A Happy New Year to one and all from all of us here at Freedom Works and what better way to kick off the year than a fresh and motivational blog?
Notice this blog is titled New Year Better You and this is because we do not believe in anyone having to become a new version of themselves but simply a better and best possible version of themselves.
Whether you wish to make improvements to your business or yourself this year there are so many ways to achieve these little missions and we are going to reveal how to do so in this blog.
We have gathered some of the very best tips to get you motivated both in your business and personal life this year:
Setting realistic goals: It is so great to set yourself some goals to achieve throughout the year but try your very best to not be so harsh on yourself when it comes to deadlines and the amount of effort it may take. For instance setting yourself a very difficult weight loss goal will inevitably leave you feeling anxious and worried in your work life so give yourself a generous time frame and any progress is success. In regards to your business perhaps it may be a goal to double your client base in the next six months but remember Rome was not built in a day.
Increasing productivity: Too often business owners feel there are just not enough hours in the day to complete every task, so why not set yourself a goal to make sure every hour is as prioritised and productive as it possibly can be? This will allow you to feel less anxious and uneasy as you may have previously been if important tasks were missed.
Cutting down on procrastination: We are all guilty of procrastinating in some way or another but let's try our hardest to cut down this year. We found a really useful article to help with procrastinating on WikiHow so go and have a look https://www.wikihow.com/Stop-Procrastinating for useful methods such as starting your day with the hardest tasks.
Spread positive energy and it will be returned: It is so key to let go of last year’s silly mistakes or missed opportunities and accept defeat at times. 2020 is a new year and it has opened 365 new chances to network, discover, educate yourself and help others. Make sure you reach out to other businesses and really achieve that sense of community support this year. Keep and eye out for community events, many of which we will be hosting throughout our four spaces.
Be kind and giving- Each community manager of our four spaces choses a charity every year to support and raise vital funds for. This September our managing director, Jon Trigg, will trek to the top of Africa's largest mountain and the 4th highest topographic peak in the world - Mount Kilimanjaro. He has set himself a goal of raising £5,500 for the Rocking Horse Appeal - a Sussex based charity which is instrumental in delivering critical medical equipment and support for the sick children of Sussex. So the question is… how can you make a real difference this year?
And that is a wrap for this week, we hope you have taken away at least one key motivational tip to kick start another successful year and tune in again next week where we will be spreading even more positive vibes.
