Staying on Track with Your Resolutions


Most of life is showing up. You do the best you can, which varies from day to day.
Regina Brett


Oh, dear!  It seems like a few people are already having problems keeping those New Year Resolutions and goals that they have set themselves for 2014.  The biggest problem for some of the people I have spoken with is remembering all the things they said they want to achieve in the next 12 months.

My trick is to set up a vision board for the year.  I have collated images and text into Keynote to create one image which is now my laptop wallpaper (above).  Detailed actions are kept in Wunderlist, but the image constantly reminds me of all I want to do in 2014.  With one or two bits 'censored' for confidentiality, I am happy to share it if it might help you to create your own way of keeping on track.  Depending on how you best take in information, you might use a vision board, graphs, an app, a daily recorded message ... Find out what works for you.

So what does my vision board mean?  

Working from the top and going clockwise, the context for my year is Foundation.  My business is now 5 years old and passed its' early set up stage.  This year, I will develop it further and create the rock steady foundation for the next 20 years.  Increasing my income by 25% will be one measure of that.

I want to meet more people face to face at events (please feel free to invite me to your private views/arts events!) to share ideas, learn, make connections, develop collaborations and simply to thrive on creativity.  

I have two particular clients (Project A and Project B) with whom I would really like to work again this year.

I love reading, learning and discovering new ideas, and will create the time and space to read lots more inspiring books, alongside all the usual blogs and articles.

The calendar pages remind me that I have some numerical goals I want to reach by the last quarter of the year.  

Back at the top, I am developing more talks to deliver throughout the year.

And finally, right in the middle of all this is me, as digitally painted by the amazing artist, Taragh Bissett.  Taragh presented this portrait to me as my Christmas gift and it is the first image of myself I have ever liked.  It is there to remind me that for all the other things to come to fruition, the most important thing is that I have to show up and make them happen.
