2017 and I got off to a bad start. You could say that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed for the new year. I made a few mistakes during the holiday season, and I also couldn't get a clear focus of where I wanted my life to go. In an effort to improve certain aspects of my life, my January involved a lot of things that some may classify as mundane: reading, studying, researching, brainstorming, and planning. But this month was far from mundane! I learned SO much about myself in such a short time frame! The inspiration and motivation began to pour in the more I learned! And with all of this ambition I have begun to formulate new goals for myself.
The beginning of January is typically the time for people to make their new year resolutions, but with my rocky start, I have just established my 2017 goals now in the end of January. Better late than never I suppose! With that being said, now comes the hard part: planning out how I will achieve these goals. I like to believe that I am good at planning, but in reality I am not. I make lists and outlines and schedules all of the time, but I never stick to them. When I saw this quote, "A goal without a plan is just a wish," I knew I really needed to focus on becoming better at planning. That is my resolution for February, creating plans for my goals instead of just wishing they would happen!
