With the holidays winding down and normal life just around
the corner, this is the time to start thinking of all the new things you want
to try, and it’s time to firm up your New Year’s Resolutions!
New Year, new you!!
But first, let me ask you…. if you’ve consistently made
New Year’s Resolutions in the past, how successful were you at keeping them?
If you’re like most people, you stay on top of your goals
for the first couple weeks, maybe even the first month, and then regular life
settles back in and you let things slip a little – until they’ve slipped
I’ve been there, too many times!
So, before you declare your new Resolutions this New Year’s
Day, read on for some tips to help set yourself up for success this time.

When it comes to planning, do you balk at writing out lists? Personally, I love lists and I make them all the time, but I know there are people who will resist making them. It’s not their thing.
I get it, I really do.
There are also times when a list just isn’t going to cut it, or there are too many different lists needed for a single project that it becomes overwhelming, and who wants that?
So, for those of you who want to set a goal and know what steps to take, all without making a list or too many lists, this creative tool is for you. Continue reading “How to have fun planning when you’re the creative type”
How many times have you decided to do something and set yourself a goal, then got overwhelmed with the things you needed to do, not knowing what to do first, second, third, and so on…. then just gave up on the whole idea altogether?
If you’ve done that, then this is for you!
I’m going to show you a very simple, very easy-to-use tool to use every time you set a goal for yourself. Continue reading “How to prioritize the steps needed to reach your goal”
The first step to creating change is knowing what you want. Knowing exactly what you want. This is key…knowing exactly what you want. We get tied up in knowing what we don’t want, but that isn’t going to help create the change we seek.
It’s like this. If you decide to take a trip but haven’t picked a destination, then you’re wandering aimlessly. Without direction. And while you’ll end up somewhere, it may not be where you want to be!
The same applies to your life, your goals, your lifestyle…. your everything.
Without knowing what you’re working towards, moving towards, you’re going through life aimlessly. And that’s very likely resulting in an unfulfilling life. In your career, your relationships, your home, your social life, in you.
So, the first step – know what you want. Read here for more on how to do that.
Now that you know what you want, it’s time to Plan. How are you going to make it happen? Continue reading “Making a plan that works”
Do you feel like you’re being pulled in too many directions? Or have so much going on that you don’t know how you’re going to get all of it done, let alone done well?
Do you feel like other people have too many demands on you, and on your time?
How often do you put the wants and needs of other people ahead of yours? The things they want you to do, ahead of the things you want to do? Continue reading “Not enough time?”
We use lists for pretty much everything. The grocery list. The list of errands. The To-Do list. The various lists used when going on vacation – now that’s a big one, and there would likely be many things forgotten if we didn’t use that one!
Back to school list. Project lists. Honey Do list, aka known as the home repairs list. Christmas shopping list. The list for Santa!
The list of lists is endless. As long as there are things to be done, there will be lists.
My all time favourite time management tool is The List. There’s something about that feeling you get when you can tick an item off or cross it off. A sense of accomplishment. Continue reading “The almighty list”
