#52 My Top 10 Goals Setting Tips

Add a heading

It's December 23rd today! 


We have about 7 days yet to the end of  the year, and for some, the thought of throwing in the towel sounds lovely.  

"Put a fork in me. I'm done."


"It's the most wonderful time of the year."   

Well....yes and no right? 

It's definitely different.  

I love the traditions, the running around delivering gifts, the singing, the church service, the food, and the kids sitting all together in the same room for more than 5 minutes loving each other and oohing and ahhhing over each others gifts. 

It warms my mama heart. 💓

And although it may look different for each of us this year... in all the ways.  I'm wishing you a very Merry Christmas.🎄

What isn't different is my tradition of Goal Setting. 

And in this episode I cover my list of how I do it each year.  So, as your basking in the afterglow of the holiday, grab your journal and a pen, a glass of wine and maybe some soft music and dream.  


What would it feel like if...

What would it be like if...

What if I could...

You may be surprised as what comes to the paper.

And if you love it, please share it with a friend.  Tell them you were thinking of them... people love to be thought of. 😊

OH!  I'm offering a webinar - Creating Your Epic Life! 

Even on my worst days, I love my life! 

But ladies, it wasn't always like that.  

There was a time when the alarm would go off and I'd have to drag myself out of bed and through the day.

But then I learned a few things and applied them into my life. 


And I want to share them with you!

SO Let's Get This Party Started!  

(I seriously love this stuff, I hope you too!)

1. Get it Out! - Think about EVERYTHING that would be really cool, awesome, amazing that you want to do. Make sure you are incorporating all aspects of your life.  They can be little or small.  For example: I want to get my nails done.  Every month.  This may seem laughable to you.  But it's something in life I've always wanted, but never focused on.  I always thought... maybe someday.  Well, we all know, that day never comes unless you're intentional about it. 

2. What's OFF your table OR ON your table - I had a blast with this one.  (yes, I've done this exercise already and it's hanging on my wall.) What would be done, gone or finished, if you could wave that magic wand?  Or what HAS to be part of your life, no questions asked.  For some of you it might be a weekly date with your partner.  Weeks go so fast, and it's easy to stay in one week, only to have a month go by, and you're like, "Who are you?"  So, get specific.  No exceptions. 

3. What it's all worth? - Priceless, right?  But now we get more specific without going full on into the budgeting.  But what are the financial numbers you want to hit, or need to have in order to achieve the vacation, or getting the nails done.  The key here is be specific. 

4. Look Back to Move Forward - Remember, that the rearview mirror is smaller then the windshield, but both are needed to drive the car. This exercise is huge in planning.  If you had a great 2019, what worked? Why? What made it great?  What can be duplicated or grown? What can be done better? Now add that wisdom into your worksheet. 

5. Plan it out - I'm sure you've heard the saying, "Plan your work, then work your plan."  It's as easy as that.  Get out that calendar, or make your own HUGE one. (Seriously, I have 12, 8x11 sheets of paper on my walls so I can visualize my 2020 goals.) Plug in the goals and notes on the months they need to go.  You may find that some months have a little more white space.  YAY!  GOOD!  You need rest. Plan for it!  

6. What are you Going to Wear? -  You still reading?  Good.  But you're probably like, "huh?"  But stay with me.  When I'm feeling a little insecure, or outside my comfort zone like a networking or social event, I put on a kick ass outfit.  Guess what, I show up differently.  I am more confident, intentional, open for conversation and always have a better time.  The same goes for your goals.  How do you need to show up mentally, physically, emotionally?  It will be different for different aspects of your life.  For my family? I need to be intentional about making the time to listen more.  

7. Accountability - Who do you need in your tribe to help you succeed? To hold you accountable? Who can you trust in each of your areas to encourage, speak truth, pick you up, or guide you?  A friend? Colleague? Do you need to hire a coach to take you to the next level?  Hire a therapist to help navigate the emotional side of life? Reach out, find, hire or book the appointment. 

8. Let's Do This! - You can think, plan and analyze all you want.  But that won't help you achieve anythingYou gotta move.  But you can't accomplish your goals all at the same time.  In step 5 we talked about planning it out.  So what actionable items can you do NOW, so that you can see success coming your way in January? 

9. Pray or Meditate -  Now that you've done this fun exercise you probably feel like you're in complete control of your life!  (It's the most awesome feeling isn't it?) But let's be real...  Put it on your wall, or a place you'll see it every day and pray or meditate or shout it to the Universe.  I'm a faith filled woman, and I love the saying, "We make a plan and God laughs."  Yes, there are going to be curve balls thrown at us in life.  That's just part of the deal.  But we can do our part in planning our best life and work the plan. But ultimately we gotta let go and let God.  



That was a lot.  But I hope it was helpful. When you can really write these thoughts down, it's amazing what can happen!  Think BIG!  And Be Brave!  

Wait!  That was only 9.

Yup, Next week, we'll talk about step 10.  It deserves its own blog ~ it's that fun!
