A new year is like a promise of a fresh start, a new beginning, a turning of the page that might mean the turning of a new leaf. What can we do to start the new year well?
I am always trying to turn over new leaves. Too many times I’ve tried turning them overnight, and instead fallen on my face. However, slow, steady change builds up over time and after years of wrestling with those leaves, they are turning and no longer crumbling underneath me.
I’ve learned there are a few support systems that really help any organizational, motivational, or intentional goal stick.
Whether you have new years goals, a word of the year, or just a general sense that you want to grow and do better, these are the pieces that will help you do so intentionally and systematically.
This week I’ll be developing each one here on the blog so that you can be better prepared to begin this upcoming year well!
Here’s a sneak peak at this week’s series:
1. Brain Dump
Empty your head so you can use it for thinking rather than for remembering.
Break up your year into intervals and make goals for smaller chunks of time.
Set up the routines you need to keep your home running smoothly.
Learn the habits that help you build all the others.
Keep your to-dos listed, out of your head, and reviewed so they can get done.
