I have so many projects on the go or starting that I decided to treat myself to a new goal planner. This one dates from July 17 to July 18 which is perfect. I don't want to start in January, things need planning right now! I have notes and little books all over the place. I'm a list builder, big time. But that's for work and shopping and banking, stuff I can get down on paper and then forget about until I check my list. I have a small pad that lives next to my laptop which I update every Friday with creative projects, blogging notes and reminders to update my websites. Stuff like that. I have a 'your best year ever' creative business planner by Lisa Jacobs that I've been using all year. It's a 2016 copy that I never used and it is a great tool for starting the new year. I may purchase another 2016 version on Amazon in December, they are like a quarter of the price! Who needs exact dates when you're planning goals? I check in with this monthly rather than weekly and see where I'm at. So I have lots of info getting written down but I want a place for steps, building blocks to get me where I want to be. I love goal setting because I get motivated so much everytime I cross something off. Adding something new is a buzz too. I don't like rigidity though, it makes me panic. I try to be a little versatile with what gets done and allow myself to reassess regularly. As long as a little step is taken everyday, I'm gaining ground. Anyway back to my new goal planner. It's so brand spanky new that I'm scared to start it! It's silly I know but I hate to make a mess of clean new pages. I may start tonight or tomorrow or perhaps I should start now. Mm, I need to write a goal to start writing my goals!
