Goals, I got ’em.
I’m nearing the end of my 30 Day Guide to Living Life on Purpose. Even though Stratejoy graciously donated their services to me as part of their 20sb Blog Tour, I’m getting way more out of it than just another free product. Yesterday, as part of my third audio session, I worked out some of my Big Life Goals. And, in understanding my Big Life Goals, I’ve also penned a few little life goals for the next year. And, in penning my little life goals, I’ve also come up with three mini-goals to help me achieve my little life goals. Do you follow?
I’ll walk through the explanations of each in this post and I’ll keep track of all my goals and my work towards each one on a new page so you can all hold me accountable!
