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;
- Choose 5 people in your life. Write them a letter letting them know what they mean to you.
- Write 100 goals that you would like to attain. (Don’t forget to put a date beside them)
- Add value to someone’s life. Find a customer, co-worker, family member do something remarkable for them.
- Keep track of your thoughts, you can record how you feel in your journal daily. Say positive words to yourself and to others.
- Write a mission statement. Make sure you include your values and your aims.
- 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.
- Don’t try to please everyone. Accept the fact that some folks just don’t like you, don’t give them your time.
- Find a mentor.
- Simply do what others won’t.
- Get a fresh new network of people, feed off their energy.
- Reconnect with family you may have lost touch with.
- Express gratitude. Be grateful for the things you have while trying to achieve more.
- Plan a trip to a place you always wanted to visit.
- Write a not to do list. Make sure you are being productive and not just busy. Try to change a bad habit.
- Create a vision board. It doesn’t have to be fancy, you should be able to access it easily throughout your day.
- Schedule all your doctor and dentist appointments.
- Schedule date nights with your family, friends, spouse etc…
- 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.
- Take a new class, such as dance or pottery. Challenge yourself to learn something new.
- 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.
