I’ve seen people tackle goal-setting in many different ways. Some write down very clear, concise goals and others (like myself) enjoy setting intentions.
This year, I have been thinking long & hard about what I want 2014 to be for me, and what kind of legacy I’d like to leave behind. Who do I want to be this year? What kinds of things do I want to accomplish, and more importantly why?
It got me thinking all the goals I have set for myself over the years (both dreamy + extravagant and simple), and what those goals mean to me. Sure, goals are a great tool for getting sh*t done, but lately I’ve been wanting to go deeper.
I think it’s important to reflect upon WHY you set those goals for yourself in the first place, and what the meaning is behind those goals.
Then there are also those goals you’ve had forever…that you’ve failed to meet. WHY did you set this goal in the first place, and what is holding you back from achieving it? And just as importantly, is it even something that you really desire? These are the questions I’ve been asking myself…and am now asking you too.
After lots of thinking + tea-sipping + writing, I have decided my word, my legacy, for 2014 is IMPACT.
I want to help touch people, change someone’s perspective, inspire, grow…leave my mark.
2014 will be the year
I publish a book,
grow in my career with sweetgreen,
challenge myself in ways I never thought I could,
marry the love of my life,
and write (a lot).
Yesterday I decided to start an “impact journal,” similar to a gratitude journal although I will write down one thing I do each day that has positively impacted someone/something.
Because I’ve realized I find the greatest appreciation & gratitude for myself in the things I do to IMPACT others.
Stay tuned for lots more on this!
Lots of love,
