Creating Spring Goals… #BBYSpringForward

“Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.”  – Hugh Allen… I seldom set many New Year’s Resolutions – the weather is dreary, and I’m exhausted from the bustle of the holiday season. But spring feels like time for fresh starts – new goals, new plans, big dreams. And this quote is a perfect motivator for me this spring – It’s a reminder that it’s not the BIG things that make a difference in life – whether we’re talking about relationships, saving money, weight loss, online business, or any of the other areas of that I have goals in – it’s the small, everyday, consistent actions that help us reach our goals. I think of the tortoise and the hare, or the joke, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” Right?

Setting Spring Goals

“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.” – Francis Bacon, Essays, 1625

If you wait until you have an entire day empty so you can finally clean out all of your closets – it’ll probably never happen. But if you break that giant chore down into smaller pieces, and take 15 minutes a day to do a new task, I’ll bet that by month’s end that overwhelming goal is accomplished. Or, for me – I’ve got really big goals for my online business. But I can’t wait until “I have time,” or until some big break comes. No, I have to be ready to jump on each small opportunity as it comes my way, make the best of it, and keep moving towards my dreams. And I also am ready at any time to MAKE my opportunities – I carry business cards at all times. I reach out to people who inspire me. I give 150% on every project I work on. I’m constantly reading, learning, researching, and growing. Because that’s how you find new opportunities.

“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties.” – Harry Truman

March is Women’s History Month, which is a really inspiring month to me. There are – of course – many very accomplished men who done wonderful things, and are worthy of looking up to. But for me, I’m much more inspired by women. Why? Well, not very long ago at all, reaching the same levels of accomplishment as a man was a really difficult thing to do. Women were often denied the same rights, the same opportunities, the same access to things. They had to work twice as hard as men, and often did it while being the primary caregiver to the children too. I’m blessed to be living in a time where all of that hard work has paid off, and I seldom feel like my opportunities are limited just due to being a woman.

“Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending.” – Author Unknown

So… What are you doing this month to honor the women who’ve come before us, who’ve blazed a trail for us, and who’ve allowed us to be able to be the kind of moms who have such a crazy-huge set of options before us? What ways will you use this month to “Spring Forward” with your own goals? Living healthier, getting more organized, reducing stress, being more involved with your kids, building a better relationship with your partner…? Those are all pieces of you that need attention, so that you can be your best YOU. And being your best YOU is the best example you can set for your family, right?
