Routine and goals

Happy Wednesday!! 

Hope everyone's holiday season has been great!!  Mine has been a blast so far, looking forward to New Years Eve and a whole new year of goals!! 

Yes, I know, that really sounds like resolutions and I am not really one to do that. WHY? Because I feel if we want to start something, we start it now. Why wait till that date out there in the future to do what we want and what we CAN! 

It's not that I don't believe in resolutions, goals and making new starts. My life right now would be a mess without the chance to make new starts. I love listing goals, making vision boards and assessing where I am in life and where I feel called to go and be. So for me, it's about a FOCUS on the path ahead, NOT about a list of 3-5 new little things that I am going to start on a day next week. 

This coming year is going to be different than any other year, MACK is in my life and really, he's here to stay, so the decisions and ambitions I am thinking about now involve him as well. Granted, much of my own goals are personal and don't directly impact him personally, but they will impact his life. I am hoping he wants to do this with me even, write goals and do a vision board!!  

Last year my vision board looked like this: Simple, big picture items and direction!!

ALSO, every year I write goals down on a little piece of paper: BIG ONES, little ones, outlandish ones, ones I haven't achieved yet, ones I have been working on for a long time, ones I have wanted and dreamt of, EVERYTHING.  Then, I turn it over, face down and place it on my fridge. Usually I forget about it till midway through the year when I turn it around and look at it. WOW, sometimes I am just blown away by the fact that I often meet a lot of those goals, or have at least take steps to them. 

You are 70% more likely to achieve a goal 
when you write it down! 

So what would YOU write down and tuck away for this year??? Don't forget to also keep your current goals, your ACTION ITEMS and steps to big goals close to you and where you can see them daily! I even know friends who frame them!!  

What are you aiming for in 2012??
