It’s that time of year! With the approach of the New Year, many people begin to reflect on their New Year’s resolutions (see last week’s post: New Year’s Goal Setting, Version 2.0).
Take some time to get quiet this week–even if it’s only for 5-10 minutes–to reflect on how you want your new year to be. Here are some questions to get you started:
- As you move forward into the new year, are you moving forward yourself?
- Do you have reasonable goals in place and a good support system to help you reach them?
- Are you ready to leave behind the things that no longer serve you?
- Emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially, relationally – which areas of your life are not working? Why?
If you continue to do things in the same manner, you will never reach a new destination.
Goals are wishes that need action in order to attain them. Sometimes the actions are not suitable to the goal and need to be assessed. Oftentimes it is the goals themselves that need to be assessed. Are the goals you’ve chosen congruent with your authentic self? Do they reflect your values?
Inspire yourself to exceed your expectations.
A year will go by no matter what. How will you spend it?
