Hello friends and Happy New Year! Are you ready to kick 2021 in the ba-donk and achieve some serious goals!? I know I am! What is it about goal setting that always makes me feel like a bad bish? Well let's break it down:
Goal Setting Benefits:
Gives you clarity in what you'd like to accomplish (you know EXACTLY what you want to do!)
Allows you to prioritize what is most important (it's not always what you like to do best... ask me how much I like watermarking every...single...photo for instagram *rolls eyes dramatically*)
Makes it easier to use your time effectively (seriously, stop wasting your time! It's very valuable!)
Allows you to utilize your resources effectively and strategically (No need for 50 million trips to the craft store... especially when I know you're leaving with more than the card stock you went in for)
Gives a sense of accomplishment when achieved (if you don't love crossing things off your goals list when you achieve them, you're either lying, or you just need prettier pens in your life)
"if you don't love crossing things off your goals list when you achieve them, you're either lying, or you just need prettier pens in your life"
So What Happens If You Don't Achieve Your Goals?
Well, 2020 was a prime example of "Not Achieving" my goals. At first when I looked at my list, I got really down on myself and felt defeated. Then, something clicked; I could either let my lack of achievement send me spiralling, or I could use it as fuel to light a fire under me for this year.
Setting New Goals
When it comes time to set new goals, I encourage you reevaluate your old ones first. You can add the same goal that you weren't able to accomplish previously (I promise the goal police will not hunt you down for this). Feel free to adjust some of your previous unachieved goals, to make them more realistic. You may even need to abandon the goals that are no longer important to you, and that's OKAY! Whatever you do, give yourself grace in the process.
Let's Make a Promise to Each Other!
Okay so this is going to sound uber cheesy, but hear me out... Let's promise each other that we are going to set goals for 2021. Like actually sit down, and write them out! They don't have to be huge life changing goals, but goals nonetheless. Let's also promise each other that we are going to use our unachieved goals as fuel for our "motivation fire". Sound good!? Okay perfect! I'm going to write mine out right now, so go find a cute pen and get writing! I hope you have a super awesome day, that's all I'm gonna say! Byeeeee!
