Happy New Year’s Eve!!
Whether you are celebrating at a party or curled up at home with a blanket, we both want you to step into 2020 with a smile and some confidence. We are so excited to ring in the New Year with you, and we wanted to give you some tips for your planning sesh coming up.
There is a difference between goal setting and wishing, and many people get confused about this and set themselves up to fail before the year has even begun. If you are goal setting, you are going to want to pick 1-3 items that you are planning and focusing on. If you are wish setting, the list goes on and on, and can start to overwhelm yourself.
We LOVE wishes. You should definitely have lots of wishes in your life. We aren’t telling you to stop wishing. We are however, telling you that trying to focus on 30 things at the same time will leave you running around in circles feeling tired without much progress towards success. There is a difference when you cross over into goal planning from wishing.
The main difference between wishes and goals are: Effort, Time & Priority.
Let’s just say that there are 30 things you need to change about yourself on your list. In order to experience the success and the results you desire, you will have to make EVERY choice through the lens of your priority.
It is hard to determine what the priority and focus is when your list is 30 items long. You want to take a look over your list and choose 1-3 items to work on first… these are your goals.
If you are living a life full of happiness, you really only have time for 1-3 goals at a time. We want you to create a life worth living rather than a life full of to-do lists and waiting.
It doesn’t feel good to need to change everything in order to be happy. Perfection isn’t real and will never happen. It is a fake place that will hold you from experiencing happiness.
So what is the one thing that you are ready to place as priority and put effort and time into? This is your goal.
We should look at goals like we do our friends. Friends require effort, time, and priority. You can’t have 45 best friends, but you CAN have 45 acquaintances. Your wishes represent your acquaintances. Your goals represent your best friends.
“You should think of goals like your bff, you really only have time to prioritize 1-3 at a time.”
What are your top goals you are focusing on this next year?
