New year, New You?

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

My goal for 2019: to accomplish the goals of 2018, which I should have done in 2017, because I promised myself in 2016 and planned in 2015. Sound familiar?

For my first blog I want to talk resolutions? Did you make one and if so why? Is it the same thing each year with never any real change? By definition resolution means to make a firm decision to do or not to do something.

According to U.S. News, approximately 80%  of resolutions fail by the second week of February, the odds are against you my friend. 

So I’ve come up with a few tips to help you successfully accomplish your goals.

-Write them down!!!! – Don’t just have a mental list of things you would like to accomplish! Write your goals down and keep them somewhere that will be a constant presence. For me, this was putting the list on a shelf  beside my bed. Every morning when I wake up and look to my left they are there, present and living, in my face every….single….day!

-Commit to making time! Let s face it these days we are all busy. Everyone has 10 million things on their plate to accomplish RIGHT NOW! We make the time for the things that matter the most to us. Correct? Everyone has 24 hours in each day you get to allocate to whichever place and for how long you want. If something is truly important to you, you will find the time. Wake up an hour earlier than everyone else, stay up an hour later, use your lunchtime…. whatever you have to do, do it. You will reap the harvest of utilizing your time to the max.

-Have an accountability partner- I may have saved this for last but it is certainly not least and in my opinion may be the most important piece. There  is power in having to be accountable. Ask someone you trust, and above all supports you, to be your check in partner every few days or week to make sure you are staying on target. If you are not doing so hot figure out the “why” and formulate a plan to get back on track. If you are progressing, rejoice in the progress with that person. (Make sure this person is someone you look to as having a positive outlook in all situations and is encouraging at all times, do not have it be someone who will deliver a negative blow on your goals, this may do more harm then good. So really think this one out.)

….and there you have it I kept it short and simple and believe me I wouldn’t put in print what I am not utilizing myself. I look forward to keeping you updated. I have my goals listed in sections for 2019… faith, family, business, health, and finances. I will be sharing my progress in the future stay tuned!

Much Love

  1. I love this post, especially about having an accountability partner. It is a great idea to write things down as well. I’ve been trying to stick to my goals by writing them in my Commit30 journal.


  2. Kim! I love your blog name & set up. & you basically summed up my life. Recently from a good friend of mine (she will or should see this) told me about a vision board idea for goals that I have set for myself, family, and life in general. My husband is my accountability, and idk if I could hear him reminding me of these things more than once without it driving me crazy lol. Only kidding. He is a great supporter, and only wants me/us to succeed. Love the ideas! Can’t wait to see what you do next!


  3. Great read Kim. I don’t make resolution at the beginning of the year for those reasons. However when I do make changes writing it down and making time is definitely a great idea to help stick to it. Actually blogging is on of my ‘srlf care tools’ so I make sure I make time for that. Having a partner is a great idea too. My next plan is to get a bit more active so that will be a good idea for that activity. Can’t wait to read more lovely ❤️
