Do you want to make the most of 2019?
With only 43 days of 2019 left, it’s never been a better time to make sure you are making the most of 2019, and all the opportunities it has to offer! Sydney is a hub of activity. Whether you want to network, make friends, begin a new hobby, or learn a new skill among others, now is a better time than ever to actively go after your goals. With such busy lives, it can be difficult to take time out for ourselves, and if you are the kind of person who can’t remember the last time you did something for you, then keep reading!
You don’t have time for such things right? Wrong. We all have time for the things we wish to prioritise. However, it can be difficult to make time for something you don’t consider to be “that important” when you have various different commitments. This is where a little bit of planning comes into play. Buy yourself a planner (I personally recommend Passion Planner). A little bit of time spent mapping out your week, your objectives and priorities can really help you to utilise better your time, and most importantly, make time for yourself, you deserve it!
Below you’ll find a range of different events, so there’s sure to be something that will tickle your fancy. Don’t wait until 2020. Try something new NOW!
