The beginning of the brand new yr means it’s time to mirror 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 middle 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 targeted on objectives which might be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this yr to attempt a extra broad strategy with goal.


Experiment. In 2023 I wish to concentrate on making an attempt new inventive endeavors. After working 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 kinds of content material, or one thing fully 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 after I set objectives which might be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender means too shortly.


Intentional. I must be taught 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 far more properly. This behavior is very dangerous at night time after I could possibly be studying or sleeping as an alternative of senseless clicking round on social media. I’m going to set extra boundaries about when I’m on my telephone, particularly at night time and after I first get up every morning.


Provoke. My pal posted this article yesterday in regards to the energy of an 8 minute telephone name and I cherished it. Generally all of us really feel too busy, too drained, too no matter, to achieve out. My purpose is to the touch base extra typically with buddies and to not watch for the moments after I can carve out a complete 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 targeted on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 annually) and this yr I wish to concentrate on studying a model new ability, hopefully one thing that’s fully unrelated to my work. I’m spending this weekend sitting all the way down to slender down to at least one space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my listing however wish to simplify and concentrate on 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 beautiful night time out however I additionally walked away having discovered one thing new about cheese). Through the years I’ve embraced that studying doesn’t essentially should all the time be about deep, severe matters, however reasonably may be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
