The new year marks a natural starting point fo change and growth, but it's not the end-all, be-all for change. There are 365 opportunities. If you've fallen off your resolution horse, don't give up! Just get back on and start again! Your journey should be full of grace.
1. What really happened last year? Be objective and ask these questions: Where did you move forward? Where did you miss the mark? What were the things that you wanted to learn, to do, to see that you never got around to?
2. When you answer these questions, don't limit yourself to specific angles of your life. Think about your personal life, your professional goals, your relationships, your health, and your dreams. it all matters.
3. Where do you want to see yourself by the beginning of 2020? Spend at least 15 minutes dreaming big about what you'd like 2019 to bring without editing your thoughts.
4. When you look back at your dream list for 2019, do you see areas that overlap? Make note of these- your brain kept circling back to them for a reason.
Use the material you've generated to begin an action plan. Write down each goal, and then underneath it, give yourself three smaller tasks that can help make that goal a reality. These tasks should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Time-Specific).
