What Do You Want For Your Business, Blog, and Life in 2015?

Last week I shared my goals for 2015; while I'm not someone who like to plan out her entire life, I do believe thinking ahead and setting aside some time for a little planning helps to form habits and achieve goals that would perhaps otherwise get forgotten about. Giving a little thought to both short and long term goals means by the end of the year you're more likely to look back fondly than to regret all the things you didn't do.

- on your current situation
- on what you want to achieve
- on what challenges you need to set yourself

- get a calendar
- plan out events
- set challenges
- mark down deadlines
- plan the steps you need to take to achieve your goals

Think Ahead
- think about short term and long term goals
- short term goals are the stepping stones to achieving the long term challenges
- think how your actions now will influence your future

What do you want to achieve for your business, blog, or life in 2015?

  4. This outline is definitely gonna be helpful in honing in on those specific goals we want to achieve. Thank you. - Ash x


  5. I'm a little A typical here, but I have a few pounds to shift and a lot of exercise I really want to focus on. My wedding dress is perfect as it is... but I want to use our wedding as a perfect excuse to get into a more healthy shape and really make exercise is a focus. I have plans. They're written down. That's it right??
    Business wise; we want a stable simple year to all extents. Last year we sold our other cafe and bought out our business partner - now we want to consolidate just enjoying running the place as the two of us solely. I'm also going to make a concerted effort to give myself a day at month at home (not weekend time) to work... because a lot of things I need/want to do, need a day time focussed brain - not an end of the day/week brain and I need to prioritise it!
    Blog wise; now I have some calmness back at home (and space rather than building site!) I just want to blog. Simple. On stop overthinking it and just doing it perphaps.

  6. I love the idea of planning things out in a calendar so I have a direction for the year. This will probably be the first year I will try that approach, because in the past my years have been marked by working towards moving to and/or staying abroad. Now I'm home and it's time to focus on all that "career stuff." It's going to be an adjustment, but I'm excited for it all the same. So goals for 2015: get a permanent-ish address here in the States, secure a full-time job or equivalent revenue source, and continue my education and employment as a writer. Those are the big ones that stand out anyways. :)

  7. Come December, my diary for January was already half way full. I believe setting out goals for the coming year is important as you can celebrate when you finally get there.

  8. For starters, I need a daily planner. Still haven't gotten one for 2015.
    I love the 99U books. The 3 from this series are amazing!

    These are definitely good tips, although they are easier said than done. I know planning always makes everything easier and more comforting, so I'll definitely be doing that this year. Good luck for your own 2015! xx

  10. These are definitely great tips and I do try to ensure I do everything mentioned above, while I love planning and definitely find it essential whenever you need to get things done, it's equally important to reflect and reward yourself on a regular basis as well! Lovely post, as always!

    Thanks for those tips !

    I've found the best way to do anything is to make your own luck - whether that's jobs, men or diets, you're not gonna achieve anything sat around waiting for it!

    It is surprising how much just writing things out helps you! I have notebooks for so many different things and it really helps to get these ideas out of your head and into physical form.

  14. Absolutely - I really enjoy a combination of both written and digital note taking but everything always starts as a handwritten note :))

  15. Definitely - I'm very pro-active in that respect. I think we can't really complain about anything unless we're prepared to do something about it.

  16. I hope they helped

  17. 100%

    I don't think we're likely to achieve our goals and ambitions unless we prepare to work towards them. A lot of people think "it would be nice to do that" but then.. never do anything about starting to work towards it.

  18. Sure, easier said than done.. but if we sit around waiting, nothing will happen ;))

  19. I really recommend the MUJI ones - there is a weekly view on the left hand side and a page for notes on the right. There is also a calendar at the front, it really works for me.. and the 99U books are awesome :))

  20. I definitely believe in planning to achieve great things. I don't think anyone got anywhere just waiting for things to happen; we all need to be more pro-active.

  21. I have always written ideas and thoughts and goals down.. but until recently I never really sat down and worked out how I could achieve them. I think it's important we all take time out to think over our goals and how we can reach them.

    I wish you all the best in 2015 :))

  22. I am really excited about your wedding - I want to hear all about it although I'm sure you won't have time! I'm so happy for you both :))

    I loved hearing about you 2015 plans - I wish you all the best, Holly

  23. I hope this post helped :))

  24. Reflection on the year passed and the year ahead is so important :))

  25. I'm glad it helped, Hannah :))

  26. i recently bought that book, can't wait to get started!

  27. Haha, thanks Sophie! The wedding is 15.05.15, so the organising is now amping up! (I've been sending our eight (we've got four each!) bridesmaids a mammoth shopping style task email this morning! )
    All fun fun fun!!! until the two Mother of Brides get there stressed side on!

    Great advice, I'm trying to plan blog posts in advance to co-inside with launches and certain special dates through the year, hopefully this will help me get the posts together well in advance, and free up more time for networking, social media and Netflix!
