Welcome 2017!

Are you ready for 2017? I am! This year was one for the record books and will soon be over.

I follow Jon Acuff, and he gave some great pointers on a year-end review and how to set some goals for the coming year. I had great success in the 30 Days of Hustle program that my new planner this year is the Commit30 Planner.

There are three questions to consider in a year-end review:

  1. What to start doing in 2017?
  2. What to stop doing in 2017?
  3. What to continue to do in 2017?

As part of this discussion, I will include the things from 2016 and how I did with each one.

What to start doing?

Last year I wanted to pitch more jobs. And on the fun side, I wanted to start riding again. Well, I still need to pitch jobs. I need to conquer the fear and just put myself out there. I have several opportunities in the coming year as well as building an engineering practice.  Pitching is required to get any freelance work. It’s time to jump in with both feet.

And I did start riding for a bit. I still need to find my horse to help with the riding goal. You can read more about my riding adventures on Sierra Ranch, LLC.

What to stop doing?

One word! Procrastinating! STILL! It has to stop for me to build my businesses into what I know they can be. I have taken some action in

How do you stop procrastinating? By taking action. I have done that in several different ways. One I have a barn manager at Seirra Ranch, LLC. She helps keep the ranch running, so I can focus on the other businesses. I am still working on how Stormy Orchid, LLC is going to grow. We had a conceal carry class at the ranch last summer and might include more of that if there is interest. I will keep writing and developing websites for local businesses as well as grow the engineering practice.

What to continue doing?

As with last year, I will continue to exercise every weekday morning. My new job has somewhat flexible hours so that I can continue to do this. I will also continue to count calories. I have a goal weight that I could like to reach by a certain time. It is achievable if I put in the work.

I have always been one that loved to learn. I know there is still much to learn about all my endeavors. I was told as a kid that if you learned something new every day you wouldn’t die. Learning new things in all my businesses will lead to new ventures in the future.

Stop wishing, start doing in 2017. The Commit30 Planner, Notebook, Journal – Order Now.

I am working on my calendar for the next year. Using the #Commit30 planner each month will have a goal. I will update you each month with my goal and if it was achieved. What are the three top things you will be working on to grow your business or yourself? Leave a comment or email me!

Welcome to 2016!

010115post2015 has been a challenge to say the least. But I follow Jon Acuff, and he gave some great pointers on a year-end review and how to set some goals for the coming year. I am also in his 30 Days of Hustle Group, so look out world.

There are three questions to consider in a year-end review:

  1. What to start doing in 2016?
  2. What to stop doing in 2016?
  3. What to continue to do in 2016?

What to start doing?

Pitch more jobs. All across the board. From writing to engineering work, I need to put myself out there and get more work to build the life I love. So I will be writing more here and growing more of a following. On the fun side, I want to start riding again. And I will!

What to stop doing?

One word! Procrastinating! It has to stop for me to build my businesses into what I know they can be. I have taken some action in Stormy Orchid, LLC, and now it’s time to take action in the other businesses. This year I will grow all of my businesses to what I know they can be.

What to continue doing?

I have been exercising every weekday morning. I have been walking or biking and lifting weights. I know I need to lose weight to ride my horse better. I also need to be stronger. I am getting there and will continue that habit I started when I quit my JOB. I also want to keep learning. You never can know everything and learning keeps you young. I want to keep learning in all my businesses, and that will lead to new avenues to take in the future.

I know these are not SMART goals and over the next few weeks, I will be setting some. What are the three main things you will be working on to grow your business or yourself? Leave a comment or email me!

Who Wants To Color?

FabricDesignCarsAs we go through life, we sometimes forget to have some fun. I have met some wonderful folks through several entrepreneur groups that have put the fun back in life.  Check out these cool coloring books for grown-ups.

Don’t you remember as a kid the fun you had coloring and how everything was better if you could just escape into coloring? It turns out that coloring helps your brain. There are books for women and men. Simple books and harder ones.

I recently had a friend beat several different kind of cancers. She posted the very detailed drawings she was coloring every day on Facebook.  MegamuscleIt was great therapy for her to have a creative outlet to pour her heart into so she could heal.

It also turns out that by coloring a bit each day you help keep your brain younger and active. So if you get tired or reading or other activities that work your brain, why not try coloring.

Click on the pictures here and you visit Amazon to check out the great deals. The top two are on sale right now. And don’t forget to order some great colored pencils or markers to do you coloring.

If you have any questions or need other ideas or have ideas on how to keep your brain active, contact me!
