How To Set Good Goals for 2017

How To Set Good Goals for 2017

We don’t do traditional pressure-filled, do-it-all goal setting around here. We uncover intentional, less-is-more goals. This is grace-filled goal setting. We set “good goals.”

Good goals are about stewarding what you’ve been given well: your relationships, your money, your possessions, your work, your children, your home, your health, and your time. A little intentional forethought goes a long way!

We are humbled to say we are sold out of both our One-Year and Six-Month PowerSheets, but that doesn’t mean you can’t set intentional goals for the year! Lara Casey shared her Sixth Annual Goal-Setting Series on her blog last week, and it’s the perfect place to get started on cultivating your most intentional year yet! Grab a journal (we recommend the Make It Happen Journal from the shop!), and join Lara as she walks you through her Personal PowerSheets Prep Work for 2017!

We are completely sold out of our 2017 PowerSheets, and we are looking into getting a small batch of Six-Month #PowerSheets for the second half of the year, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait! Use Lara’s Goal-Setting Series to dig in right now. There is nothing magical about January 1st (or June 1st for that matter!)

Do you need the PowerSheets and Make It Happen book to have an intentional year? No. You don’t need anything to live this life well. They are great tools if you choose to use them, but if you only do this blog series, and use scrap paper to write your answers, that’s great too. Use what you have! If you are someone who has been stuck in indecision lately, or feeling fear about diving into new things, join us in making a mess and dig in!
