“Planning your day, week, month and year”, “Tips for managing your schedule like a pro”, “Why should everyone make a career plan for a year”… Let’s face it, at least once each of has tapped stuff like this in Google.
But why not try to focus more on leisure and think about possible activities to fill all 365 days?
From year to year we promise ourselves not to forget about the rest, whether it is a trip to the sea, cinema outing with friends, or a favorite artist’s concert. “Well, I’ll definitely visit/go there next year”, “I’m not up to this now” – an inner voice traditionally whispers to you at the end of December.
Skipping events that make you happy is simply illegal.
Start today, now, not on Monday. Make your 2019 eventful!
