I know!! My Goal Gathering Monday post are always on Wednesdays! It just works better in my schedule.
I have mentioned before that I hate New Year’s Resolutions. They never seem to make it past January 10th. Instead of large sweeping goals, I like to break it down into smaller, attainable goals that build up to larger ones. I have been pleased with the progress I have made this year making monthly goals. So far this year, I have started a regular exercise routine, got back to better eating, established a earlier bedtime and cut down on my online time. Making small goals and giving them a deadline has given me inspiration and encouragement.
It’s a new month. Time for new goals.
My goal for this month is an example of building off smaller ones. The goal was to launch a new blog layout. Well, it didn’t happen in February, but I laid the ground work and it is happening this week!! Finally!! I have been wanting a new layout for months. But, there is a difference between wishing and doing. I finally gave myself a deadline, put it on paper and made myself do it. And it shall be done! So, my goal for this month is to start taking Overcoming Busy to the next level. My ultimate goal for this blog is to encourage others (and myself) to make time for what’s really important in life and give them the tools to do it.
This month, I want to bring other voices in for you to listen to. I want to give you new resources to draw from. I want to give you new, fresh ideas. And, we’ll start it off with a blog party!!!! Next week, Overcoming Busy will have a party to celebrate the new layout and taking our community to the next level. I have lined up five fabulous women from throughout the blogosphere who will bring you their insights on overcoming busy in our lives. You will love them!! And, what’s a party without giveaways?!?!? There will be giveaways all through the week! You will not want to miss these fabulous resources and just fun stuff that could be yours!!
This is a huge step for me and I am so excited! Come along and join the journey with me! Stay tuned the rest of the week for more details!!!
