    This episode dives into the "trifecta of dream stealers" that keep us stuck, and make us go right down the schedule shame path.
     
    I also share a little bit tough love too because with my coaching clients, I see this scenario happen all too often: we get the fancy planner, hook up the googles and other calendars, and we don't develop a process to use any of them.

    110 Tame Your Time Series Annual Goal Setting - Carpe Diem

    110 Tame Your Time Series Annual Goal Setting - Carpe Diem

    Today I'm continuing on with my Tame Your Time series talking all things annual goals and how to create your very own vision board! Why do we resist planning ahead? It's because by nature we are actually lazy, and our normal tendency is to do what's easy. This causes fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants kind of problems. I show you how NOT to do that! 
    You can also see how I've been setting up my new Knitter's Planner page-by-page so you can set yourself up for success here:
    https://www.karagottwarner.com/UnpluggedWednesday to see the video of my vision board and my philosophy when it comes to annual goal planning.
    When you understand why we procrastinate or avoid doing what's hard -- that's when we are on to ourselves. That's when we actually have to tools to do something about it.
    In The Knitter's Planner, and in most planners, you'll find this section. In this episode, I share the HOW and WHY of checking-in daily with your highest goals, and why writing and re-write them sets you up for success. 
    I also talk about something called a vision board, and how I like mine to look like something out of an art journal. I also riff on how I started this process many years ago, and how it inspires me to stay connected to my goals. 
    A vision board is a space that is up to wherever your imagination takes you. Add quotes, affirmations, paste in pictures from magazines ... whatever.
    There's no right or wrong way. Just YOUR way!
    When it comes to annual goal planning, The Knitter's Planner allows space for 3 big goals because studies have shown that any more than 3 could make it difficult to stay committed to any of them.
    Stay small to go BIG.
    I want you to achieve extraordinary success, and if you take the time to plan the goals that will move the needle in your life that will make all your other goals easier or unnecessary you will blow your own mind at the end of 2020.
    I also talk about the 3 quadrants that I make sure to include in my annual goals: (in this order)
    Health and wellness Relationships Work/business Choosing goals in one of these 3 quadrants creates a harmonious way to counterbalance each area.
    Action Step - If you've purchased your knitter's planner, open it to your 2020 annual goals page and map out your goals for 2020. Don't delay. Make it happen!
    Have you purchased your planner yet? You still have time to get it before the new year! www.karagottwarner.com/knittersplanner and you'll get my free planning guide + planning printables just for clicking to learn more.
    Then, when you purchase your planner, send me your proof of purchase and I will send you a super-cute, quick-knit mitered purse pattern just in time for gift giving!

    108 You Are Worthy

    108 You Are Worthy

    Sometimes we keep striving, and doing because we think we are not enough. We are enough. We are DOING enough. We are worthy.
    When you believe you are worthy and enough, then you don't second guess yourself. You don't let yourself down. You put one foot in front of the other. You keep on truckin.'
     
    Why you need a planning process ...
     
    I live by my planner - it helps me to find my lead domino every day to help me move the needle forward in my life. 
     
    Without a planner, I would be a victim of my circumstances, and who needs that when you can CHOOSE your daily destiny! 
     
    Think of a planner as a self-care tool, not a wasteland of sticky notes, which is why I helped create a new all-in-one planner and knitter's notebook, called The Knitter's Planner.
