Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope you are just as excited about 2014 as I am. A friend and I were making jokes about all the hilarious claims people make for their new year’s resolutions. Things like “I’m cutting people off in 2014” or “I’m going to start juicing everyday”. My question is, why do you have to wait for a new year to make changes in your life?

The way I see it, a new year just provides you a new time frame in which you can set and accomplish more goals. Sometimes it’s just easier to put action behind a goal at the beginning of a new year or new month as opposed to a random Saturday in March. However, you also have to stick with these goals in order to see a transition in your life. So when someone tells you on Jan 3rd, “It’s a new year and a new me”, I would politely say “Oh really? Let me know how you feel on December 31st.” It is after you have lived out the year and completed your goals or stuck to your “resolutions” when you know if you have transitioned into a new/better person.

I won’t list all of my goals on here, but I challenge you to create some with measurable check points through out the year. Vision boards or daily planners are always a great tool to help you focus. There are great things in store for Whitney Society and I would love to hear what you have planned for yourself in 2014!

  1. Whitney you look fabulous! I was just working on my vision board for 2014 yesterday lol. I couldn’t agree with you more, people shouldn’t have to wait for a new year to start new goals.

    • Thank you so much and Happy New Year to you! I love looking back at a vision board to see if I’m still in line with my vision and they’re just fun to put together :-)

  2. Hi Whitney! I have the same sentiments about New Year’s resolutions. I believe checkpoints are essential. I debated about getting the Emily Ley planner but decided on the Whitney English Day Designer (check it out too), it is amazing! Best wishes this year with Whitney Society. I’ll be reading : ) XO

    • Happy New Year to you! We’ll have to compare planners because I was also looking the Whitney English Day Designer but ended up going with Emily Ley!
