OK champ, as you may know, last week I promised to share some goal-getting tips with you.
So that’s what I’ll do today.
But first, a warning: this one might hurt.
You up for it?
(I’m exaggerating, obviously. You’ll be fine! Go on, keep reading!!).
It’s a strategy I’ve always been pretty good at implementing, but I was reminded of it recently when reading an excellent book by Jon Acuff.
Here it is:
You can have it all but you can’t do it all.
In order to achieve what you want this year, you’re gonna have to drop something.
So, what are you gonna drop?
I have to drop stuff from my priority list all the time. I’m a Mum to a 10 month old baby, I run a business and team of people, I travel half the year for work (with said baby) and I’ve got to start training for the Mountain Run at the Kathmandu Coast to Coast next Feb too. Yep, I’m a big dog – very busy and important ??
But seriously, I can’t do all those things without dropping a few other priorities…..like laundry!
For real, if you’re following me on Insta, check out the photo I shared earlier today.
Here’s a list of things I’ve dropped from my priority list:
Grocery shopping (now I have the same online order delivered every week)
Laundry (to be clear, I do wash! But I’ve asked for help from my Mum and Michael to get it done, and I outfit repeat like nobody’s business)
Social media (I schedule time to share posts, and I stick to that schedule)
Decorating my house (I keep it spartan. Less stuff = less stuff to clean!)
So, what are you going to drop?
Can you say “No” to having dinner out twice a week, or give up your Netflix binges for a few weeks?
Remember, you can have it all but you can’t do it all. – Tweet it!
No pain – no gain!
Let me know what you’re gonna drop over in the comments below.
And if you need some help coming up with things to drop, check out the comments list as well! We can share some ideas together.
Until next week,
