How was your year? Was it spectacular? Did you accomplish all of your goals? Or Did you plan to start something that you never got around too? Go to your to do list and check off everything that you completed. Give yourself a half check if you started but did not complete some tasks.
If you did not accomplish, all that you planned during 2017, it is not too late. You still have 29 days to start on those neglected goals. Once started, you can always carry them over into next year and move toward completion.
What do you expect in the new year? Do you have particular hopes and dreams? What is the one thing that you most want to accomplish in the upcoming year? Can you envision your main goal coming to fruition?
Now is a good time to work on a vision board. Have fun with your board. Embellish it and include lots of colorful pictures detailing your vision. add your favorite words of encouragement and positive phrases. Post your board in a prominent place. Plan a vision board event with friends and family.

Strive to move forward on your goals daily and to monitor your progress often. Don’t forget to set a deadline for yourself.
So yes, though it is the end of 2017, however, it is also the beginning of 2018, you can wrap up the old and start anew.
