I don’t consider that issues magically change from one yr to the following however I do consider in harnessing the facility of the brand new yr, new vitality vibe (though that perception could have been sorely examined this yr!).
Anyone else look again on their targets or their phrase for 2020 and fall over laughing? Because when you don’t giggle, you’ll cry? Yep me too.
Also bringing the laughs: the 2021 memes doing the rounds on social media. Here’s only a pattern:
Nobody declare 2021 as “your year”, okay? We’re all going to stroll in realll sluggish. Be quiet. Be good. Don’t. Touch. Anything.
Before I conform to 2021, I’m going to want to see some phrases and circumstances.
What if 2021 is only a trailer for 2020?
First rule of 2021: by no means discuss 2020.
Laughs apart – and sure I do consider we want many laughs in our lives – I’m a glass-half-full lady, so, sure, I’m sitting all the way down to map out my targets and plan for a 2021. I’m harnessing the brand new yr, new vitality simply as I’ve achieved in different years.
I’ve realized over time that you simply don’t must over-complicate this course of. Below are the three basic items I do – and write down on the finish of every yr. I’m somebody who loves new stationery and planners however penning this within the Notes app of your cellphone is simply as efficient.
- Reflect again on the yr gone and write down every thing you’re grateful for – or the issues that introduced you little factors of sunshine in a sh*&Tshow of a yr. Do this stream of consciousness fashion, with out over-thinking it.
- When it involves targets, determine on the classes of your life that imply essentially the most to you in 2021, for eg work, finance, well being, household, buddies, residence. To hold issues reasonable and achievable, I prefer to concentrate on one factor in every of my chosen classes. This would possibly go away me with 4 issues I actually wish to give vitality to and work on.
- Set your intention for the yr by one phrase – or a brief phrase. This phrase would possibly come to you from writing your targets. It’s sometimes a phrase that may evoke a sense in you – and one thing you may come again to to re-set your intention all year long.
I believe we are able to get too slowed down in considering aim setting must be a large mission, so we get paralysed by the truth that we’re including one other job to our endless to-do record. We can even assume it doesn’t rely when you don’t do them earlier than the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. For many individuals nonetheless on holidays all through January, setting targets simply earlier than life returns to some form of routine is a significantly better choice.
Maybe aim setting will not be for you. That’s very okay.
Be you; do you, I all the time say.
What I do know, for me, is that after I do that aim setting course of, it eases my thoughts and corrals the every day and weekly psychological load into one thing extra manageable. While I could also be an organised individual and a planner by nature, this yr has proven me I can’t plan for every thing or management the uncontrollable. What I can do is concentrate on what’s actually vital.
So, inform me, do you set targets? I’d additionally love you to please share within the feedback one factor that introduced you somewhat level of sunshine in 2020.
