January HM Mini Goal – Watch the Sunrise

To kick off our 2024 HM Mini Goals program, we picked a goal that feels really accessible to ease into a successful and fun year of goal setting—Watch the Sunrise!

Making a dedicated effort to watch the sunrise sets the tone for our whole day. In order to really be effective, make it intentional. Choose a day—perhaps on a weekend when you have more free morning hours—to set your alarm, and plan to go drive or walk somewhere that affords you a quiet, unobstructed view of the sunrise. The beach is a perfect location, and a mountain ledge can be truly spectacular. If this isn’t possible, or it’s just too cold in your locale, even a spot near a window or on an enclosed porch can give you an opportunity to experience the sunrise fully, being truly present for that first light of day, with focus, calm and clarity. Be sure to take note of how dedicating that time to experience the sunrise transforms the way the rest of your day unfolds.

We are eager to see the inspiring, beautiful sunrise photos that will be shared as we accomplish this peaceful goal together. Be sure to tag #hmminigoals on your social media channels when you are up with the sunrise this month, and email your photos to minigoals@hughesmarino.com. We will share photos throughout the month of January, and will feature our top shots in our blog post in February, so stay tuned. Enjoy soaking in one (or many) peaceful sunrises this month!

ARE YOU IN? Here’s a few ways to participate alongside us!

Email “I’m In!” to minigoals@hughesmarino.com.

We would love to know that you are accomplishing these goals with us, and will be cheering you on with monthly updates.

Follow us on social media!

Follow along on our blog and on LinkedInInstagramX and Facebook, where we’ll reveal the new goal at the beginning of each month, and sprinkle in photos of the fun and creative ways we accomplished the HM Mini Goals together.

Review the mini goal and create a visible reminder.

Add the month’s mini goal to your online or wall calendar and place it somewhere you’ll be sure to see it, so it’s top of mind. We encourage you to follow along with the Mini Goals Magazine by tearing out the goal for the month and placing it somewhere on your desk to keep it top of mind. If you don’t have a magazine on hand and would like one, please let us know and we’d be happy to send you one.

Put the mini goal into action.

Follow up on your commitment and take note of how you feel when you are done. We promise you it’ll be fulfilling, meaningful and fun!

Share your involvement!

To help inspire others and share your accomplishments over the year, take a picture and post on social media with the tag #hmminigoals and share your photos with us at minigoals@hughesmarino.com. For added fun, wear your Hughes Marino “Enjoy the Journey” t-shirt and if you’d like, we’ll feature you on our social media channels, too. Don’t have one of our tees yet, or want another? Email us at tshirt@hughesmarino.com with your address and t-shirt size, and we will be happy to send one your way!

Say it, do it, repeat! We look forward to seeing where this positive momentum leads us all in 2024!

Enjoy the sunrise!
