2021 has arrived and as I have contemplated the coming year, I have decided to give my 2021 a theme and that theme is to “Live Honestly”.
Jim Rohn said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you will fall into someone else’s plan… and guess what they have planned for you? NOT MUCH!”
Forget about new year’s resolutions and let’s take it one month at a time. So, what’s your heart’s desire to accomplish in January 2021? You know that thing you won’t share with anyone for fear of (fill in the blank). And yet when we do not give our desires a voice, that desire sits quietly in our hearts never to be accomplished. The world suffers too, because the world needs us to be who we are created to be. So, let’s be true to ourselves and become all that we are meant to be.
Join me in giving a voice to your one Jan 2021 accomplishment - right here, right now!
What ONE GOAL must you set in order to call your accomplishment a win?
What ONE DISCIPLINE must you insert into your lifestyle in order to support your goal?
Name ONE Habit you must eliminate or create…stop (fill in the blank) or start (fill in the blank)
I will go first!
Accomplishment: Complete a continuing education certification in Jan 2021
Goal: Log 36 hours of training and pass the exam on Jan 29th
Discipline: Log 2 hours of training from 7-9pm M-W-Th-F-S for 4 weeks
Stop: Say NO to the TV
Start: Say YES to the online training in a designated place free of distraction & TV
So, how about you? Let’s take this one month at a time, give your heart’s desire a voice! I would love to hear what your heart is telling you that it wants to accomplish in Jan 2021…comment below
I am going to write down all the good things that happen to me this year. I will write it on a small piece of paper and place it in a jar. It should be fun reading them next New Years Eve. Hopefully my jar will be full. I thought it would be a good way to condition myself to look for all the blessings and be reminded how God is good.
Accomplishment: Help secure some pre-reading skills for my kindergarten daughters
Goal: All letter sounds and recognition, sight words that are sent home memorized, and follow through with weekly home letters
Discipline: Work with each individually twice a week
My YES: Priority. Use the time we have as best as I can.
My NO: Backing out because I might not have a specific plan, idea, worksheet, etc.
Thank you, Sarah! I wish you great success with piano sight-reading. I love that your “Yes” incorporates the use of small sections of time for those days when a 30-minute block of time never materializes… a great strategy. And Don’t forget the world NEEDS to hear your music!
Accomplishment: having a clean and organized house
Goal: de clutter one room a week for the month of January
Discipline: 1 full hour of cleaning a day for 4 days a week
Stop: staying up late at night
Start: getting up by 7am
This is such an inspiring method of goal setting and just what I needed after what an overwhelming year 2020 was for me! Rather than thinking of the whole 12 months, it seems far more manageable to look at one months work at a time. Here is mine, although small, I’ve been trying to accomplish it for 2 years with no success.
Goal: learn sight reading on the piano
Discipline: daily practice 20-30 min for the month of January
My NO: wasting time on my phone
My YES: making use of the small sections of time in a day instead of waiting for the 30 min block.
