Hey everyone! I’m back after a week hiatus to enjoy the Christmas holiday with my in-laws. This post is one I wanted to post earlier this month. It goes into how I’m setting up 2016 to be a very productive year. Enjoy!
***This is NOT a sponsored post. I do NOT own a Passion Planner and have NOT received one for this post.***
In a previous post, I wrote about my admiration for the Passion Planner system and how its structure could be used in my life. This post is about how I used their system, but not their planner.
I sat down and seriously thought about what I wanted to accomplish and all that it entailed. I ended up dividing my 11 potential goals into 3 categories: Writing, Crafts by Cori, and Tales from a Polk County Girl. I’ll be breaking down each categories and what the various goals in them are below. Each goal has the steps branched off of it that I needed to do in order to accomplish them.
My Writing Goals:
*Journal Prompts Book
*Bobbin Lace Workbook
My Crafts by Cori Goals:
*Craft Show Prep
This goal was more about how I could bring in more business and sell more.
My Tales from a Polk County Girl Goals:
*The YouTube Channel
*Cooking thru the Book (this one is still in stewing mode)
The Passion Planner system is set up where you work on three things related to your goals each month. I couldn’t limit myself this way. I have 11 goals, all which are continually moving forward and need to be worked on. So I deviated from their system at this point.
In order to achieve these goals, I made up a flex binder (not a surprise for regular readers) with each goal and its completion steps.
I, then, made a monthly target/task list, where I took the first step of each goal and wrote it down. My monthly goal is to work through this list, getting as many tasks accomplished as possible. I understand that some tasks may take longer than a month to complete, and I may be expecting too much from myself, but I have a Go Big Or Go Home mindset.

The completion steps lists will also double as a progress log. I will be making monthly progress entries so that I know where I am in the project. Here’s what my very first monthly target/task list looks like:
Wish me luck, people!
For those that do mind-map, set goals, and/or use the Passion Planner, I hope you are able to accomplish what you’ve set out to do.
For those who want to set goals and work to accomplish them, good luck. Don’t be afraid to take baby steps. Remember the saying: Rome wasn’t built in a day. (Something I’ll have to remind myself of, no doubt.)
