In an acupuncture clinic we often spend time with people who are experiencing new beginnings.
Whether a new beginnings is
there is an art to navigating new beginnings. We have gathered some tried and tested techniques to support new beginnings..
Most of all be aware that new beginnings take energy and attention and some new beginnings can be quite challenging.
We may not be competent in a new beginning straight away. It may take time to learn new skills and how to apply them. It may feel overwhelming (especially when a new beginning is not of our choosing).
Of course the pay off for navigating a new beginning is moving into ease with a new situation..

5 Top Tips for Achieving your Goals in 2020
1. Have audacious goals but…
· Unpack the goal. Break it down into do-able parts / stages. Break it down into at least five smaller, attainable goals. Record how you are going to feel having achieved the goal. Give the goal review checkpoints and due dates.
2. Track your goals…
· Have a system in place that reminds you how and when to check in on your goals. Use a system that works for you, that is simple. If this is on a blackboard next to the fridge or in your outlook calendar or on some fancy app, it doesn’t matter so long as you use it to have track and stay focused on your goals.
3. Celebrate the milestones…
· Milestone, target, deliverable… whatever you want to call it, whenever you’ve worked on your goal and progressed, celebrate the win. Give your self some high fives along the way.
4. Have support systems in place…
· Some days can be more challenging than others. Phone a friend or know what it is you will do when you are not coping or feel like giving up on your goal. Maybe have a shared goal with a mate and you can be achieving this together and encourage each other along the way.
5. Commit to the goal…
· … by sharing your goal with others. Put it in writing what it is you are setting out to achieve. Maybe share updates on your progress.

We often hear of efforts to change that are unsuccessful. New Year's resolutions that don't make it past January etc. Here's a great way to make a change that will stick.
Five ways to make a change that sticks:
Making long term change is an example of a great paradox in life - We want to change for the future but can only really make changes now.
If we set out to quit an addiction to sugar for example we can't quit sugar tomorrow. All we can do is not eat that sugary sweet in front of us in this moment.
Big changes come about from a sequence of decisions made in a long string of moments.
Let us know how you go with a change. Some examples we have seen are:

TIME AND FIVE GREAT WAYS TO USE IT….
One of my favourite movies is the Justin Timberlake movie “In Time” from 2012. If you haven’t seen it, in brief, it is about a futuristic society in which people are genetically modified to “expire” on their 25 birthday – unless they are able to acquire more time credits from some means eg income or obtained from someone else’s time, thus making time a very valuable commodity indeed. No, I think you will have to watch the movie to get what I am saying…
Do you value your time? Are you making the most of your time? Have you ever done an analysis of how your time is spent each week? There are 168 hours in a week. Take a few minutes to check in where your time goes in a given week. Do a comparison of your desired hours versus your current hours, for example:-
SLEEP = 56 hours (desired), 49 hours (current)
WORKING = 40 hours (desired), 70 hours (current)
HOUSEWORK = 2 hours (desired), 8 hours (current)
STUDY / LEARNING = 8 hours (desired), 12 hours (current)
FITNESS = 12 hours (desired), 4 hours (current)
RELAX, MISC = 50 hours (desired), 25 hours (current)
Some of our time allocation is simply just fixed and non-negotiable. Once we start to look at how we use our time and value it more, we will look at how to use our time better and ways in which to effectively manage and leverage our time.
Five Tips on how to use time wisely and take the pressure off:-
1. Do a task / to do list for each day - and recognize how completing these helps towards achieving a goal you have set. Eg, on the daily to-do list you might have “walk the dogs” and this contributes to your goal of staying fit and healthy. Remember, your list can have fun things on there, it's not all about work!
2. Find and use the tool or techniques that most help you stay organized - and sane and use them consistently. Eg. Using “Reminders” tool on your smartphone / computer for to-do lists, things to remember or follow up. We use reminders for Groceries we need to buy. And I have a list of Books I want to read… These ‘reminders’ can be shared and updated by your partner or work team mate if required.
3. Delegate more often. Are you spending your time doing things that you should be delegating to someone else? Or are you spending time doing something you simply don't need to be doing ie, don't delegate it - delete it from your to-do list.
4. Work on the tasks that give you the maximum return for the goals that are important to you. Take time to check what is on your to-do list and prioritise time to do those things that give you the most benefit and achieving what it is you most want.
5. Be efficient and time effective. Review and refine tasks to ensure they are done most in the most efficient amount of time.

Do you plan to achieve big things? Weight loss, learning a new skill, running a certain distance?
Often we make grand plans to achieve something in a year or longer and if we don't achieve that goal we can be discouraged.
Sometimes just looking at a year long goal can be disheartening. Can I really walk 10KM when I haven't walked more that a short walk before?
One of our mentors recently suggest having a 12 week (or 90 day) plan. A 90 day plan is a good start with managing your time and tasks in achieving your goals.
Here's the process in 6 easy steps.
90 days is a great period to break down goals to..

As the dust settles on New Year's celebrations we sometimes turn our minds to New Year's resolutions. Will they work (when they might not of in the past)? What would it look like if they did?
I'm no expert on resolutions and their likelihood of success. I have, however, observed a lot of people make life changes. Quitting smoking, losing weight, eating more healthily, drinking less alcohol, quitting sugar are just some of the common intentions I've witnessed clients set.
Lately I've been reflecting on why one person achieves their resolution and another doesn't.
There is actually plenty of interesting literature on why people are successful or not in setting and achieving resolutions if you care to search the internet.
My conclusion - the most important factor that distinguishes those likely to be successful. A compelling personal reason to achieve the resolution (goal).
Let's break that down:
Compelling: Something that really will make a significant difference for you in your life. It may be small to others but to you it is important.
Personal: I've seldom seen someone achieve a goal for someone else.
So an option in setting up a resolution for 2017 could be to reflect on what is the most compelling thing you would like to achieve, personally in 2017 and enjoy the journey!
Acupuncturists frequently work with people to help them stay on track to achieve their goals - make sure you recruit a team to help you with yours..
