“I’m not a big New Year’s Resolution guy, but . . . ” -Don
“But it’s nice to have a clean slate.” -w
In a brief steam-room interaction, Don confirmed what most of us feel this time of year. No one likes to set goals with dates and expectations when failure is oft the case. Sure, it’s great to set big goals. But there’s so much that goes into meeting each one of those goals – it’s intimidating.
However, we can all agree that a “clean slate” is nice.
Come down for the holidays and don’t overlook January and February for the always-refreshing new life March has to offer. Before there is “life” there is “conception.” (i.e. to conceptualize).
The latter is where many of us find ourselves: conceptualizing where we’d like to be – through fitness, communication, organization, business, family etc.
It’s hard work. But if you aren’t conceptualizing (read: ideating), then what are your days, if not similar? Who are you, if not the same?
Don knows January brings hope. He wants to propose to his girlfriend by the end of the year. That’s a beautiful concept. But thanks to a clean slate, Don can make it a reality.

As a good employee, you should inquire with colleagues about their 2020 goals. Their answers might inspire goals of your own.

Hey! I’m asking a few people around the office about their personal work goals for the year. Would you mind sharing a few of yours? I’m currently working on my own. Thanks!
What’s up, _____! Hope you had a great New Year. Real quick – I’m curious if you have any specific work goals for 2020. Would love to know how I can encourage you this year.
Hey _____, Hope you had a good holiday and are ready to get back at it. I was wondering, do you have any specific work goals this year? I’m working on my list and thought you might have some good ideas. Let me know when you have time. Thanks!
Alright, quick q on some 2020 goals. Our office eats at the same places for lunch all the time. Where are some new places we could go?
I know we have goals our business is shooting for, but I’m curious what your goals our for our company this year and how we could get there? Let me know!
New Year’s Resolutions aren’t bad. But if you don’t have anyone keeping you accountable, New Year’s Resolutions are non-existent. Text someone today and bring them in on your journey.

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution? Text it/them to me so I can ask you about it in three weeks.
What are your work goals for 2020?
Dude. Let’s grab coffee soon and talk about 2020 goals. I need someone to keep me accountable.
I’m not going to tell anyone my New Year’s Resolutions. I’d rather just do it and then tell people what I did in December. But I’m going to tell you because I value your accountability as a friend. And if I fail it’s going to be your fault. Sound good?
My New Year’s Resolution: _________. Text me once a month and make sure I’m keeping track 🙌🏼
December 26-27, 2019 was the inauguration of Qwill Day (pt. 1 and 2) where we set goals, articulated core values and the mission of Qwill Creative.
While still in progress, the new core values are:
Encourage the Client
Enhance My Skill-Set
No Unspoken Expectations
Respond / Follow Up
We created the new mission statement:
To help and encourage small-to-medium sized businesses with consistent long-form or short-form copy.
In addition, we completed multiple website updates. Namely, the Porcupine Blog. There are still edits and revisions to be made, but the goal is simple: one blog post every day. Tuesdays and Thursdays are personal content (like this post). And Monday, Wednesday and Friday contain actionable content: emails and texts you can copy/paste to those you work with and love.
But the greatest Qwill Day development was an emphasis on yearly, monthly and daily planning as a way to gain traction. This will occur through planning each hour of the work day in addition to Bullet Journaling.
Thanks for taking the time to read! More content to come.
