The New Year is a fantastic time for goal setting. I’ve never been a fan of New Years resolutions but I find goal setting to be an essential part of planning my future direction both personally and for the business.
Where to start… pen and paper are essential. I have a gorgeous Kikki K 365 journal and on New Years Day I sat down and took some time out to write down my goals for 2013. Over the coming days I am going to work out how I will achieve my goals. A lot of my goals involve ‘making’ time for things, rather than ‘finding’ time which never happens!
So here are my goals for 2013…
- Organise our home and keep it that way (completing the Organised Housewife’s 20 day challenge in January)
- Get super fit (plan is to exercise 6 days a week)
- Drink less alcohol
- Keep hubby on track for his fitness/diet regime
- Try a new Thermomix recipe every week
- Use menu plans to organise our family meals and shopping
- Go on more school excursions with our 7 year old daughter
- Make more ‘me’ time
- Make the 1 full day a week I have with 3 year old daughter lots of fun and full of variety of activities
- Read more books
- Keep in regular touch with old friends that we don’t see often
- Delegate more
- Outsource distribution by June
- Use PR more effectively
- Blog more often!
- Send email newsletter fortnightly
- Overhaul systems/organisation so that business is less dependent on ‘me’
So there you have it… my goals for 2013! I’m so excited by 2013, a few changes have already been underway over the past few months towards these goals but it puts everything into perspective when you take the time to write it all down.
