What’s New on CultivateWhatMatters.com!

Welcome to the new Cultivate What Matters site! When we launched this site as a beta version last year, we were blown away by the number of people who were excited to create a profile, get into groups, and start encouraging others in their goals.

Now, we're excited to debut our latest update! Here's what's new:

1. We're Now CultivateWhatMatters.com!
If you've follow along with Lara's blog and her story, you know this name change was a long time coming! We're thrilled that we have a new home online that clearly reflects our mission. Our site is now the home to an amazing community (you guys!) and content that will help you start where you are to cultivate what's really important to you.

2. No Access Code Required.
Hooray!! Now, whether you're a PowerSheets user or not, whether you've started your next PowerSheets set or not, you'll be able to create a free online profile and start engaging with others for tips, tricks, and accountability. While you'll find that our site is largely dedicated to and reflective of the PowerSheets process, everyone is welcome to start cultivating what matters.

Plus, we now offer Facebook Login, so you have one less password to remember and can save time logging in!

3. Updated Groups Page!
One of our biggest desires for you is to be able to easily find people who share your heart and your priorities. In addition, we want to make sure we're simplifying your lives and creating features that are easy to use! Many of you are already on Facebook and have created Facebook groups for your PowerSheets friends so you can chat on a platform that is easily accessible to you. Following your lead, we decided to move all groups to Facebook! Now, you can create a Facebook group and leave a link to it on our Groups page for other members to join. Not on Facebook? We'll be keeping our main Cultivate Users Group active on CultivateWhatMatters.com for you and are looking forward to chatting with you there!

Cultivate Groups

4. PowerSheets Page
In on our continued mission to simplify your lives, we've put all of the PowerSheets resources on CultivateWhatMatters.com! You'll see a new "PowerSheets" link in your navigation that houses all of Lara's PowerSheets examples, Tending Tips, and more.

5. Updated Blog and More Content!
This is our favorite update yet! This little online space is about you. We want to share more of your stories, and give you even more resources to cultivate the things that matter most to you. In the coming weeks, you'll be hearing from us more often on this blog as we share everything from our favorite tools for productivity, to ways to personalize your PowerSheets, to interviews with people we admire. So much goodness is in store!

Happy Cultivate What Matters Week!

Yes, it's Valentine's week, but we made up another holiday that we're all pretty pumped about!

First, a few facts. Did you know February is statistically the month that gym membership attendance goes down, and fast food consumption goes up? Makes you think, doesn’t it? The forward momentum of January can leave us burned out and feeling guilty for not starting the new year as well as we had hoped. (Are you feeling that?)

Here's what happens: 50% of the US population sets goals or resolutions in January. Come February 15th, half of those people have given up or forgotten about their goals completely.

2017

But, not us.

Not you.

Not the Cultivate community.

No matter how imperfect our progress has been so far, we are not caving.

Why? We get to make a choice, and we are choosing to flip this statistic on its head together. We are Cultivating What Matters!

Here's what you can expect this week:

  • We'll be sharing what's new on the Cultivate What Matters site
  • Emily's best tips for setting goals with your significant other
  • Stories from women who have been cultivating what matters in their lives long before having PowerSheets in hands
  • The goal-setting tip I recommend more than anything else when I respond to social comments, emails or phone calls. (Here's a hint: it might surprise you!)
  • And much more!

We've written a new manifesto to remind us that intentional living is possible, and the imperfect and little by little progress that we all make together grows good things over time. Get it delivered right to your inbox!

Manifesto

Ready to get started?

  • Preorder your 2017 PowerSheetsPowerSheets preorders will ship by late May, but you can start today with Lara's Goal-Setting Series. You don't need PowerSheets in hand to cultivate what matters.
  • Follow us on social media and join the conversation this week. We'll be posting prompts and questions to get us talking about how we're taking the next step to make our little by little progress a reality!
  • Need some help getting motivated? Start here.
  • Print your Cultivate What Matters Manifesto  and hang it somewhere you will see it each and every day!
  • Eliminate the excess to make room for what matters, like the endless scrolling and comparison. Try starting with a social media-free weekend (or day). Check out our favorite tips to make this a reality!
  • Share on social media using the hashtag #CultivateWhatMatters, and tell us how you are cultivating what matters this week!

It's your turn! Are you joining us in cultivating what matters little by little this week? If so, leave us a comment and let us know!

Goal Setting Tip Number Two

How often do you start the day feeling overwhelmed by all that's swirling around in your brain? From the dry-cleaning drop-off to worrying about an upcoming work assignment to the birthday cards you have to mail this weekend, it's easy to get distracted from the one thing you are supposed to be working on! Guess what! You don't have to feel that way! We've found it can be helpful to clear the mental clutter so you can find clarity, creativity, and focus.

We believe in this so much that we incorporated this page into 2017 PowerSheets! At the beginning of your Monthly PowerSheets Prep, there is a space for you to write out all the worries, fears, stresses, and to do's that are taking up your mental and heart space! But here's the thing, you don't need PowerSheets to incorporate this into your daily or weekly routine!

If you want to incorporate this into a more regular workflow, our best advice is to find a system that works best for you! One of our editors, Emily, keeps a running To-Do list open on her computer where she writes down all the things on my mind if they are distracting her. I'm personally a big fan of a pen and paper list.

Wherever you decide to capture these thoughts, it's important to go through the list and prioritize the important ones and schedule out others that aren't as time-sensitive. Maybe you take a few minutes on Sunday evenings before beginning your work week to download all your thoughts and to do's, and schedule them in your planner! Or maybe you do it every single day! Whatever you decide to do, find a system that makes it easier for you to focus on cultivating what matters most to you!

For Valentine’s Day: The Goal Guide for Couples

We're big proponents of celebrating Valentine's Day with your spouse or partner. Not just for the box of chocolates, date nights, and candle lit dinners, but because it helps us focus on one of the things that's most important to us—a healthy relationship with your partner in life.

This Valentine's Day, take our new PowerSheets Companion Goal Guide for Couples out for a spin! We're offering free shipping on all orders of our Goal Guide for Couples through February 15 with the code LOVEBIRDS.

In celebration of Valentine's Day, work through the Goal Guide to discover how you can work together as a couple to tend to individual goals and goals you have together! As we like to say, these small seeds can grow your relationship into something stronger than an oak tree.

P.S. Need a few pointers and ideas for setting goals as a couple? Keep an eye on the blog next week—Emily will be posting about how to set goals with your significant other!

February 2017 Goals Round-Up

It's the first week of February, which means it's time to share our monthly goals round-up! If you read our 2017 Goals Round-Up, you know that I'm a big fan of reading all of your goals for the year and cheering you on!

The whole reason we changed the name of our business last year was because we knew we needed a platform to tell other people's stories–YOUR stories–and the Monthly Goals Round-Up were born!

Remember, keep sharing your goals with us each month so that we can cheer you on! The PowerSheets and Cultivate What Matters community has evolved into something bigger than we could have ever imagined–something bigger than us, and we are grateful for the opportunity to encourage each of you to cultivate what matter!

So, without further ado, here are some of YOUR February goals!

Amber's February goals are full of great ideas, especially if you're looking for a way to be more active in your work day (check out the exercise tool she uses at her desk).

We love how Heather made February 1st her January 1st, and she's sharing her 2017 goals and February goals on her blog! If you haven't firmed up your 2017 goals yet, that's okay! Head to Heather's blog for some encouragement to dig in!

Mary's commitment to sharing her monthly goals (along with her progress) is great for accountability, and it's one of the reasons we encourage friends to find a PowerSheets buddy! We particularly love that one of her February goals is to complete the Couples Companion Guide with her husband! (PS. If you want to set goals with your significant other, use the code LOVEBIRDS for free shipping on your Couples Companion Guide!)

This quote from Lynne's February goals is one of our favorite: "February just seems more gentle, more forgiving, more room to breath." Yes!

My favorite goal that Letticia accomplished was "be nice to herself." Head to her blog to read more about how she accomplished that!

I'm a big reader, so it made me giggle to see that one of Harley's daily goals for February is to stop reading after 30 minutes. As someone who has stayed up way too late reading on work nights, I can empathize with that goal! THIS is why I love PowerSheets; you have the freedom to figure out what hasn't been working for you, and then set goals to intentionally work on those.

Every single line on Rachel's February Tending List is full, and it's easy to interpret that as not leaving enough margin in her days. She considered crossing items off, but then "realized by putting my focus here on these things, I will create margin. I can confidently decline other things that try to come into my life this month if they don’t align with the goals I have set." What wonderful encouragement!

If you've posted your goals somewhere, we'd love to see them! Feel free to drop them in the comments, too–no fancy blog required! We can't wait to take a peek into what this month holds and cheer you on!
