Looking forward To A Fabulous 2019!
2019 - A brand new year.
Do you find that you always feel a bit uplifted as the New Year rolls around. Sometimes it is a relief to leave the previous one behind and start afresh.
It is a general practice for many of us to stop and reflect on our past year, and think about what we want for the incoming one. As far as it goes, the process of writing goals for a new year etc. is not a bad thing, and perhaps you've even tried some of those things but have they worked out?
My question is, what kind of things could really make a difference to how you go forward into 2019?
One of the things that can make a big difference is really looking at and thinking deeply about one or two big goals we would like to achieve for the year. These can be personal, business, or creative goals. So a goal in this context is not something such as, I want to complete one painting next week. Rather the goal might be, I want to have a solo show in November 2019. This goal has many elements to it and would require detailed planning and many steps before it came to fruition. This is the kind of goal I'm speaking of.
When you have something that is really concrete like this, you can then break it down into lots of manageable steps. I find the easiest way to do this is to begin with a brain dump. Just unload onto a piece of paper every thing you can thing of related to your topic or use a Mind Map if you want to be a bit more organized.
Something to help with this, that has been around for a while, and I only came across recently - is Bullet Journaling.
Here is a video I found on it, where the young girl takes you through how to set it up. I had already been doing a form of this using some of the elements, however this was like the icing on the cake. The magic lies in the indexing tool. So if you really want to unclutter your head and streamline 2019 - here's how to do it!
The Bullet Journal® (or BuJo® for short) was created by Ryder Carroll, a digital product designer and author living in Brooklyn, NY. Diagnosed with learning disabilities early in life, he was forced to figure out alternate ways to be focused and productive The link below takes you to his site

So welcome to another year and I hope my post will give you some ideas on streamlining your year. Wishing you a 2019, filled with joy, creativity, love and abundance.
