Guys! There’s only 10 days left of 2017! Who else is excited for 2018? I’m starting to see a lot of people posting things about how 2017 was the worst year and they can’t wait for 2018 to start. Which is reminiscent of what people were saying about 2016 a year ago. Look, your year is your year, stuff happens in life but it’s all about how you deal with it that matters. Just because the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, 2017 nothing is going to change. You will still be you, in your life dealing with the same things but it’s up to you to make the most of everything.
Make it a priority to laugh everyday, love with your whole heart and do the things you only dream of doing. Be realistic, one second isn’t going to change you whole life so don’t kid yourself. Write out your where you see yourself in 10 years, followed by 5 and then 1. Now make a list of your priorities for the year, the big 5 things that you need to make happen to get yourself on the road to your 5 and 10 year goals.
From there cut those bigger priorities into 4 and there you have what you need to make happen for the 4 quarters of 2018. I find it so much easier to focus 3 months at a time rather than looking at the entire year. You then take it from there and break it down into your weekly and daily tasks.
Then find yourself an accountability partner!! There is nothing more effective in my experience than having someone you are accountable to. If you want to check in with me, that is totally fine, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck to you all, you got this!!
