Happy New Year’s Eve!
The New Year is a great time to evaluate what went well last year and where you want to go next year — both personally and professionally.
Honestly, I absolutely love New Year’s Eve, but I am probably biased 🙂
Reasons to Love New Year’s
- Fresh Start – As a kid, I used to have a love/hate relationship with the fact that my birthday followed the birth of a New Year. It was usually the day before everyone went back to work/school. As I have gotten older, I love that aspect! It has been a great time to become wiser and take a fresh start with those starting New Year’s resolutions.
- Reflection – This is a great time to sit back and think of what went well last year and what you want to do new this year. One of my goals is to be more productive in the evenings now that I am working full time again. I know that I am more productive listening to music than watching TV. Therefore, one of my personal goals is to use music as my white noise and not TV.
- Take ACTION – Use this time to create a plan on what you want to do and where you want to go — something that gives you the chance to take action and follow through. One of my professional goals is to grow my blog. As someone working full time, running nine properties, and now trying to launch a successful website, time is something that is not plentiful. Therefore, efficiency and learning from others’ successes is my key. I am part of numerous online groups, and the members in them have great ideas. In order to be efficient, I have created a weekly outline. This allows me to put their suggestions in the template. This is an easy way to make sure that their strategies are met without making it stressful.
What are you professional goals? Have you created an outline and thought through the variables that can impact your success?
