What is she talking about new year’s resolutions for? The summer hasn’t even ended yet….Has she completely lost the plot….?
Happy New Year to you all!
I know some of you will be thinking that I am four months early, but bear with me……
With children at school, my life seems to revolve round the school year. I buy an academic year calendar for the kitchen, so I have just taken the old one down and put a new one up. This is the time of year when everything changes – it seems like a big new start.
Also, having spent the summer in downtime, planning, September always feels like a rebirth, a new season for my business, and also for me. This just seems like a more sensible time for me to celebrate New Year, so I would just like to say Happy New Year to you all.
So having got that out of the way (you probably still think I’m weird but hopefully you have decided to humour me) I have decided to make my New Years Resolutions now. Part of me always feels January is the wrong time anyway – it so dark and cold and miserable – very hard to get up and find the energy to commit to anything new. If I make the resolutions now and get started on them, I will be in a much stronger place come January.
So here for the record are my New Year’s Resolutions – business and personal.
1 To grow my social media following and interact better and smarter and more personally with you all.
2 To grow my blog following, my social media consultancy and my doTERRA business.
3 To find ways to work smarter and more efficiently and to stop giving my time to unproductive activities.
4: To get on top of all my admin tasks to that I know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing every day, and I stop chasing my tail.
4 To finally once and for all, declutter my house, and set up routines and tidy habits that will make my whole life run more smoothly.
5: To assist my children with setting routines and getting into good habits so that the whole home runs smoothly and I get the help I need
6 To eat healthily and take regular exercise.
7: To schedule in regular downtime, fun time, me time and family time.
So far so good. But I also know that all the productivity gurus reckon that one of the best techniques when setting goals is to hold yourself accountable. So for that reason, I am going to be sharing snapshots from my journey towards these goals on my blog.
I hope to share with you the hints, tips and tools that I have found the most useful in achieving the goals above. Once a month or so, I hope to do a wrap up blog where I will set out the progress I have made in each area. I hope to be able to inform, inspire educate and entertain you, as I journey towards my goals in these areas. I would also be very happy to hear your advice and anything you can share that will help.
Is anybody else setting goals at this time of year? What are you committing yourself to, and what are you going to do to make this the best year ever?
