How to Start Cultivating 2018 Goals Now

If the number of posts I'm seeing on Instagram of your happy mail arriving is any indication of your excitement, I'd venture to say we have lots of eager PowerSheets users ready to dig in!

To kick off our PowerSheets Prep, we're hosting our second annual PowerSheets Prep Week beginning December 4th. The Cultivate team will be sharing our personal PowerSheets Prep with you, providing lots of content on the blog and newsletter list, and debuting a pretty awesome giveaway, too!

Feeling a little too impatient to wait until December 4th (that's okay; we don't blame you!)? Here are a few easy steps to help you get started cultivating what matters, right where you are!

 

PowerSheets_Get_Started

Get to know your PowerSheets. Flip through and get to know the pages where your goals will come to life over the next 12 months! Here are a few things to look for: the stickers, monthly Tending Lists, Quarterly Refresh Pages, and those Wildcard pages. Hint: Head to page 68 of your PowerSheets Goal Planner for a link to our Wildcard Library. You can start downloading and using those pages now!

Write your name on Page 5. That's right! No perfect pen or handwriting required. Sometimes writing the first words in a new book or journal can be the hardest part. Our best advice? Dig in with something simple to get your momentum going: your name. Messy, authentic handwriting is encouraged!

Join the PowerSheets community. Setting good goals is essential, and having accountability to keep making progress on those goals helps you grow them well. Join our Facebook Group to connect with fellow PowerSheets users.

Come say hi, and introduce yourself to us! There are few things we love more than meeting you and following your story! Join us for Tending List Tuesday Instagram Lives every week, and find us on Instagram and Facebook.

Read Lara's books. Both Make It Happen and Cultivate weave Lara's personal story with questions and responses for you to begin to uncover what matters most to you and begin to grow an intentional life. Grab a journal, and get to reading!

Practice systems for your 2018 PowerSheets now. For example, if you want to start color-coding your 2018 PowerSheets goals, you can start now by using some colored pencils or highlighters that you have. Start creating those habits and rhythms now so you're ready to hit the ground running when you fill our your January Tending List.

Get excited! The best is yet to come, friend! We have a great year ahead, and we're already dreaming up product ideas and resources to help you continue to uncover good goals and make those happen. We're here to be your biggest cheerleader, celebrating your victories and encouraging you through the hard times. My pom-poms are ready, and this is going to be fun!

November Goals Round-Up

Happy November, friends! Something about switching from October to November in my calendar often serves a reset for me. I haven't quite been able to pinpoint it yet, but I think it has something to with the crisp air and holidays ahead.

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 and the Monthly Goals Round-Up were born!

While we were thrilled with our 2018 PowerSheets Launch at the end of October, we also firmly believe that we still have plenty of time to accomplish our 2017 goals and finish the year strong. I can't waitt o share these ladies' goals for November, and I hope it encourages you to continue to make progress!

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

Knowing the excitement for her wedding at the end of September would trickle October, I loved reading how Chelsey kept her October goals simple to give herself margin. And guess what? She accomplished most of them! Remember to give yourself breathing room in months that are a bit busier than usual!

"I feel good about these daily goals. None of them were perfectly completed, but that’s totally okay because the point isn’t to be perfect. The point is to make progress, and I definitely believe I did." YES! Rachel nailed it, and it's going to be so fun to cheer her on in November!

Mary's November goals are a remind that the holidays are approaching, and we can intentionally choose to prepare now so that we don't feel frazzled come mid-December!

Use the perforation on your PowerSheets Tending List, and hang it somewhere you'll see it every day! Sarah's November goals (complete with the cutest stickers!) are hung where she'll see them every day!

There's no better time than the end of the year to start thinking about goals with your significant other, so I loved seeing "Refresh Couples Goals" as one of Amanda's November goals.

If it were acceptable, I'd copy every single one of Kate's November goals for the month. More importantly, I love her heart behind why she chose what she chose!

I know there are many of you that are ready to bust open your 2018 PowerSheets and get to work, but Diana's reminder that we still have 60 days left in the year is exactly what I needed to hear! I've tucked my 2018 PowerSheets away, and I'm focusing on finishing strong!

How to Color-Code Your PowerSheets Goals

Since releasing our first edition of our Cultivate What Matters Sticker Book last fall, we've heard from countless PowerSheets users who have used stickers to make goal-setting more intentional and fun!

If you've been following Lara's PowerSheets goals over the past few months, you've likely noticed Lara's colored blocks and dots on her PowerSheets and Monthly Tending Lists. She's been trying out a new color-coding system that our team brainstormed months ago for our brand new Goal Setting Sticker Book, and we're so excited to see many of you incorporate it into your PowerSheets!

We've gotten lots of questions about how the new color-coding system works, and I have the best news for you: it's not complicated at all! We'll share a few tips we have for you below, but everything you need (and more!) to get started is in the Goal Setting Sticker Book!

Goal_Color_Coding

Assign each of your yearly goals a color. Use the flags in the beginning of your sticker book to give each of your yearly goals an assigned color.

Use the color-coding dots to label your Tending List. As you fill our your Tending List each month, assign each of your monthly, weekly, and daily goals a colored dot sticker that coordinates with the appropriate yearly goal. Doing this helps you make sure your Tending List is filled with priorities and doesn't just become a to-do list. If there's a goal that doesn't fall into a particular yearly goal, ask yourself if it's relevant. You can even use our favorite pens to write out the goals for more color-coding!

Color_Code_Goals

Goal-related tasks remind you of your priorities at a glance, so that you can easily see where you are focusing your time and energy each month.

Give yourself grace. There might be some months where all your Tending List goals are one or two colors, and that's okay! Some months you'll need to put your head down and focus on one goal in particular, and it's okay for your Tending List to be one or two colors.

Don't stop at your PowerSheets. Use the color-coding system in other areas of your life! If you're a paper planner girl, you can use the colored dot stickers in your planner to help you see where you're spending your time. Ready to tackle that email inbox? Start assigning out labels with coordinating colors. The you can integrate products and systems you are already using on a daily basis, the better off you'll be!

Be willing (and eager) to re-evaluate your goals and what's working. Anytime you begin to implement new rhythms and routines, it's important to give yourself a bit of breathing room as you adjust. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither are new systems for your life! Remind yourself that little by little progress adds up, and celebrate the progress you are making!

 

Are you ready to start color-coding your PowerSheets goals with us? It's not too late to order your PowerSheets Goal Planner and Goal Setting Sticker Book today!

Please note: We're unable to adjust previous orders that have been placed. If you've already placed an order in the Cultivate Shop and would like to purchase the sticker book, we encourage you to place an additional order.

2018 PowerSheets are HERE

Where are you right now?

Maybe you're lying in bed, having pressed your snooze button for the third time this morning.

Maybe you're already sitting at your computer desk, surrounded by piles of paperwork and a growing to-do list.

Maybe you're sitting on the living room floor, surrounded by a week's worth of laundry that needs to be folded.

Wherever you are, I'd venture to say you've wondered to yourself, "There has to be something more than this."

We've all been there.

What if it could be different? What would you think if I told you there was a different path?

A path in which you spent your days cultivating what matters most in your life, from the exact spot you're sitting.

It's not about doing more or being more. It's not about striving for perfect, or having it all together. It's about growing the right things. It's about growing what you've been given right where you are. It's about growing what lasts longer than you. That's what matters. And we want to help you get there.

We created the PowerSheets Goal Planner to help women uncover purpose-filled goals and do something about them.

2018_PowerSheets

PowerSheets are perfect for women in every stage of life, every role, and every season. PowerSheets work, and you're going to feel the impact right away if you're faithful to the process. PowerSheets will help you prioritize with confidence, giving you more time for what's truly important in your life.

Because at the end of the day, isn't time what you need most?

Less time spent scrolling and comparing. More time spent walking in your unique path.

Less time saying "yes" without thinking about boundaries. More time spent with the people who you love.

The PowerSheets Goal Planner is more than just a planner; it's a life system that works, and thousands of women across the world have accomplished goals with their PowerSheets using our three-part system:

  • PowerSheets Prep Work: the first 35 pages help you uncover your unique goals and what matters most to you
  • Intentional Action Plans: step-by-step action plan pages for each of your goals with S.M.A.R.T. starting steps
  • Monthly Tending Pages: Tending pages to help you live our your goals and actions plans each month!

It includes a year's worth of goal planning and tending and built-in accountability.

One of my 2017 PowerSheets goals is to make wise financial decisions, and while I've made so much progress, I still have a long way to go (which is good because we still have 2.5 months left in 2017!). On that note, I want to ask you a question that's been convicting me recently when it comes to my finances.

When is the last time you spent $100? Me? I bought a red dress and a sweater on Poshmark. Are they lovely? Absolutely. Will they help me cultivate good goals and live a life of purpose and intention? Nope.

Hear me out: there is nothing wrong with spending money on things like clothing or home decor or date nights. But like all things in life, priorities are important. In budgeting, you have to tell your money where you want it to go, or it will go wherever it wants to go (And Dave Ramsey fans out there?). And I firmly believe the same is true for your time.

2018 PowerSheets are an investment in yourself and your dreams, and in turn, an investment in your relationship with those who matter most to you. Setting good goals “cultivated goals" can have a ripple effect on your family, your children, your friend, your coworkers. You have the potential to impact your life, right where you are, starting today.

Maybe you're happy where you are right now, or maybe you're already feeling overwhelmed about starting fresh and you're scared. Let us remind you that peonies grow through the dirt, and so do we. Little by little progress takes time, but it adds up. Lara and the Cultivate Team are going to walk you through every step of the process from your Prep Work to setting your goals to checking in on your Tending List each week. You are not doing this alone.

Will you join us? Order your 2018 PowerSheets One-Year Goal Planner today.

Still have questions? We're here to answer them! Head to our FAQ page and join our FREE live class today at Noon ET for an inside look at how PowerSheets work. If you can't join live, a free replay will be available.

One final note: you don't have to have PowerSheets to cultivate what matters in your life. Yes, we created beautiful and intentional products, but at the end of the day, we know our sales numbers aren't important. Our heart of hearts is that today serves as a turning point in your unique life. That October 25th, 2017 will forever be the day you made the decision to stop following others' paths and start cultivating your unique purpose whether you have PowerSheets in your hands or not.

Oh, and welcome to the Cultivate family, friend! We are so grateful to be on this journey with you!
