Will you sit with me whileÂ I tell you a brutal truth? You accomplish 0% of theÂ goalsÂ you never start!Â You can't make progress on something you don't even start.
ThatÂ dreamÂ job you want? You can't be considered if you don't even apply.
That half marathon you want to run?Â You can'tÂ run 13 miles if you don't first run one.
The marriage you want to save? ItÂ needs your attention and time.
You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them.Â 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 teachesÂ 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.
Our Fruitful Summer bundle isÂ available in our shop if you want accountability in your goals!
Doesn't that sound much better? Like something you can get behind? If so (and we sure hope so!), I have a two nextÂ steps for you. Remember,Â you accomplish 0% of the goals you never start!
