2015: A Practical Strategy for going after your Goals

Dream Big Header.jpgI read a stat the other day that blew my mind, you ready for it? We increase the likely hood of reaching our goals by 42% if we simply write them down.
That’s it.
Just write them down! Even if we never look at that piece of paper again. Mind. Blown.
Currently, we are just about a month into this new year and right about now is when most people start abandoning the goals they set up for themselves January 1st.
But guess what, Don’t Do That! 🙂

Michael Hyatt says,”Since our goals represent the things that matter most to us, shouldn’t we fight for them?”

Yes, yes we should. So feel free to pull back and re-evaluate, but don’t jump ship all together. (She said preaching to the choir 😉 )
In an effort today to help us all get our focus back, I invited my incredibly motivating and ridiculously good looking husband over as a guest blogger. Yay. He’s here to give us a practical strategy for actually achieving those goals you set out for yourself. 🙂 Win. Take it away babe…

No Small Life


What are you willing to do to live a life worth celebrating this year??

Are you willing to work hard?

Are you willing to be decisive?

Are you willing to formulate a strategy for success?

Someone once told me that the difference between a dream and a vision is a plan.  Everyone is capable of day-dreaming.  Everyone is capable of dreaming big dreams.  The way a dream becomes reality however, is by having a strategic plan.  Owning your own business is a great dream, but unless it has tangible, measurable goals along the way, that dream will never become reality.  A detailed strategic plan allows us to achieve our goals.

 “Little details don’t make little differences they make all of the difference. “

I am going to give you a few simple ways you can start working toward your dream.

  1. Define your dream on paper

What is the dream? …

  1. I’m making a list immediately. 42 % is a huge difference.


  2. I knew there was a reason to write goals down, but I need to find the paper I wrote them on, lol
