How do you want next year to be?
As the year comes to a close, I hope all of you are already planning what next year is going to look like. If we don’t plan and determine what the next year will bring for us, it will just simply be a repetition of this year. It is imperative that we make clear goals for what we need to accomplish next year in the following 7 areas:
These 7 areas make up the wheel of life, and we need to be working on all of these areas diligently in order to have an overall fulfilling life. We cannot just focus in on one specific area because then the other areas will start to slack. The key is prioritizing what needs to be done, but without leaving the other areas uncared for. I encourage you to take an inventory of where you currently sit in all these areas, and where do you want to go next year. Then write down specific goals you want to accomplish in all the areas. For example:
1. Career- finish school, get a promotion, get a bigger salary
2. Financial- pay off debt, save for a car/house
3. Physical- lose 10 pounds
4. Social- hang out with my friend “Zack” at least 6 times this year
5. Intellectual- read 10 books a year
6. Family- Call my mom once a week
7. Spiritual- Attend church every Sunday
These are just some examples that can help you think of what your goals might be, your goals should be tailored to what your wants are, just remember that your goals need to be SMART, and that is:
It is important that we budget our time in order to meet our goals in life, because that is the only way we will dictate how our life turns out instead of wondering where it went. Remember we are the both the director and the main actor in this movie that is called life.
To end this blog, I will like to thank every single person that is following me and has read this blog. I really hoped I had some type of impact this year in your life, even if it was really small. Even a small impact through the words I write in this blog, for me is a total success. I hope you continue along with me, and I promise to give you even more food for thought, more information that will not only help change our culture, but also help change the person you see everyday in the mirror. Thank you for reading, thank you for your time, and I’m sure next year will be your best year yet.
