Starting late into 2020? Here's how you can still crush it.
January 20, 2020
January has come and gone but that doesn't mean it's too late for you to start. So for those of you that just received their planner or for those of you that didn't have a great start into the new year. Trust me, we get it and this is for you! The good news? It will take you less than a Sunday afternoon to catch up what you missed this January.
January tends to be one of those months where everything can be a little all over the place. You just got back from being on vaca for 2 weeks (good for you!) and you probably had all the fun and now it's suddenly over and back to reality. It's ok to take 2 weeks to settle into your routine and figure out what your goals are. Not everyone is ready January 1st with everything all figured out and that's why we're here today. We want you to be able to get set up for 2020 in mere hours and here's how you're going to be able to do it:
1) Reflect on the first 3 weeks of this brand new year.
Figure out what matters to you for the year you're about to embark on. Grab a piece of paper or your LBN and write out your fitness goal, your relationship goal, your financial goals, your healthy habits and your morning and night routines. Take those "annual" goals and write them in your January goals section and then set small goals each month that will help you achieve your larger goals.
The good news? It will take you less than a Sunday afternoon to catch up what you missed in January.
2) Create a master "time blocking" plan.
Here I want you to use January's monthly calendar (since you're not going to use it anyway). Here I want you to schedule everything you want to accomplish in each month of the coming year and use it as your master calendar. Schedule things like your weekly budget, what day of the month you wanna do date night, what days are reserved for self-care, what days of the month are reserved for girls nights and so on. Now every month going forward I want you to look at your master calendar and remember what you set out for yourself for the year.
3) Vision boarding.
Each planner has its own vision board and the idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of your ideal life, who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to vacation, your life changes to match those images and those desires through the power of visualization.
To help you along the way we put out a video a few weeks back on how to use your planner which you can check out below.
