I am not one to make new years resolution, but I do believe in revamping your life in some way to keep life interesting.  You can consider using January as your benchmark for setting new goals because it is the start of a new year.

I create little lists all year round and adjust when I need to.  For example, I use the start of each month as a benchmark and I adjust my goals as time goes on.

Here are 20 ways to get started on revamping the new you;

  1. Choose 5 people in your life.  Write them a letter letting them know what they mean to you.
  2. Write 100 goals that you would like to attain.  (Don’t forget to put a date beside them)
  3. Add value to someone’s life.  Find a customer, co-worker, family member do something remarkable for them.
  4. Keep track of your thoughts, you can record how you feel in your journal daily.  Say positive words to yourself and to others.
  5. Write a mission statement.  Make sure you include your values and your aims.
  6. Schedule family time.  If you have a busy work schedule make sure you schedule in some time with your family.  It doesn’t have to cost you anything, just make some time for conversation.
  7. Don’t try to please everyone.  Accept the fact that some folks just don’t like you, don’t give them your time.
  8. Find a mentor.
  9. Simply do what others won’t.
  10. Get a fresh new network of people, feed off their energy.
  11. Reconnect with family you may have lost touch with.
  12. Express gratitude.  Be grateful for the things you have while trying to achieve more.
  13. Plan a trip to a place you always wanted to visit.
  14. Write a not to do list.  Make sure you are being productive and not just busy. Try to change a bad habit.
  15. Create a vision board.  It doesn’t have to be fancy, you should be able to access it easily throughout your day.
  16. Schedule all your doctor and dentist appointments.
  17. Schedule date nights with your family, friends, spouse etc…
  18. Say yes more than no.  When asked to do something that you want to say no to and it does not affect your health or safety in any way.  Take a chance.
  19. Take a new class, such as dance or pottery. Challenge yourself to learn something new.
  20. Educate yourself. Visit your local library or get some audiobooks. The more you learn, the more conversations you can have.

This is a new year. I’m calling it the year of no excuses.  Join me on a mission to be the best that we can be. Let me know how you decide to kick-start your 2019.
