03 Jan Before You Go Back to Work
Back to Work
Now that the new year has begun, it’s time to go back to work.
Of course, before you rush off, you might want to have a map.
Or, in other terms, you might want to plan how you will live in the coming year.
Otherwise you could end up in the wrong tree. While birds can simply fly to another tree, humans find this wastes their time.
So take a moment to write:
1) What you want to do with the year (your intentions).
This could be a list of results. Such as what you want to accomplish, want to have, or want to be. And it’s okay to dream a bit because most achievements begin as dreams.
2) What you could do to achieve these intentions (your plans and goals).
Note that plans are actions that you take to make progress (or overcome obstacles) between what you have and what you want.
And goals are specific, realistic, measurable targets for your actions. For example, you might set a goal to visit a local park twice each week.
Notice that such a goal describes an action that you control, instead of a result that depends upon others.
Then, once you finish writing your plan, decide to review (and revise) it at least once each month.
And now you’re ready to go back to work.
PS I posted upcoming talks on the Home Page for my web site. See: Birds by Steve for more info.
Help Birds Tip
Use Less Gas
Do you know that most people waste at least a gallon or two of gas each week? It’s easy because this waste becomes lost in buying more gas.
But this waste can cost $150 to $300 per year.
Here are simple, easy tips on how to save gas. See: 10 Easy Ways to Save Money on Gas.
Benefit: Using less gas will leave more money to spend on things that matter.
