Wow, it is hard to believe that it is already January. The beginning of a new year, and a time for reflection on the past year. Jeremy and I spent a day a few weeks ago to take a look at the past year and think about what worked and what didn’t for us personally and for our business. We talked about so many aspects of our life and our business and it was such a refreshing time. I love the beginning of a new year. It is a time when I don’t feel bogged down by what we have done in the past, but a time when I feel like we have so much ahead of us. A fresh start and a new beginning are ahead of us.
Here are just a few of our 2013 goals:
Continue to blog 5x per week (I love blogging, and have been doing really well at blogging M-F. I wanna keep it going!)
Read 12 books in 12 months
Eat Healthier (We actually prefer healthy food most of the time…but we tend to get busy so meal planning is going to help us not have as many last minute meals this year)
Start each day in Scripture (I cherish my time in The Word, but it is so easy to jump right into work, or get distracted by whatever is going on, and not get that time right at the beginning of the day.)
Have set office hours
Work from the office (We got into a bad habit of taking our work with us everywhere, but this year we really want to try and keep work in the office, so we are free to enjoy family time.)
Here are our goals for the month of January:
Rock out 2 bridal shows!
Finish up a big print project we have been working on…super exciting!!!
Get in the groove of working from the office and having office hours
Read the first book for my 12 in 12
It is so important to actually write down your goals, it gives you something tangible to look back on throughout the year, and it keeps you accountable. I like to keep track of thing in a cute journal or notebook. Since it is the start of a new year, and I want you to write out your goals, I am giving away a lovely journal for you to write them in. I have the same one and I just love it. The gold foil script on the white cover is an inspiration in itself. So leave a comment here telling me one of your big goals for 2013 and one person will get a pretty journal to write their goals in!
The winner will be announced on Friday!
