The beginning of the brand new 12 months means it’s time to replicate on 2022 and take into consideration hopes for 2023. I’ve to confess, I’m fairly dangerous about this. Whereas the brand new 12 months invigorates so many, it tends to overwhelm me. This 12 months I’ve determined to heart on one purpose for every space of my life by focusing in on one key phrase for every class. Easy – and hopefully efficient! Previously I’ve centered on targets which can be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this 12 months to strive a extra broad method with objective.


Experiment. In 2023 I need to concentrate on attempting new artistic endeavors. After operating Atlantic-Pacific for 13 years (instances flies!!) I need to get outdoors my consolation zone with new mediums and never be afraid to wade into unchartered waters. It’s much less about setting monetary targets or hitting numbers for me this 12 months and extra about pushing myself creatively, be it creating new kinds of content material, or one thing utterly totally different.


Consistency. That is the phrase I’ve chosen for my well being purpose. I need to train 3 days per week. This previous 12 months I used to be both exercising on a regular basis for lengthy stretches or under no circumstances. 3 days is passable with out being unrealistic. I discover after I set targets which can be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender approach too shortly.


Intentional. I have to study to be extra intentional with time, particularly on the web. I discover myself mindlessly doom-scrolling and falling into black holes when my time could possibly be used rather more properly. This behavior is very dangerous at night time after I could possibly be studying or sleeping as a substitute of senseless clicking round on social media. I’m going to set extra boundaries about when I’m on my telephone, particularly at night time and after I first get up every morning.


Provoke. My pal posted this article yesterday concerning the energy of an 8 minute telephone name and I beloved it. Typically all of us really feel too busy, too drained, too no matter, to achieve out. My purpose is to the touch base extra typically with associates and to not watch for the moments after I can carve out an entire hour to speak. I can discover little moments every week to attach.


Curiosity. I need to have interaction much more in studying this 12 months. The previous two years I centered on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 annually) and this 12 months I need to concentrate on studying a model new talent, hopefully one thing that’s utterly unrelated to my work. I’m spending this weekend sitting all the way down to slender down to 1 space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my record however need to simplify and concentrate on one. I additionally need to take extra native courses which can be enjoyable however informative (I simply went to this cheese class – it was a stunning night time out however I additionally walked away having realized one thing new about cheese). Over time I’ve embraced that studying doesn’t essentially need to at all times be about deep, critical subjects, however moderately might be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
