Happy New Year, everyone! I am greatly looking forward to what the next 365 days will bring, and I hope you are too. This is the time for us to think about the year ahead, and how to choose achievable goals. If we want happiness and fulfillment to happen, we have to shape our own futures through hard work, concentrating on what is important to each of us so we can succeed.
One of the smartest things Becca and I started doing a few years ago was to create and follow a yearly business plan. We call it our “Plan on a Page” and keep it on the wall so we can reference it as needed while we work. Our plan isn’t complicated or difficult to follow…it simply outlines the major goals we want to accomplish for the year, areas of growth to focus on, and approximate deadlines (if they apply). This ensures that each and every day, we are working toward our goals, rather than getting sidetracked by other projects.
Think about making a plan yourselves this year! First, take some time for reflection. Then, if you like, here’s a link to the template Becca and I use, and some steps showing how to create a plan for yourself.
Before we go, a small shout out to Emotion Amplifiers, which is an ebook companion to The Emotion Thesaurus. Not everyone knows about this little ebooklet we put together, and it packs a nice punch when you’re looking to add some tension depth to a scene, or you want to heighten emotion even further. We hope it helps!
