Happy New Year!

Wow, I cannot believe we’re starting who new year! 2023 was pretty good but I have a lot to do this year so, Happy New Year!

For this year, I decided again not to make any resolutions. They are often not followed through on, discarded too fast, and ultimately set us up to fail. I don’t know about you but I’m not up for failure! In fact, Check out my post from last year on this exact topic.

That being said, I picked my word for 2024. It’s simply “accomplish”. This could mean anything, from a new job, to publishing a new piece of written work, or even learning a new skill. It’s up to me! I do have some realistic goals for the year though.

My Goals for a Happy New Year

  • Read at least 25 books
  • Finally find my new job
  • Gain one professional certificate or credential (already working on this one and may be done as early as this week!)
  • Dedicate more time to my loved ones. This is where I really slacked in the last few years and it shows. Some of my relationships took a hit and it’s really no one’s fault but my own.
  • Focus on getting better, more inclusive content on here and on my podcast!

These are just a few of the things I want to accomplish this year. I also am considering re-opening my freelance business since I had some success a few years back. In a previous post I mentioned that I wasn’t sure if I was cut out for the corporate world. This got me thinking about my freelance business and what it could mean to reboot it. In all honesty, it’s on the list for the year.

Happy New Year!

What Can the New Year Bring?

Looking out at 2024, I’m filled with hope. Not just for myself but for my loved ones and the state of things. It’s looking a bit gloomy right now to most of us but I’m choosing to see what CAN be versus what cannot be. That’s not to say that I’m blind and unrealistic. It simply means that it’s time to embrace the new year and make of it what we can. To put it bluntly, you can’t decide to put no effort in and expect change. It just doesn’t happen.

Well, that’s it for this week! I hope to drop my first podcast of 2024 this week so watch for that. To subscribe, you can do that via the link in this post or go to any of your favorite podcast providers and search for “Rambles with Rob.” Until next week, my friends be well and Namaste!
