How do I Accomplish My Goals & Get Stuff Done? – Part I: The 7 Steps to Accomplish Your Goals and Get Stuff Done!

Notes from GeNienne

I don’t know about you, but I spent the holidays having great laughs with family and friends, opening and giving wonderful gifts of love, and eating some not-so-healthy but oh-so yummy food!  It felt great!!

However, last week… just one week into the New Year… I was already starting to feel overwhelmed… with client work, Sideline Prep obligations, events, house cleaning, to-do list items, my future, etc.

So I sat down, took some time for ME, relaxed, and thought about what I want to accomplish over the next 90 days to one year.  As I started to revisit my “purpose” in life… and where I want to be in the next few years, I began to settle down and relax.
Then, I naturally began my planning. After an hour of reflecting, brainstorming, writing, and “dreaming”… I had a plan of action and sense of peace!!

I figured if I was going through this… maybe others were too.  Then I decided to create a Two-Part Video Series about:

How Do I Achieve My Goals & Get Stuff Done?

Great question, right??

It’s easy to think we’ll get things done simply because we want to do them, but the truth is that intention and desire aren’t enough.  We have to set GOALS to reach our dreams because our goals are what keep us accountable, help us reach further, and allow us to celebrate or re-evaluate when a goal passes.

Often we get caught up in the day-to-day activities of our life and we forget to challenge ourselves and reach for bigger and better things. Making the practice of setting goals or actions or resolutions or whatever you call them is very importance to reach “excellence” and become your best you!

Well… in “honor” of the New Year… I wanted to pass on some tips on how to set yourself up for success in the upcoming year. Don’t give up on your New Year’s Resolutions, dreams, goals, or aspirations yet. Use these 7 Steps to Accomplish Your Goals & Get “Stuff” Done this Year!!
