ACTION BABY!

So, you’ve written down your goals. You’re not comparing, not competing and you’re taking baby steps. NICE WORK SO FAR.

Today we want to tell you about: ACTION items!!!

We heard recently that you need to look at your calendar and see if your calendar is reflecting the goals that you’re setting...because if your calendar is not reflecting it, that probably means that it’s not going to happen.

So, remember baby steps from yesterday? We meet again. Write down 2 (baby step) things that you can do this week to work towards that goal. You don’t have to schedule your whole month. Just look at this next week and add some actionable items that will help you meet your goals or whatever you wrote down.

See, it’s easy to be all talk and dreams and ideas and color-coordinated lists, but when it actually comes to doing it -- actually taking action -- that’s where we can get tripped up.

If your goal is to work out twice a week -- schedule it now. Find the time now. Schedule it. Say what you’re going to do. Example: I am going to walk on Thursday morning before work for 30 minutes, and on Saturday morning I’m taking the spin class at 10am. DONE.

If your goal is to write more, schedule it. Block out the time. If you don’t, you won’t. Because wishing and hoping that you will accomplish something is VERY different than actually DOING it.

So, today…write down those action items. It’s Thursday, so, look at next week. Just do 2 little things. You will be SO PROUD when you’ve accomplished them, and you will be two steps closer to achieving what you wrote down!

If you feel like sharing, tell us in the comments below what you’re tackling!

Much love and ALWAYS cheering you on…

Which Train Are You On?

Welcome to 2019! It’s a new year. Time to evaluate and dream and look to the future. Everyone is all setting goals and setting intentions for the new year -- time to crush it, right? Well, what if you woke up this morning and are not feeling like you got off at motivation-station? What if it feels more like you still have your ticket for the bi-polar express?

Fear not, we have been there.

We know the feeling of having what seems like everyone else on the planet be 100% cheery and on top of the world with this intense and awesome #newyearnewyou energy, and you feel like a freaking alien.

But, here’s the secret. You can start exactly where you are with exactly what you have.

Maybe you have a job you don’t like? Or you have 20lbs you’ve been wanting to lose. Or maybe it’s that you don’t have the friends you hoped you’d have.

For now, we just want to share one super power tip: We want to tell you that you CAN change your life, and our best most practical advice is to WRITE IT DOWN. Even if you think there is no way on God’s green earth that you can make it happen, write it down anyway. Write it on a napkin or a sticky note or on a secret page in your journal...you don’t have to show anyone... just one thing you’d like to see happen in the new year.

It won’t magically fix anything or change anything in an instant, but you will have started the momentum train. And the momentum train is magic.

What you might not realize is that if you’re reading this right now...you are already one foot on the momentum magic train…

Get ready for the ride. Tune in tomorrow where we will share 3 helpful tips for navigating the new year.

You are loved.

Heart Goals - Day 26 #31DaysOfBlogging

We hate to alarm anyone, but….

There are ONLY 5 days left until 2019.

Say what? That’s incredible.

One of the most helpful things we’ve learned about starting a new year is how to set goals and how to get organized. One of our real-life BFF’s and business heroes, Whitney English, has this amazing plan to start you off on the right foot.

Here we are in Napa (Whitney is on the left, our other awesome friend Jess on the right!)

It’s a workbook called Heart Goals and it’s been such a helpful tool to us…we wanted to share it with you. Go check it out!

We talk to Whitney about the Heart Goals in this episode of Girls Just Pod To Have Fun, as well as lots of other fun things like who we would get celebrity pedicures with, donuts, and other generally fun life topics.
