Making it happen Monday

184: Blog PlannerI’ve decided to start a new weekly post, called “Making it happen Monday.” Each week, I am going to either do an update on what I am doing to make my goals happen, or perhaps look at what others are doing. Either way, I hope the posts will be inspiration for others while being motivation for me.

I jump started this week by finally putting together a binder (My “Little Black Book of Blogging” as I decided to call it.) for organizing my blog and, by extension, my life. Each week I can now plan out blog posts, work days, bills due and a detailed to do list that might not get done that week but things that need to be on my radar. It’ll also help me stay focused even on days we decide to just go out for the day, be it on the bike or for a drive or whatever. I know what I need to do ahead of time, so it can get done.

I’ve tried to do something similar on my phone, synched to my computer. However, for me, there are just some things I need to write down versus type. I still see a need to paper and pen. Call me old fashioned, I don’t care. Its what works for me. It’s what keeps me honest and on track.

SONY DSCIn my binder, I added some awesome downloads I scored from Alli Worthington. These came at the most perfect time for me. I am setting out on this path, feeling certain I know what I need to do, but scared of going off track.

Its not success I fear, its serious failure. It’s fear of letting myself and others down. And these downloads are already helping me find clarity and build my path as I go.

I’m SO excited, so ready to leap without fear of failure.  This is the heart of “Making it happen Monday.”
