January is often a time of renewal, New Year’s resolutions and fresh starts. Perhaps it is a time of reflection of what went well in the previous year and what will be different in the year ahead. Or, maybe January is just another month in the year and New Year Resolutions are not for you.
I do not set resolutions. I do not place unnecessary pressure on myself to achieve unrealistic fitness, health, work or personal resolutions at 12:01AM January 1st. However, I strongly believe in setting SMART goals - Specific. Measurable. Attainable. Realistic. Timed - and focusing my time and energy on a Vision Board. I set aside at least 10 hours to work on my goals and my visions board for the year ahead.
Some people say, “10 hours, really?” I said, hell YA. Honestly, 10 hours is not a long time to invest in you, in how you want the next 12 months of your life to unfold. I recall the days I would invest 10 or more hours planning my daughter’s birthday party, a family vacation or sometimes a diner party with friends.
