Just Do It!

How often do you try to accomplish something? Perhaps weight loss, exercising more, getting organized, spending more time with the kids/pets, nixing the smoking habit, saving more/spending less or something business related?  Do you ever give up and walk away from the new idea saying "well at least I tried?"
I believe it is important to try new things and not avoid starting a new project or diet just because you don't want to fail. ....but here is an interesting perspective... Dr. Steven Gundry (a wellness team expert for Jillian Michaels) has made a very interesting point in his post..about Not trying.  He is discussing his ideas on becoming healthy/losing weight BUT his point could be applied to anything in your life even your business.

Planning or Dreaming?

A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Dream
(unknown author..but it says a lot)

So...are you planning or just dreaming?

If you own your own business or are thinking about it, I highly recommend a quick visit to HappyLife by Zu-Li. As a business owner myself, I took her advise and made a business 2010 goal list of 10....which spilled over to more like 14. (lol) But it felt good to get it down on paper and begin the change from dreams to planned out goals.

One goal for this year on my list is to blog more (surprise, surprise, right??). If that is on your list too, you should check out this article about 100+ blogging ideas posted by Lisa Barone.

Whose running the show?

Welcome to 2010! We hope every one's new year has started off great.
Are you still getting used to writing 2010 on all your paperwork or are you one of those people that will continue to absentmindedly write 2009 for the next 6 months on every check you write? I came across a great article from dollar stretcher.com about setting and achieving goals. (Perhaps the first one should be to remember that it is now 2010...lol).

Do you find yourself sitting around waiting for life to happen to you or are you planning, setting goals and heading towards the things you want to achieve in life? Whether your goals include family, financial, getting organized, traveling or millions of other ideas, a vision board may help you reach them. Need a little help getting started?
