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!

Cultivate Blog

We are always making improvements so that this site functions and serves you better! However, if you experience any bugs, or have suggestions for us, please feel free to post them to our Technical Feedback Form! We're so excited you're here with us and can't wait to share more!

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!

PowerSheets in Person: Join Us at Making Things Happen!

By now you probably know that 2017 PowerSheets are sold out (for the time being - we'll have more in stock in June to help you finish the year strong!).

If you're one of our many friends who missed out on nabbing a set to start the year, or even if you're one of our many friends who DID get a set, we are excited to tell you about another option available to you coming up in just a few weeks.

While they're not exactly the same (obviously, the price point is quite different!), we truly believe that the experience of attending the Making Things Happen Intensive is similar to walking into a set of PowerSheets - but far, far better! We often describe PowerSheets as a guided coaching tool, but at MTH, you actually DO have a guide and a coach: Lara Casey herself. As I'm sure you can imagine, being in the room with Lara, our amazing encouragers, and dozens of other women who are as eager for personal and business renewal as you for two whole days is a powerful catalyst to uncover your goals and take action on them.

What can you expect from Making Things Happen? It often defies explanation, because it's truly one of those "you get out of it what you put into it" experiences, and differs depending on where you are in life, but here's an overview of our two days together:

Making-Things-Happen-Topics

You can read SO much more about Making Things Happen, as well as testimonials from our most recent class of attendees, here. If you'd like to learn more, we'd also encourage you to sign up for our upcoming webinar with Lara and a few MTH alums next Wednesday, where you can ask questions and see if the experience might be right for you.

And friends, if you're on the fence, now is the time. For the last few years, we've held Making Things Happen intensives twice a year (once in the spring, and once in the fall). In 2017, we've decided to hold it just once–this March 20-21 in Chapel Hill, NC. We would LOVE to see you there, and payment plans are available to make it happen. Register here.

Questions? Leave a comment below and we'll happily answer them, and don't forget to sign up for next week's webinar!

What’s Different in the 2017 PowerSheets

Each year that we redesign the PowerSheets, we take a lot of things into consideration. We listen to all of the feedback that you've given us, take notes on what we love and what we'd change in our own personal PowerSheets, and beyond that, we observe what your everyday lives look like when we engage in one-on-one conversations with you. We hope that the changes to our PowerSheets not only help you dive deeper into what you're passionate about, but function better in your everyday life.

So, here's a look at what we changed in 2017!

PowerSheets Flexible Cover

Synthetic Cover and Smaller Size
Many of you take your PowerSheets with you wherever you go, work on them at the kitchen table or with your kids, and constantly flip back and forth. We made our 2017 cover out of a durable synthetic material so that it's still flexible, but won't fray at the edges or corners. Another bonus to this new cover material? It's waterproof!

We also rounded out the corners so they're less likely to bend, and we made the entire workbook an inch smaller so it's easier to take wherever you go.

More Brainstorming Pages
This is personally my favorite part of the 2017 PowerSheets. While we make improvements each year to make the set more durable and functional for your lifestyle, you know the real magic happens on the inside. More brainstorming pages and a refined process mean that you get to release your thoughts on paper at more opportune times and in more helpful ways. Then, the prep work helps you untangle some of those thoughts so you can see patterns and highlights.

PowerSheets-Tending-List

Perforated Tending List
All of our 2017 PowerSheets now come in spiral bound form, but we know so many of you love being able to take out your Tending List and post them wherever is best for you—on the fridge, on a clipboard, or at your desk. Now, there's an easy perforation on every Tending List that allows you to do this! Want to add your Tending List back to your PowerSheets when the month is over? We like to tape them back in with washi tape, or a paper clip.

Monthly Progress Bars
So often in the past, we would read over our monthly goals on our Tending List and think to ourselves, "I made huge progress on that this week, but it's not completely done yet." We want to celebrate more of the good progress you make each month! Color in the Progress Bar as you tend to your monthly goals. When it's completely colored in, celebrate again!

PowerSheets Stickers

More Stickers!
This year, each PowerSheets set comes with two pages of stickers—that's over 200 stickers in each set of PowerSheets! We made them even more colorful than before, kept some of your favorites, and increased some of the most-used stickers (like check marks, celebration stickers, and flags). Even better? We couldn't stop there, so we made a Sticker Book with an additional 824 stickers!!

Tell us what you love about the new 2017 version in the comments below!

Want to dive into meaningful goal setting? Our 2017 PowerSheets Six-Month Goal Planners are available for preorder in our shop and will ship in late May—just in time to finish the year well.

Gift 2017 PowerSheets to a Friend!

Over the past year, one of my favorite parts of my jobs has been getting to know each of you! Whether I'm putting a face to a name in our PowerSheets Group, chatting with you over the phone, or hugging you in person at the MTH Conference (please come to Chapel Hill, and hug me the whole Cultivate team this March!), I am exceedingly grateful for the privilege of hearing–and sharing–your individual stories! It's a true joy to hear about how our products are encouraging you to uncover what matters most and cultivate the most important things in your lives.

While I love hearing your stories, I also know that there is another group of stories that I don't always get to hear–stories of women who would love a set of PowerSheets, but for one reason or another, are unable to invest in themselves in their current season. Our heart behind our entire business is getting these products into the hands of women (and men!) around the world.

When processing inventory for our orders each year, we hold back a small number of PowerSheets for any necessary reshipments. Now that the dust has settled, we have found an extremely small stash of One-Year Dated PowerSheets Workbooks. The team spent a few hours in a Cultivate team meeting earlier this week trying to decide what to do with these leftover Workbooks, and we came up with a great idea, inspired by a recent giveaway our friends at Emily Ley hosted in December. We've decided to follow along in their footsteps!

If you love your PowerSheets and would like to nominate a friend to receive a set of PowerSheets of her very own, we would love to hear your nomination. We'll choose a select amount of nominated women (or men!) to receive a sold out One-Year PowerSheets Workbook, and we'll also give the nominee a special discount code for their next purchase from the Cultivate Shop!

We are thrilled to partner with you to get PowerSheets in the hands of some of the most deserving women in your lives!

All nominations must be submitted by midnight EST on Sunday, January 22. U.S. residents only, please. We will communicate directly with the chosen recipients, so please, no emails :)
