New Year’s Goals

by | Jan 1, 2019 | Holidays | 0 comments

It is the time of the year when many people make their New Year Resolutions. The latest US statistics about people achieving their New Year Resolutions is 10%; most people abandon their resolutions by February. I believe this reason is why I like the term goal instead of resolution. I started brainstorming on my 2019 goals about 3 weeks ago, when I was sick with a cold. I am still pondering my goals and prioritizing their importance. I include personal and business goals for the year. Once I choose the most important ones, I write them down and start daydreaming about my vision board.

For the past 5 years, I have created a vision board. These boards are full of pictures and positive quotes; they are an inspiration to me. The boards are daily reminders of goals I want to achieve. When I look at them, it reminds me of the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words.” As well as setting business goals of growing my business, I include personal goals of exercising more and taking mini-vacations. I try to equally balance business and personal goals; however, some vision boards are lopsided. My goals for the year might be focused more on business than on myself. The question you might be pondering about my vision boards is; have I achieved most or all of my goals for the year? The answer is no but I achieved at least half of my goals. When I create big goals, I often have to make adjustments along the way to achieve it. Sometimes, I have no control over these adjustments and other times, I change the focus of the goal. Despite not achieving all of my goals, I find it very valuable to create a vision board. I encourage you, the reader, to create a vision board to help you achieve your 2019 goals.
