The beginning of the brand new yr means it’s time to replicate on 2022 and take into consideration hopes for 2023. I’ve to confess, I’m fairly dangerous about this. Whereas the brand new yr invigorates so many, it tends to overwhelm me. This yr I’ve determined to heart on one purpose for every space of my life by focusing in on one key phrase for every class. Easy – and hopefully efficient! Prior to now I’ve centered on objectives which might be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this yr to strive a extra broad method with goal.
Experiment. In 2023 I wish to deal with attempting new artistic endeavors. After operating Atlantic-Pacific for 13 years (occasions flies!!) I wish to get outdoors my consolation zone with new mediums and never be afraid to wade into unchartered waters. It’s much less about setting monetary objectives or hitting numbers for me this yr and extra about pushing myself creatively, be it creating new varieties of content material, or one thing utterly completely different.
Consistency. That is the phrase I’ve chosen for my well being purpose. I wish to train 3 days per week. This previous yr I used to be both exercising on a regular basis for lengthy stretches or by no means. 3 days is passable with out being unrealistic. I discover once I set objectives which might be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender manner too shortly.
Intentional. I must study to be extra intentional with time, particularly on the web. I discover myself mindlessly doom-scrolling and falling into black holes when my time could possibly be used rather more correctly. This behavior is very dangerous at night time once I could possibly be studying or sleeping as a substitute of senseless clicking round on social media. I’m going to set extra boundaries about when I’m on my cellphone, particularly at night time and once I first get up every morning.
Provoke. My pal posted this text yesterday concerning the energy of an 8 minute cellphone name and I cherished it. Typically all of us really feel too busy, too drained, too no matter, to achieve out. My purpose is to the touch base extra usually with pals and to not look ahead to the moments once I can carve out an entire hour to speak. I can discover little moments every week to attach.
Curiosity. I wish to interact much more in studying this yr. The previous two years I centered on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 every year) and this yr I wish to deal with studying a model new talent, hopefully one thing that’s utterly unrelated to my work. I’m spending this weekend sitting right down to slim down to 1 space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my listing however wish to simplify and deal with one. I additionally wish to take extra native lessons which might be enjoyable however informative (I simply went to this cheese class – it was a stunning night time out however I additionally walked away having realized one thing new about cheese). Through the years I’ve embraced that studying doesn’t essentially need to all the time be about deep, critical matters, however quite may be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
