Welcome to PowerSheets Prep Week! The Cultivate Team has been counting down the days and dreaming up ways we can encourage the Cultivate family during our PowerSheets Prep Work, and let me tell you, we have lots of fun things up our sleeves for the week!
Before we get started, I want to answer the most frequently asked question we’ve gotten over the past few weeks: Why are we starting now instead of after Christmas?
Think about the week between Christmas and New Year’s last year. Do you remember what you did? Do you remember how you felt? If you’re anything like me, I’d bet that it was a blur. The aftermath of the Christmas holiday and the anticipation of a New Year was likely on the front of your brain and you were either in rest mode or get all-the-things finished mode.
If you were like me, you likely exhaled for the first time since Halloween, soaking in the satisfaction of everything you accomplished or dwelling on what you could have done better. Those are all very real emotions, but they don't make that prime time for reflecting on the year and looking ahead, do they?
Others might believe in quick fixes, but around here, we embrace the little by little progress. By spending this week working through the PowerSheets Prep Work together, we’re going to start planting the seeds now for the good things we want to grow in 2018.
We are so excited to see your January Tending List, but in order to get there, we've got some work to do. The soil is ready to be tended, and we’re going to grow some good goals together. Others wait for perfection before digging in but we’re going to roll up our sleeves and get to work. We don’t wait for the perfect circumstances or perfect handwriting to dig in. Cultivators get their hands dirty and dig in right where they are.
But don't worry, this is going to be a lot of fun!
We're starting now, so that you'll have everything you need when it comes time to dig in! Whether you're jumping into the Prep Work today with us, have already gotten started, or know your PowerSheets will be waiting under the Christmas tree for you, everything you need will be right here on the Cultivate blog (yes, including Instagram stories!)
Over the course of this week, we’re going to take what might seem like a complex process and walk you through it. The PowerSheets Prep Work has instructions on each worksheet for you to get started (it’s like having a coach in your back-pocket), but the Cultivate Team wants to take it one step further and share our progress with you. Our entire team will be sharing our personal PowerSheets Prep Work on Instagram stories this week, so be sure to follow along!
This isn't a one-sided conversation though. We want to hear from you, too! Use the hashtag #PowerSheets and #PowerSheetsPrepWeek to share your PowerSheets Prep Work progress with us on Instagram. One lucky winner will win a FREE 30-minute personal coaching call with Lara. Lara doesn't offer individual coaching sessions (she hosts the MTH Conference every year instead), so this is an extra special giveaway. We'll choose one winner on Monday, December 11th. Remember, you must use the #PowerSheets hashtag and your profile must be public to be entered to win. There are no limits to number of entries, so share as often as you'd like! She can't wait to chat through PowerSheets goals with one of you!
Lara and some of the Cultivate Team share everything you can expect during PowerSheets Prep Week!
Join Lara this Thursday for How to Set up Your 2018 PowerSheets webinar. She'll be walking through the PowerSheets Prep section of the 2018 PowerSheets and showing you how to get organized for the new year, make your goals happen, and live intentionally in the new year. We can't wait to see you! if you can't join live, a replay will be available for all those who sign up.
Your turn! Leave a comment and let us know if you have your PowerSheets in hand and are planning to tune in this week! Introduce yourself. Tell us where you live! I'd love to see how many friends we'll be spending time with this week! We'll choose one lucky winner to win a $25 Cultivate Shop gift card!
Don’t have your PowerSheets Goal Planner yet? Now is the perfect time to dig in! Order yours today, and we’ll get it in your hands in a jiffy. While you wait for your order to arrive, you can follow along with a notebook, or you can come back to the Cultivate blog (where everything will live, including Instagram stories!) and get started when you finally have PowerSheets in hand!
