Hello…. it is April 5th 2016 already. How is that even possible? I mean it was only a matter of days ago that we were ringing in this new year, and now here we are with it already 1/4 of the way over.
It is 25% done, gone, finished and now in the books as part of our past. That means that there is only 75% of the year left. Yes that is more than half, so it may seem like we have plenty of time to get to that to do list of things that we had planned to do. Or start those resolutions that we had wanted to resolve to do.
You know the ones I’m talking about, the loose weight, become healthy, save tons of money list. Well…. how’s that going for you? Are you reaching for those goals? Are you taking steps and making strides to get them done, and knock them out?
If you are, that is totally great and I am excited that you are still motivated to make 2016 your best year yet to do whatever it is you set out to do. But, if you are not one of those people…. you know rocking out those goals, then let me ask you this… why not?
Why Not You? There is still plenty of time left to get started, and you can still tackle that list, loose weight, save money, or start something like a side hustle. Sidenote: I think everyone could benefit from a side hustle. Anyhow, it is time my friends to live it now. Get motivated, find out a way to do it, and DO IT NOW.
Back in October, I posted a list of 101 things that I planned to accomplish within 1001 days. And of those 101 things listed, between Oct. 2015 to now April 2016, I have completed 14 of those 101 tasks!! I think that is pretty awesome. I still have until June 2017 to complete them all. And those 14 tasks don’t even include those I’ve already completed since starting that list either. If you want to see my list, you can check it out here.
Now, I am not bragging at all the things I’ve done, Heck, I still have a long ways to go. However, my point is, if you haven’t already, or you have let that little list of your fall to the way side, because let’s face it, life happens, then this is your wake up call to get started on your list, the year is 25% over. Make the most out the other 75% and get busy living your life towards they way you want to live it.
Don’t have list…..?
Make a list, write the steps you need to take for each one of those things to get done. Set a goal. Then plan when you will complete each step, or each piece to each step until the entire thing can be crossed off the list. I have a friend who literally posts Post-it notes all over her office wall. Guess what, some of those post-its are personal things too. They are color coded and organized or grouped by section…. it is a visual goal board for her, helps her keep her eyes on the prize…Everyday. She’s got that Eye of the tiger thing going. You get the point.
At the end of the day, if you done one thing or made yourself one step closer to your goal, then your are moving forward, if you aren’t doing anything, then where are you going? Every morning before you really wake up, take a minute or two and envision what it would be like if that goal or item was done or complete from your list? What would your life be like, how would it look? How do you need to get there? Those are your steps that you need to make.
Don’t know what that is? Then find out what your passionate about…. and run and go do that!
I am currently taking a blogging course, it is a lot of work, theres assignments and everything. Nobody really cares if I finish the course or not, nobody is making me accountable to it, but it is something I really want to do. It is something I’ve had on my list to do for years, so this year I’m learning all that I can about and doing it and I am absolutely loving it. I find the whole blogging thing to be very intriguing. I’m pretty sure I could talk to anyone about until they were blue in the face, and then purple, and even pink. I really want to experiment with it and see how far I can go. Its a goal of mine, and I’m working on it the remainder of this year.
Do you have a goal you want to reach? What goal are you currently working on? Leave me a comment and let me know. If you need help with a goal, let me know about that too. I’d love to help you out, or possible connect you with someone who could help you reach that goal.
