January 1st is an interesting and exciting time of year. It really is the best time, in my opinion. January is a time to reflect and feel grateful for the year past, and a time to look to the upcoming year and the upcoming accomplishments that will be achieved.
It's easy to sit back, and state a couple of 'New Year's resolutions' and then let the months pass, not really paying attention to the days passing you by. This used to be my way each year. Let me ask you this, isn't it more exciting to affirm exactly what you want to accomplish in the coming 12 months and then feel good about knowing that each day gets you closer to that goal? Things will happen that you could not have imagined, and you find yourself paying attention to things that seem to be pulling you in a new direction. The right direction! Ever since my husband and I have started being strategic about goal setting, and keeping a journal, we have experienced a complete 180 to what we encountered our first couple of years as a couple.
With much encouragement I suggest getting out that piece of paper and a pen and writing down exactly what you want to accomplish in 2017, and while you're at it, why not sketch out your 3 and 5 year plan? Revisit this every week, or at least once a month. What can you do to help yourself get to where you want to be? If you've thought about keeping a planner to help hold yourself accountable (and you are not sure as to which one), The Inner Guide planner has been a game changer for me, and I will never consider anything else. This is my second year using it and it has helped me in more ways than I could describe.
Here's a thought provoking question, and I hope that someone reads down this far and sees it (note: if this reaches only one person then it was worth taking the time to type this blog):
