January and the new year brings talks of resolutions and getting a fresh start with goals. I’ve never been a big resolution person, but I’ve always been a big goal setting and vision board kind of person. I find resolutions tend to be a silly thing that people talk about at NYE parties, and although they’re well-intentioned, they’re often forgotten by the end of January, if not before. Goals on the other hand, come with systems and action, and when they’re written out and posted on vision boards, and checked in with throughout the year, they have a much higher chance of being achieved.
Normally with the new year I do a full goal setting session that breaks down goals into categories and follows each one with action steps, you can read more about it in a post from 2 years ago when I first started the blog, 3 Steps For Planning Your 2016 Goals. However, with baby Logan coming any day now I feel like I am entering a year of the unknown and I’ve opted for a simpler version that I’ll share with you here. It basically consists of creating some simple goals for different areas of your life: family, work, health, etc. and putting them together with images for a really cute DIY vision board.
