As we begin 2019, some of us will make resolutions, goals, and plans for the year ahead. As we reflect over the last 365 days, we think about goals that we met, the goals we missed, and the habits that we’ve adopted.
There are ways that you can make your new year better. Say yes more. You don’t need to say yes to everything—just say it more. We often have opportunities given to us that we say no to because we are hesitant about the unknown.
We often take too much time to make decisions. Again, we are not saying that you should make all your decisions in a split second. Sometimes we wait so long to decide, the decision is made for us. Even if you make the “wrong” decision often, it can be reversed, and if not, it has taught you a lesson.
Being more focused is at the top of many lists for 2019. The world is filled with “noise,” and we need to start focusing on what is most important to us and the people we love.
Take your 2019 list of goals (resolutions) and circle one. Now, do it! Don’t hesitate, make excuses, or think about it too much. Just do it and then move on to the next one. Don’t take 365 days to complete your list.
Don’t add to your list until you’ve finished everything on it.
This isn’t rocket science. Changing your life isn’t complicated, but it’s not easy, either. If you are going to make this 2019 count, you’re going to need to focus, but you won’t have to drive yourself crazy.
A great place to start is to make more room in your life for new things to happen, become more decisive, and drill down on your to-do list, doing one thing at a time. Looking for more free time in your life? Let Lilly’s clean! Click here to get a quote today!
It’s not a complicated process, but few will have the discipline to do this. People spread themselves too thin, walk away from opportunities due to fear, and suffer from indecision.
And in another 365 days, you’ll be writing down your goals again. Think of all you will have accomplished by then… Happy New Year!
