The New Year came with all its excitements…. Everyone, most people were delighted to see the New Year mostly because they needed to forget the past and move ahead, they needed to set new goals, or set up new businesses or something that has to do with New! Basically, from it all I perceive Hope; whether from a good or bad experience everyone wants something to hope on! Those with old debts will claim that it’s a New Year so it should be forgotten 😕 really?
I remember December 2015, I had just received a great news, one that led to success and in between the joy I felt clueless! Like I’ve been looking forward to this news for three years now and it finally came but I was clueless. Strange but I couldn’t tell why. I asked could it be due to the long wait, hmm?
So this didn’t even give me the strength to write any resolution or goals, majorly because I was frightened and filled with uncertainties. So when others put up their goals for 2016 I’d just turn the other cheek!
Fast forward to December 2016; I’d so it’s been amazing! I didn’t strategically write down goals for 2016 but I sure did achieve a lot! I started writing my quotes and blogging again!
Don’t get me wrong, writing down your goals is great but falling apart because you didn’t achieve them is what I don’t agree with! Truth is as I advanced into the year 2016, the goals started coming it! I’m someone who believes in planning, being spontaneous is like a disease for me, so when I say I was totally clueless, I was. And it hurt so much that I couldn’t even help myself plan for the New Year…
Goals help us keep in shape, it’s like a checklist. So it’s okay if you didn’t achieve all your goals in 2016, I didn’t even have one! Well it’s a new season and you can pick up form where you stopped. You don’t have to necessarily dump the old goals and set new ones, chances are the events that occurred or led to you not achieving them might occur again. So you need to deal with that first and continue!
There would be a lot of pressure, from concerned and non concerned friends or family; even from within you! It would seem as though “your mates” are far ahead but stop!
And don’t let the pressure weigh you down. The most important thing is where ever you are or at whatever stage you find yourself, you’re making positive progress.
This year, I have a list of things I aim to achieve ( I’d be sharing my journey through them all). Even if it means my attempting each one to a certain stage before the year runs out, I’d be entirely grateful to God! My key this year is consistence and continuity, diligence and efficiency.
How did your 2016 go? Did you achieve your goals? Kindly share tips on how you did it!
