So 2015, how has it been treating you so far? Having holiday withdrawals? Me too. It’s always good to have something to look forward to like a planned holiday. I try to get to over to Sydney or Bali for some mini trips during the year but I also like to plan a big holiday once a year. I’m thinking something along the lines of South America or Central America this time around, but as i’m also trying to plan my kitchen renovations the trips seem more and more distant.
I’ve been told that if you put something out into the universe you are one step closer to getting what you want. Did you see me yelling at the ocean the other day that I would like stone bench tops and a cocktail in Costa Rica? No, not really but my boss did give me a goal planner to help my put my ‘resolutions’ in writing. Firstly month by month, to break it down so it doesn’t all seem too much. Followed by what I want achieved in a year, 3 years, 5 years and the mother load: Where I want to be in 20 years.
Remember goals don’t always have to be so vague or based around your health. For example “I want to get healthy in 2015” will be a hell of a lot more difficult to attain than, “I want to go to 4 x gym classes a week” or ” I want to eat healthy meals 5 x a week.”
Writing your goals for 2015 down by month changes your attitude toward them making them more attainable. Rather than saying in April “I am going to get a new kitchen” i’ve broken it down to this month “I’m going to get my kitchen measured and quoted up.” The next couple months my goal is to save and in April to partly install the basics of the kitchen.
You may already approach your goals like this and if you do why didn’t you tell me sooner? While the above goal challenge sounds so logical a lot of us tend to make that blanket new years resolution which quickly becomes somewhat of an afterthought.
