Navigating the New Year - Planning for 2024

Navigating the New Year - Planning for 2024

If you’ve been stressed about not having your 2024 goals neatly laid out, take a deep breath – you’re not alone. Whether you’re taking a pause before planning the new year, or you simply haven’t found the time to sit down and figure it out, it’s important to know that planning your dream life and creating your goals is unique to you, and doesn’t have to adhere to any specific timeline ✨

Reminder 💌 - The process of setting goals and plans should not be rushed! You need to fully think through creating and planning your dream life, be thorough and take your time. Remember that it is more than ticking checkboxes – it’s about crafting small steps and habits that align with your aspirations and values. Sometimes, you might need to experience self-growth and development before setting your goals. Not everyone knows what they want and that’s perfectly okay! So, focus on self-growth and discover yourself before planning out the things you want to achieve.

If you’re ready, here’s our guide to planning for the new year!

Create a Vision Board

Close your eyes and visualise. What do you want your year to look like? Maybe you have a few goals in mind, or a word that embodies your vision. Be creative! Express what you want for the year with pictures, words, and even drawings! You can make your vision board physically or digitally.

Set Goals

Creating a vision and aligning it with well-defined goals is one of the best ways to achieve your dream life. Many individuals never get what they desire because they’re unsure of what they really want. Establishing clear goals and a crystal vision will act as a guide, leading you to actionable steps toward your dream life. 

Reflect on what you aim to achieve within the upcoming year, in five years, and in a decade, then structure your goals around tangible steps that will help you progress to whatever you want to accomplish.

Reminder 💌 - Remember to focus on what it is that you really want, not what others expect from you. 

When setting goals, be realistic and honest with yourself. Achieving your goals is a reflection of the effort and your willingness to push boundaries, showcasing your commitment to doing whatever it takes to make your dream life a reality.

If you find yourself uncertain about your goals for the upcoming year or simply seeking a moment of reflection, turning to journaling can be a valuable practice. Journaling can help you identify important learning events, your source of inspiration and provide you with a better understanding of your thought process.

Journal Prompts: 

  • What was my most significant achievement in 2023?
  • What was the biggest challenge I faced in 2023?
  • What lessons or skills did I learn?
  • How would I describe myself a year ago?
  • How would I describe myself now?
  • How would I describe myself in a year? 
  • What does my ideal life look like?  
  • 3 things I’m grateful for

Reminder 💌 - Don’t be afraid to dream BIG and focus on the things that YOU want!
