New Year, New Projects
As the New Year comes in, consider taking on new challenges in the form of actual projects.
Creating new side projects for 2015 helps give you a year-round sense of purpose. Instead of writing down a list of resolutions, think of three new projects that you will need to take on and accomplish throughout the year.
The problem with resolutions is that it entails having to change something about yourself, which is a much harder feat than creating something new. If you commit to accomplishing a project, it is a much more positive way of looking at making things better, and you end up changing some bad things about yourself along the way without noticing.
Here are some projects that I am personally taking on this year, let me know if you want to join me in any of them!
Make My Home More Eco-Friendly
A really fulfilling project that I decided to take on is to make my home more eco-friendly. I want to implement eco-friendly systems and also have simple home renovations that can help make my environment both healthier to live in but also better for the environment. I’ve heard about companies that provide eco-friendly materials. A company called Futurewood offers stylish, low-maintenance composite decking solutions that allows you to make great home renovations with sustainable materials.
Find a New Hobby
A really good project that I feel would make good use of my down time is to go on a quest to find a new hobby. I’ve signed myself up for a few classes that I have to try when the year starts, then it’s all a matter of finding the one that I like the most and to attend it consistently throughout the year. Think about it, it is just an hour of a day in your week, and it can get you into something new that can really help take you out of your daily routine and help you meet new friends.
Start a Side Hustle
Every Career Girl needs a side hustle. Whether it is a few writing jobs or a small cupcake business, something that helps you earn a bit of money while doing something you love can really give you big returns at the end of the year. You not only get some money, you also get a sense of fulfillment over growing a business that you own.
Whatever project you take on, what truly matters is that you commit to it and you look on with a purposeful optimism for the future. What projects are you starting this year? Let us know at @mscareergirl now!
