Making Things Happen in 2014: Part 3


Where do you want to be when you're 80?
When I look back on my life at 80, I want to be able to say that I've never stopped going on adventures, faced change and challenges with an open mind, and made an effort to enjoy and appreciate every day! I'd like to reflect back on my career and be proud of the work that I was able to accomplish and of the people I helped. I want to be able to say that I've developed a "honed" skill set and have a portfolio of projects that have challenged me and celebrate their success. I want to to be able to say that I have a loving and strong relationship with my husband and family. Last but not least, that I've valued memories and experiences over material goods. 

In 2014, I am saying "NO" to:
  • Clutter
  • Negativity
  • Comparing myself to others
  • Too many projects
  • Procrastination
  • Buying knick-knacks
  • No action
  • Laziness 
  • Frustration
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Worry
  • Time Suckers
  • Gossips
  • Jumping to conclusions
In 2014, I am saying "YES" to:
  • Learning
  • Spending time with my family and friends
  • Hard work
  • New opportunities
  • Love
  • Giving
  • Adventures
  • Exercise and being healthy
  • Fun!
  • Focused projects
  • Organizing
  • Simplifying
  • Completion
  • Progress, not perfection
  • Taking small steps
  • Feeling satisfied
  • Less browsing, more doing
  • Embracing change & challenge

My word for 2014: PROGRESS!

There are 365 days in a year to move close to your goals, make each one of them count!
