The beginning of the brand new 12 months means it’s time to mirror on 2022 and take into consideration hopes for 2023. I’ve to confess, I’m fairly unhealthy about this. Whereas the brand new 12 months invigorates so many, it tends to overwhelm me. This 12 months 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! Up to now I’ve centered on targets which can be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this 12 months to strive a extra broad method with function.
Experiment. In 2023 I wish to concentrate on attempting new artistic endeavors. After operating Atlantic-Pacific for 13 years (occasions flies!!) I wish to get exterior my consolation zone with new mediums and never be afraid to wade into unchartered waters. It’s much less about setting monetary targets or hitting numbers for me this 12 months and extra about pushing myself creatively, be it creating new varieties 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 12 months I used to be both exercising on a regular basis for lengthy stretches or under no circumstances. 3 days is passable with out being unrealistic. I discover once I set targets which can be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender means 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 may very well be used far more properly. This behavior is very unhealthy at evening once I may very well 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 evening and once I first get up every morning.
Provoke. My pal posted this article yesterday concerning the energy of an 8 minute telephone 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 typically with mates and to not await the moments once I can carve out a complete hour to speak. I can discover little moments every week to attach.
Curiosity. I wish to have interaction much more in studying this 12 months. The previous two years I centered on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 annually) and this 12 months 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 right down to slender down to 1 space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my checklist however wish to simplify and concentrate on one. I additionally wish to take extra native lessons which can be enjoyable however informative (I simply went to this cheese class – it was a stunning evening out however I additionally walked away having realized 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 might be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
