Ever get ready for a party, arrive at the location, get out your car, see everyone heading to the venue with items in their hands and you only have your phone and charger? You immediately feel a sense of regret, right? Well, before you head into a New Year’s Eve party or anywhere else before the New Year, make sure you aren’t walking into the year empty-handed.
Just like you don’t (or shouldn’t) forget your number 2 pencil to take a final exam, don’t come unprepared for the next chapter in your life. Make sure you have the correct tools and materials for your success.
Plan on going becoming a graphic designer this upcoming year? Have you purchased the programs you need to learn these skills? Have you signed up for a class? If not, now is the time to get a head start on your plans.
Anything you can do later, you can prep for now. Need a desk in your room to concentrate? Order it now before the new year even gets here. Start identifying what tools you need to be successful and invest in them now.
There’s nothing worse than being the person who has to leave the party to go get something they shouldn’t have forgotten in the first place. Even if you’re only gone for 30 minutes, you probably missed the highlight of the night because you came unprepared. You don’t have to be that person. You also don’t have to be that person that shows up late. If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. Show up on time, have the time of your life and make every minute worth it.
This upcoming year is your party, so dance if you want to, cry if you want to, but my goodness, please don’t come empty-handed.
- Identify 3 material things you can take into the next year that will help you reach your goals. Write them down and then make a plan on how you can obtain these items before the new year.
Of course, this is optional, but if you would like to be held accountable for starting your year off right, feel free to submit your ARTwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any submissions will be completely confidential.
