The time is finally here! It’s time to get into our Goal Setting Series for next year! This week, I’ll be sharing my goal setting strategy for 2018.
Once October hits, usually around the 15th, I start thinking about the following year. What am I going to do next year? What do I want to accomplish next year? But most importantly, What do I want out of life in general?
There are 2 main reasons why I wanted to be an entrepreneur, financial freedom and independence to set my own goals personally and professionally. What I didn’t know when I started was that the lines of professional and personal blur when you own a small business. It blurred in a way that I am so happy about.
These few months leading into 2018 has been a real time of reflection for me. I asked myself what I want out of my professional life as well as my personal life. Since my mom passed away, the way I looked at life changed. I wanted to focus on what was important, stop engaging with toxic people that would only transfer negative energy, and not waste my time with things that I couldn’t change. Life is too short, anything could happen. I want to live every moment, be present, and experience as much as I can. I realized my life’s purpose is to leave a positive mark on this world in a loving and gracious way – no matter how small. I want to make an impact by helping other people. This realization made me think about what I want for next year. The image above is what I want for myself next year. From here, I can start setting real and tangible goals for 2018.
