How to Start Planning for a Mega 2017!
Posted on November 02 2016
It's hard to believe but 2017 is just around the corner. Where did 2016 go? If you didn't achieve everything you wanted to in 2016 or maybe you just want to have a mega 2017, this is the post for you! Here's a guide to get you planning your mega 2017!
What do you want to achieve? What do you want to end up with at the end of 2017? Don't just think about 'things' you want but think about how you want to feel. Here are some different areas to brainstorm:
Find what works for you. if you like writing things down, use a notebook or create a vision board with how you want 2017 to look like. If you are more the digital type, create a spreadsheet, use Evernote or keep on your phone.
How are you going to achieve what you want to achieve. We all have good intentions at the start of the year but bad habits are hard to shake off and good habits sometimes don't stick. Think about all the possible obstacles you might face and write down a contingency plan. Research about starting a habit and put the theory into practice.
It's important to track your progress and celebrate the wins along the way so use stickers, highlighters, pens or keep a spreadsheet so you can see how far you've come.
If you fall, get back up
It's entirely possible and probable you will fall off the wagon and your goals will fall down the wayside. If you fall off the wagon and miss that day of writing or going to gym don't give up just get back on track. Rome wasn't built in a day. Have compassion for yourself because sometimes life happens.
Happy planning for 2017!
