Honestly, I have never really done a resolution. I have thought about it and new there was no way I was going to set myself up for failure. I know myself. This past year, I had a word for my business, not me or my life. I was going to be gung-ho about really trying to do this. I told people, not close friends but mutual acquaintances and I think I wrote it down somewhere to. Needless to say, I don’t 100% remember my word last year. So, that goes without saying that I failed big time on setting that word and goal.
Now that this year is coming around, I am setting a goal again with a word. You would think I learned my lesson from the previous year. I know myself and I should stick to what I have always done and let it go (I am big fan of letting some things go since being a mom of twins). Well, I got to thinking of what happened last year. Why couldn’t I get it together and stay on the ball. Where did I go wrong because I know that I am perfectly capable following through and being triumph.
This year, I think I figured out what I did wrong. I did not have plan. I had not strategic way of achieving my word that year. I was not thinking weeks or days from now. Little steps that I can take day by day and week by week to achieve what I wanted. Don’t get me wrong, I was doing things and getting some stuff done, but it could have been better. I know I could have done better.
This year, I have a word — INTENTION. I have a planner now (check out Erin Condren, people love her planner), a makeshift business planner and a brain dump notebook (just to get things out of my head and on paper because I am always trying to remember that one thing, that one idea, that one call.) So far, I am doing a lot better and told my husband and some close knit people to keep me accountable. So, here’s to my intention of being intentionally with my word this year.
If you have a word this year, tell me. How are you trying to stay on track? I would love to know. Just comment below.
