It’s a new day. It’s a new week. It’s a new year.
Today on the 1st of January I’d like to share 5 things that will make my future self happy and hopefully will help you achieve the resolutions you have set for 2018, just because I know we all strive to be better, to do more, and to achieve more. May 2018 be prosperous, filled with love, bringing you joy, many new places, many new experiences and many lovely memories when you look back at it.
1. Learn to do things now. Stop postponing. Stop procrastinating.
Everything that you would like to do, just do it. Start with small steps now, and walk slowly towards achieving bigger dreams and goals. Not all of us can achieve our ultimate dreams today, but there are many steps towards reaching your goals, so start now one step at a time. If you want to travel, find these cheap tickets, buy them for the summer and start planning. If you want to learn to cook, find an easy recipe somewhere here and surprise yourself today. It is so easy to start small.
2. Organize your life.
Declutter, throw things away, find places for your belongings, leave only items you love. Learning to be more organized and living light will help you be calmer, have more time and enjoy live in the long run.
3. Start budgeting.
I am not much of a budgeter, but I know that the earlier I learn to not spend mindlessly, the better it would be for me and my future self will be thankful. The new year is a great place to start, so try for one month and see what happens, learn from your mistakes and improve.
4. Create a place to record your memories.
It can be a blog, a diary or a simple list in the notes app on your phone. It is so important to note everything that you have achieved or all the memories that you will be thankful for reading back. A blog is a great idea, but it is not for everyone, so just get a notebook, get a pen and start noting all that makes you happy.
5. Find inspiration
What works for you and inspires you? Travel, read or just create an inspiration board. Find inspiration now and know that in future it would work for your best advantage.
Happy New Year!
