It's 2017 and...

 

I hate resolutions.

I'm the worst at them. 

I literally follow through for about 2 weeks on maybe 1 or 2 of them out of my list of about 100 resolutions I'm definitely going to do this year. 

Then, of course, I end up doing the same things I did last year and feel like I really didn't grow much in my life, my business or my relationship with God.

Ever felt that way?

So here's what I'm proposing: something kind of crazy and also insanely freeing.

FORGET RESOLUTIONS!!

Throw them by the wayside!

You and I don't need them.

Instead, let's embrace "Make It Happens".

What are "Make It Happens"?

They are a small amount of items that you are actually going to do.

This small amount will be different for everyone and the kind of items will also be different. The point is to take intentional, focused time to sit down and dig into what you really want to accomplish in 2017.

How do you do this? I'm so glad you asked!

Here are the 3 steps you need to take:

1. Schedule some serious alone time to plan, dream and vision. 

Put your phone away, go to a coffee shop or restaurant or out in nature, bring lots of pens and paper and brain dump away! Write down every dream, goal, vision you have for this year...and don't edit yourself! The point of this is to write everything down.

2. Now it's time for 12, 3, 1.

My dad taught me to always 12, 3, 1 whenever you go to a conference, read a book or are planning your year. Out of your big list, pick 12 things you should, 3 things you could do, and 1 thing you will do. 

Of course I know you're saying, "Anni, only one thing? For the whole year? That's lame." Here's the deal though: would you rather get one thing done than think about getting 99 things done? 

The magic about this system is the fact that once you get one thing done, you will actually get the next 3 things done and then you'll move onto the 12! Try it! You'll be shocked at how much you accomplish.

3. Stop looking left and right. 

Comparing your "Make It Happens" to other people's will guarantee you not accomplishing anything for the year. Your "Make It Happens" should and will be different than even your very best friends'. 


Whether in your business, your marriage, relationships and life, focus on the most important "Make It Happens" rather than the "should have resolutions."

Once you've finished the process, go out and share! Accountability about your goals is one of the best ways to make sure they will actually happen.

Share below some of your "Make it Happens"! 

Can't wait to see what you accomplish this year!

XOXO,

Anni
