Happy New Year! I trust you had a wonderful Christmas and saw 2013 in with style – we certainly did.
New Year is of course known as a time for reflection and forward planning and in a recent newsletter I mentioned the three goals I have set myself in business this year, and I asked if anyone else wanted to share their top three goals via this blog. Several people offered to go public with their goals and it’s been fascinating reading what everyone else wants to achieve in 2013. So here is a selection of New Year goals – perhaps they’ll inspire you to set yourself some challenges this year too!
New Year Goals
Alison Neale, The Proof Fairy
In 2013 I want:
1. I want to finish and publish my book about raising a child with ADHD
2. I want to develop and run some blogging workshops
3. I want to grow the consultancy/training part of my business
1. I want to provide inspirational motivational business courses leading employees to feel happier and more fulfilled – both at work and in their personal lives.
