Enjoying a well earned break during the summer months also gives you the opportunity to evaluate your future goals and consider new opportunities. But don’t let these new ideas and ambitions fade away only to reappear after a few glasses of something fizzy on New Years Eve.
If you feel passionately enough about making a change start a process which ensures your journey starts well and is therefore more likely to succeed.
Remember everyone is different and unique. The first step you take on your path to new discoveries is vitally important.
If you’re a visual person posting motivational images around your home will remind you of your goals and help you focus. Some amazing images can be found on sites such as shutterstock, pixabay and stock.adobe.
If you love putting pen to paper invest in a notepad specifically for your dreams and ambitions. Start to breakdown the steps you need to take to realise your dreams. I love notepads that have dividers and handy storage pockets for all of my bits and bobs!
If you’re much more at home using your phone, tablet or other device download an app. There are some great, free, applications with fantastic features.
Ones to consider include:
Great for note taking and to-do-lists, this app is like a digital notepad with the functionality to store audio, pictures and you can use your camera to scan paper documents.
A project management application but don’t let this put you off. Although you’ll probably only use a fraction of the available functions this is a great application for making to-do-lists, keeping to deadlines with the progress meter and setting due dates. Above all it is easy to use.
You’ll love this app if you’re a more visual person. Again this is designed for project management but can easily be used to help you keep on track with your goals and ambitions. After creating your login you’ll be guided through a tutorial and then you’re ready to start your own project.
Whichever method you decide to use to start your self-improvement programme the hardest step is always the first. So, create positive thoughts, put pen to paper or download that app and make a positive change today.
