Friday With Natasha: My Goals For 2019

By Zoe Greenwood, August 3 2020

It’s probably a reflection of my age but I love an old fashioned written diary.  Not only do I use it for my calendar, but it also gives me great satisfaction to write down my to-do lists each week and cross the items off as the week progresses. I make notes in the back and as the year evolves my diary becomes one of my most valued assets – with a vast array of recommendations and tips, as well as a record of places I have been and things I have seen.

Each year for Christmas my mum gives me a leather diary in a new colour, usually with my initials on it.  My diaries from previous years sit in a vibrant, colourful stack on the shelf in my study and signify to me not only the passing of time but a little reminder of all the things that have happened in my life.

Taking a new diary out of its box each year gives me a renewed energy and enthusiasm for the year ahead; the crisp empty pages are a blank slate waiting in anticipation for the opportunities to come.  As the year starts I see it as the perfect moment to reflect on the year that has passed, take stock and set intentions for the one ahead.

For me, the years seem to pass with increasing speed and the juggle of responsibilities get more complex. I know that I need to organize my time to prioritise the things which are most important to me. I find that unless I schedule something in – be it a run or a phone call – it tends not to happen. So I make sure I take the same approach in how I look at the year – what do I want it to include and what do I want to leave behind?

I love exploring new things – places, people, food, art and culture and while I am naturally inclined towards relaxed, fun time with family and friends doing the things I enjoy, I also know I will benefit if I push myself out of my comfort zone from time to time. I review all aspects of my life – family, relationships, work, health, education and within each area, I think about what I love and enjoy and how can I challenge myself to improve and expand it.

There is nothing like sharing your goals to bring a little accountability into play and increase the chances of you actually following through so I thought I would share a few of the things I would like to master in 2019 with you:

These are a few (of many things) I would like to achieve in the year ahead. Like everyone, I find some of it daunting and other things exciting but I am committed to pushing my own boundaries. Here’s to 2019 – wishing you all happiness, laughter, friendship, growth and accomplishment!
