Hello New Year! I can’t believe it is already 2017! Of course, like most of us, all I can think about is setting new goals for the year and reflecting on 2016. The last few months I’ve majorly slacked on my creativity, journaling, and this blog because life happens. I’m pregnant and I’ve got a bun in the oven that’s making me SUPER sick! I am 5 months pregnant now and FINALLY getting a little relief from this little peanut. Wooo Hoo. It feels so good to be almost back to my old self!
Now that I am feeling saucy and creative, I’ve got plenty of goals in mind for the new year. I’ve immersed myself into some of my favorite creative planning books along with a new one called “Your Best Year 2017: Productivity Workbook and Creative Business Planner” by Lisa Jacobs. I’ve heard great things about this creative planner from fellow bloggers and just had to get my hands on it. So far I’m loving it. My main focus this year will be directed towards improving my business/blog and getting a little bit more organized in that regard.
I also want to motivate other creative entrepreneurs and share my creative journey as a business owner in hopes you can learn something. That’s the one thing I’m constantly searching for from other successful bloggers…..how did they do it? What did they do to get to where they are today? I feel like it is kind of a hidden secret. I mean, I want to know the products they use, marketing strategies, the workshops they’ve taken, and all the tips and tricks along the way. Even the horrible mistakes. I want to create a road map of my journey to help you with yours.
Some other changes I’d like to make are posting on a consistent basis. I am very guilty of posting on a whim when I feel motivated. Does anyone else have that problem? I surely can’t be the only one!
I think I am going to get rid of the monthly journal prompts for now just because I’m kind of over it. Don’t get me wrong. I still think journal prompts are great. But I feel like doing something a little bit different. Instead of the monthly journal prompts for each day of the month, I’ll do ONE journal prompt for the month along with a journal spread to inspire you.
Okay. Okay. Enough about me and my goals. I want to hear about you and your goals for 2017! Lets make 2017 great!
My challenge for you is setting five goals that you can accomplish in the next three months. Then creating an action plan for those goals. Make sure you set S.M.A.R.T goals.
Please share some of your goals with me in the comments! Would love to hear them.
