Why setting easy goals is the secret to goal setting success


You don't need to wait to set new year's resolutions to start on a new goal. And it's ok if you choose an easy goal. After all, easy goals can lay the groundwork for the more challenging ones. And, not all goals need to take months or years to accomplish. Some can be done in a matter of days. And those easy goals can quickly help you gain momentum towards something more significant. Easy goals don’t always start out easy In August last year, I set myself a goal of drinking one litre of water daily.  Sounds pretty easy, right? Wrong. You may be wondering why I set [...]

How different types of goals help you achieve success


I've done a lot of work on goal setting lately. And I've discovered there are a few different types of goals. And the type of goal can be broken down to make sure your goals are a success. So, there are a few different ways to classify goals. And I like to break them into two main categories, then break those down further based on a timeframe.

Bucket List vs. Habit Goals Bucket list goals are the ones that you want to check [...]

Perhaps you were being too ambitious when you first started setting goals. Or maybe your life has changed in a way that you didn’t expect, like losing your job or having a breakup.

I don’t know about you, but I have tried so many decluttering challenges. Every man and their dog seems to have one.

The Power of an Anti-Morning Routine: Embracing Your Own Unique Flow


There can be a lot of pressure to try to fit in as much as you can in the morning. Gurus flaunt the ideals of waking up before your kids. Journalling, exercising and doing some form of self-care before doing anything else. Yet that doesn’t seem realistic. For me, my house is not designed in a way that shuts rooms off from one another. If you played music in any room of the house, you could hear it from each and every other room. Except maybe the garage. So it’s not practical for me to be doing much before anyone [...]
