I go back and forth as to how I feel about New Year’s resolutions, and because of that I’m not very consistent year to year in creating any. But frankly, I don’t need the new year to set goals for myself. Have you read my blog lately? It seems I always have a challenge or a goal in the works…diet, running, reading, 30 before 30 and more.
A friend of mine is writing a mantra for the year; something that he can repeat to stay focused on who he wants to be and what he wants to accomplish. I think it’s a great idea, and admirable, but I struggle to consolidate my thoughts into a single blog post, let alone a mantra for the entire year. But a variation of this could work quite well for me.
For 2013, I am going to focus on 5 priorities, each with its own mantra. I will try my best to focus my time, my goals and my frame of mind to support one of these priorities and I will revisit each mantra regularly to remind myself of my direction for the year.
Do you have a personal mantra or a set of priorities that you revisit each year?
