Happy New Year 2017!

Sunday, January 1, 2017





It's time to change new sheets for my calendar. I'm still so old-fashioned that I need a 'proper' paper agenda where I can write down all the important events with a pen. I have had this red Vernis ring binder day planner by Louis Vuitton for years. Very practical! 

Somehow it seems that year 2016 was full of unexpected incidents. We had brexit, historic US election, terror attacks, deaths of so many well-known persons - just to mention a few. My own year went very fast, too fast. There were lot of happy moments and steps towards my goals, but still more steps needed to reach them. In 2017 will make short-term plans how to get closer and finally achive those goals. 

Just read an intersting blog post by Smart Woman about new year's resolutions and how we always make them but never actually fulfill them. Here's a list of her tips:

1. Be realistic
2. Do it for you
3. Create steps
4. Set rewards
5. Ask for support
6. Be strong
7. Don't give up
8. Document your progress

You can find more details here!

Let's hope this year will bring lots of joy & happiness for all of us!





(FI) On tullut aika vaihtaa uudet sivut kalenteriin. Olen sen verran vanhanaikainen, että haluan ihan 'oikean' paperiversion, johon voin kirjoittaa kynällä ne tärkeimmät tapahtumat. Mulla on ollut tämä Luikkarin punainen vernis-kansilla varustettu rengaskansio jo vuosia. Erittäin näppärä!

Jotenkin näyttää siltä, että vuosi 2016 oli yleismaailmallisesti täynnä odottomattomia ilmiöitä. Oli brexitiä, Amerikan pressavaaleja, terrori-iskuja, julkkisten kuolemia - tässä ihan vaan muutama mieleen tullut tapahtuma. Omalta kohdaltani vuosi meni tosi nopeasti, aivan liian nopsaan. Vuoteen mahtui monia kivoja hetkiä ja sain saavutettua pari askelta kohti tavoitteita, mutta vielä tarvitaan muutama askel lisää. Tarkoituksena on tehdä lyhyen tähtäimen suunnitelmia, joilla pääsee lähemmäs tavoitteita ja lopulta saavuttaa ne. 

Luin just mielenkiintoisen postauksen Smart Woman -blogista koskien uuden vuoden lupauksia ja sitä kuinka vuodesta toiseen teemme niitä mutta emme pääse päämäärään. Tässä hänen vinkkejä:
1. Ole realistinen
2. Tee se itsellesi
3. Aseta etappeja
4. Palkitse 
5. Pyydä tukea
6. Ole vahva
7. Älä anna periksi
8. Dokumentoi edistyksesi

Toivotaan, että uusi vuosi toisi rutkasti iloa meille kaikille! 










How was your 2016?

  3. I like that advice. I think holding yourself accountable and having support helps a lot. Big changes are a lot of work!

    1. You're right - big changes don't happen without hard work.

  4. Yes, that's good advice from Smart Women. Small steps lead to bigger ones and it never pays to be too hard on yourself when it comes to new years resolutions.

  5. Great advice from Smart Women. Putting in work now pays off later. I don't make New year's resolutions, but I set weekly goals for myself that I can accomplish!! Way more satisfying and less disappointment if I don't complete everything on my list.

  6. I think those tips are awesome, it's important to set goals that are attainable so as to not end up disappointing yourself before the year ends. These are all important when you're planning your goals for the year ahead.

  9. 2016 was interesting to say the least but I am expecting great things in 2017. I am also a paper planner person. If I don't write it down I don't remember it.

  13. Happy New Year! We had a lot of happiness and troubles in 2016 as a country. Personally, I think of 2016 as the year I went to Disney for the first time and when I got engaged! Happy memories! PS: Love your planner.
