Handy ways to get prepared, focused and be ready for all that’s ahead in the future: Focus Words, Goal Setting & Promises to yourself!

Set your future intentions with Focus Words, Goal Setting and Promises to yourself – as ways to be prepared, focused and ready for all that’s ahead…

When looking ahead, I like to do things that will get my mind focused on the future. I still want to carry with me the lessons learnt from the past, but in order to then go forward, being clear on my goals and my intentions for the year ahead.

If you’ve read my post Be ORGANISED & FOCUSED in life, with these TOP 3 ITEMS to keep you on track! you would know I use a few different items such as a diary, journal and calendar, in order to keep myself prepared and organised in a practical way.

However, below is a list of other things I do at the dawn of each new year instead of traditional resolutions, to get myself focused and ready for the future:

  • Choosing a focus word for the year ahead.
  • Setting my goals and intentions for the year ahead.
  • My New Year Promises to Myself.

However, whatever time of the year you are reading this, you can start to implement these things to help you get focused in life. In this post I will go on to explain just how I do each of these future focusing exercises and why. With the aim of inspiring you to do the same no matter your circumstance – if you are a business executive, stay at home parent or a chronic illness warrior. We all need a direction, plan, vision, goal and dream to work towards and focus on!

“Wave goodbye to the past but take with you it’s lessons. Say hello to the present with focus and determination for all that’s to come in the future…”

‘Never Judge a Book by Its Cover’ ~ Poem by Helen’s Journey to encourage us to be kind to each other

Have you felt unjustly judged in life, in work, in relationships and friendships?

Or do you yourself find you are being very judgemental of others or of appearances and don’t fully realise the depth to your stereotyping and assumptions?

This poem I’m sharing in this post is called ‘NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER’ and it covers both of these sides to this story of life…

We do not have to wait for ‘New Year Resolutions’ to look at moulding the ‘New You’  into who you want yourself to be and how you want to behave. I hope this poem will be a reminder for us all at any time of the year, to look at how we conduct ourselves on a daily basis and to be aware of how we generally treat other people and how others treat us too.
