New Year’s day I woke at 11:00am. Not the best start to the new year so I decided to head out for a run. It was chilly but I did a 6k. “Not too shabby”, I was thinking until I realized my running app didn’t record the run... did it still count?
Of course it counts. At the beginning of 2018 I couldn’t even run 5 metres. Through slow, steady perseverance, I progressed bit by bit. As I look over my runs last year and the tiny improvements I made every week it’s amazing that they added up to where I am today.
And this is the importance of goal setting. It is so easy to get discouraged in the moment and to think ‘how does this count”. But when you document it, you can look back and see where your have been, see the progression, pumping you up for the resiliency necessary for the road still to travel.
So lets do it with our Quilting goals. I’ve said many time that quilting is a marathon hobby. It takes stamina to finish that last stitch on the binding. Or save for that quilting cruise. Documenting your goals will help you get there.
My latest Youtube is about just that. Goal setting in 4 steps
I have provided a couple of planning sheets for those that need them.
Please share your goals with me. I love to hear what you have planned for 2019.
