It’s 2023. Wow! Where did the time go? So much happened in 2022. There were moments when it felt like the time was flying by and I was barely hanging on. And there were moments when the time was moving at a glacial pace, and I started questioning the path I was on and what was next. I walked away from last year feeling like I wanted more for myself in this new year. More focus. More depth. More peace. More gratitude. More love.
3 Ways I’m Setting Goals for The New Year
1. Decide what I want to accomplish for Q1 – not the full year
While I do have long term goals, keeping my focus quarterly (sometimes weekly or month to month) is more manageable for me. It feels a bit less overwhelming and helps me to not give up before I even get started.
2. Be realistic with myself
I know my strengths. I know my weaknesses. And while stretching myself to do more, be more and accomplish more is what I want for myself, how I do that and what that even looks like for me, will be structured around what I can realistically maintain and be consistent with.
3. Evaluate my previous year
I love to look back on the previous year and see what went well vs. what didn’t go so well. A new year doesn’t have to always be filled with these grand ideas and gestures, sometimes it’s simply picking up where you left or finding ways to improve the areas that you wish went a little bit differently than you originally envisioned.
