For me, 2014 should've been called You Better Work B*tch! It definitely was the year of new opportunities.
I learned to take risks while being in control by trusting my intuition, which sounds easier than it is. It was also a year of self-discovery, I didn't know I had an entrepreneurial spirit, that I have a hunger learn new things and that I have skills to be a great freelancer. Finally, I got more clarity on what my passion is.
I'm really grateful for having a revealing year, quitting my old job was the best decision, my spirit and soul returned back to me (I was working retail, mind you). I've met a lot of new people that have helped me tremendously and I'm more than excited to start 2015.
I see 2015 as the year of GROWTH by learning new things, creating content, producing and improving skills with an energized focus.
These are my goals for 2015
BIZ & BLOG GOALS
Fully integrate GTD. Having a productive life is key to growth, I believe the "getting things done" approach I will get there faster.
Go to networking events. Even though I'm a hell of an introverted I feel this is a great way to meet new prospects. At least once a month is good for me.
Boost my knowledge game. Girl needs to have some brain gains. I want to learn something new every week that I can apply to my biz and my clients by going to events or signing up for an online course.
Blog a minimum of 4 times a month. By the end of 2015, I should have written more than 52 blog posts.
Monetize my blog. Again with the passive income, pretty straightforward goal, I have to start generating ideas of how to accomplish this.
Get drivers license. I've been postponing this for a while, and it needs to happen ASAP!
Buy a used car. I think it's time for us for this investment, we don't really want to rely on others to help us or to spend a lot of money on taxi or car rental.
Be more active. I'm on my ideal weight, I don't really need to lose or gain. I just need to be less lazy. By this I mean, pumping some iron at the gym, connecting with myself by doing yoga or the earth by hiking, and just doing what I love... swimming.
Be more mindful. I'm an advocate for a conscious mind and all the benefits it brings. Meditating 5 times a week is something I wish to accomplish.
Travel. We are dying for a week at a beach somewhere in this world, it could be Cancun.
Communicating often with family and friends. Living far from everyone it's hard. I want to nourish my relationships by connecting more with them.
Watch a movie I haven't seen each week. 52 a year is totally doable. In 2010, my resolution was to watch 100 movies and I accomplished it. In 2014, I saw 55, yes I counted them on my movie Moleskine.
Get our permanent residency. I put this last because its the base for everything else. If this doesn't happen we will need to think of a plan B. Luckily things are looking bright, we just need to wait a few more months.
I think I covered everything, but I will be adding more as the year comes, most probably.
