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 unhealthy 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 aim for every space of my life by focusing in on one key phrase for every class. Easy – and hopefully efficient! Previously I’ve targeted on objectives which can be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this 12 months to attempt a extra broad method with objective.


Experiment. In 2023 I wish to concentrate on attempting new inventive endeavors. After operating Atlantic-Pacific for 13 years (occasions flies!!) I wish 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 objectives or hitting numbers for me this 12 months and extra about pushing myself creatively, be it creating new sorts of content material, or one thing fully totally different.


Consistency. That is the phrase I’ve chosen for my well being aim. I wish 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 objectives which can be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender method too rapidly.


Intentional. I must 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 may very well be used far more properly. This behavior is particularly unhealthy at evening after I may very well 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 evening and after I first get up every morning.


Provoke. My buddy posted this article yesterday in regards to the energy of an 8 minute telephone name and I beloved it. Generally all of us really feel too busy, too drained, too no matter, to succeed in out. My aim is to the touch base extra usually with mates 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 wish to have interaction much more in studying this 12 months. The previous two years I targeted on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 every year) and this 12 months I wish to concentrate on studying a model new talent, hopefully one thing that’s fully unrelated to my work. I’m spending this weekend sitting all the way down to slim down to 1 space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my listing however wish to simplify and concentrate on one. I additionally wish to take extra native courses which can be enjoyable however informative (I simply went to this cheese class – it was a beautiful evening out however I additionally walked away having discovered one thing new about cheese). Over time I’ve embraced that studying doesn’t essentially need to all the time be about deep, critical matters, however quite might be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
