2014 Goals and Resolutions!

Happy New Year! Are you ready for your best year yet? Not sure how to make it happen?

Now's the time of year when we see and read a lot about goals and resolutions. There's a lot of information floating around out there, so I have distilled the main points down for you.

In my Goal Setting Tips page I have links to several posts that will help you, including:

What's the difference between Goals, Resolutions, Projects and Tasks? This post will help you focus on what you need to reach your goals.

This time last year I wrote a post on Fitting Your Goals Into Your (already-busy) Schedule. Whenever you add something new to your day, you have to take something else out. This post will help you prioritize your tasks, figure out your most-focused times of the day, and schedule your time accordingly.

Using The Plannerisms Planner As A Goals Workbook has lots of info on how to set and track your goals. Tracking your progress is the most important, and often-overlooked, step in goal setting. Monitoring your progress gives you feedback on how close you are to achieving your goals, and what work you still need to do.

To get started, look back through your 2013 planner and see what you accomplished, what became irrelevant and what still needs to be done. Then think about what you want to do in 2014. Read the posts linked above to get you started on the path to an awesome new year!

Wishing you all the best in 2014!


  1. Happy New Year, Laurie!

    I just read an online article that it takes 9 weeks to form a habit. So I need to stick with chosen planner system for that long at least. . .

  2. I intended to sit down and think about last year and the coming year but between working on the house and watching the grandkids and having a cold, I didn't get it done. In fact, I didn't even realize it WAS the new year.
