Our recent article about ways to stick to your fitness resolution for 2018 got us thinking about New Year’s resolutions in general. Most of us have similar resolutions year after year; some are able to realize theirs, while others simply add the same resolutions and try again next year.
We believe 2018 should be different. It will be an exciting year with great things to anticipate, so our New Year’s resolution should be just as special. To get you inspired, here are some of the goals you should consider aiming for in 2018.
Everyone has an investment these days. The financial markets are more accessible than ever, which means you can invest as little as $50 and pursue the same percentage of capital gain as bigger investors. The same can be said for real estate and other investments; the available financing options certainly make investing in your first real estate a lot easier than you think.
The main goal is to invest one way or another. If you don’t have an investment portfolio yet, you’re missing out on opportunities to develop your wealth and secure a better financial future. 2018 is the perfect year to get started.
Just start. Save enough money to invest every month and watch your investment portfolio grow. The more you invest, the more you will be interested in investing some more, and the more you will earn in return.
2. Go Back to School
Online degrees certainly make going back to school as easy as it gets. You still have to meet certain requirements to enrol into programs such as the masters in diplomacy program, but the course itself is both very flexible and manageable.
Today’s online degrees are fully accredited. You can transfer in and out of the program of your choice without a problem; you now have the chance to pick up where you left off with your undergraduate or graduate degree.
Even top universities such as Norwich University are making their online courses more accessible. There are also more fields and majors to choose from, including the online diplomacy degree mentioned earlier. The degree you earn at the end of the course is the perfect thing you need to push your career forward; Insidify will help you with realizing that push.
3. Learn Something New
This is a relatively simple goal to aim for, but one that not many people consider. Be honest with yourself; when was the last time you learned a new skill? When was the last time you spent time reading tutorials and trying new things?
Again, it is a great goal to aim for in 2018. When you’re done with mastering one new skill, continue with the next. There is an endless array of great things to try and you’ll spend a lot of weekends doing things you never thought you could do before.
All of these new goals can be yours to aim for in 2018. All of them are exciting and highly rewarding; the latter should be more than enough reason to give these goals a try and add them to your New Year’s resolutions.
