Happy 2017! Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I did! I'm a big believer that if you don't design your life, it will be designed for you (by someone else who is taking the time to design theirs). And personally, I want to live MY dream, not someone else's XD.
Using Lara Casey's (sold-out!) PowerSheets Make It Happen planner as my guide, I spent some time over the holidays thinking about what I value, what I fear, what's holding me back, what inspires me, and where I want to take this year.
This planner is all about cultivating what matters, so you have to dig deep. I found that at my core, I believe in hard work, kindness, giving back, perseverance, doing what you love, following your dreams and then enjoying it!!
With these ideals in mind, I created these goals for 2017:
Tighten up finances, invest! invest!
Foster my spiritual relationships
Plan more time off
Create a more focused business plan for MANMAN
Learn a new creative skill
Invest in a hands-on hobby
Volunteer outside of design and photography (do something physical!)
Develop better fitness and healthy eating habits (isn't that on EVERYONE'S New Year's goals EVERY year?!! prob XD)
What do you think about my New Year's goals? Do you have any ideas for a hands-on hobby or new creative skill I could try? I'd love to hear your ideas...and your goals or resolutions for the year too!
Here's to a great year in 2017!
P.S. I know the planner is sold out this year :( buuuuut go get on the list for next year now! (I think they might be coming out with something in the spring too.) It's beautifully designed and super-high quality (essential for any designer), filled with simple delights like encouraging quotes and notecards you can decorate your office with. It also makes it really easy to figure out meaningful goals for your year with a step-by-step guide to simplify your life. Seriously, so great!
