OLW | My One Little Word for 2020 is BUILD
Choosing my ‘One Little Word’ to live by in 2020 – BUILD – came surprisingly easy this year. I didn’t even need to spend a lot of time mulling over a huge list of possibilities like in years past. That was kinda nice! The word just popped into my head one day and I immediately knew I needed to…
I have pondered the thought that maybe I should’ve chosen to RE-build instead of Build. However, after such a devastating 2019 where Rafe and I both lost a parent, I needed to choose a word that made a positive statement in my life. A word that could give me direction in my pursuance of…
- …and most of all, Myself.
To help me get started, I figured my first step was to sit down and set some goals. It’s a hard process but as the old saying goes… ~A dream without a plan is just a wish.
Here are my 20 Goals in ’20 list:
- Earn the New York / Bermuda CTMH trip.
- Lose 50# before I turn 50 at the end of August.
- Complete 20 projects in ’20 with Stacy Julian.
- Attend CTMH Business Builders later this year.
- Experience Disney World with Rafe, perhaps for our 4 year anniversary?
- Build a home.
- Grow my StampinBuds business both locally and online.
- Grow my Scrapbook Retreats to 3x a year.
- Buy a MacBook.
- Build a better relationship with God.
- Drink more water.
- Create at least 2 workshops a month.
- Build a savings account.
- Promote to Executive Director.
- Blog at least 3x a week.
- Complete my ‘Year in the Life’ album.
- Read (1) book per month.
- Learn how to update .css code without breaking my blog.
- Double my CTMH income.
- Learn penmanship with Melissa Esplin.
Now that my goal list is complete, the next step is to wish my goals into reality by creating a Vision Board.
My initial thought was to create on a 12 x 12 piece of Cardstock. However, after creating my 20 in 20 list (above) I quickly determined that my goal list needed more space. Plus, I didn’t want to get wrapped up in embellishments. I needed to keep the process super simple otherwise risk not actually get it done.
So, after scouring my iPhone for photos and Pinterest for quotes, I decided to pin my aspirations to a cork board which was already hanging on the wall next to my computer below sticky love notes from my daughter, Becca. I also cut out a ‘2020’ title with my Cricut Maker and arranged everything the best that I could. While it’s nothing extremely fancy, I take pride in the accomplishment!
Now it’s your turn to do the same. Make 2020 a great year by building your wishes into goals and your goals into an obtainable vision just like I did. ~A year from now you’ll be glad you did.
