Thoughts of 2016. Plans for 2017.
I shared this in an email to my subscribers. Sharing it here for you to go through my thoughts.
I am sure the year 2017 has begun well for you and I wish you the best in this year. Emirates Diary as a blog has grown in number of visitors as well as subscribers. As on date there are more than 22,000 of you who have subscribed. This is a huge number. All thanks to you and your friendship!
Every year end, I have this ritual where I go back to the year gone by to see what I have achieved and what I could do better!! Personally and Professionally.
2016 was a great year for me as most of what I had planned, I was able to achieve.
Goal setting is the best thing you can do to your life. When you set positive goals and take action on them, it is fulfilling and changes your attitude in life.
My main goal in 2016 was to ‘LEARN’ more.
As a result, I took more than 5 online courses. These helped me grow personally and professionally! (For example: I landed a new job!). Besides these in 2016, I read more than 8 books and traveled to 4 countries for the first time. Exciting??
For 2017, my goals are following:
- Read more than 15 books;
- Take at least 8 courses online;
- Take action on 2 new blogs I have planned;
Now you may be asking, ‘why are you sharing this?’
The reason is simple:
If you are on my email list (Emirates Diary), I would like you to grow in your professional and personal life. Emirates Diary helps you with job tips and UAE Labour Law.
My another goal was also to EARN more. I also would like to contribute to your financial well being. That’s why I have my new blog, Dirham Talk. Dirham Talk helps you with saving and making money.
I would like to contribute in a small way to the improvement in your life with my blogs and content. I sincerely hope you take that in positive way and help yourself.
In 2017, this small blog will be transformed into a “Learn to Blog” blog. I will be teaching you various ways you can blog and share your thoughts to the world.
What about you? Have you planned anything for yourself in this new year? Share your Goals and Objectives for 2017. I will be happy to read them.
I wish you, your family, friends, a successful 2017. May all your dreams come true.
