MARCH into Action

We're marching into the end of March and I wanted to check in with you to see how you're doing with those 1st Quarter Goals we talked about back in January.
We've only got one more week until one-fourth of this New Year is over. So pull out that great Vision Board you made earlier (see my blog called "Forget Resolutions Do  a Vision Board Instead") and those 1st Quarter S.M.A.R.T. Goals and ask yourself the hard questions.
How is it going so far?
Are you staying focused on your S.M.A.R.T. Goals? (see my blog on "Make '08 Great Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals").
What have been your successes so far?
What has gotten in the way?  Life has a way of interrupting us and sending us in different directions. Sometimes that is beyond our control and sometimes it is within our control. So what has gotten in the way and was it beyond your control?
As you evaluate the first quarter of 2008, congratulate yourself on any specific goals you have met that you set for yourself. Maybe they're not totally completed, but if you have made forward progress that, in itself, is worth a pat on the back.
If some of the goals you have written are still just words on a piece of paper, what step or steps could you take in the remaining days of March to March you forward?
Sometimes a task seems so overwhelming for us, it just feels like too much effort, time, and energy are needed. We keep looking for those giant blocks of time in which to do the task. Often in our busy lives those giant blocks don't show up.
Try taking a tiny step, a small step, a baby step to move that goal you wrote in January from a state of inertia to forward motion.
Which goal is gnawing at you the most?
Are you beating yourself up a bit that it isn't further along in its completion?
Stop listening to your inner critic and pick one Action Step you can take to march this forward. After that is complete, think about what is the next logical step to take for this goal.
Let me know at how you moved one of your goals from frozen to forward. What made the difference for you? How did that feel as you moved toward completion?
Until next time.
Making Your Space a Special Place.
