2018 is coming to an end today. To some, it has been a good year and to some, it is a year they would love to forget.
There are many activities that people have planned to do today to mark the end of the year, not just in Kenya but around the world.
Some, as it is the norm, will go to church to “thank God”. Some will go to clubs, bars, and under social joints to “wind up the year.” Some will just be in their houses with family and friends.
The last day of the is a good day for a wise person to reflect. It is the day that one sits down and looks back at the year that was.
In January 2018, there are resolutions that most people made. Some made them and forgot them immediately while some made them and purposed to fulfil them.
What were your resolutions for 2018? How many resolutions did you fulfill? How many remained unfulfilled? What were the challenges? How do you anticipate 2019? If you were to turn back time, what would you go back and change?
To many people, this is the day to “thank God”. But, what are you thanking God for? Do you have a reason why? You must have a reason and this is the day to put those reasons down.
How was your spending in 2018? Were you keeping records of your spending? What was your saving culture? Did you save anything in 2018? How much did you save?
Moving into the New Year like a blind mob is a mistake many people make. You must always have a plan for the new year. In fact, this is the day that you prepare your marking scheme for the new year. What you want for the new year and what you don’t.
Happy New Year.
