Let’s find some focus.
We often start a new year with a renewed energy and talk about resolutions and all the great things we are going to achieve. Sometimes these are do-able, but sometimes we are just unrealistic. Finding focus and setting some attainable intentions can be really helpful.
Let’s focus in on the things you’d like to make happen over the next three months. A focussed amount of time but enough time to chuck a few things in the mix. I like to brainstorm all the things that are floating around my head and then get real about what I can get done in the next three months. I also look at the things I’d like to include to replenish my energy, which right now includes a family holiday so I’ll have a little less time for the ‘work’ stuff.
This is the really helpful bit. How often do you stop to give yourself a pat on the back? We often don’t. At all. Write down everything you have made happen or experienced in the last three months. This can include all the big and small wins. Perhaps a work goal, or a nice weekend with family, or you hung some art on your walls at home, or you ate a delicious meal that will be a forever memory, or you made time to exercise, or you took yourself on a date, or you got some early nights…you get the idea! Put it all down there and take a look at all the things you are achieving, all the time.
Break It Down:
Now what do you do with this big ol’ list of goals? Break it down. Do what works best for you but I find getting a focus on your intentions for the week, and then what you can manage in a day is most helpful. See my post Getting Sh*t Done & Feeling Good About It.
Don’t forget to come back to this at the end of September. Remember, whatever doesn’t happen, just hasn’t happened yet.
