The new year is already here, and I’m trying very hard not to think about how it feels like a “twenty twenty too” kind of year. Things are getting out of hands with the pandemic, again, but that doesn’t mean that we should just give up on 2022 already !
I’ve made a pretty spread in my bullet journal for my goals and bucket list for the year, and more than a checklist, I’m going to use it to give a direction to this year. It’s okay if I don’t do everything, but it would be so great if I manage to. That’s the kind of mindset I had when doing it.
Since I’m mainly talking about my business and my writings here, I will focus on these two sections of my goals for 2022.
To be honest, I struggled with setting goals for my business. At first, I couldn’t think about more than “get more clients and get better at accounting” haha. But then I realized I had to be more ambitious. Getting at ease in a little routine where you’re not asking for much is not the kind of mindset I want for me, and definitely not the kind of future I want for my business. It made me realize that I didn’t have any kind of strategy for my business at the moment. I had one at the beginning, and when I started to find regular clients, I kind of gave up, thinking “oh that’s alright, that’s enough”. It is not enough. So I came up with new goals. I tried to think about where I wanted to go, what I wanted to achieve, and how I can reach that. Having multiple streams of income, being able to work from abroad part of the year… This is what I aim for, and it’s not going to happen overnight, especially if I do nothing special about it.
As for my writing goals, these were way easier to set. I always think about my writings, so I know exactly where I’m going, what I want to work on, what I want to publish, etc. But I tried to also think about additional things I’d like to try, because yeah when you’re self-published, you also have to think about your network, community, marketing, what you can do to make your book more accessible to a wider audience, for it to be read more and everywhere around the world.
What about you ? What are your goals for 2022 ?
I hope you have a lovely day, and see you next Wednesday 😉 !
