10 Questions to Ask Yourself That'll Make Next Year Your Best Yet

New Year

With a New Year comes a chance to start over, to clean the slate, and to set new goals for yourself. So, what are you going to do differently next year?

Here comes the New Year! Get yourself ready to start the year the right way with this week's blog.

Having Direction

In the book, Alice in Wonderland, Cheshire Cat and Alice famously have an exchange where Alice asks the cat for directions. “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”, Alice asks. “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” the cat replies. “I don’t much care where” Alice replies. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” the cat says. “So, long as I get somewhere,” Alice adds. Cheshire cat replies “Oh, you’re sure to do that, if you only walk long enough.”

But what if, rather than just let things happen by chance, you decided to take charge and move in the direction you´ve always dreamed?

Doing Things Differently  

So, when you think about next year, what excites you? What do you see yourself doing? Maybe you´d like to travel more. Or maybe you´d like to renovate the spare room, or re-decorate your apartment. Buy a new car, go back to school, or pursue your long-held dream of becoming an author.

Whatever excites you at the prospect of a New Year, the ending of one year provides us all with the opportunity to start over.

No more excuses. No more delays.

Isn´t it time you lived the life you want to live? If not now, when?
