A dream will always be a dream when you do not do anything to pursue it, whereas a goal is a dream with a deadline. In the year 2014, I want to be pro-active in whatever I set my mind on. I don’t want to just go along with the flow from year to year; but to be part of something greater. How often have we end the year, with the hope that the next year will be better? I don’t want to end up feeling like I have not accomplished much on 31 Dec 2014 and start hoping that 2015 will be better.
As someone once said, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” So I confess:
2014 will be a year of accomplishments
I was particularly inspired by Super Camp’s teachings on mind-mapping skills, and hope that it can help me to visualize my goals better. The trick is to use as many colours as possible, making your mind-map look vibrant and interesting, so that even as time passes, you won’t bore yourself with the dreams you were once so passionate about when you started goal-setting. You can see the example in the picture. So what are you waiting for? Start your 2014 mind-map now!
New Year Resolutions should be taken seriously; don’t just do it because everyone is doing it, but do it because it is meant to help you visualize what you will be doing in this new year. The real aim is for you to reconsider the paths you have taken, and decide which paths you are going to take in the future. It is to help you see the bigger picture of your life and your long-term plannings. With this in mind, I hope that we can all make 2014 a fruitful year together! No more waiting for next year; start NOW.
