It’s important and advisable to plan for the following year at the end of this year. 2020 came with all the surprises, from the Australian bushfires to the covid 19 pandemic, We also had other events like the stock market crashing, Notable celebrities like Chadwick Boseman, and Kobe Bryant dying.

At the same time, we saw people take the streets to protest and contend for their rights, such as the Black Lives Matter protest everywhere and also the Endsars protest here in Nigeria.

All this is to say that even though you cannot predict what will happen in the future we should be always prepared so as not to be adversely affected by such unforeseen events.

The first thing as we gradually round up the year is to create a plan for yourself regarding different areas of your life. For example, you can create a plan on how you want to manage your finances, or how you want to go about managing your health. You can list out the necessary steps that you need to take in other to achieve any item on your plan. The saying goes thus “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”, so it’s most important that you have a plan and you set milestones for your plan.

As cliché as that sounds a lot of persons just set goals but do not write them down. Writing your goals for the New Year can help you to look back from time to time and check them off when any of these goals or objectives have been achieved.
3. Be intentional
A lot of people start the New Year with so-called New Year resolutions but end up not fulfilling any, this is because people are not as intentional about their resolutions. Creating intentions and also writing them can go a long way in helping you structure your activities for the year; so go into 2021 being intentional about all you have written down.
