“Insanity Is Doing Same Thing Over And Over Again And Expecting Different Results."   - Albert Einstein
We are rapidly leaving this year and nearing the new year 2016 2017. The first thing that comes to my mind when I see "New Year" is Resolutions and Goals. I try them on and off. But lately, I have become quite serious about setting goals and achieving them. Some people do this religiously every year. You may have also had a list of resolution for every new yearBut what happens next, we unknowingly forget about them as the month of January (or sometimes February) slips. And you don't want to continue it this year too! So that's why YOU are here to learn a way to approach the fresh list of resolutions and goals.

So why these new year resolutions slip out of mind in few weeks? I asked that question to myself and found that I was using the age-old methods of goal settings, skipping that as the time changes so the ways of getting things done should! We all need to TRANSFORM the process of making resolutions and IMPROVE the ways to get them done. 

I learned few new method from different sources* and finally figured out a way that suits me best. And I'm really confident that this method will also help you too! Because this improvised method is simple and practical, following new modern insights. And to get more out this method, I have made complementary planning printable. They are FREE for personal use. So let's go and find How To Make This Year Your Best Year Yet!

Take the printout of flight essentials printable and write down your answers in the space provided.  

Question 1
What is the weather of your destination?

Question 2
What type / occasion is this trip?
(For example, a visit to relatives, attending a wedding, beach vacation, hill station trip, et cetera)

Question 3
How many days’ trip you have planned (including travelling days)?

Answer 1 and 2 will help you to choose the right type and variety of your essentials, like clothes, accessories, tech stuff, makeup, and so on, according to the weather and the occasion of the trip.

Answer 3 will help you to decide the quantity of your essentials, like number of clothes, shoes, medicines, toiletries, et cetera.

Always remember that while travelling by plane you have to divide your luggage into two main categories, carry-on and check-in.
