Write it down. How visualizing my goals and writing them down is actually changing my life.

Write it down. How visualizing my goals and writing them down is actually changing my life.

I know it may sound trite, but if you want to get something done if there’s a thing you want to achieve- Write it down! Putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, brings life to the goals you set for yourself. It’s a notion that’s thrown out there a lot, you read about in all the top lifestyle publications or self-help books, but I always kind of thought it was a thing successful people said because they like to hand out advice like candy to their little children who look up to them. I started this year with a GOALS post, what I have always started is a bullet journal. In it, I began a vision board and goals tracker pages. I have goals for this blog, goals for my novel, fitness and health goals, daily goals, weekly and monthly goals. I’m literally so full of goals, I had no idea I was so ambitious!

I’m not just pumping BS out there, I really believe in the power you give a thing when you write it down. It can have the power to motivate you to get that something done. I’ve always been a list maker, not a lot of things bring me more satisfaction than checking something off a to-do list. Goal tracking gives that satisfaction plus the added bonus of achieving whatever badass thing you wanted to accomplish.

We are a bout a month and a half into the New Year, and this is where I’m currently standing with the goals I’ve set for myself.

Money Saving: About 500 of the 1,000 for our trip to Hawaii

Health and Fitness: Wanted to lose 10lbs in 4 months, I’ve lost 5!

Novel: Finsh Chapters 1-3 by the end of February (Already done it)

Blogging: I want to do 2 posts a month (minimum) This is my 4 th post this year !


It’s really not a bunch of crap. I am now a believer of the goal tracking lifestyle. Everyday I wake up with a purpose, I think about all the things I want to accomplish and look in my journal for the inspiration. Hope you enjoyed the share.


Aloha Beaches!
