Make it Count

In Uncategorized by Nakia Lawrence2 Comments

It’s already the second day in the New Year so, let’s aim for success. If you haven’t already it’s that time to set those goals & aspirations!
It’s that time of year when we reflect upon the year past, see the goals that were not accomplished and try to set new ones. I’ve learned setting goals is also a tried and true motivational exercise.
In today’s blog I’m going to share a few of my personal goals and a few tips on goal setting.

In December I reflected on goals I had set for 2017, reviewed the ones I accomplished and the ones I didn’t. Wrote down areas I could work on and even things that were out of my hands I couldn’t change.
My personal, business & future goals all go hand in hand. If it’s a class or book I’m taking I want it to help also grow me in business for example.

Nikki’s Goals:
– Going back to school: I have an associate degree but I’m ready for the next level. As I grow with my business I’m learning there’s a lot behind the senses, me taking on my business major will only help me grow.
(Happy to share my classes start February)
– Sewing. As a fashion stylist I wrote down a list of things I was great at and things not. It never really crossed my mind I can’t sow lol. Some may say this isn’t a big deal but what if my client has any issues with wardrobe or look #2 doesn’t workout 🤷🏾‍♀️
– Travel More. If living in Europe isn’t enough lol We live near so many extraordinary places it would be a shame not to explore them
– Grow my Brand & Business. I want to launch my YouTube channel this year, Grow my network on social media, my website & blog.

So how to do make your goals count? What are some of the things you do to set and accomplish your goals?

Tips on Goal Setting:
– Don’t forget that the big goals are great but most people set small goals to help motivate themselves to change.
– Know what you want to accomplish. Y’all be surprised how many people set a goal but really don’t know what they are trying to get out of it
– Make Deadlines. All good plans operate on a timeline that has specific deadline
– Good goals are about stewarding what you’ve been given well: your relationships, your money, your possessions, your work, your children, your home, your health, and your time. A little intentional forethought goes a long way!

I can’t wait to see what you all accomplish in the new year… It’s 2018 Baby let’s go for what we want 💋
