Goals into Action
Setting goals is one thing. Taking action on them is another…and actually taking CONSISTENT action on them is yet another.
We have all said, “I’m going to do this thing!” at one point or another and then never took any action on that fabulous idea. Or we have taken the first steps and then pooped out after a week or two. (January resolutions to go to the gym, anyone???)
We can start out with great intentions and then life butts in with other fabulous shiny objects and we get distracted. We find that 6-8 months have passed, and that “thing” hasn’t been thought of and is resting on the back burner just waiting for a little love.
Then shame shows up…“yep, just another ‘thing’ I said I was going to do but didn’t.”
The key to keep those shiny objects from prying you completely away from your goal is to take consistent action. The key to taking consistent action is to have someone, or a group of someones, to share with. People who will ask you how the goal is going and will help you (without judgment) when the shiny object has taken you down a different path.
When I found a group of folks to do this with, I noticed that I was getting a LOT of things done. My list of goals had lots of checkmarks on it. Checkmarks of COMPLETION!! I was DOING IT! And the folks I was with were celebrating me and my accomplishments and pushing me to do more!
AND, the cool part about it was that I was doing that for them as well! THEY were getting more done in a shorter amount of time. THEY were DOING IT! We were all getting stuff done!
We were (and are) supporting each other to fulfill our goals and dreams.
Action with Support
The other cool thing is that, as we are achieving our goals, we are stretching our dreams to things even bigger than we ever imagined.
By having people to champion you and cheerlead you when you are feeling down and unable to move forward really helps to keep you aligned to your goals. It gives you the support to commiserate, when needed, and then pick you up to stay on track.
If you are needing this kind of support and cheerleading, we are opening registration for Goals Bootcamp 2023 soon. In Goals Bootcamp, we set our yearly goals and meet regularly to ensure we are taking action and moving forward. We celebrate accomplishments, no matter how big or small, and support each other when the storms hit.
We have accomplished many things over the years like moving across the country, building new businesses, scrapping businesses, strengthening personal relationships, clearing space in our homes, and maintaining a semblance of self-care.
Goals Bootcamp is about creating goals for both your Life and/or Business and giving the support to achieve them. We want you to FLY! Click HERE to get on the waiting list and be the first to know when registration opens!
