Before the end of every year I do two things. I set my goals for the new year, and I also indulge in a serious wardrobe and beauty cabinet detox. There’s something about the start of a new chapter that pushes me to want to de-clutter and re-organise. Well last year, December to be precise, I did exactly that, I went through my hair care/beauty cabinet, and did my usual task of creating a ‘Yes’, ‘No’, and ‘Maybe’ pile, allowing my younger sisters to take their pick from the ‘Maybe’ pile, before giving it away to charity.
In the case of my wardrobe however, this didn’t quite go as planned! View Post
ARE YOU READY TO SMASH YOUR 2017 GOALS?
December 30th. Today marks the last Friday of 2016, and as I type this I’m surrounded by several sheets of paper, full of notes in preparation for the New Year.
I don’t know about you but the last 2-3 days of the year are extremely important for me, they are a time for me to reflect, be grateful for the year I’ve had, and most important of all, get my ish together, so I’m ready to step into the New Year with a bang!
One of the many ways I prepare for the New Year, is to take time out, sit myself down, and have a serious think about what I want to see happen in my life over the next 360+ days. I allow myself to daydream about ‘my perfect life/things I want to achieve'[15 – 30 minutes], and then I snap back to reality and begin to think about what it is I need to DO in order to achieve them [30 minutes – 1 hour]. Once this has been done, I put pen to paper and start with the real work… Setting my goals! [1 – 3 hours].
Here are the three most important steps of my goal setting process: View Post
A few weeks after quitting my job in Finance in 2015, I found myself stuck and confused about my next steps. My initial plan was to take a 2 month career break in order to really figure out what I wanted to do next, but this turned into a 6 month break which consisted of me coasting through life, hoping that my half-hearted business attempts would blossom into juicy cheques. I spent most of my time living vicariously through the lives of others on the likes of Instagram, dreaming up business ideas, but not lifting a finger towards making them happen.
