Goal Setting Hangover

goalsettingsm

Are you like me and have an overachiever attitude about doing things? I am so ready in the New Year to get started and then come up with so many ideas. In the past I would have so many goals that I would suffer from burnout very quickly and really end up with things done half way by the end of the year. I call this a “goal setting hangover”. This year I am going to see more of my own personal goals through, like I do for my clients in getting their homes completed! By setting realistic attainable goals.

Here are my tips on Goal Setting

  • What I have learned is purge first, write out all that you want to do.
  • Then, go through the list and prioritize what is most important.
  • Set very realistic dates – this is hard to do but you have to be really honest when you do this.
  • Next take the first goal or thing you want to do and write the steps.
  • If you don’t make the deadline for the goal don’t just jump to the next one, stick with that original goal and see it through. Delays happen – Life happens that cause setbacks, and we tend to not set realistic time so don’t let that discourage you.
  • Finally celebrate when you have achieved that goal and enjoy before working on the next one!

This is how I will thrive (my word of the year) and not just survive my year.

My 50th Birthday, My Word of the Year!


stationarybrightI did it! I turned 50. What a journey it has been. My 20’s were spent discovering what I wanted to be, my 30’s discovering what being a wife and mother is about, and my 40’s learning how to be a business owner. All of the people I have met and places I have been is the icing on the cake.

Now I am so looking forward to many more years of love and happiness with family, friends and work. I may have this number of 50 as my age but honestly I don’t see myself over the hill. Just on top of the hill.

Each year I pick a word that will help me reach my goals – my word for 2017 reflects how I am feeling about turning 50.

It is time for me to really live each day to grow and not just sit around waiting for something better to happen.  I will start making time to take care of myself and well-being. Start doing what I really want to do and make no excuses.  – Turn can’t into can!

It is time to flourish and connect more. Just live every day to share and learn about ways I can improve my life and business. I am ready to kick up a notch.

Bring it on 2017!
