So you’ve set your goals and your new year resolutions. You’ve lined up 10 items that will definitely be checked off at the end of the month. You’ve got this.
Are you in the habit of reviewing your goals?
If so, how often do you do it?
Reviewing your goals is a very critical step to take in achieving them. It’s so easy to get bogged down by the little things, constantly reacting to what life throws at us instead of being proactive. It’s so easy to let life pass us by.
The days bleed into months and then years.
Many of us find that though time moves forward, our goals never do. We make the same resolutions year after year, the same tasks and projects appear on our to-do lists each week.
How do we solve this? How do we ensure that we make progress on our goals?

How do you feel when you are asked questions like that? Annoyed? Excited?
When I was younger I would feel incredibly annoyed whenever anyone asked me those questions – and they were rather frequent! Like how the heck would I know what I was doing in 5 years time?! Let alone next year? And why was the need to set goals so important when I can do whatever, whenever I want?
But now that I’m older, I finally recognise the importance of goals – having gone through a couple of years in my early 20s just existing from one day to the next, not being very ambitious or motivated.
Having been planning my life goals for a few years already, I’ve come to really appreciate how useful the process is.
It’s December! One of my fav times of the year, cause Christmas will be upon us soon! Tis the season to be jolly ~
And reflective, too, perhaps?
As another year is about to end, it’s the perfect time to look back on the past year and reflect on what you’ve done. What did 2017 meant to you?
