Are you taking two steps forward and three steps backwards?

Recently, for whatever reason, life has stepped it up a notch… and, I’m struggling to keep up. I write to-do lists and work hard to get the work done, and I do get a lot of work done, however, it just doesn’t seem to be enough. This line of thought sent me back to my New Years Goals.

Many of you may remember that I set goals for myself in four facets of my life – Spiritual, Physical, Home, Business. And, just four months later I am happy to report that I have made some progress – two steps forward and three steps backwards. Actually of the four facets, I seem to be doing the best in business, and completely stagnant when it comes to the physical. I’m exercising but just not losing any weight.

Every year during the month of December I try to imagine what my life is going to look like towards the end of the next year. Usually I envision myself much farther down the road than what happens in reality, but I live with the knowledge that if you don’t imagine and plan for results, success will never happen.

So, Now What?

It’s time to review New Years goals, and step up efforts to accomplish these goals before the end of the year. This means that I need to:

  • Make lists of tasks to-do that will further facilitate the accomplishment of these goals
  • Develop personal habits that further my ability to meet these goals
  • Budget my time in order to move forward faster and more efficiently

What’s the point?

Somebody said; “There are three types of people in this world, those that DO, those that watch the DOers Do, and those that haven’t got a clue.” I like to think that I am in the DOers category, and setting goals helps keep me ‘on-track’.
