CREATE A VISION What kind of life do you want? What do you need to change? How do you get to have the life you want? What do you need to do and what steps do you need to take? Make a list of the things you want to change in your life like your eating habits, exercising more, getting more sleep, better overall health, save money, start a new career, learn something new, or maybe find a life partner and even your soul mate?
YEARLY RITUAL – CREATE A GOALS BOOK Every year Dr. Dave and his wife Yoko sit down each year between Christmas and New Year’s and review the last year’s goals and make plans for the next year’s goals.
PLAN YOUR FINANCES Do you want to make a certain amount? Do you want to save a certain amount? Do you want to pay off any or all debts? Could it be paying off your car? Could it be paying off your mortgage entirely? Do you want to contribute to your IRAs and Pension Plans? Is it your goal to start making contributions or to make the maximum amounts contributions? Do you have an investment portfolio? Should you set one up? If you have one, do you contribute every single month to it? Dr. Dave has zero debt and owes no one. It feels fantastic to have no car payments, no mortgage payments, no credit card payments. If you want to sleep soundly at night, pay off your debt! Recommended Reading: The Millionaire Next Door
FUN THINGS People have many dedicated and serious goals, but you need to remember to have some fun in life. What are some fun goals you could make this year? Could it be travelling somewhere you have always wanted to go? Could it be celebrating your birthday or anniversary in a special way this year? Could it be entertaining more? Could it be having a party? Could it be learning a new language or learning to play an instrument? What is stopping you? How can you make fun things happen in your life in 2014?
FITNESS GOALS Dr. Dave and his wife Yoko enjoy travelling and fitness activities. This past year they backpacked in the Grand Canyon, skied in Colorado, and ran races all over the country. They also make fitness part of their daily and weekly fitness routines, such as: yoga together on Monday nights, running indoors or outdoors multiple times a week. What if you started with 15 minutes a day if you are not currently active? That could be your starting point with a goal of the end of the year with being able to make you and your health a priority for one hour each day. You could also have a goal of a race like a 5k or 10k race.
MONEY What if you committed certain percentages each month of your pay check to: XX% to your savings account, XX% to your investments and retirement, XX% to charity, XX% to any debt. You need to plan for your future to have certain levels of security in your savings and retirement to handle any economic changes in the world or your life. Getting out of debt and having the security of money in savings, investments, and retirement will take years off your life and sure let you sleep well at night!
GIVING TO CHARITY Dr. David Madow donates a very nice percentage of his income to various charities and encourages you do to the same. Pick organizations that resonate with you and your life and have meaning to you. Give big or give small. Give what you can and are able to give within your means. Make it a goal in 2014 to give back to your community and the world to those that are less fortunate than you. There will always be someone who makes more money than you and those that make less. Help out in your time or money or both how you can this year.
SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT Can you map out how much you sleep each night in an average week? Is that really enough? Are you getting at least 6-8 hours of sleep a night? If not, what could you start with tonight and this week? Could your goal by the end of the year to get 8 solid hours of sleep a night? Getting proper sleep will change your life from your health and fitness, weight loss, your career, and your overall happiness.
PEACE IN YOUR LIFE Do you need daily meditation? Have you wanted to try yoga? Do you need to change where you live? Do you need to change your career? How can you make small and big changes towards a more peace filled life?
