What are you going to do this year different than last year?
That's a question I ask myself on NYE every year.
I have not gone out and "celebrated" officially a NYE for many many years.
Instead, each year is me and Jessica, Romeo, Foxy, Brutus and Mia our 4 Chihuahuas (yes I have 4 chis and 3 will love you to death and 1 will bite the hell out of you :) ) sit on the couch and plan the year. Plan where we want to go what we want to do and how we want to live.
I usually take off from Dec 22, to Jan 3rd.
To contemplate. To plan. To organize.
But most important to shave away the excess. Up until only 2 years ago, my entire world was about more. More money, more stuff to do, more apps, more ways of doing things, more everything. More social accounts, more madness.
And it drove me so nuts, about a year ago I found out I was subclinical Hypothyroid. Athletically / Stressfully / induced borderline Hypothyroid. Studies show that athletes get this a lot, especially if you are on a low salt diet.
Athletes and martial artists sweat out more minerals and salts than they take in often. Making almost the vast majority have some sort of deficiency. Ok enough on the biology lesson.
Just know I was messed up.
The stress of doing more. Working long hours. Flying all over the world. Writing, filming, blogging, social media, family life, friends, it made me nuts.
So I started to make sure this last 20 month has been about simplification. And the last year has been a high focus.
2019 I focus 100% of my energy, on you.
Your schools, your services, the good you do in the world and the ability for you to get more students. Impact more lives. Change your own life. Change mine as well.
This type of planning breaks down entire years into bite-size chunks. You figure out what you want and then work backward from there.
This type of planning has helped me immensely. I believe it can help you.
Try it out and here is to a happy healthy and prosperous 2019! Drop a comment below.
