Four (4) Tips to Scale Through 2022
I feel so excited to wish you a happy new year. This excitement cannot be contained as I consider it a privilege and not a right to be alive, well and able to write this article in 2022. We are just eight days into 2022 and I hope you started the year with so much enthusiasm and zeal. The year is fresh so you’ve got ample time to achieve a lot.
I would like to share some useful tips that you need to keep in mind as the journey into the year:
- 2022 Is Not 2021
Let me make it clear, 2022 is not 2021. Not at all. It's a fact that they both have the same calendar months and days but you can clearly distinguish between them. What experiences did you have in 2021? Were they good or bad? Do you have the feeling of Déjà vu already? If you have not done an appraisal of the previous year, now is the time to do so. The onus is on you to decide if you want a repeat of the same experience or not. What makes 2022 different from 2021 is what you do; the lessons you have learnt from 2021 and the actions you intend to take, the strategy you deploy and the habits you cultivate.
2. Be Intentional About 2022
Have you got goals? Write them in your journal and pursue with passion. If you are yet to write your goals, please take out time this month to do so. Goal setting is important because it gives one a sense of direction and provides a yardstick for measuring performance. It is so important if you intend to end the year well. Don’t join the group of “what will be will be”. It never pays off. You will end up with more regret than fulfillment. You can divide your goals into annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals. Make sure they are SMART- Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time bound. This will help you in achieving even the very least goal on your list. Be intentional about your life.
3. Build Your Spiritual life
Whether you like it or not, believe it or not or agree with me, the spiritual controls the physical. 2022 is not a year to be careless about your spiritual life. I am a Christian and I believe strongly that it is important to maintain a good relationship with God so He can be with us in every step of the way. You will need clarity of direction from the Holysirit , hence your spiritual antenna must be alert. Being alert requires that you have a working relationship with the Holyspirit so that he can freely communicate with you.
4. Leverage On Good Network
This year be deliberate about the people in your life. Learn how to build good relationship with people. Know the relationships that needs to be nourished and the ones that needs to be uprooted. Join groups online and physically that are edifying. Attend conferences and programmes where you can build your mental capacity and meet likeminded people. Take some time off on vacations to refresh yourself. Also, make friends wherever you go. You never know who you meet on the way and what role they can play in your life.
Ultimately, don’t joke about your life in 2022.
2022 will be a great year for us all.
