on a high note with hopes as high as the Burj Khalifa. Hence, the onset of a new year is just the perfect time to plan your goals, new routine and resolutions, as you are on top of your spirit and full of optimism. This can be the year to achieve everything that you have delayed and procrastinated on so far. However, there is a chance that the high spirit will start to fade away little by little with every week but you can stay on track and have the best year by following these tips -
1. Review the Year that Was
Taking a look back on your year helps like nothing else. Things that made you feel most content and happy, things that didn't go as planned, lessons you learnt, skills you acquired, etc. Put all of these things together to create a picture of how your year went.
2. Create A Vision for the Upcoming Year
Journal how you want your career, lifestyle, love and relationships, health, learning, spirituality or well-being to look like in the goal for the year space. This will help you visualise your aim more prominently. Create a roadmap to your ideal life.
3. Make A List of Things You Want to Let Go Off
Everyone has old pique, bitter habits, regrets, and mistakes that we want to let go of. These things weigh us down, holding onto them does not serve us any good and we need to let these things go. Create a list of things you plan to let go of in the upcoming year.
4. Create A Routine But Don't Miss Out On the Fun
Pick up tasks, and activities that you want to incorporate into your daily life. Add them to your routine and make sure to repeat it every day for the whole year. This will slowly become a part of your schedule. This will help you discard your bitter habits and procrastination behind.
