Goals of 2013

Here's the deal. I'm not much of a "resolution" person. It feels like you are setting yourself up for failure, not to mention puts a negative spin on your previous year. I like to set goals. There's nothing like a goal to motivate you. And because I'm a firm believer that if you put it out there in the universe, you're more likely to hold yourself accountable, I'm going to share my business 2013 goals.

 via

1. Get organized. Being a one (wo)man show, I often say that all of the information is in my head, it doesn't need to be on paper too. Not anymore. Binders, files, boxes. I need it all.

2. Grow my business. Take on projects that will teach me something, challenge me and help me get stronger as a business person. Skips the ones that eat up hours and don't get me too far.

3. Post original content multiple times a week. If there's anything I've learned from blogging its not that no one (including me) wants to see regurgitated pinterest pictures.

4. Get published. This one is big for me. It is a tangible success and I like that.

5. Finish up my office. Its easy for the design of my office to fall to the bottom of my list each week, but I want to get it done asap. Its much more inspiring to work in a pretty space.


What do you think of goals vs resolutions? Do you have any for 2013?

  5. I feel like goals are MUCH more attainable. When you make resolutions you're setting yourself for failure (or at least I am).

  6. I love goals, I feel like they hold you accountable. I've stopped resolutions and started making a to-do list every year. This year I have 21 things on my to-do list. Some are fun and simple and others will require work. Having a list gives me the opportunity to check off what I accomplished. Who wants to check off two things? Not me!
