Start Now, Not Later! (Dream It, Pin It, Live It! by Terri Savelle Foy)
"The only way to get ahead is to get better. If you're not consistently improving in the most important areas, then you're not moving ahead at all". ~Terri Savelle Foy
In general, people wait until January to start a New Year's resolution. Some have different goals, and dreams, and want to go after something great. But what happens? It takes a month to figure it out, which means all of January is wasted.
What do I want?
What are your goals?
We've been going through this book for at least a month now, and we've been taking it slow, writing our goals, and setting S.M.A.R.T. goals.
You matter, you have gifts, and talents that the world needs
There are goals and things inside of you that you've been wanting to accomplish for probably years. Were there things that you remember setting for January of 2022, like New Year's resolutions? Did you accomplish them? 97% of people don't accomplish them and probably forgot about them by March.
So I want to help you understand and set some goals. We're creating vision boards this weekend, and we've already done all of the actions in this book.
This book will help guide you with action steps.
1. Start Brainstorming.
List 101 things in a notebook, write them down, and start dreaming. There's no money or time involved yet, just start dreaming. The book wants you to start dreaming.
2. Narrow Your List.
Narrow it down to 10 things that you want to accomplish in the next 12 to 18 months. We're going to choose realistic things. We're not going to something "I want to save $500,000 next year". Instead, we can say "I would like to save 10% of my income this year". Don't say "I want to lose weight". People usually say that they want to lose weight at the beginning of the year. That's great! But how much weight and by what time?
