In November I wrote, “how to plan your year” (with a freebie I made for you!), where I focused more on the mindset side of starting a new year.
In today’s article, instead, I’ll focus more on actionable tips. This way, by following the tips I shared in both the articles, you’ll be able to plan 2021 and change your life!
So, let’s go!
A new habit
I’m not talking about resolutions, things we’re going to give up in a month or so, I think we should take it slow this year. 2020 has thought us not to
Let’s start by choosing a new habit, something that is going to make us feel good.
It could be reading one chapter a day, stretching every morning, or drink a cup of tea every evening.
Create a vision board
Expect a guide from me about how to make a vision board, but for now, here are my tips.
Write down all the things you want to manifest during 2021, how you want to feel, look, where you want to go etc… Then, go to Pinterest and create a board with all the images that reflect what you wrote and make it into a collage with Canva and then use it as your PC or phone wallpaper to look at everyday!
Set your goals
“The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” Bill Copeland
Plan the 1st quarter of the year
Once you have your goals, assign 1-3 to each month of the first quarter.
If you have subtasks, make sure to set a due date for those on your calendar.
If you feel overwhelmed, stick to one goal per month. Take it easy, you deserve it!
In case your goals are habits, I suggest you track them daily or weekly.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE time blocking and you should try it too if you don’t already!
Pick your fav calendar, paper or digital (I recommend using Google Calendar because it syncs everywhere!), start adding all the recurring events (work, school, etc…), and then add your fun activities (a Saturday night dinner with your loved one, for eg.).
Make sure to add as many things as possible, and if you want to go the extra mile, start time blocking your weeks by adding e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g you want to do every day!
I hope you have an amazing, successful, and fulfilling 2021, see you next Saturday!
