Know Your Goals
Know what you want. If you’re planning on going travelling at some point during the year, make sure you take the right precautions. Get your vaccines, be careful with family planning or you may end up seeking Emergency Contraception Pills.
Be bang on with your budget. But, you also need to be super realistic. If you’re planning a huge round trip and haven’t started saving yet, the likelihood is you won’t by be able to afford it by the time you want to go, so think about delaying a year.
You need to know your new year goals in order to succeed. You need to know them so that you don’t lose site of what you want to achieve. Certain goals aren’t necessarily compatible with one another so, it’s time to work out what you really want in 2021 and beyond.
Its not uncommon for people to gain a few pounds over Christmas. But if you’re wanting to get into top shape next year, give yourself a running start over the festive season. Usually people will put on bit of weight and then shift that weight before settling back into their usual routine in the new year.
Now we are not saying you have to diet at Christmas, but if you just manage to stay slightly active, more so than usual, then you won’t put on as much weight. Think around ten thousand steps a day. Target some kind of activity to make those new years fitness goals a lot easier to come true.
Wanting to get stuck into a new hobby in the new year? Why not ask your nearest and dearest for gifts related to your new hobby for Christmas. This will help to keep things a little cheaper for you in the new year.
Perhaps you want to get into gaming, ask for gaming related gifts. Or maybe running? Some new trainers and sports gear perhaps. Whatever you decide, its a great way to give yourself a kickstart and achieve your new year goals.
If you’re looking to plan a business, or some sort of side venture, you might be surprised by how cheaply this can be done. However, looking ahead it might be the right time to get a plan in place.
Whether selling on Amazon or looking at going into a traditional bricks and mortar business. Perhaps you’re even wanting to become a tradesperson. Either way, you’ll need a business plan and the sooner you manage to get one together the sooner you’ll know how to attack it.
It doesn’t even have to be anything major like a financial plan because that can come later. Just gather your thoughts in one plane and think about how you can get started.
Wishing you all a very happy new year, and best of luck with establishing your new year goals. If you already have some goals in mind, we would love to hear about them below. Best wishes and keep safe – see you in 2021!
