Make Your Goals Known!

Thinking about goals is fun.  What would you rather focus on: the annoying traffic, the mundane work you have to finish, or the life you imagine for yourself? The answer is obvious (and we all must make sure we focus on that obvious answer instead of wallowing in the annoying and mundane).

How to focus on goals?

Make your goals known!  Decide exactly what you want to get, do and have. Write them down.  Put your goals in a place where you’ll see them.

I just did this for my year’s goals and put them in my new Planner Pad.  I’m writing my April Goals as we speak.  If you decide exactly what you want, write it down and put it in a place where you’ll read it at least once a day, you begin the path to achieving your goals!

Tie It To a Goal

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” –Albert Einstein

With the anticipation of a new month, this week’s focus will be on my goals and my goals alone.  It’s my chance to ensure I’m heading in the right direction, to put my Planner Pad to good use, and to practice visualization and focus techniques.  These things are muy importante after all…

Planning and the Art of Productivity

I used to love using a planner when I was in school.  I remember getting this brand spanking new calender every year–to record my homework, activities and countdown days until summer.  Since high school ended, I haven’t found a planner system that really work for me…until now hopefully!

I just got a Planner Pad.  It incorporates your goals, your weekly to-dos, your daily to-dos and your appointments all in one.  It starts next week (because you can order one starting every 3 months), and I cannot wait!

What does planning have to do with productivity?  EVERYTHING!  It takes preparation to get what you want and now I’m getting that element.  It better help 😀

Create a Life Painting

Life Painting: a painting showing the visual form of your ideal/dream life.  Can be a scene, a montage of scenes, or any way your mind allows you to represent your ideal life.

I loved the idea of creating a life painting from the first moment I heard about it .  Flash forward four years, five moves and endless hours of procrastination and I’ve finally completed it (above…the picture is horrendous I know.  My camera is so old that my phone took the picture above and turned out ten times better!).

A life painting is a great way to visualize your dream life.  First, your right brain creatively transforms a blank canvas into a masterpiece.  Next, you get to visualize your dream life every time you look at it.  It’s like magic in a paint tube.

How to begin creating your own life painting?  Draw out a rough sketch on paper. Decide what’s important to you and your future life.  Brainstorm ways to incorporate all these themes into your canvas.

And then get going!  Even if it takes you years to finish, as it took me, time will go by anyway–you might as well spend some of it transforming your future.

Effects of Productivity

I guess I’ve gotten the idea of productivity affirmed in my mind.  Today I was given two major tasks, though neither party knew whether I was qualified or not. First, I was given like 5 million flyers to hand out for a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society race that I’m involved with.  She decided I must know a lot of people to hand them out to (HA!).  Second, I was asked to film a wedding photography company give a talk at Bridal Insider’s Studio, and I need to edit it for both party’s websites.

I must embody productivity…why else would I be given these tasks?  Because I am productivity queen this week, I will accomplish them too.  They are officially on my to-do list 😀
