It’s hard to believe 2021 is already here. 2020 has definitely been an extremely challenging year full of change and uncertainty. As we are all aware, the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve further and we are still dealing with a massive global challenge as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to escalate globally impacting how we all operate and manage our businesses and lives day to day.
In addition to the immediate and serious health concerns, we are also seeing a much wider impact on all of our lives as well as the global economy as a whole. Understandably, there is a considerable sense of unease all over the world.
So how do you plan to welcome the year ahead?
New Year, like the sun, is almost shining its rays on us. A couple of days from now, we will be celebrating the coming of new hope, a new inspiration, and a continuing triumph against the challenges in life. It is a display of loud and colourful fireworks thrown into the vast sky, a grateful celebration of the year we bid goodbye to, and a hopeful invitation to a new slate in our life. But what does it really mean to you?
Every year, we are faced with heightened anticipation as we lay out our goals and plans for the year ahead. We think of it religiously in the promise of daily opportunities and 365 days of chances. The more it draws itself to us, the brighter we see ourselves in its glorifying blessings and exciting beginnings. We look forward and bombard the first midnight with endless wants and wishes that we sometimes tend to forget the sturdy platform where these plans of ours stand –our inner self. So how do we work on ourselves to be able to successfully map out an organised 2021 despite the pandemic looming over our very heads?
Leave Unnecessary Things
Needless to say, de-cluttering may be one of the most neglected words we have but this year, be the difference that you desire and start by offloading stuff that you don’t actually need. This goes beyond tangible things since often, your negative emotions like anger and grudges take over your life. Release the bad vibes in your life and carve a path for a peaceful surrounding and stress-free day to day living.
Prioritise Big Things and Lift Your Littlest Ambitions
Maneuver every now and then to reckon if you’re doing the right thing at the right time. Are you caught up between the rocks of your short term goals and long term aspirations? Visualise yourself and maximise time by weeding off your life-destroyers and pick up the points that strongly contribute to your self-effectiveness and spectacular rewards.
Make Friends With Your Calendar
Mark important dates such as school and business appointments and devote a time that is solely assigned for you to face your to-do lists and accomplish those set-off goals.
Start a Healthy Financial Management Strategy
Know all your finances by heart and arm yourself with strong self-discipline and a realistic budget. File your bills accordingly and limit your credit card expenses.
The way to an organised year entails hard work and conviction. There will be days when following all your set life draft may seem impossible and this is where staying focused on your vision comes in. Your self-productivity and time management play a lead role in keeping you present and motivated.
The countdown for New Year begins with you. It’s a blank space waiting for you to take as you shape your destiny so take it, draw your vision of life, write your big dreams in it and get up to steal them. 2021 is here, embrace it!
