I love the start of a new year. It encourages you to stop and reflect, thinking about the good memories and the ways in which you’ve grown in the last year. It provides motivation to outline your intentions and goals for the next. It brings a feeling of promise and a fresh start.
This year, one of my goals was to get better at goal-setting (hah!). So I sat down and worked through the Passion Planner goal setting guide. If you’re a compulsive list-maker or find planning fun (guilty) — I highly recommend this guide. It walks you through capturing any and all goals you have for yourself, in the short, and long term, and then helps you to prioritize them by time and size. Outlining my goals like this is energizing and encouraging, and also makes each goal a little less daunting by breaking it down into actionable steps.
A few of my high level themes this year?
- Health: I’m currently training to run my first half marathon!
- Career: After recently settling into a new job, I’m pushing myself to continue to find my voice and where I can best contribute.
- The Blog: This will be a big year for Ashley and I, transitioning into maintaining this blog with a bit of distance between us. But, I am so excited to continue to grow with you all.
I have a good feeling about this year. There are some big milestones and plenty of changes coming up, but I’m ready and excited.
