Hi guys! Before posting this, I actually prepared a much longer post about this year’s new year’s resolution and how I’m going to achieve them. But half way through writing it, I decided to abandon it. Reason being, complication has got on to me, and it’s not helping me with productivity. In fact, it’s slowing me down significantly from producing one post a week to just one a month, or less! After doing some self questioning, I realised all I really want this year is to keep goals and resolutions simple so I can actually focus on achieving them.
So I’ve rationalised my 2018 new year’s resolution to just 2 things:
- Write something everyday, and have 30 posts by the end of year
- Draw something everyday, and have 30 drawings by end of year.
Life is already loaded on a daily basis for me, with a full time job and 2 young kids to look after. Whilst I still want to push myself to do something extra, I want to make sure these goals are reachable by means of my current life situation.
Sometimes life is about making choices for the sake of given responsibilities. It might take me longer to achieve something others have achieved in a much shorter time, but I’m confident that as long as I keep doing something about it each day, I will get there eventually.
I know this is a short post and isn’t overly informative, but I just want to share what’s planned ahead for me this year. And I’d love to hear what your new year’s resolutions are? How are you keeping track so far? Please let me know in the comments, I’d love to be inspired!
