Simple Goals Big Impact
More than half of this year is over. Have you checked in on your 2016 goals? Are you making progress on your goals, have you decided to abandon them, or have you changed them? They don’t have to be life changing to make a positive impact on your life. I have added goals to my list and I’m making headway.
One of my goals is to contact a relative or old friend that I have not seen in a while. Progress: My son, Connor, and his friend, Paco, visited one of my dear friends in Pensacola Beach over their spring break. We spent several days with my friend, Sharla, who is fortunate to live on the beach. Here is a photo of her beautiful home. We had dinner with several old friends, while we were there. My family used to live in Gulf Breeze, Florida for 5 years.
On Fathers’ Day weekend my cousin, Cassia, had an informal wedding reception for her sister, and my cousin, Darby. I have not seen these cousins in about 25 years. I am grateful I had the opportunity to spend time with them and my son met a few of his cousins for the first time….priceless.
These personal goals are meaningful to me and my family. Life is about connections and the relationships we share. It is so gratifying to achieve goals – big or small. I will share one other small goal that I achieved a few days ago. I have photos on my fireplace mantle in frames that I look at every day. Some of the photos were so old… one photo of me and my husband was taken in 2005…I look a lot older now. Anyway, I have wanted to replace these old photos with recent ones. I ordered prints online of our 2016 vacation to Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, Canada and replaced my old photos. It may seem trivial to you but it means the world to me. Here is one of the photos that I have displayed in my home.
I hope I have motivated you to act on a small goal that you have. Many of my clients have pictures sitting on the floor that they intend to hang up but never seem to get around to hanging. Projects piled high or projects started but never quite finished, adding guilt to your psyche. Just do it!
What will you accomplish this month? I would love to hear from you. Please share some of your goals with me. Let me know if I have inspired you to complete a goal or project. Let me know what organizing tips you are interested in.
