A new year brings a fresh perspective of what’s possible. Resolutions abound as we explore and discover ways to enhance our daily lives. Milliken keenly understands this aspiration, and we encourage our associates and our communities to create a meaningful new year through tailored resolutions.
When creating resolutions, consider how these four investments can enrich your plans and help make 2018 your best year yet.
Invest in yourself
The basis of your resolutions should be how to care for and improve yourself. There are countless ways to achieve this, and investing in yourself should be as unique as you are. Some choose to improve their health and wellness in the new year, while others might set goals towards educational or professional achievements. Still others may choose to broaden their horizons through reading, experiences or change. Investing in yourself is all about finding how best to meet your personal needs and help yourself grow over the course of the year.
Invest in your passion
Once you have your basic resolutions set, we encourage you to discover more about your passions and figure out how you can foster them. Passion projects and hobbies help provide creative and innovative outlets as alternatives to our daily routine. It brings about new insights and stimulates new approaches, which often times transcend into daily personal or professional life.
Invest in your community
Community can be many different things, but this investment is all about identifying those closest to you and pinpointing how you can strengthen those ties. Communities important to you might be family, close friends, professional networks or teams, or even neighbors. By zeroing in on a community to invest in, you are able to unlock resources to contribute to a more meaningful life, while inspiring others to do the same.
Invest in your world
In finding a way to give to our global community, you reiterate the inherent value of thinking outside ourselves. Investing in our world – however makes the most sense for you – provides you with universal prospective to deepen your own outlook. Consider volunteer programs, charitable giving, or sustainable and environmental action when setting a resolution, as there are limitless ways to leave your mark on our planet.
These four considerations can help you craft a meaningful approach to 2018, encouraging you to connect with opportunities and discover how to improve your life and the lives of others. Happy New Year from all of us at Milliken!
