One of my favorite things about this time of the year is finding some “me” time to put together my new year’s goals and visions. Last year was the first time that I created a vision board and it definitely influenced the events of the year. I highly recommend setting aside an entire day (after the hustle and bustle of Christmas) to be entirely alone so that you can create your goals and action plan for the new year.
Here are the 7 resources I use to plan out my New Year’s goals:
How to Create a Vision Board: This is a post I did last year with step-by-step instructions on how to create a vision board. Last year, one of my friends and I got together and made our vision boards together at Starbucks. It was a blast!
The 10 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Setting Their Goals: This is a great post by Michael Hyatt to cross-reference when making your goals.
Jullien Gordon’s New Year’s Guide: Every year, Jullien puts together a solid new year’s guide to help you strategize your new year. This is the exact guide I used last year and plan to use again this year. Definitely check this out. Oh, and did I mention it is free?
Jack Canfield’s Free Online Planning Guide: One of my favorite books I read in 2013 was The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. After I read the book, I searched online for what else he had available on his website and found this free guide!
NeuYear.net Wall Calendar: Instead of just planning out each month, why not look at the entire year at once. Check out this wall calendar to plan out your entire year all the way until next Christmas!
Future.me’s Write a Letter to Yourself: Need a little accountability? Write yourself letters throughout the year to remind yourself what you wanted to get done throughout the year.
Mint.com: If money goals are in your future, start using mint.com. This site helps you put together your goals and budgets. It also helps you track your expenses.
Make sure you block out your 2014 planning time in your calendar right now! Happy New Year!
