So, the first thing to do is to look back and see what priorities you had set for yourself as you looked toward the coming year. Did you make a list? If so, scan it now and jot down some quick, non-judgmental observations about each item. (And if you don’t have a list, here’s a perfect time to start one!) Ask yourself some questions as you scan your list of plans:
- What’s working and what isn’t?
- What’s not important anymore?
- Are there things that have come up that you want to add?
Plans and Resolutions: Affirm and Refresh
As you go over your list, affirm and validate your successes. The more you pat yourself on the back and acknowledge the positives, the more encouraged and energized you will feel. As your confidence grows, the challenges look less daunting.
Plans and Resolutions: Modify and Move Forward
Remember that these are YOUR plans. Whatever you decide to let go of, and whatever goals you choose to pursue, this is about YOUR time, YOUR values, and the quality of YOUR life. After reviewing your list and taking stock, modify it in whatever way(s) work best for you. Remember that nothing is writ in stone; and the more you make your plans and resolutions YOURS, the more likely you are to follow through on them!
