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…

2020 OLW - Build

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…

  • Faith.
  • Confidence.
  • Business.
  • Consistency.
  • Relationships.
  • Heart.
  • Home.
  • Creativity.
  • Knowledge.
  • Health.
  • …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:

  1. Earn the New York / Bermuda CTMH trip.
  2. Lose 50# before I turn 50 at the end of August.
  3. Complete 20 projects in ’20 with Stacy Julian.
  4. Attend CTMH Business Builders later this year.
  5. Experience Disney World with Rafe, perhaps for our 4 year anniversary?
  6. Build a home.
  7. Grow my StampinBuds business both locally and online.
  8. Grow my Scrapbook Retreats to 3x a year.
  9. Buy a MacBook.
  10. Build a better relationship with God.
  11. Drink more water.
  12. Create at least 2 workshops a month.
  13. Build a savings account.
  14. Promote to Executive Director.
  15. Blog at least 3x a week.
  16. Complete my ‘Year in the Life’ album.
  17. Read (1) book per month.
  18. Learn how to update .css code without breaking my blog.
  19. Double my CTMH income.
  20. 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.

2020 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.
