I’ve been in a rut lately and whenever I start feeling this way, I turn inward to figure out why. Admittedly, I have had a lot going on and when things are hectic I have the tendency to put all my focus into what’s going on and forget about myself.  I think this is a common issue among women since we are nurturers innately and we’re taught to take care of others since the moment we get our first baby doll.  After some introspection, I realized the problem was that I wasn’t working toward a personal goal.  This is totally foreign to me since I’ve always been ambitious.  Even though my ambitious nature hasn’t changed, I hadn’t allowed myself the time to work toward my goals.  Before mapping out time to work toward them, I had to reevaluate my goals. 

Here are the steps I took:

(1)    Looked over long and short-term goals

(2)    Checked off things that I’ve accomplished

(3)    Crossed out things that were no longer relevant

(4)    Imagined (yes imagined) what I want my life to be like now and in the future

(5)    Set goals based on my vision

I don’t know about you, but a vacation home in the South of France is not a reality for me now…but planning a vacation is so it’s important to break down your goals into bite-sized portions.  A wise man once asked, “How do you eat an elephant?”  My answer was YOU DON’T! But figuratively speaking, “One bite at a time.”  This serves as a reminder to set attainable goals.  Another example is forgoing that exotic vacation and shoe shopping 😓 to save up for a down payment on that vacation home.  It is important to be consistent with your goals and work toward them daily.  Whatever your goals, pursue them relentlessly.
