2018 won’t be built in a day!

Usually I spend this time of year planning for the next 12 months.

I reflect on the previous year.  I note the accomplishments I’m proud of and the little things I want to change.

This year is different.  From a business perspective I have a ton of new ideas bursting at the seams.  They are all still in my head and have not yet been documented in my 2018 business plan.

On a personal note I’m just not quite ready to commit to the gym yet or my pretty little Weight Watchers app or to read for a half hour before bed each night.

My Christmas holidays have been jam packed with good old fashioned hard labour! Up early and late to bed to finally makeover my studio space the way I’ve always dreamed it could be.  I’m so excited about it that I’ve had no time to think, contemplate or plan, I wake up and I just “do”.

The great part about the last few days is that I don’t feel stressed at all.  I have the same feeling as when I wake up really early to work.  The house is silent and I feel like I’m the only one on the planet who is out of bed and getting ahead of the game.

I’m going to choose to believe that I have used my powers to stop time and give myself whatever space I need to complete this project that is so important to me with minimal interruptions.

This whole experience is teaching me something very powerful going into 2018.

Perhaps this will be a year where I can let go of feeling rushed and overwhelmed.  Maybe I’m finally learning to make time for the things that are important to me.  If I can master this I will ultimately propel the dreams and plans inside of my head to become reality.

This year I will stop my world from spinning and allow myself to reach my goals strategically, in my own time.

As the old saying goes, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”

Are you tired of putting things off because you think something else is more important?

Join me this year in building the dreams that are important to you.

I’m with you all the way!

Let’s show 2018 who’s running the show.
