In years past I have always had the resolutions like ‘eat healthier’, ‘be nicer’, ‘work out more’, the general stuff that we all try to be year-round. And start the year with a bang, meaning one really successful week starting January 1st! And then it crumbles and blows away like dust in the wind.
This year after starting my business, I felt different. Motivated to make some firm decisions, make buy modafinil with credit card huge changes in my life and actually set out to conquer some mind-blowing goals. I started to make this list, just for me, as I was out walking the dog. As I was working on some personal development the pieces started coming together for this post. So below are the things that I’ve been working on for me. Hopefully, they create a bit of an outline for you.
1. Put together your year in review.
Take a look at the 5 main areas that are usually suspect for improvement, for all of us. This will give you a sense of you where you currently are, what you have accomplished this past year and what you’ll need to give extra attention to!
Ask yourself these questions for each.
- How did I improve myself in this area?
- Did I experience personal satisfaction here?
- What were the accomplishments in this area? Was there a breakthrough or was I perhaps close to one?
- Did I remove anything in this area that wasn’t working for me?
2. Focus on what you want really want for your life.
With your ‘year in review’ in front of you look forward and ask yourself where you want to be.
How do you really see yourself living day by day what is your dream life looks like. What are you doing each day. Who is there with you? How do you feel physically and mentally? Are you hanging out with your dog or cat? Are you driving a kick-ass sports car? Are you drinking more water? Really get into the minutia of the day-to-day and put yourself into the lifestyle.
Ask yourself these questions to really dig down and define what lifestyle you’re aiming for. If there’s a certain way you want to be spending your time ask yourself why you aren’t doing that already. What’s holding you back from doing these things and what’s in your way? Can you re-prioritize things in your life to put you into that reality?
When you think about that lifestyle it might not be just about money. You may already have the means to be doing the things that you’re dreaming of however you have to set your priorities. It could just be that you’re stuck in a cycle of tasks that could be changed just simply by sitting down and thinking about how you manage a day.
Also think about how your life would be different if you had endless amounts of money and finances and paying bills were never a concern. Put yourself into that reality. Is it that different? You might find that the majority of ‘wants’ in your life are similar minus only the material things. Money helps but it’s not the be-all cure.
After all, temporary happiness comes when we pursue money, fulfillment comes when we pursue meaning.
3. Set BIG goals
Dream up the craziest goals you can think of for yourself for this year. Map them out in detail from yearly to monthly to daily and decide to just GO FOR IT.
Chances are you don’t believe that you can accomplish these goals simply because you haven’t achieved them already.
This is logic speaking. Logic only allows us to re-create the past because it’s based on certainties. Be open-minded and goal oriented and you can move yourself beyond that. After all you’ve tried logic for this long and where has it gotten you? Just sayin.
4. Tie up loose ends
Consolidate your leftover to-do’s from the year. Everything from small projects around the house, errands, tasks that you can complete in just a couple of hours. Get that stuff over with and you can clear your mind. If it’s something that is too big to do quickly then maybe you need reconsider. Maybe it’s more of a goal than a to-do item. Get sorted so that you can have a clean start.
5. Put yourself first
You’re the only one that can do this! With your arsenal of goals and your cleansing to-do list set out this year to take care of yourself.
Don’t worry about offending anybody after all it’s likely that they put themselves first in their world. You’ve seen it in others, and view this ability as an admirable trait. You may even be a little jealous of that!
Be the leader in your own life set the goals that you want just for you, first. You will inevitably be a better person for it and successes will follow.
