Evaluate Last Year

Before we can create the best year ever, it’s important to reflect on the past. As we enter a new year, it is beneficial to look back and evaluate what worked and what didn’t work for you in the last year. Think about the challenges and accomplishments you had throughout the last year. Consider what went well and what didn’t go so well.

Take some time to look through your calendar and reflect on the goals you set last year. Write down the goals that were achieved and those that weren’t accomplished. After you finish reflecting on the previous year, write down what you learned from this process. Ask yourself questions such as: What could I do differently to get better results?

By taking the time to reflect on last year, you can gain clarity and insight on how to make this year your best one yet. It can also help to identify patterns or habits that may have held you back in the past and make changes to ensure these don’t repeat themselves in the future.

Set Your Intention For This Year

Setting an intention for the year is a powerful way to stay focused and motivated. Ask yourself questions such as:

-What do I want to achieve this year? 

-What are my values?

-What kind of person do I want to become? 

-How can I make this my best year yet? 

Once you have a clear idea of your goals and values, write them down or create a vision board to keep them visible. Your intention should be meaningful and achievable. Make sure it’s something that will inspire and motivate you throughout the year. It can be anything from becoming more confident, to spending more time with family, to pursuing a new career. 

Remember that setting an intention doesn’t mean it will be easy. It takes dedication and hard work to achieve your goals, but if you stay focused on your intention it will keep you going during the tough times.

Choose Your Word For The Year

It can be difficult to stay motivated and focused on your goals throughout the year. Having a single word to focus on can help you keep your intention in the forefront of your mind and remind you to stay on track.

Pick a word that reflects what you want to achieve this year. It could be a verb like ‘thrive’ or an adjective like ‘grateful’. Whatever your word is, make sure it has meaning and significance to you.

Write down your word in a journal, create a vision board with it, or write it on post-it notes and place them around your house. Having tangible reminders of your goal(s) will help keep you on track. You can also use it as a mantra when you feel overwhelmed or unmotivated. Repeat it often and let it be a guiding light throughout the year. 

Remember, you don’t have to stick to one word all year. As life changes and evolves, so can your word. Feel free to adjust your word periodically if needed. The important thing is that you keep your intention and goals in sight as you move forward!

Set Realistic Goals

Setting realistic goals is the key to achieving success this year. It’s important to set attainable goals that will push you out of your comfort zone, but that you can achieve.

Start by taking a few moments to reflect on what you want to accomplish in the coming year. Do you want to learn a new skill, find a new job, start a business, take a vacation, write a book, or launch a podcast? Think about how you’ll measure your success. Do you want to make more money, hit a certain number of subscribers, or simply just feel better about yourself?

Once you’ve identified your goals, break them down into smaller, achievable steps. For example, if your goal is to save $10,000 in the next year, create monthly goals and action steps to get you there. Consider setting up an automatic transfer from your checking account to a separate savings account each month.

Another great way to make sure you stay on track is to create an accountability partner. Find someone who is working towards similar goals and commit to checking in with each other regularly. It could be someone in your family or friend group, or even someone online in a professional networking group. Having an accountability partner will help keep you motivated and inspired throughout the year.

By breaking down your goals into smaller, achievable tasks and having someone hold you accountable for your progress, you’re setting yourself up for success in the coming year. With realistic goals and a solid plan in place, this can be your best year ever!

Create A Vision Board

A vision board is an incredibly powerful tool to help bring your dreams to life. It’s a physical representation of all the goals you’re hoping to accomplish in the upcoming year so that you can stay inspired and motivated throughout the entire year.

To create your vision board, gather together photos, quotes, and other inspiring images that represent the goals and dreams you want to manifest in the next year. Place these items on a board or large sheet of paper and hang them somewhere you’ll see them daily. 

Be sure to include big and small goals on your vision board, and keep adding to it throughout the year. You can also add pictures of people or things that make you feel energized or inspired. Every time you see your vision board, it should give you a feeling of excitement and anticipation for the year ahead. 

Creating a vision board is a fun and creative way to set your intentions for the new year, but it should also be a practical tool. Try creating check-ins throughout the year to track your progress and celebrate your accomplishments. Also, be sure to review your vision board regularly and adjust it as needed.

Get An Accountability Partner

It can be difficult to stay on track and reach your goals without someone to hold you accountable. That’s why having an accountability partner is essential for achieving your goals this year. An accountability partner is someone who you can check in with regularly and provide support, motivation and encouragement.

Finding an accountability partner can be as easy as asking a friend, family member or colleague that you trust. You can also join an online community of like-minded people where you can share your progress and get feedback and advice. You could also hire a professional coach or mentor to help keep you on track and help you reach your goals.

Once you have found an accountability partner, set up a regular check-in schedule, whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. During the check-ins, discuss your progress, successes, challenges, and plans for the upcoming period. This will help keep you focused and motivated to reach your goals.

Remember, having an accountability partner is not about judgment or criticism, it’s about being able to turn to someone when you need help and support. This can make all the difference in achieving your goals and making this your best year ever!

Take Action Steps

One of the most important things you can do to make this your best year ever is to take action steps. 

Start by breaking down your larger goals into smaller, manageable steps. Write down each step and estimate how long it will take you to complete them. Prioritize your tasks and try to break them up into smaller tasks that can be completed in one day or even a few hours. Having a clear plan and timeline will help you stay on track and focused on your goals.

Remember, taking action does not have to be complicated. Even the smallest of actions can move you closer to achieving your goals. Don’t let perfectionism get in the way of taking action – focus on what you can do today, tomorrow, and each day thereafter. 

You are now ready to make this year your best year ever! Celebrate each small victory and don’t forget to reward yourself for all of the hard work you are putting in. Stay focused, stay positive, and take consistent action steps and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish this year.
