Have you started thinking about your New Year’s resolutions yet? It won’t be long until the clock strikes, and we’re there, in 2019 – the year you promised yourself would be different, you would be different. Before you know it, you’re back in work, January’s over and the year is in full swing, and nothing has changed. So to make sure you achieve those 2019 goals, be sure to prepare beforehand. Going into the new year ahead of the game with a clean house, all your jobs are done, you’ll feel ready to take on whatever 2019 has to throw at you.
Start as you mean to go on, so with just a few weeks left make a list of those things you need to do and have been putting off and see if you can get them done before Christmas arrives.
If you have everything sorted in your home, then the chance are you’ll be able to achieve everything you want to outside the house too. If you’re feeling good and satisfied at home and you don’t feel like you have an endless list of things to do there, then your mind can concentrate on other things, you’ll be able to focus and achieve so much more.
It’s the niggly bits, the things you think won’t take too long so you can do them any time, the appliance repairs, putting things away in the loft, putting those pictures on the wall, all those bits and bobs that you’ve just got used not to do them! You’ll feel so much better for it, and then 2019’s jobs can start piling up. If it seems too overwhelming at the moment, make a list, prioritize and break it up into smaller chunks. It’s all do-able, and if you have to get a few people in to help you, it’s no big deal and worth the investment.
Not only that but you’ll want to close 2018 off and feel like you finished anything you needed to, ready to jump into the new year with two feet. It’s a good idea to reflect on the year you’ve had, what you have achieved and then it’s easier to look forward and see what you want from the next year.
After you’ve sorted out the house, think about what else you want to achieve in the new year or where you want to go. Get something booked, get the ball rolling. Start telling people about what you want to do and make it real.
If it’s the weight you want to lose, start now, don’t wait until after the holiday. If it’s a class, you want to take or a trip, get it booked in, so it happens. Write everything down somewhere where you can look at it and remind yourself what you want. Tie up any loose ends and then get on with it! Good Luck!
