A new year is a great time to self-reflect and create positive new habits--both personally and at work. Even minor changes in your daily routine can revitalize your performance and satisfaction on the job.
When making New Year's resolutions related to any facet of life, remember to set achievable target marks according to your lifestyle and start small even if your end goal is big. Our brains and bodies need time to adjust to new practices. Give yourself the grace of laying the groundwork for success.
It is also helpful to craft a specific plan of action and make your goals measurable. These tactics establish accountability and tangibility, ultimately making the outcomes realer and more achievable as you meet and pass each milestone.
Last but not least, do your best to focus on the positive. Change and growth can be difficult in the moment, and it is completely natural to feel some sense of unease when embarking on a journey of self-improvement. Take it piece by piece and remember that the discomfort is temporary--and you'll be stronger, wiser, and better off overall once you've met your goals.
We learned a lot last year, and spent some time making our own goals to make 2023 even more impactful than last year! I’m looking forward to continuing to talking to you all year: through this newsletter, on the phone, email or in person.
