Tackling Your New Year’s Goals
The most important investments require TIME. Changing old habits and developing new ones will not happen overnight but here are a few hints to help tackle that resolution list:
Focus on One Change at a Time
Make a list of your resolutions, prioritize them, and validate each of them. Do they make sense to focus on right now? It’s wiser to focus on the right change than to start on a list of vague goals.
Create a Sense of Accountability
Designate a friend, mentor, or companion for sharing successes, monitoring progress, and offering support. The benefit of involving others in your goals and plans is instant access to experience, knowledge, and wisdom— it also raises the bar of responsibility!
Consistency Pays Off
A resolution achieved takes consistency and hard work. If you fall behind schedule or are sidetracked for any reason, refocus by working in smaller bites. Will 15-minute increments make it easier to make it a habit? Will focusing on one day help you persist? Will writing down reminders or encouragements help keep your resolution top of mind?
Try these Tips this coming year! See what motivates you!
We wish you a New Year of health and happiness. Believe in yourself and you will achieve!
Best Wishes for this New Year and the Years ahead!
DECLUTTER AND ORGANIZE! A PLANNING GUIDE
Start with your WHY
Why do you want to declutter? How does the clutter make you feel? Do you need more space, more money, or maybe both?
Move on to HOW
Look at the calendar and find a few large chunks of time for the big projects, and carve out 15-30 minutes a day for the rest. Know that decluttering will be messy, but we’re gonna fix that. You’ll need an area to sort into piles for keeping, storing, and donating.
What are 4-5 of the BIGGEST areas of need?
Identify the smaller projects
What other areas of clutter do you notice? Are you having trouble in one spot, such as getting the kids clothes together each day or dealing with bills and paperwork? Write down as many as you can think of. Don’t worry if you can’t think of them all
Use a calendar
Put your BIG projects on days you have the most time. Write your smaller projects in the order you’d like to tackle them. Try to keep tasks in the same area together (it may get messy, so it’s nice to keep it contained to one area before moving on.).
