Another new month is upon us. One-fourth of the year is gone with three-fourths remaining. How are your goals and dreams for this
new year shaping up? Are you still focused on the end? How are you staying on task? Maybe you aren’t still on task.
It’s not too late!
There are nine more months to go in this year. That’s over 270 days. That’s over 6,480 hours which is over 388,800 minutes! If you really want to accomplish something this year, you WILL find a way.
If you don’t know how you are doing with your goals, do they need to be clearer? Are they specific, measurable, attainable, reasonable and bound by time? (S.M.A.R.T.)
Here are mine: I want to sell at least 24 or more cookbooks this year (I’ve sold 6 in the last 5 days!). I want to have two paid speaking gigs (my first one will be in two weeks). I want to write 1 or 2 ebooks/books (I’m about 1/3 there on two manuscripts). I want to post twice a week on my blog. (almost on schedule) Fly to India to be with my daughter when she has her first baby. (baby is due in August)
Be encouraged. You CAN do what you strive to do.
So many things happen that are out of our control, but plenty of things are within our control. Take personal responsibility for what you want to achieve and not wait for someone else to make it happen. No one else cares as much as you do about what you want to accomplish. Don’t play the victim, be the victor.
Maybe you are on schedule with your goals. Whoop, whoop! Maybe you are making strides but a bit behind….still celebrate. Maybe one-fourth of the year has vanished and you haven’t stayed on task…celebrate that you still have three-fourths of the year to go and get going. Celebrate that you are alive and have today and tomorrow and 270 days more to focus and get things done.
A new month, a fresh start! Share with us how you are doing and how you are staying the course. Any tips or words of encouragement?
Remember, “mile by mile it’s a trial, yard by yard it’s hard, but inch by inch it’s a cinch.”
