Follow Your Dreams
As children, we all have dreams that may seem out of reach… like becoming an astronaut, a princess or a professional sports star. However, as adults, some of our not so farfetched goals are still seemingly impossible. We have all had dreams and many of us, somewhere along the line, have forgotten why we gave up on them. It could be a simple as organizing your photos or linen closet to more complex goals such as starting your own business or revamping your life style.
The first step to getting back to accomplishing your goals is to have a plan. Ask yourself some basic questions: What are your short and long term goals? What has kept you from reaching them? What do you want to accomplish within the next few years?
A large goal can be overwhelming and frightening to imagine tackling all at once. Organize and break down each goal into individual steps. Take your plan into action one step at a time as you begin to walk towards the end goal. For example, if you’re organizing your photos, start by sorting them into photo boxes by the year. Next, declutter and discard what photos you do not need – the blurry ones, the ones where you can’t tell who is in the picture… you know the ones I am talking about. Decide how you are going to lay them out in a scrapbook. Or if you are like me you get the one that has sleeves, so you don’t have to overthink it! The other option is to scan them and create digital books. Sounds difficult, but it is really easy and fast!
Reaching your goals will require ambition and courage, but if you put your mind to it, anything is possible. Don’t be afraid to ask friends and family for help or advice. If you need the assistance like that of a professional organizer, we are here to help as well. Once you have accomplished your goals, not only will you feel better about yourself, you will have something worth sharing with others… experience, success, hope, and inspiration. Follow your dreams, they are life’s gold.
Love this newsletter! I agree, it takes baby steps in addition to your vision. I also love asking for help on a project. It makes it more fun and it gets completed quickly.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
I’ve heard of people doing a yearly plan of action which helped them stick to their plans. I think I might try that! I could use a little motivation.
What a fantastic idea. Make sure you revisit it on a regular basis so that you can stay on track. The big thing is to not beat yourself up if you miss a deadline. Life happens… just regroup, modify if necessary and keep moving forward!
