Well, 2021 is here. Are we happy because its a New Year or are we happy because 2020 is gone?
2020 was quite a year, wasn't it? Biggest issue was the Pandemic. That issue changed everything and had an affect on every single person, like it or not. Businesses were closed, people worked from home or lost jobs, masks were worn, schools closed etc. etc.
The changes disrupted everyone's way of life, and changed their routines. With the start of 2021 it gives us a new sense of hope. Hope that things get better and everything goes back to "normal". Let's take this time to make new promises, have a renewed outlook on life, and set new goals.
Starting a business with my brother is my 2021 goal. Well, sort of. We officially registered the business in December of 2020, but 2021 is the year that I get to work on it. I have business goals as well as personal goals for 2021.
My business goals are many, but in a broad sense I want to make it self sustaining and eventually profitable. Ultimately very profitable! Personally, I have goals such as finishing my Bachelors degree, living healthier and planning toward retirement. The degree is just a life goal, no immediate need for it. The degree also will give me options upon retirement from my current career. Retirement is still a few years away, but in sight.
I believe that going through life without a plan is a bad was to live. Not saying that plan has to be written in stone. Plans change, but a plan is a road map. Without a map you will get lost. Plans change, but having a plan will always provide one with a sense of direction.
What is your plan? Do you have one? If not, take this renewed sense of the New Year and make a plan, set goals and give yourself a sense of direction.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
