What plans do you have for yourself? What areas do you want to grow in? What challenges do you hope to conquer?
I have some goals for myself this year:
Learn more about mentoring my children.
Run a half marathon in March.
Start a new blog (more on that coming soon).
Complete some exciting projects for YOU here at Inspired To Action.
My personal motto for 2012 was “Do as little as possible, as well as possible.”
I am the sort of person who can get excited about almost anything. Overcommittment has been a way of life for me. Until this year.
I learned the art of saying no.
As a result, this holiday, for the first time, I felt like I had so much margin. I got my Christmas cards done early, presents were bought and wrapped ahead of schedule and a last minute holiday sickness didn’t derail us at all.
This “do as little as possible” thing is something I want to get used to. But I still haven’t figure out the “as well as possible” part.
Read with Me?
That’s why I’m so excited about 2013. I’ve finally figured out my capacity, now I can focus this year on doing these few things with excellence.
Or try, anyway.
One tool I’ll be using is a book by John Maxwell called The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. It’s the sort of book that I’ll be digging into all year long. In fact, I have a fun group of friends who are going through it with me.
And I thought you might like to read through it as well. It’s an easy read, but it is absolutely brimming with wisdom, ideas and insightful questions.
I’ve actually read the whole book, but now I want to go back and apply it to my days. If you haven’t heard of John Maxwell, he is an author and former pastor who has written 70+ books on business and leadership. Moms are leaders. So we can call this a parenting book. Mmmmk…?
My Goal For You In 2013
My goal is that by the end of 2013, you’ll be able to look back on the year and say that the time you spent at InspiredToAction.com changed you.
I want to do whatever I can to help you get where you dream of going.
I want to cheer you on, keep you accountable and offer practical help either from my own experience or by bringing in others who can share their wisdom.
I’m so excited about some very intentional post series and community challenges I have planned this year.
Of course, you don’t have to participate. The blog will continue on as it has. But if you’re in a season where you have the capacity and desire to grow, I can’t wait to walk this journey alongside you.
Live On Purpose
2013 has every possibility of being the most amazing year of our lives. Let’s be intentional with the time and resources God has given us.
Join me in reading The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. I’ll be posting a follow up post each month so we can share what we’ve learned and applied.
