“Maddie’s Moments” – what I know now – Setting resolutions
So, here’s my monthly share for December
Time for reflection, appreciation and evaluations.
Do you aspire to personal goals? Do you see yourself as always learning? Do you see yourself as wanting to slow down and “stop and smell the roses”?
Personal goals can be inspiring and challenging – if they are realistic. So often we have these lofty goals only to feel dissatisfied and disappointed when they don’t come to fruition. If it is something you really deep-down want to attain, but it seems too large, then take the time to break it down into smaller steps. It’s great to have a dream, but it remains a dream and not reality unless YOU really want it badly enough. So often I have had great ideas but found the only way I could see them happen in my life was to figure out the baby steps. Sometimes the progress seems slow, but its progress none the less. And then at the end of the time period I have set aside for review, I always see results.
The other side of the coin is setting aside the time to reflect, relax and enjoy. That can be a goal as well! We are all so busy, busy, busy. We feel pressure at work and at home. Trying to convince others that down time is vital to staying refreshed and creative in itself can be a goal! So, figure out who the people are that you need to convince, and take the time to figure out how they think, what appeals to them in the thinking process, and then take the steps to own your time. It’s important to get into their shoes to see how it looks from their point of view. And they just might learn something from your strategy themselves!
