2020 was a tough year for many. Let’s hope for better days in 2021! Despite it being a rough year, I still want to stick to the tradition of filling out my New Years Worksheet which I also made available to you as a free printable below.
Each New Years Eve I like to think about the entire year that is about to end and list 10 of my top favorite moments or experiences.
Next, I like to list at least 2 different lessons I learned that year.
Finally, I list 5 things I am currently most grateful for.
I have found that by focusing on the good and the lessons I have learned I feel gratitude for each and every year.
Even if it was a very difficult year overall, writing down my favorite experiences and the lessons I have learned makes me realize that there was still plenty of good and productive moments I had.
Every time I do this, I end up feeling grateful for the year that is about to end.
Next, I like to set goals for the coming year.
In order to try to stay balanced in life, I make at least one long-term goal and one short-term goal in each of the following categories:
A long-term goal would be something that would take many months or the entire year to accomplish.
A short term goal should only take weeks to maybe two months maximum to accomplish.
I try not to add more than one long term goal and one short term goal in each category at a time for the coming year.
If I really want more than one long term or short term goal in one of the categories, I’ll allow myself to put one there, however it can get daunting if I add too many goals, so I try to stick with one each.
This way of goal making helps me to achieve a more well-rounded focus in life.
It has been helpful throughout the years I have done this to not get too bogged down in one category of life but to focus equally across many.
I hope that you find this way of ending the year and ringing in the new year helpful too!
