Happy New Year!
Our family sat down and discussed goals together this year. We had so much snow and cold weather that family time has been at a premium! : ) We discussed what we wanted to see happen this year and asked each other questions, dug deeper, and got excited about what could be accomplished. Then we each wrote our personal goals down. My 10-year old, Olivia, typed her goals out, printed them, and then posted them on her bulletin board in her room. Here is the funny thing. I see those goals every time I kiss her goodnight and it reminds me of ways I can help her achieve her goals or get involved with her success. Today I realized that my goals weren’t even printed out. Yikes! That made me wonder how many of us create plans and never even look at them.
Many people set goals, make resolutions, or decide that “this year will be different.” I know. We all do it. We create grandiose plans while trying to sound super intelligent to colleagues, co-workers, and family. Yes we are going to make it happen! We are going to change our world and we have a whole new 365 days to do it. Well just 2 weeks ago we started this brand new year. What have you actually done to get started? Have you acted on these personal promises in any way? Or have you forgotten them already?
I want you to succeed and win in 2014! I believe you can do it too. But this will not happen if you don’t have a vision for what you want and make plans to see it through to the finish line. Right now I want you to write out your goals if you haven’t done so already. Print them out. Then share them. Share your goals and desires with someone who can help you get it done. Share them with someone who will be inspired (like your kids). Share your goals so that they have a voice, get you excited, and move you to action!
If your goal is financial, I want to hear from you! Let me know what you intend to do in 2014 and I will check in periodically to make sure you are on track. Accountability partners help you get further faster.
