Using Lisa Jacobs’ guide that you can find here, I spent a couple of hours this morning looking back over the past six months. Though the exercise is designed specifically for a creative business, something you could market on Etsy, I chose to use the exercise as more of a life plan check up.
It was eyeopening.
I was brutally honest with myself. I admitted that all I want to do is to write, not make jewelry, not weave chainmaille, not really anything else. I know the odds of making it as a writer. I’ve heard them all my life. That’s why I quit writing for so long. Why fight the odds? Why battle the fear, the procrastination, the anxiety?
Because it’s all I want to do.
I know the stats, and I know how hard it can be.
There was a lot more to the review. I learned a lot about myself. I wrote down what it is I crave in life. I think most people crave similar things-purpose, joy, hope.
I started a blueprint to help me reach some goals in different areas-financial, mental, spiritual, relational.
Do you have a life plan? How often do you review your goals and how to get from where you are to where you want to be? Are you living in fear like I have been most of my life?
