While most folks are gearing themselves to party and bid adieu to the year, what is supposed to be a stress-relieving, exciting festive season, it usually turns out to be stressful, adrenaline filled activity.  But in all this mad rush, we  forget to either celebrate a year that we lived and fail to plan for the year ahead.

Why should we celebrate the year that went by? Like someone said” “Anyday as long as it is not six feet underground is a goodday”, we have to be grateful for life itself.  How true, the only ones without problems are those who are departed from us. So if you had tons of problems, believe me nothing is bigger than life-threatening problems.

The second aspect is planning for the year ahead. It is imperative to plan. Otherwise by the time we embrace the year fully, January would have passed by. It is extremely important to know atleast what are some of the key goals you aspire to achieve in the year. But the blueprint has to be ready when the calendar turns January 1.

I am a big believer in goals. There are times that I fall short, and even  completely miss the mark. But atleast I knew what i had set out to achieve rather than have them in my mind.

Spending a few hours before you put on the party shoes will help you celebrate knowing fully well that you are all set to usher in the new year.

In the mean time, go break a leg.
