Giving up on your goals already? Here's How to Get Back on Track!

Giving up on your goals already? Here's How to Get Back on Track!

We've all been there: you start off the year with big goals and aspirations, but somewhere along the way, life gets in the way and you fall off the wagon. Maybe you had a setback at work, or you got sidetracked by personal issues. Whatever the reason, it can be tough to get back on track when you feel a little lost. But the good news is that it's never too late to start fresh and get back on the path to achieving your goals. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  • Reconnect with your "why"

One of the reasons people often fall off the wagon is because they lose sight of their "why." Why did you set your goals in the first place? What motivated you to want to achieve them? Take some time to reconnect with your "why" and remind yourself of the bigger picture. If you haven't done a vision board with all your dreams and goals yet, now it's the time!

  • Break down your goals into smaller steps

Sometimes, the reason we feel lost is because our goals seem too big and overwhelming. To make your goals more manageable, try breaking them down into smaller steps. This will help you make progress and feel more accomplished along the way.

  • Identify your obstacles

Another reason we often get discouraged is because we encounter unexpected obstacles along the way. To get back on track, it's important to identify these obstacles and come up with a plan to overcome them. This might mean seeking support from friends or family, or simply rethinking your approach to the problem. If you're struggling with mental health, seeing a therapist might help a lot!

  • Use positive self-talk

When we feel unmotivated, it's easy to fall into negative self-talk and doubt our abilities. To counteract this, try using positive self-talk to remind yourself of your strengths and accomplishments. This will help you stay motivated and focused on your goals. This could be hearing to affirmations first thing is the morning (I love the app Insight Timer for that) or you can write these affirmations and spread all over your place to make it easier to look at them and remind yourself what a badass you are!

  • Practice self-care

Sometimes, the best thing you can do to get motivated again is to take a step back and practice self-care. This might mean taking a break from your goals for a little while and focusing on your mental health and well-being. Remember, taking care of yourself is a crucial part of achieving your goals in the long run.

  • Seek support

When you're feeling lost in life, it can be helpful to seek support from others. This might mean talking to a therapist or counselor, or simply reaching out to a friend or family member for support and encouragement. Remember, you don't have to go through this alone.

  • Create a plan of action

Once you've identified your goals, obstacles, and support system, it's time to create a plan of action. This might mean creating a schedule or to-do list, or simply outlining the steps you need to take to achieve your goals. Having a plan in place will help you stay focused and on track.

  • Take small steps

Remember, getting back on track is a process, and it's okay to take small steps. Start with something manageable and build from there. By taking small steps, you'll be more likely to stay motivated and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

  • Celebrate your successes

Finally, don't forget to celebrate your successes along the way. Whether it's a small accomplishment or a big milestone, take time to acknowledge your progress and give yourself credit for your hard work. This will help you stay motivated and energized as you work toward your goals.

I hope this helps and you can find yourself motivated and crushing your goals in no time! 

5 Reasons to Invest in a Planner for 2023

5 Reasons to Invest in a Planner for 2023

I know what you're thinking: you don't need yet another planner once you downloaded ten different productivity apps or habit trackers on your phone. We get it, we're in the digital world now BUT we still have a generation of people (call us old school if you will) that loves to get shit done on our paper planners! 

I've tried digital planners, the apps and everything out there in the digital space but for me, there's nothing like a good paper planner. Also, studies say, that you're more likely to accomplish your goals if you actually write them down (not type on a screen) - our memories work its magic when we write our goals and plans on paper instead. Trust me! 

I rounded up 5 reason why you should have a new planner for the new year! 

1. Increased Productivity and Organization

One of the biggest benefits of using a planner is the increased productivity and organization it can bring to your daily life. By having a designated space to jot down your tasks, appointments, and commitments, you can ensure that you stay on top of your to-do list and don't miss any important deadlines. Plus, the act of physically writing something down can help you commit the information to memory and prioritize your responsibilities.

2. Improved Time Management Skills

In addition to helping you stay organized, using a planner can also improve your time management skills. By scheduling out your day and week, you can better plan how to allocate your time and make the most of every moment. This can be especially useful for those who struggle with procrastination or have a tendency to overbook themselves (aka, me! lol) 

3. Enhanced Goal Tracking and Achievement

Another advantage of using a planner is the ability to track your progress towards your goals. Whether it's a short-term goal like finishing a project at work or a long-term goal like saving for a down payment on a house, having a planner can help you break down your objectives into smaller, more manageable tasks and monitor your progress along the way.

4. Stress Reduction and Improved Mental Health

The benefits of using a planner go beyond just productivity and organization. By having a clear plan and structure in place, you can reduce stress and improve your mental health. When you know what needs to be done and when, you can feel more in control of your life and less overwhelmed by the demands on your time.

5. Customization and Personalization Options

Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all planners. Today's planners come in a wide range of styles and formats, so you can choose one that best fits your needs and preferences. From traditional bound planners to spiral and discbound, you can find a planner that works for you. Plus, many planners offer the ability to customize and personalize your layout, so you can make it your own and we do it here for you, by the way! 

Have you seen our new 2023 planner? 


What I love the most about this planner is that it was designed by you, yes, our customers got to choose the layout, cover, and binding through polls we sent on emails and social media. You asked, and we listened!  First, this amazing planner, besides being gorgeous, is so functional! With the discbound binding, you can add and remove pages as you go, which means you can use this cover for years to come, you only change the inserts! 

Now, let's talk about the layout! Besides featuring all the amazing reflection pages throughout the planner, we changed a little bit for the weekly pages. Once again, you asked for this layout, and we love how it turned out! On one side of the spread, we have the weekly layout, and on the other side, we have a dot grid page to let your imagination run wild! You can use it to journal, draw, create cute layouts and decorations, take notes at work meetings, etc. 
Also, the pages are colorful in different pastel tones, which works great if you're big into decorating your planner. 

In conclusion, investing in a planner for 2023 is a smart choice for anyone looking to boost their productivity, improve their time management skills, track their goals, reduce stress, and customize their planning experience. So why wait? Start the new year off right by investing in a planner that works for you.
