Facebook Groups for PowerSheets Users

One of our very best PowerSheets tips is to find a PowerSheets buddy to keep you accountable in making the little by little progress on your goals. Why? Accountability is a game-changer, and it's so helpful to have your tribe to go to when you need advice or encouragement or when you want to celebrate accomplishing a goal!

However, we know that sometimes distance, life circumstances, or work schedules can make it harder to have face-to-face interaction on a regular basis, and that's why we're thrilled to offer five Facebook groups for the Cultivate family. These Facebook groups offer hundreds and thousands of women who are using PowerSheets to cultivate what matters in their own lives, and after spending time there myself, I'd bet money that they're some of the most encouraging groups on all of Facebook!

  • PowerSheets Group: This is our main Facebook group, and it's the hub of all things PowerSheets-related! Our team spends a few hours each week browsing all your goals and cheering you on as you make progress. I also get a lot of ideas for blog content in this group, too!
  • Moms Cultivating What Matters with PowerSheets: Anything from book recommendations for moms-to-be to creating a morning routine to finding baby socks that don't fall off is shared here! I'm not a momma myself, yet, but these ladies seem pretty wise and you can bet I'll be using this resource in the years to come.
  • Students Cultivating What Matters with PowerSheets: Are you a student? This group is a great place for students to encourage and inspire each other in this unique season of life! Our Customer Delight and Shop Manager Kaylee is a recent graduate herself, and she's one of the group's biggest cheerleaders!
  • Business Owners Cultivating What Matters With PowerSheets: One of my favorite parts of this group is watching women take dreams of businesses and begin to plant the seeds to build them. Whether you're dreaming up a business idea and writing out a business plan or a seasoned business owner yourself, you're sure to find extra encouragement here!
  • Cultivating Faith with PowerSheets: We know many of your goals is to cultivate your faith (and not just with our Write the Word journals). These ladies are quick to offer encouragement and practical resources to implement your faith in your life.

Click the links above to join one (or a few) of the ones that are applicable to your season of life, and request access. A member of our team will approve your request in a jiffy, and then you're free to introduce yourself and share your PowerSheets goals and progress. I've learned so much from these amazing ladies, and I can't wait for you to be equally encouraged!

We can't wait to say hi to some new faces in these groups!

A Comprehensive Guide to Fitness Goals

We've talked quite a bit in the past about how to get fit and how imperfection can help you get in the best shape of your life, and we firmly believe those posts are full of encouragement and practical advice for you. We also know that when it comes to setting goals that work for your lifestyle, everyone is different, and sometimes you need a little inspiration when it comes to filling out your monthly PowerSheets Tending List.

We're starting a new series where we're going to be sharing a collection of monthly, weekly, and daily goals that align with larger themes we see in our PowerSheets community. Our hope is that you use these guides as resources when you're looking to make progress on one of your goals and need some inspiration to fill out the lines of your Tending List. Remember, these are simply suggestions to help get your wheels turning, and we welcome any additional suggestions in the comments!

First up, fitness goals! Whether you're a triathlete or you hate running with every bone in your body (I certainly lean more towards one of those than the other), the list below will give you some ideas for your Tending List if you're looking to prioritize your health and fitness this year!

Monthly Goals

  • Download Couch to 5K
  • Find a personal trainer

  • Sign up for barre membership
  • Choose an exercise plan
  • Join the local YMCA
  • Buy a pair of running shoes
  • Purchase a Fitbit
  • Find an exercise buddy for accountability

How To Use Stickers In Your PowerSheets and Planner

If you've seen my PowerSheets or calendar on Instagram, you know that I'm a big fan of my favorite black pen. A year ago, I probably would have scoffed at the idea of using color in my planner or PowerSheets, but I've been converted after using our Cultivate What Matters Sticker Book for the past eight months! I'm here to share some of the ways I use stickers in my PowerSheets and Simplified Planner, and I'd love to hear from you, too!

Stickers_In_PowerSheets

PowerSheets Prep Day Stickers: We've said over and over again that we created our sticker book to be intentional, and I'd argue that this is one of the most intentional stickers in the whole book! I add a PowerSheets Prep Day sticker to my planner on the last Friday of each month to remind me to prepare well for the month ahead!

Establish a monthly planning day. This doesn't have to take a long time, but try to spend an hour at the beginning of the month looking at your calendar and PowerSheets. Tip: Do it right after you finish your PowerSheets prep for efficiency! Mark any upcoming birthdays, appointments, meetings, bills, coffee or play dates with stickers on your monthly calendar spread so you can visually see what's in store for the month. This will help you see the whole month at a glance, and prioritize or reschedule if you find one week is filling up faster than others.

Stickers_In_PowerSheets_Planner

Keep the stickers accessible! You won't use the stickers if they aren't near your PowerSheets or planner, so keep them together! I tore the page of stickers you see above out of my book, and I keep it in the front pocket of my planner. If I add a meeting, appointment, or get a bill notification, it's easy for me to add that to my calendar right then and there!

Use them to celebrate. Celebrating often conjures up this grand idea of throwing a party, going on a trip, or spending a lot of money, but what if we celebrated in a smaller way (and more frequently!?) While filling out my August PowerSheets, I decided that I wanted to try to use some of my stickers to mark my progress this month. I'm going to start by using the shopping cart sticker for my weekly goal of meal planning and prepping. Each time I put a sticker on my PowerSheets, I'll be reminded of the little by little progress!

Stickers_Are_Fun

Have fun! Don't take yourself too seriously! Use the stickers because they are exciting and help you focus on what matters, but don't get overwhelmed by making it look perfect! This is your planner, not a work of art! If you put too much pressure on yourself, you'll never even start!

Now through July 31st, everything in the Cultivate Shop is 25% off–no code needed! If you're as big of a fan of the sticker book as I am, now is the time to stock up. We are releasing a new sticker book at the end of the year, so when this one is gone, it's gone!

Why You Don’t Need PowerSheets To Set Goals

Today can be your January 1st. I know what you're going to say because I've heard it a lot since we sold out of our 2017 PowerSheets a few weeks ago: "Jess, I need #PowerSheets and you're sold out! I can't start fresh without PowerSheets!"

What I'm about to say probably goes against every marketing tactic out there, but I'm going to say it anyway:

You don't actually need our PowerSheets to start cultivating an intentional life.

Are PowerSheets a tool that helps you organize your thoughts and dreams and break those down into action steps? I wholeheartedly believe so.

Is it helpful to have a beautiful spiral-bound workbook to keep everything together? Yes.

Are you more motivated to stay on track when you've spent money on and invested in a tool? Maybe.

But here's the thing: You can start right where you are. It's not the product that matters; it's the work you put into it. You don't have to have a PowerSheets Workbook to start setting intentional goals. In fact, if you wait until 2018 PowerSheets come out this fall, you are doing yourself a disservice by not taking advantage of the momentum and excitement you feel right now.

So what do you do while you wait? Here are some great places to start (some are even free!):

  • In her 2017 Goal-Setting Series, Lara walks through her personal PowerSheets prep and goals for the year. It's a great place to follow along, with a notebook and pen in hand. There are five parts, and here is a direct link to Part One.
  • The Cultivate blog is full of great tips and tricks that are applicable even if you don't have PowerSheets in hand! Equal parts encouragement, behind the scenes of what's happening in the office, and practical to-dos, it's a great place to find resources for some of your action steps.
  • Lara's first book, Make It Happen, incorporates some of the same prompts from the PowerSheets process. Work through this by yourself or with a buddy.
  • Our Couples and Parents Companion Guides are a great resource to help you set goals with your significant other or for your family. If youre looking to cultivate friendships, our Fruitful Friendships Workbook is for you! We created these guides to use in conjunction with your PowerSheets, but they're full of great conversation starters and resources!
  • The Making Things Happen Conference is coming back in March 2018! Tickets officially went on sale yesterday, and you can save your seat and secure the early bird price today! I know you'll have PowerSheets in hand by then, but trust me, this intensive was created to give you a solid foundation and action plan. It was created to help you simplify your life and gain clear direction.

For those of you reading this that don't have PowerSheets in hand, I'm going to challenge you to something today. Make a decision to spend the rest of the year intentionally cultivating what matters. Write it down, and start making little by little progress on it.

The Cultivate team is always ready to answer your questions, remind you to focus on your why, and be your biggest cheerleaders. We are on this journey with you!
