Where Your Dreams are Born and Grow into Goals
August 12, 2016
Today I want to take you beyond scheduling soccer practice, and what’s for dinner.
What about you?
Are you scheduling in time for you?
A bubble bath, a massage? Those are fantastic, but don't forget about your goals and dreams.
If you are new to goal setting, you may be interested in how I achieve my goals.
And as a busy mom of 6 you may think that I don’t have time for myself, but I make sure that I do, even if it’s only a 15 mins task one day or while the water boils for supper another, making progress every day gets me that much closer.
If you never start, you’ll never get there!
So where do I actually begin?
With a dream! A flitty, happy thing covered in fairy dust!
Then I write that down.
Here, I’ve used my long term goal book from Planner Perfect. I’m usually not quite ready to begin working towards this dream at the time when I first write it down, so I’ll let it simmer.
As the ideas of how I want to achieve this dream come to me, I’ll write those down too. Soon enough, I’m feeling ready and I’ll attach a goal to this and then decide on the steps I need to take to achieve this goal and I’ll schedule those into my days. Then I decorate it :D
I used lots of fun goodies from my July Hip Kit Club kits to decorate this particular goal :D
This planner page is my dream and intention for the month of August, of course it won’t be complete by the end of the month, but by chugging away at it everyday, I’ll get closer and closer to my goal and create a habit going into September.
I like to set my intentions for the day here, in these blank pages and use my squared off planners for tracking things like projects and tasks. I’m a lefty so I’ve always been drawn to traveller’s notebook, if you are right handed you probably won’t know that rings or coils are a nuisance to us lefties, we just can’t get our hand in close enough! You lefties feel my pain!
My new class, at Big Picture Classes, Plan Your Dream, takes you step by step through my entire process. Starting with how to Dream Big and figuring out what your dreams are in the first place, through setting goals, listing out the tasks and reviewing your process along the way.
Students, young and old, who have already begun, are excited as they start dreaming again and are motivated for the process of making these dreams come true!
It's a work at your own pace type of class, so feel free to hop in where you are, it's never too late!!
Won't you join us? Plan Your Dreams
Have fun setting your goals and happy planning!
