Happy New Year! It's hard to believe we are already one week into 2022. This is the time of year where we typically set goals, self-reflect, make resolutions, and adopt new habits. Just know that achieving your goals is a journey. There will be successes and failures, but when you have useful tools at your fingertips, you are on the right path.
I believe a long-term goal should motivate you and make you excited enough to work towards it consistently. This doesn't mean you work on your goals 24/7. It means that while you're working on your goals, you also find time for life's other pleasures, such as self-care and personal relationships. For me, that's important as well, but it's balanced by a desire to make my business work with and not at the expense of everything else in my life.
Be intentional with your process and use your planner regularly. Skills like discipline, consistency, and will power are traits that can expand with practice. The important thing is to come back and re-center on what's essential and never give up.
