New Year’s resolutions are like exercise equipment, we all have some but most of us don’t use them. They’re fun in theory but after March rolls around, those resolutions are shoved into the back of our minds like those dumbbells collecting dust in the back of your closet.
Surprisingly enough, event planning and goal tracking can be very similar, so here are a few tips to creating AND keeping that New Year’s resolution.
Inspiration: Surround yourself with things that inspire you, which could be photos, mood boards, videos, books or even other people. Inspiration creates motivation and motivation is half the battle! With event design, it’s essential to stay inspired, we love to keep trinkets that we find or take photos while were out. We’re constantly looking for inspiration to help create unique elements that we can add to events.
Plan of action: Organization is key! Creating a detailed plan of action provides direction and accountability. Logistics is the name of the game in event planning; without a plan or timeline, nothing would get done properly. Creating smaller goals within the main goal makes things much more manageable.
Optimism: A “can do” attitude can work wonders for your desired outcome. Your attitude determines your thoughts and your thoughts determine your actions. The LV office is always filled with smiles and encouragement! It may not always be smooth sailing but when you’re always finding new ways to love what you’re doing, it shows in the results!
So no failing this year ladies & gents! Let’s make 2017 a year of self-improvement and growth, both professionally and personally…LV will be rooting for you! 😉
