As we approach the end of the year, I want to take a moment to thank you for your patronage, reflect on 2020, and look ahead to 2021. This is the best time to review how the year went.
Self-reflecting is one of the best ways to maximize our learning, discover how we do our best work and improve our performance.
2020 will be unforgettable in many ways, yet I am sure we all would prefer to forget it.
I have come up with a plan on what and how I want to improve in the new year. I have broken my personal goals into 4 categories.
There are resolutions you hear every year, usually those resolutions involve something along the lines of saving money or getting healthier. Anything you make is going to boil down to the same thing – Better yourself.
Don’t be like this when you’re making your new year resolution…
My goal in 2019 is to achieve the goals I set in 2018 that I should have completed in 2017 as I made a promise in 2016 that I planned in 2015.
Now is a great time to identify new and existing opportunities to grow and get 2020 off to a strong start. For 2020, I have set some achievable goals for myself. Accomplishing these goals will bring myself professional joy and positive growth.
1. Make an Impressive Impact at Work
Being more productive often stands at the top priority list but actually finding the ways to implement it in everyday life is a different kettle of fish. However, I will try to be proactive about going after what I want and doing things without being asked. I will also make it a priority to work on my productivity by using a time diary to become more aware of how I’m spending my time now. Being more focused is also important as it can take an average of 25 minutes to resume a task after being interrupted.
My strategy focus is to:
UNDERSTAND where am I now.
IMAGINE where I could be.
CREATE my strategic move.
Dare to be different. Don’t settle for the ordinary.
My New Year’s Resolutions are yearly goals that I set for myself at the beginning of a new year. They usually have to do with fitness, investment, skills upgrading, and so forth.
My Plan for 2017
Traveling is refreshing and rejuvenating. Spending holiday on your local trip might achieve the same result. However, traveling overseas helps you to escape the routine of your life, which leaves you with no other choice than to forget the stresses of home.
I noticed that traveling is something that I’m passionate about and I wanted more of it in my life. I made goals for 2017 to travel more, to gain new experiences and seek out any opportunity I could possibly find.
I love seeing the world to experience different cultures. The places that I will travel next year are.
1. Siem Reap, Cambodia (that one I’ll be ticking off in January),
2. Hangzhou, China
3. Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
As always in December, I like to set aside some time to reflect on the past year and set goals & resolutions for a new year. 2016 was a great year, both at work and in my personal life and I think I have reached a very good work-life balance. I’m confident 2017 will be just as good, if not even better.
This year was an eventful year, and also one that marked a turning point for my personal growth. I’m going to share what had achieved well this year in various aspects.
Finance: As I mentioned in the past, this is the first year for me to build and achieve double digit annual income growth starting from year 2020 onwards. I’m quite satisfied with how I did so far and will be able to keep my cash flow positive every month and currently still on track to achieve it. I have also invested in global stock market to achieve more balanced and diversified investment portfolio.
Below are some of the results achieved so far.
The end of a year is the best time for us to flash back what we had done and what we should do next. It’s good to start fresh and get your life moving in the direction you really want. It doesn’t matter how much money you have or make, by opening more possibilities via goal setting, you will start living the life that you want.
