Out with the Old, In With the New
On the eve of the arrival of 2019, many take this time to reflect on what has happened in the past year, as well as what changes to make in the next.
For me, 2018 brought with it both good and bad things.
Good: I'm a Breast Cancer Survivor
Bad: Health setbacks due to Nerlynx medication
Good: Paid off two credit cards, as well as one car loan
Good: Was able to afford a new Snow Blower as well as the lawn tractor hubby wanted
Good: Cleared out the closet of old clothes that are worn or just don't fit anymore
Good: Improved diet, and portion control for weight loss, as well as physical and mental healing from Cancer treatment
Looking forward to 2019, better health and weight loss are some of the most common new year's resolutions, but few actually stick with them beyond the first few months.
I personally have never been one to make resolutions, per se. For years, I tended to just "go with the flow", but battling the life threatening illness that is cancer, caused me to change my focus.
In 2019, I will not be setting resolutions for myself, but instead, I will be doing the following:
- Focusing on things that allow me to spend more time with those who matter most, my husband and family.
- Clearing my home of clutter. This has always been a constant struggle of mine. Getting sucked into "fast cash" projects instead of residual income. Need to focus on projects that allow me to work smarter, not harder.
- Continue to make progress on paying off our debt
- Maintaining healthy nutrition, including weight loss, physical and mental healing, and improving my energy while helping others to do the same
- Build out successful residual income streams, one at a time, while avoiding shiny object syndrome.
Over the past few weeks, I actually took a hiatus from all my business related endeavors as a means to give myself a break both physically and mentally, so I could better re-focus on the things that are truly important. That break, allowed me to visualize what I want out of 2019, with the most important part being to work smarter and not harder.
Now that you know my goals, what are yours for the incoming 2019 year?
