This year for my birthday, I’ve decided to change it up a bit. I love to see my goals in writing, so for my 37th birthday I created a list of things I want to accomplish over the next year.
All very achievable.
I printed out three sheets to place around my house:
- One in my bedroom closet – I can see it when I get dressed in the morning.
- Another in my nightstand table – Writing down the things I’m grateful for daily in a notebook, it’s there.
- The third sheet goes on my desk – Each time I glance up when working, I have a perfect view.
What Will The Goals Accomplish?
- Create better daily habits
- Fulfill business goals
- Travel destinations
- I’m most excited about the ones where I spend more time with my family and friends.
In January, I come up with a word of the year. Honestly, I forgot what it is was.
Oops. Oh well.
Instead, I am going to say my word for my next birthday year is: Connect.
Even if it’s not your birthday, the week after Labor Day signifies the end of summer with the kids back in school. This is a great time to reevaluate your list, check off what you’ve accomplish and add new ones you’ve been inspired by.
