New Year's Even may be over, but the year has just begun! Here at Tiger Leasing, we've put together our favorite goals for the New Year. What are you going to focus on changing in 2010? What steps are you taking to make sure your resolutions and goals become a reality? Let us know in the comments section!
10.) Learn Something - Broadening your horizons by learning something new is a great goal for 2010. Whether you've always wanted to learn a new language, or you've been looking to improve your computer skills, there are resources everywhere. Check out your local schools and colleges for classes they offer. Head over to the library for books on the subject. Ask your family, friends or business network for resources and tools to help you learn something new!
9.) Make an Appointment - When was the last time you had a health check up, a dental exam, or a massage? Book an appointment you've been putting off, for whatever reason. Take care of yourself in 2010.
8.) Go Green - Why not do a little something for the environment this year? Did you know that washing your clothes in cold water is good for the environment? Frequent the local Farmer's Market when it warms up and support the earth and your neighbors. Pick up some houseplants for the office, they will be easy on the eyes and good for the lungs! You don't have to do anything drastic to make your life a little greener.
7.) Join Up - Is there a professional organization you've been interested in joining? Have your friends been asking you to commit to a basketball league or book club? Joining a new group will allow you to meet new people, explore your hobbies, and create a more balanced, active lifestyle.
6.) Help Others - By doing something for a family member, friend or complete stranger; you will be making a difference. Donate your old clothes, give to the food pantry or take an animal from the local shelter for a walk. Get a group together to do any of these things, and you'll be making more of a difference than you know.
5.) Go Somewhere New - Whether you've had your eye on that new book store, or you've always wanted to go to Scotland, make this your year to explore somewhere new. You never know what you'll find, and it will add a sense of excitement and adventure. Make 2010 memorable by discovering a new destination.
4.) Embrace Change - Let your life change, and be happy about those changes. Change is good, and allows you to grow personally and professionally. While change isn't always easy, look for the best in every situation and help others see the good in transformations as well.
3.) Get Healthy - According to the Obesity Society, "Obesity is the most prevalent, fatal, chronic, relapsing disorder of the 21st century." Make the time to do something for your health, whether you replace that morning doughnut with a piece of fruit or start heading to the gym for some exercise, it's important to take the time and make the decisions to benefit your health.
2.) Communicate More - Who doesn't get caught up in their own day to day problems? How many of those problems arise from miscommunications? Work on really listening to what other people are saying. Make sure your words and nonverbal cues are really conveying what it is your feeling. Have more conversations with the people who matter the most to you. Open new lines of communication at work and at home.
1.) Have Fun - Life is Fun, and it's important to take note of the moments when that is obvious! Recognize the little things that make life enjoyable, and focus on them! Take the time to create more of those moments, and have fun in your life, both at work and at home.
