Happy Sweet Shoppe Saturday everyone and welcome to my first new release of 2013!
I love the beginning of the new year. I love the chance to start fresh with new goals, intentions and projects. But let’s face it, for us creative types, the process of goal-setting can be a little bit, shall we say, boring and intimidating.
Which is why I’ve always loved the idea of One Little Word.
You choose one word to represent your intentions for the year – just one. That’s not so hard, right? But what they don’t tell you is that choosing your word is the easy part! And I’ll admit, despite my love for OLW I haven’t always been the best as keeping my word front and center all year. I’m guessing the same is true for you. We have busy lives! In our tech-driven world, it’s easy to get distracted by important stuff like news and work…and…Facebook.
Which is exactly why I designed this week’s new releases: to give you a fun and creative way to capture your goals and stay focused on your One Little Word all year long.
This week’s release is a tag-team of two scrapbooking template products: Goal-tastic: One Little Word and Goal-tastic: 2013 Goal Tracker. Each set of templates can be purchased individually or as a pair as part of the Goal-tastic: 2013 Goal-Setting bundle:
My reason for packaging these two template sets together is simple. The key to achieving your goals is pairing action with intention. It’s not enough to think about what you’d like to achieve – you have to actually do the work to get there.
That’s one of the things I love about One Little Word – it’s all about intention. You choose one word to focus on throughout the year and then you set actionable goals to bring that word to life. Which brings me to the next release…
This first piece of the Goal-tastic: 2013 Goal-Setting bundle is the Goal-tastic: One Little Word 2013 single template. This 12×12-inch template features 5 journaling prompts designed to get you thinking about your true intentions for why you chose your word for this year:
My One Little Word for 2013 is DETERMINATION. You can read more about how I chose that word here, but for now, here’s a closer look at the layout I designed using the Goal-tastic template:
Here are a few more sample layouts from Team Awesome. I love seeing the mix of words: enjoy, magnify, active, time, intention. Since Brook isn’t doing One Little Word, she chose to use the template to record some of her favorite sayings from her daughter – which is a super cute way to use this template as well!
The second piece of the Goal-tastic: 2013 Goal-Setting bundle is the Goal-tastic: 2013 Monthly Goal Tracker. Once you have set your intentions with your One Little Word for the year, the next step is to take actionable steps toward making your intentions a reality.
But I don’t know about you, in the midst of a busy month, it can be really really easy to completely forget about the goals I set no matter how good my intentions may have been. Which is why I designed these 6×6-inch monthly goal trackers – to give you a creative, fun and easy way to capture your monthly goals and keep them front & center all month long.
Just write down your goals, embellish your page in a creative way that inspires you, print it out and hang it in a prominent place where you’re sure to see it all month long.
This is why I kept the design of these templates clean & simple – so you can embellish them however you like, whether it’s with photos, scrapbooking products or anything else. Because that’s the key, the more you want to stop and admire your design, the more often you’ll be reminded of your goals!
But if you’re looking for a little monthly goal tracker inspiration to get you started, here you go:
Here’s a look at what my January 2013 goal tracker looks like printed out. I have it hanging on my white board where I write out my to-do list so I’m sure to see it everyday.
For my husband Adam’s January goals, I went with a more bold & graphic looking using a photo he chose:
Sugarbabe & Team Awesome member Aly paired her goals with her One Little Word “Be” by creating an embellished phrase using some of her favorite digital scrapbooking products:
And since Team Awesome member Inga isn’t doing One Little Word this year, she decided to pair her monthly goals with an inspiring quote and digital scrapbooking paper:
That’s what I love about these Goal Tracker templates. They can be creatively dressed up or down however you see fit. The only rule is that it inspire YOU to take action on your goals.
