As 2011 comes to a near end, many take the time during this season to reflect on the past year – mistakes made, lessons learned, and opportunities missed. New Year resolutions are always hard to keep, especially when you start forgetting them towards the end of January. While some people make their resolutions in jest or keep it to themselves mentally, some go the extra mile to remind themselves visually. People who keep reminders of their resolutions are more likely to fulfill them.
First off, get a head start on your spring cleaning. We’re not saying that you should neaten everything up right away, but if you have the time to, make plans on how to make your home more organized. Listing things down makes them easier to remember and do. Not to mention that you can take your time accomplishing each item on the list.
Sometimes, you’ll find that there are some organizing tasks you can do that won’t take up a lot of time. If you’re able to accomplish even just a few of these tasks before the beginning of the year, you might be able to enjoy an already improved home.
Now that you’ve noted down the smaller things you have to take care of, it’s time to move on to bigger things. Make a list of things you’d like to change in the long run. Tell yourself that while you don’t need to accomplish them all within the next year, it’ll be great to work towards these goals.
Maybe you want to make your living room look more modern, or finally change the color scheme in your bedroom. No matter what your goals are for your home, just make sure to list them down and make them easy for you to see. Breaking them down into steps might help as well!
