I looked at my Passion Planner and reviewed my monthly goal for January 2015.
I have 3 learning/business goals for January:
- Read a Dan Kennedy Book
- Put an email catcher for positivelyawesome.com
- Update my VA blog
Hoooraaayyy! I just put green check marks on the 3 goals!
I know these are fairly easy goals but would you believe that last year these 3 items were also in my list … together with the numerous goals that I have set for my self?
Surprise: I wasn’t able to achieve a single one of them.
Sure, reading a book is so easy for me — but the fact is I wasn’t able to do it
Putting an email catcher in my blog — well, to be honest, it’s a struggle being a non-techie.
Updating this VA Blog — I’ve been postponing this for ages!
Got so overwhelmed with my To Do List and List of Goals last year that I decided to take a different approach this year.
My mantra: Take it slowly and enjoy the learning process.
Josh Kaufman said in his book, The First 20 Hours: How To Learn Anything Fast, that in order to learn faster, you have to start learning a skill that you love, set a learning time for that skill and learn 1 skill at a time.
In short: Take it slowly and enjoy the learning process.
Well, I’m taking his advice kasi it’s working for me. For those who have limited time to read (shame on you!), here’s a visual book review from sachachua.com:
How about you? Share mo naman which goals have you checked for January 2015?
Don’t worry if it’s mababaw lang… Believe me, these tiny weenie steps are good part of gaining confidence… na kaya mo pala!
Good job, Jones!
Live A Positively Awesome Life,
P.S. Yehey! May email catcher na ako!
Pinagpawisan ako ng marami in THINKING how to do it, pero when I actually DID it, ay sus! 45 minutes tapos!
I’m using MailMunch. What email catcher app do you use?
