She and my husband both chuckled and teased me a little. I joined in their fun, because my goal setting is a bit more developed and organized than most. In addition to setting a goal, I try to develop a plan to reach the goal. I've found this increases my chance of success.
Like most people in their mid forty's, one of my goals is "to lose weight" but instead of summarizing this into three words, I have a page organizing my health and fitness plan to reach this goal. I'll be honest, my style is a bit detailed and "over the top" (according to my loving family) but it works for me.
My husband told me, "I wouldn't even know where to begin to do what you do, you should make it into a book." Of course, I think this was him teasing me but I took it as a nudge and as I thought about it, I felt as if the Holy Spirit was saying, "Lisa, I think he is on to something". After some prayer and thought, I began the process. It is quite the journey and to format my process for this new book is helping me to zone in even tighter to my goals and more. I look forward to sharing more with you, stay tuned.
