New year – New goals.
One thing I have learnt is that resolutions are pointless unless you turn them into goals. Realistic, aspirational and positive goal setting is important. It helps us to prioritise and plan ahead. To some, it is a way to ensure growth in personal life and business. I always start my year with a good book and a great stylish diary.
So far, I am LOVING The Little Black Book by Otegha Uwagba
And I am making good use of my Katie Leamon 2018 diary.
This year I have also been using positive cards for some daily inspiration – They are amazing and are available as part of the motivation box, or can be purchased alone.
I always have a word for the year – this year’s word is PLAN. This involves me planning what direction I’d like my business to go in and also planning the major events in my family life. Planning ahead helps me to reach certain goals that I have set.
There are many types of resolutions individuals make, mine is to: Plan properly in order to achieve my goals! I spoke to some amazing ladies to find out what their goals for 2018 were…
