There is very little I find more useless than New Year’s resolutions, that said, I know soooo many people who have been incredibly successful doing just that. SO do as you see fit. I’m just here to introduce you to the idea of setting some goals or even a goal for yourself.
In July of 2015 I was feeling quite stuck. You know that feeling that you should be doing something more… but what? and how? and why bother? I had been feeling that way in a few aspects of my life for some time. When I say “some time,” I’m not saying since May. I’m saying since about June at least three years earlier (if not before that), and when I say “a few aspects of my life,” I mean “most.” At that time I decided to undertake what I called “The Great Unsticking of 2015.” I recorded my progress on my other blog, where I had set multiple goals for myself knowing some would be met and others would need to be carried over. Thanks to an immense amount of support from the blogging community and IRL friends, I met with a decent amount of success. So much so, that I decided offering and enlisting further support of like-minded readers such as yourselves may be helpful in a shared effort to meet ongoing goals. Help another and help yourself. After all, life is dynamic, one objective is met and evolves into something new. Thus CARROT was created.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
― Barack Obama
In the service of motivational example, some of CARROT will be anecdotally personal- both yours and mine. Hopefully CARROT will also offer information, and a place to ‘hang out’ and remain motivated through supportive banter in a no pressure, non-judgemental, non-threatening environment.
Are you working on any goals or resolutions? Are there any particular motivational topics you would like to see addressed in CARROT?
NEXT: What’s your vision like?
