One of the things I’m most proud of this year is the fact that I wrote a first draft of a book in a 14-day challenge. I focused, committed the time, worked through my demons, and got it all out on paper. But I was not ready for the lesson I learned in what it takes to really finish.
Did you do your planning before the year's end so you could be on and popping in the new year? Yeah, neither did I, but there's no time like the present!
When it comes down to it, we know we need to plan, and you know you need to sign up for workshops and accountability to get your life together in the new year, but sometimes it’s hard to just get started. So, I created a free download + video that shares the first step in my process to help you get the ball rolling.
While the party invitations and family gatherings are filling up our calendars, many of us entrepreneurs are working nonstop to get those last things crossed off our task lists before the year winds down. It’s the time of year that always seems to sneak up on us, and no matter how much we’ve actually accomplished--believe me, you’ve done a lot of awesome things this year, I promise—we never quite feel like we've gotten it all done.
Did you write the book? Did you solidify that strategic partnership? Did you finally get speaking gigs? Did you lose those 15 pounds? Did you finish the website? Did you take down your online dating profile? Did you spend more time with friends/family? Did you have more date nights? Did you pay down your debt? DID YOU REACH THE SIX FIGURE MARK?
I had so many people asking all kinds of questions about my experience at Camp GLP. So, here you go! I ended up having a lot to say, so grab some tea and get comfortable.
Last month, I went to camp. YES, camp. I just turned 30 and I packed myself off for a weekend of arts and crafts and people I didn't know. Camp GLP is hosted by Jonathan Fields, founder of The Good Life Project. I only sort of knew what I was getting into, and am so glad I took the chance and made the decision to invest in myself and go to this fantastic 3 1/2 day retreat for entrepreneurs, movers and shakers.
At the top of March, for the first time ever, I took a scheduled staycation.
If you've been hustling hard toward your 2015 goals like I have, March has probably felt a little easier than February and January, but the pressure is still on. The first quarter flies by so quickly, doesn't it?
I'm going to tell you this because I wish someone had forced me to have a seat and do this last year:
You need to find a day and a half to two days and schedule a staycation.
