Recently, I have changed the way that I plan and dream. I have been doing things in a very intentional way. My word for the year so far has been just that. Intentional. Having dreams and aspirations without intent is fine, but nothing is promised or purposed. So let’s see what it takes to get from dreaming to making moves
By being intentional with the way that I think, there are always action steps coming along with whatever it is that I am thinking. I have been creating very specific and strategic plans, and the fruits of my labor have been arriving and “showing out” in many ways. I find it helpful to create borders along with steps so that I always have room to take a relaxed or strict approach with whatever it may be that I am working towards.
Here are some things that help me the most:
Deadlines: They should be detailed and set in stone, not pushed back. It just prolongs my process and progress.
Visuals: Webs, Charts, and Sketches are all great ways to map out your thoughts in order to make sure your other steps fall in line with the ultimate vision.
Discipline: No excuses! Self-control is necessary to stay on task and stay motivated!
Just do it!
I am a bonafide overthinker. I will think things through while opportunities pass me by. I struggle with this idea of a “transition” daily. The only thing that I can really say is, know when it is time to get to work, and JUST DO IT! Whether it be blogging, exercising, or skincare! Know when it’s go-time, and make it happen. Do not wait for the sake of perfect planning. JUST DO IT!!
Taking control matter in all sorts of situations. It’s part of the process of growing up but you’ve got to take action! For example, when you’re looking for a cute and creative idea to ask a girl to prom, you’ve got a better chance if you’re self-confident. Just walk up to your dream girl and ask her. Just do it!
