Your colors are all set! Now it’s time to dive into fonts.

Follow up: Big Things I'm Doing Differently in 2018

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I always start out the year with high hopes and great aspirations (as evidenced by my last few blog posts and emails).

I love planning and goal setting, but it’s often the easiest part of the process. It’s fun scheming up ideas and making plans; it’s much harder to actually take action and bring them to fruition.

It’s that time of year!

Tomorrow marks the start of 2019 and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the fresh start and clean slate that January 1st brings.

I’ve tried my hand at many different goal-setting planners, journals, and apps for both business and personal use in the past, like the Best Self Journal, Cultivate What Matters PowerSheets, and the 5 Second Journal. And all of them worked well for the season I used them in.

But this year I’m paring down and taking a slightly different approach to setting goals, mapping out my time, and keeping up with my schedule.
