This is the day of the year everyone promise to themselves they'll start improving their life.
Few actually do.
Set real goals. Get into a routine. Be determined. Be realistic. Don't stop.
The last time I visited this site, I stated off the year with a simple post and the intention to post something here daily. That was nearly two years ago...
As 2022 is drawing towards the end with the holiday season upon us, like many, I find myself reflecting on what I have done in 2022 and looking towards 2023 with plans for improvement. Well, no need to wait another month or so before I start making some improvements.
A focus for me in 2023 will be getting my house in order. Both figuratively and literally. Figuratively with my finances being the main focus. Setting and sticking to some savings and investment goals will be the primary tasks. But also literally with home improvement projects and a thorough decluttering of my home.
Do you really think 2021 will be any better?
It will for me. I know that. But will it be any better for you? That is entirely up to you.
I've been constantly seeing it online and hearing it in person: "I sure hope 2021 will be better." I'm sure you've seen it too. It's next to impossible to miss it on any social media platform you choose to scroll through. But the cold hard truth is if someone is merely hoping for a better year, they will be sorely disappointed.
Hoping doesn't improve things, doing improve things.
Don't hope. Don’t wish. Don't make vague and lofty resolutions.
Make meaningful, realistic goals. Make detailed plans to achieve those goals. Track your progress and do the actual things required to achieve the things you want to do that will make 2021 better.
