Welcome to 2022! I am happy to be back and shifting focus to making others’ lives easier, provide different perspective and have new conversations as we focus on all that this year can and will be. I don’t believe in resolutions for myself – but I make goals, and I focus on where I want to be at the end of a particular length of time. Last May I chose to make myself a focus, and quickly went back to what was comfortable for me – work, work and more work. But not building toward my personal or professional goals.
Like many, 2021 became my year of change and survival. I left what I thought was a safe place, and have focused on helping others streamline their lives, create consistency and have plans for reaching their goals. I learned a lot about myself, what I can and can’t tolerate and how to best communicate in positive and challenging client situations.
Despite my best efforts to make my goals, both personally and professionally, my priority, I spent more time focused on my client’s goals and needs over my own. Though important, it put my business goals on the back burner, and halted my plans for life outside of work. So – for 2022, my focus will continue to be my clients and events, but also my own plans and goals in life.
I have many goals, which I will continue to share with all of you as I navigate the year – my goals are building blocks to round out the next 12 months, so that each month, I’m implementing the skills/tasks that move me toward the overall goals, not just an overwhelming list of accomplishments to make. A few are simple – such as going to bed on time, drinking more water and trying new recipes; while others will require more time and energy – finishing all the knitting projects in the house, spend more time with friends and family, and creating my dream backyard. Do you make goals, resolutions or intentions each year? How do you keep them a focus?
Plan Prep Pack Plate was built to help people streamline and simplify food prep for themselves and their families. And, that will continue to be a service we offer – but please also stay tuned for more offerings we’ll be rolling out soon, including budgeting, preparing to buy/sell a house, planning for/preparing for a home move, party planning and more. We can’t wait to share all the tips and tricks we use every day – and be of greater service to anyone who needs more specialized plans.
Here’s to 2022 – we’re in this together.
