Being Intentional

Hope this blog find you all well.  I wanted to share about being intentional and setting goals for yourself.  We are coming up on the time of the year when people start to evaluate and make changes for the new year ahead.  I’ve never been a big resolutions at new years kind of person, I’ve always done them throughout the year.  How?  By being intentional.

First, you need a journal or somewhere you can write things down.  It is always better to be able to see your goals and dreams written out.  Flip charts are an awesome thing to use because you can stick them on the walls and always have your goals & dreams visible.  We like to map it out by doing a column for 3 months, 6 months & 9 months.  We set reasonable goals for each section and then we like to include 1 or 2 huge big dreams.  Once (or if) we complete the goals we get the satisfaction of crossing it off!  That feels so good!

Because there are 2 of us we create business goals together and then we have some quiet time to set personal goals as well.  Separating personal from business is important, especially when you own your own business.  I encourage people to find what works for them.  Get on your goal setting today – even if it’s for the end of the month!  Finish 2018 strong!  Also, don’t get discouraged if you set goals on your 3/6/9 months that don’t happen.  Keep those sheets and let them help you determine your next 3/6/9 goals!  We have tons of sheets we’ve saved over the past year and we love looking over to see how far we’ve come.

Bottom line, you can do it – but you have to want it, and you have to start somewhere.  This is your wake up call so get busy!
