I opened my fortune cookie and read the fortune inside. The sky’s the limit was printed on the little piece of paper. Yes, it is. A new year and the possibilities are endless. You just have to set goals and make plans to achieve them.
Easier said than done, right? Now, I don’t mean make resolutions. To me that is a throw away phrase that lacks meaning. Really, sit down and write out what you want to accomplish this year. Then begin to to set small goals to make the bigger goals happen.
Do you want to pay off your car? Learn how to sew? Become healthier? Remember the sky’s the limit but you have to have a way to get there.
In November, I purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner. I wanted to put in writing what goals I wanted to achieve. I believe that once you have physically written your goals, it is much easier to hold yourself accountable. Plus with a planner you look at them every day as well as the steps to achieving them. These steps need a time frame so you can chart your progress. Then write down the results. Whether you actually reached that goal or fell short. It needs to be documented.
You could use any planner. There are lots of free ones to download. You basically need daily and monthly pages to document your goals and results. It makes a huge difference to motivate you to keep going when there is a seen result. It will make you stick to it.
I have a printable of the sky’s the limit graphic for you to download. You can frame the print for your desk like I did. I also printed one to cut down to put inside my planner. This will be a nice reminder to keep reaching for my goals.

Are you making goals this year? What steps are you doing to achieve them?
