The beginning of the brand new yr means it’s time to mirror on 2022 and take into consideration hopes for 2023. I’ve to confess, I’m fairly unhealthy about this. Whereas the brand new yr invigorates so many, it tends to overwhelm me. This yr I’ve determined to middle on one aim for every space of my life by focusing in on one key phrase for every class. Easy – and hopefully efficient! Prior to now I’ve targeted on targets which might be SMART (particular, measurable, achievable, related, and time-bound), however determined this yr to strive a extra broad method with objective.


Experiment. In 2023 I wish to deal with attempting new artistic endeavors. After operating Atlantic-Pacific for 13 years (instances flies!!) I wish to get outdoors my consolation zone with new mediums and never be afraid to wade into unchartered waters. It’s much less about setting monetary targets or hitting numbers for me this yr and extra about pushing myself creatively, be it creating new varieties of content material, or one thing utterly completely different.


Consistency. That is the phrase I’ve chosen for my well being aim. I wish to train 3 days per week. This previous yr I used to be both exercising on a regular basis for lengthy stretches or by no means. 3 days is passable with out being unrealistic. I discover after I set targets which might be too lofty I’m simply discouraged and have a tendency to surrender approach too shortly.


Intentional. I must study to be extra intentional with time, particularly on the web. I discover myself mindlessly doom-scrolling and falling into black holes when my time might be used way more correctly. This behavior is very unhealthy at evening after I might be studying or sleeping as a substitute of senseless clicking round on social media. I’m going to set extra boundaries about when I’m on my cellphone, particularly at evening and after I first get up every morning.


Provoke. My good friend posted this article yesterday in regards to the energy of an 8 minute cellphone name and I liked it. Typically all of us really feel too busy, too drained, too no matter, to succeed in out. My aim is to the touch base extra usually with mates and to not watch for the moments after I can carve out a complete hour to speak. I can discover little moments every week to attach.


Curiosity. I wish to have interaction much more in studying this yr. The previous two years I targeted on getting again into studying (I went from studying zero books to studying over 25 every year) and this yr I wish to deal with studying a model new talent, hopefully one thing that’s utterly unrelated to my work. I’m spending this weekend sitting all the way down to slim down to 1 space – as I’ve a handful of concepts on my checklist however wish to simplify and deal with one. I additionally wish to take extra native lessons which might be enjoyable however informative (I simply went to this cheese class – it was a stunning evening out however I additionally walked away having realized one thing new about cheese). Through the years I’ve embraced that studying doesn’t essentially must all the time be about deep, critical matters, however relatively could be extra lighthearted in nature, whereas nonetheless increasing the thoughts.
