New Month, New Goals.

Every month I try to reassess where I am on my journey for the year. Am I moving forward? Am I stagnating? Have I checked things off of my to do list? Or am I ignoring my goals and hoping for the best? What will put me back on the right track if I’ve veered off at any point?

I make lists for both my work life and my personal life. I encourage you to do the same. A master list of sorts to get you from A to Z in 2020.

Look closely today at where you are in your goals and where you want to be. Is there a noticeable gap? If yes, write down your action steps in each area to get you back to making positive changes and moving forward again. Start a 1-2-3 plan to move yourself from where you are today to where you want to be in the future.

Your plan may require many steps. One thing is for sure. If you don’t plan with forward progression, you will stay rooted to where you are. Remember, a misstep on your journey is only a wrong move if you don’t learn from your mistake. Back up, regroup and go forward with your new knowledge.

List out your goals for the month and the necessary actions you need to take to accomplish them. And then start checking them off Forward progress is a good thing.

Life, Motivation

If Not Now When?

We are all busy people, That’s a given. I’m constantly trying to wring more time out of every 24 hour day. So far I haven’t succeeded.

Each of us has the same 24 hours every day to live our best life. What are you doing today to be your best?

Or are you sitting back waiting for tomorrow? You’ll try something new then. You’re far too busy to attempt a change today. I have a newsflash for you. Tomorrow never comes. Today is all we have. It is the present. When another day rolls around, it will be today. That elusive tomorrow will always stay one step ahead of us.

Stop waiting for tomorrow. Decide to take action today. Because if not now, when? Do you want to live your life on regrets and might have beens? I sure don’t.


Formulate a plan. Then take the first step. It’s always the hardest. Then each new day, take another step and another. Before you know it, you will have made a new habit and you will start to see positive changes in your life.

Don’t be content with yesterday. Or hope for a different tomorrow. Act today. It’s all we have. Your best life is waiting for you.

If not now, when?
