2015 is now a seemingly distant past. I started the year off with celebrating the New Year with my family and witnessing my best friends’ special occasion in the Philippines. Then, I saw and listened to a talk given by a French model. Traveled down south to New Orleans. Accepted a second professional speaking engagement. Visited 3 New England states. Learned a lot from personal and professional mistakes made throughout the year.
In 2015, I made 3 goals for myself and my overall rating on what I accomplished for each one:
- Simplify = 70%
- Career Development = 80%
- Fitness = 5%
In this post, I never really explained what action plans I needed to do for each goal. It was never laid out anywhere. All I knew was that I needed to simplify, further develop my career, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I knew what the goals were, but my action plans were, to put it simply, all over the place. I suffered a lot of analysis paralysis throughout the year and I read more inspirational articles, but never quite put anything into concrete actions.
This year, I hope to change this. This year, I’m simplifying by focusing on one word. The inspiration came from an article I read on Levo League and I thought this was as simple as a goal should get.
2016 is a big milestone year for me because I turn 30 this year. So for such a big milestone, I choose to focus on the word CREATE.
- CREATE more opportunities for myself.
- Try out new recipes at home.
- Go back into photography.
- Build my own website from scratch.
- Continue to build a personal brand.
- Write on the blog.
- Contribute articles to blogs I follow, like The Everygirl.
- Make the time to do yoga or kickboxing.
I could probably go on until I reach 30.. but I think you get my drift.
Happy New Year everyone and may this year bring you more blessings than any of the previous years before it.
