New Year’s Resolutions, v 2016.0
My last assignment before switching off for the lovely long weekend is to do my New Year’s Resolutions.
I discussed in my blog post last year about how I do these a little differently to most people — I do mine month by month, so the New Year surge of energy doesn’t get forgotten come January.
I’m not going to go into detail — there’s some personal stuff in there — but I can tell you…
- Like many people, I’ll be hitting the gym in January, with “I vow to go to the gym or exercise at least twice a week”. This is down from a set three times a week last year, which turned out to be a bit too ambitious. If I say at least twice, I’ll be more likely to stick to it and may squeeze in extra sessions if I have the time.
- “In September I vow to clear out my room and get rid of, sell or give to charity any unwanted items.” This is copied from last year, because I felt so great after doing it.
- And my year-long resolution is, as always, “I vow to take opportunities as they present themselves to me, and I wish for 2016 to be memorable.”
My Three Words 2016
This is the same as the first one I chose last year. That is because, even after a year of trying to be more daring, I still think I can go further. I have two speaking opportunities next year, and I want to do more. I’m terrified but doing it anyway. That’s what Dare means to me.
Last year was a very significant one. My boyfriend and I bought our first place, and my dad had a serious stroke and was in a coma for several weeks. It made me realise how little time I spend appreciating what I have. This year I plan to make the most of what I currently have in my life.
I feel like I’ve spent a lot of time putting down solid foundations. This year I’d like to build upon them. In my business, in my love life, in my home life, in every aspect, I want to take the amazing things I’ve already got and multiply them.
