Wow, we made it to the end of the year!! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a fresh start. Now, I know that the world isn’t going to go back to normal on January 1. But having a sense of hope is always a good thing.
So each year, I go back to my previous year’s goals and resolutions to take stock of what I wanted for the year. Now, just the simple act of surviving 2020 is an award itself. But I am thankful that there were so many silver linings. Like spending time with my family, becoming a fitness instructor, adding Tucker to our family, and even pre-pandemic events like our birthday bash and Aspen.
This year, I’ve been struggling to set specific big goals. Maybe it’s because now I know that unforeseen events can really put a wrench in your plans. Or maybe it’s because the changes I accomplished last year like redesigning my website and getting a fitness certification were really pivotal moves. But I do have some things in mind.
One of my key takeaways from 2020 is really focusing in on what I love. What makes me happy. What lights me up. Those are the things that I want to do more of. So some of those include:
OK, so of all those plus: end the pandemic, get my kids back in school full time, travel each month and have lots of celebrations, hugs with friends and family. If that can all happen, I’m good!
Ha! I know, I know. I’m only focusing on what I can control.
Before I sign off from this long post, I wanted to leave you one tip to make your 2021 or any goals happen. It’s so simple and easy which is why I love it!!
Are you ready for this life changing tip?!?! I read the book, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch this year. And while there are lots of great advice for achieving your goals, this one is so easy and simple but super effective. Ready?
Change your passwords to your top goal.
Hear me out. Let’s say you want to drink 20 oz. of water every day. Make your passwords something like Drink20oz or GetH20NOW! . It will remind you daily, if not several times a day on what you’re working towards. Typing it and remembering it will send messages to your brain to act upon it. It’s not permanent, so start small and update your password accordingly. And even if you think everything I just said was nonsense, what have you got to lose? I mean, how interesting is your current password. Just remember to make it safe.
Well, I hope you have an amazing 12 months ahead. Cheers to 2021!!
Also, if you want to write a goal of yours down below in the comments, I’d love to hear it!
