Half way to the weekend people! You can do it!
Goal setting – two words that can strike fear into any human that wants to accomplish BIG things. Y’all, I am a planner – I’ve been told several times, just in the last week, that I am the most organized person ever. I, however, am not always a do-er. I’ve had this blog for over 6 months and this is my 7th post. I can schedule and plan all day long, but when it comes down to taking actual steps to make things happen, I get really scared. Stepping out of my zone and pushing the limits, even if it is something that I desperately want, seems like the hardest thing ever.
This is my second round with the PowerSheets, last year I used them, but not as effectively as they could have been used. I set some really big goals but my heart wasn’t connected to them. They were all things that I cared about, but not enough. This January when I sat down to take on my PowerSheets I wanted to make sure that everything I decided to go for this year really connected to my core – which is actually the point of the process.
I sat down and completed the prep work, which took me probably 3 nights of really thinking through the answers and the pages.
There are spaces in the PowerSheets where you can fill in 10 BIG goals for the first 6 months of 2015, or any 6 months of 2015 – they’re undated. One of the things I did differently this year was to not force myself to make 10 goals if I didn’t have 10 that I really felt connected to my core. So I set initially and I added one additional so far in the month of February.
Setting the goals hasn’t been at the core of my problem with achieving goals – it’s been the breaking them down and taking action, enter the Tending List. I LOVE this list, it might be my favorite part of the PowerSheets, this page allows you to breakdown your big goals into monthly, weekly, and daily goals. It has been really helpful to start to turn this planner into a do-er.
I’m sensing some big changes happening in 2015, and I am excited for it!
How do you set your goals? Do you use any tools to help you?
