Let’s talk about ways that can make your life better. The spooky season has arrived – but Halloween will be over in the blink of an eye. Before we know it we’ll be eating Thanksgiving turkey, then putting up our Christmas tree. How about some thought about ‘you’? Goals and dreams?
This time of year always seems to fly by, and before we know it we’ll be writing up our new year’s resolutions, with the aim to make 2020 the best it can be.
We only get one life so it’s important to live it well, making goals for the year are useful as they help to keep us on track. They highlight areas of our lives that we know need more work, and give us motivation to tackle the things that we still haven’t done.
The problem with many new year’s resolutions is that we think about them right at the last minute and dive into them with no real thought or planning which is what can cause them to fail. If you start thinking about them now, you can get in the right frame of mind and also put in any prep work needed to set yourself up for success. Here are some ideas.
Move Forward In Your Career
Our jobs are a huge part of our lives.
Most of us wouldn’t choose to work if we didn’t have to, but we all need to provide for ourselves and so if we have to work, it makes sense for it to be something we find interesting or rewarding in some way. If you’re stuck in a dead end job you could go back into education to open the door to better careers.
If you’re looking to move up and get promoted, you could take on some further training. For example, if you work in healthcare then phlebotomy training would give you the ability to work in a higher up and better paid position. Have a serious think about where you want to be in your career, and where you are currently.
What can you do to take that next step?
Since many universities and colleges have January starting dates, looking into this now and making the relevant plans could be useful. If you want to take on some training or networking days in the new year, you can research and find out now what the dates are and get them booked into your calendar for the new year.
Take Up A New Hobby
Hobbies are one of the best ways to build your skills, as they’re genuinely fun and enjoyable so it doesn’t just feel like a learning experience. For sure it will help to make your life better. If you feel as though you’re stuck in a ‘work, eat, sleep, repeat’ cycle then hobbies can help to break this, and give you something productive to do during your time off.
You’ll meet new people, push yourself out of your comfort zone and build your skills in a fun way. Give it some thought about the hobbies you enjoy and find out if there are any groups or classes that are held locally that you could join ready for the new year.
Travel is never a waste of time or money.
And if there’s one sure way to make your year more memorable and enjoyable it’s travelling more. When you’re booking your holiday days from work next year, aim to use as many of them as possible exploring new places. Be sure to research the dates, things like school holidays for example will be busier and more expensive so if you’re on a budget, book your holidays at cheaper times.
I hope these simple and ‘doable’ ideas will indeed help to make your life better for 2020! Much success.
