Have you set your goals this year? Do you know what you want to accomplish? How's the year going to look?
If you haven't yet, take the time to write down your goals
Be clear on how you want to end 2023. Where will you be by then? You can create a vision board, if that's something you enjoy. A collection of images and words you can look at throughout the year to remind you of your intentions.
Why do you have to do this? To give you clarity and direction.
Clarity in your priorities, and direction in your actions and decisions. You'll know what projects to say yes to and all the other stuff to say no to. You'll know where to devote your energy and time, so that you can move toward your goals, month after month.
So that you don't waste so much of your time on work that won't get you anywhere, and personal activities that don't align with your vision.
So that you spend 2023 with intent. With purpose.
