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.

2. Interval Plan

Break up your year into intervals and make goals for smaller chunks of time.

3. Home Routines

Set up the routines you need to keep your home running smoothly.

4. Keystone Habits

Learn the habits that help you build all the others.

5. Task Management

Keep your to-dos listed, out of your head, and reviewed so they can get done.

Learn to love what must be done
