Consider your current season in life. Are you married? Are these childbearing years? If so, your goals may look differently than those of a single woman with no children. Different doesn't mean less ambitious. It simply means examining what is good and likely for you right now.
Short and Sweet
When you sort through a list of goals that is short and sweet, you will feel less overwhelmed and completely motivated to achieve your goals.
Start off with 5 priority goals. As you complete your goals, add more. You will notice that you can, in fact, accomplish a lot.
Life happens and delays are inevitable, but staying focused is crucial. Keeping your goals stationed where you can see them everyday is extremely beneficial. I often add verses or inspiring quotes next to my goals for an added push.
I also enjoy following motivating personalities on FB, such as Sandi Krakowski. Sandi's story is inspiring and her pink highlights grow on you.
Revisit, Revise, Relax
After revisiting your list, you may realize that some goals need to be revised. Don't get discouraged; simplify and move on.
For example, one of your goals for the new year may be to lose 20 lbs. but you have become pregnant. Losing 20 lbs. is now obsolete. You may need to revise your list to reflect not gaining more than your baby weight recommendation.
Learn to Say No
Prioritize. Keep God first and family close behind.
"Because a goal without a plan is just a dream." Write a five year plan.
Family Purpose/Mission Statement
"Because every family needs one."
Even better - why not have your mission statement displayed as a piece of art.
If you are wondering where to start in creating your mission statement, Stephen Covey has a great free online tool to help!
A Wise Woman has some good tips for the new year.
