January will be for embracing organization.
Do you like how I used my one big word for 2013 and my goal word for the month together in one sentence?
This month I have two main goals.
The first will be to prepare my correspondence for the year ahead. I want to sit down with a calendar and cards and organize myself so that I can mail out birthday, anniversary and holiday cards each month. Sending letters or cards is something I always say that I want to do, but I never remember to do so. This will be the month that I spend some time organizing my cards for the whole year. If all goes well, I’ll be able to grab my cards at the beginning of the month, write a personal note inside and then mail them.
The second main goal will be to draft a plan for the year. Molly from Stratejoy posted sometime last year about how she does quarterly check-ins, kind of like performace reviews, with herself. That idea has stayed with me since I first read it, and I’d like to start fresh with 2013. But I won’t be able to review my progress if I don’t have a plan. So this month (I’m not going to rush it and try to complete it all tonight) I’m going to zone in and draft my ideal 2013. I want to list the easy things I plan on accomplishing, to list the wild dreams I dreamt up for the year. I’ve said it before, but I have very high hopes for 2013. If there is anything I’ve learned in the past, it is that intention creates life. So I’m going to plot out my intentions.
I also plan on organizing some areas of my house. Organizing my stuff will be a goal you’ll see in the next few months at well. For January, I plan on tackling Wolverine’s room, my closet and my top drawer of my dresser.
In 2013, I’ll be checking in on my goals during my monthly observations I post on the last day of the month. I’m excited about my goal for this month and I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.
