We are well on our way into the new year.
Are you still on track to achieve your big, bold 2018 goals?
(Have you realized you maaay have bitten off more than you can chew?)
Don’t be too hard on yourself, it happens to the best of us. We get caught up in the magic of the holiday season and the possibilities of the new year. We wake up on January 1st determined, focused, and ready to take on the world…
...and we do!
We try and cram as many goals as we can into our new year plan. The only problem is, while most of us make a plan for the new year, many of us don’t think about it strategically.
(We often overestimate what we can accomplish in one year, and underestimate what we can do in three!)
That often leads to taking on too much all at once.
Instead of doing one or two things REALLY WELL, we end up trying to do way too much and either burn ourselves out or only scratch the surface of how successful we can be.
Do you want to give yourself permission to hit reset and start this year again?
LET’S DO IT!
Here are three easy steps to bring some simplicity into your 2018...
I love vision boards!
I've been making them since I was a wee one.
I got my first taste in elementary school with collages. In my teens we made them at work.
(Ask me how I "hit" my goal of saving $3000 in one day)
In my 20's I made a vision board every two years, filling a large cardboard sheet full of places I wanted to travel, things I wanted to accomplish, and fashion I wanted to wear.
In my 30's I began making smaller one-page vision boards every January filled with what I wanted to accomplish in the year to come. I focused my vision board around a single word or theme for the year.
As I grew up, I moved away from material items into how I wanted to feel year after year.
Confident. Connected. Free. Joyful. Organized. Focused.
All through the years, I've never doubted for a minute that what I put on my vision board would eventually come to be.
It's not all hocus pocus. The reasons why vision boards work is because when we put them somewhere we can see day in and day out, we can't help but be constantly visualizing what we want in our lives. Vision boards create a point of focus and drive for us.
