December 13 – Action When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? (Author: Scott Belsky).
Action is the hard part. I can dream all day about what I could do and would do, but actually doing it is a whole 'nother thing!
In the past, I haven't really held myself accountable for making things happen. Well, that's not exactly true. I used to be very accountable. I did what I needed to do to get where I am. BUT, lately, I've been more complacent about actually achieving my goals.
The best way I've found to keep myself on track is to make a list. I LOVE checking off lists! So much that I will do whatever I have to do just so I can put down another check. Sometimes, I even cheat a little and list things I've already done. That way, I get to check off even more!!
I have a few ACTIONS that I'm currently taking to change my life. They're not huge and they're not abstract, because, really, they are the things on my list. The small, but tangible steps that I have to take.
One action on my list is to build an inventory of handmade, unique-but-general, Baby Shower invitations, Birthday Party invitations, Thank You cards, and more. I'm trying to make enough to host a table at a local farmer's market. I've been able to get a good start already since my time off from work. This will, hopefully, help promote as well as fill the gaps between my custom jobs.
