I wrote at least four pages of things I would like to achieve next year, and then I tried to condense them and make them cute for you. I am not for completely changing who you are in the new year – if you can’t do it now, you can’t do it then. But gathering your thoughts and putting together what you hope to achieve in 366 days is perfectly reasonable. I find it hard to share this stuff because being open about my goals makes it a little more embarrassing if I don’t achieve them, but one of my aims is to be more honest. So here I am being honest. There are a hundred more things I would like to work on in myself and a bunch of more specific ways I plan to reach these goals, but I think the primary thing is to remember the things I am always reaching for no matter what. Things like: my journalism career, a book, owning a home, travelling everywhere, working abroad. Everything I achieve, ever, will lend towards me getting those things done.
What are you planning for next year?
