This year, I am focusing on making the small choices to bring my One Little Word into my life on a weekly-or-so basis.
This year I want to NURTURE my life and the things I already have, rather than fall into that rat-race-style trap of more, bigger, further, etc. I want to cultivate my existing business rather than stretching myself too thin. I want to take care of ME and all the little pieces that make up me.
So rather than just go about my life, wondering if I am being nurturing, I came up with a small handful of goals that (I decided) if they are reached will be evidence that I have been nurturing. A little roundabout, maybe, but the best way I know to make this work influential in my life throughout the year.
I like having a goal or end point to aim for. It makes me focus my individual tasks rather than wander aimlessly.
These goals are on cards that will fit in my 3×3 9-pocket page. This is similar to the July project from 2013 – but will cover the whole year and be intentional goals. I’ll simply date and journal the card once the goal is completed and insert it in the page throughout the year.
I realize the cards are essentially blank at the moment, but I have the specifics in my brain. I want to stay flexible and be able to celebrate what I DO accomplish, even if I don’t meet the exact SMART goal in my head.
Flexible but intentional.
