Millennial Tips: 7 insights to start your year right
We’ve just entered a brand new year in high spirits and are so ready to take it to unprecedented heights! And since we want just the same for you, we’ve compiled a few tips to give you some insight on how to start your year right.
Engage in a fruitful thinking process. Take some alone time in the beginning of the year to really think about what you’d like your year to be like, the areas you want to work on most and the specific goals you plan to accomplish. This will give you a sense of direction for what lies ahead.
Find a suitable way to track your progress. Once you’ve set the general direction, try to elaborate a convenient evaluation track. No need to go crazy here, it could be as simple as highlighting the tasks you’ve done out of a written list. It just works!
Brush off laziness with determination. Laziness is your biggest enemy at this point. Fight your urge to lazy out on important tasks on a day-by-day basis by meeting it right away with personal words of determination and encouragement.
Focus on yourself, yet be mindful of others too. Working on yourself and for yourself is essential, notably in the competitive age of social media and overachievement. But it is also important to build sustainable relationships with others and strive to positively influence/leave your mark on their lives.
Be mindful of your social media habits. Chronic scrolling may very well be THE disease of the Internet generation and you surely wouldn’t want to let it waste your precious time or hinder your potential/daily routine. Cut down on scrolling to keep your resolutions rolling!
Do not dwell on the past. We all look back on past things that happened in our lives with a critical eye from time to time. But repeated dwelling on history is little more than a terrible waste of irretrievable time that you could otherwise invest in actively shaping your future.
Expand your scale. It is good to know your strong points and limitations but this does not mean you should pass on opportunities that seem ‘too big’ or ‘unreachable’. Think long term, keep an open mind and take some risk by trying new things, exciting things, bigger things.
Wishing you a great start for 2018!
