“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

Pablo Picasso

I’ve been thinking a lot about goals vs. resolutions.  What’s the difference and what does this even have to do with The Happy Planner®?

Well, for years, I would make New Year’s Resolutions (UGH) about all the things I wanted to change.  It felt very restrictive.  Don’t do this or do less of this.  It always seemed to focus on what I perceived as bad in my life.  And eventually, not too long after the ball had dropped in Times Square, I was back to square one.  I would rebel against changing my “bad habit” and go back to the freedom of doing what I wanted…and feeling quite guilty about it.  Enter negative self-talk and a destructive narrative.  A vicious cycle.

Until one day, something changed.  I started setting GOALS instead.  Goals were forward thinking, empowering and involved a PLAN for success.  See where I’m going with this?  I started PLANNING!  I set very specific goals and held myself to a timeline to reach my success. I was passionate but flexible and I started to achieve the goals I had set for myself.

Your Happy Planner® is the perfect place to set your goals and create an action plan to achieve them.  If you’re struggling to hold onto your New Year’s resolutions or just don’t know where to start…we got you Boo!  Hannah and I have created a three part video series that walks you through the process.

  • PART ONE will walk you through the process of setting specific goals.
  • PART TWO is all about the action plan!
  • PART THREE helps you customize your Happy Planner® to incorporate your action plan.

And I've made it easy to get started.  Just click on the images below and you'll be transported to goal-setting heaven.
