Summer Goals: Why You’re Missing Out By Not Setting Them

Will you sit with me while I tell you a brutal truth? You accomplish 0% of the goals you never start! You can't make progress on something you don't even start.

That dream job you want? You can't be considered if you don't even apply.

That half marathon you want to run? You can't run 13 miles if you don't first run one.

The marriage you want to save? It needs your attention and time.

You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them. Plain and simple.

I know what you're thinking. "That's easier said than done, Jess!" or "Easy for you to say! You work for a company that teaches goal-setting!"

But here's the thing, friends. We (ME!) are not goal-setting experts. There are some months where it's sudden May 15th and our PowerSheets are blank (cough ME cough). Lara has said before that traditional goal-setting gives her the heebie jeebies, and we agree! Goals can be overwhelming when they aren't connected to what matters. They can make life busier. What we do is different; it's grace-filled goal-setting. Powerful goals–meaningful goals–simplify your life and help you take action. They help you live with intention and purpose instead of on accident. Good goals remind you that the little by little you put in each day add up to a flourishing life.

    This was exactly what I needed today. Are you planning or planting? A real eye opening moment for me. I want to have a Godly household, but am I do everything right to make that happen? Am I leading my children the way I should. I have all of the amazing devotional books, but am I doing them daily with my children? Thank you so much for today. It was as refreshing as this blog :)

    Jess, so encouraging to hear that even YOU sometimes have blank PowerSheets mid-month. I'm learning to just move forward rather than feeling guilty about past choices I can't change. Little by little works! Thanks for the encouragement. :-)
