A new year brings a brand new and psychologically clean slate to leave behind the things of the previous year. And a lot can change in a year, both good and bad. And with a clean slate comes the opportunity to make the coming year your best and most productive.
You can easily change a few things in your life in a matter of months, so with a vision and the desire for change, you can be where you want to be sooner than you think.
Here are some steps to help you get where you want to be and ensure that 2019 is your most productive.
Drafting a vision for your life is an important place to start. What do you want it to look like in six months or, at this point, next year?
How about in five years?
Enjoyment comes from having a clear vision and taking daily steps toward it. Create an organized, inviting space to boost productivity and happiness. Design a space that fuels your motivation and self-inspiration for reaching your highest potential.
Often, there can’t be changed without putting ourselves out of our comfort zones a little (and this goes for various aspects of our lives). Could this next year be the year that you take the leap to owning a home or when you change your mortgage company for a better deal?
Why not make this the year to chase that dream job you’ve been plotting?
Sure, change can be a tad nerve-wracking, but think of it as an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that propels you to new heights of productivity and joy!
We all tend to groove to the rhythm of our familiar routines, like dancing to our favorite tunes. But, unless we sprinkle a little salsa into our daily routine, we risk getting stuck in the same old dance steps. While some habits may be groovy, it’s time to bust out those funky moves and explore fresh opportunities for personal growth and adventure!
But some habits will not be good for us, and that is worth quitting or changing to ensure that we can be healthier and happier. When bad habits do not tie you down, you are more likely to be productive too.
Having goals to work towards is such a good thing, and will help your year to go well. But there is a balance that needs to be achieved too.
Think about life over the next twelve months, and make sure you are doing things there that will help you be happier and more productive.
