My Lara Casey PowerSheets Update
We’re now four months into using the PowerSheets by Lara Casey. Let me start off by sharing my biggest lesson – you have to use them if you want them to work.
Blank Spaces isn’t just the name of a Taylor Swift song. It was the theme of my September. I wrote almost nothing in September’s sheets! Nothing! I have a lot of reasons (birthday, client work, blogging, R+F, daycare), but in the end, the result was a blank month. I am a little disappointed in myself for not filling out my birthday month. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last few years, it’s this: move forward. There’s no sense in wistfully thinking about “what if.” Just friggin’ keep moving.
I did well with August – filling up my sheets and checking off tasks. One of the pages is a Relationship Tending List. You jot down a few people and write down how you’ll tend to them. You could take them to coffee, send a note, drop off a treat and so on. Honestly, I blank out every month on this page. I know. I should be able to pick four people and just go. But I don’t.
Come November, I know exactly which four people I want to ‘tend to.’ Sorry, July, August, September and October folks. You all got shafted.
I did fill out October’s goals and pages, and I plan to get my November pages filled out this weekend. This workbook has been an eye-opener on what I’m willing to put on paper – goals, problems, feelings and accomplishments. It also showed me how tight-lipped I can be about secret goals.
Going forward, I will put them down on paper. I believe in writing out (or saying aloud) your intentions. There’s a better chance of my getting to my goals if I can see them on the wall every day than shuttered in a box somewhere!
This workbook is not a planner. The contents may be transferred to your planner or lead your planner life. But it is not a planner. I have a separate notebook for calendaring. These PowerSheets are for you to set yourself up for success in what you want to do for the year (or further!).
If you’re even thinking a teensy bit about goal setting, planning what you want to do or be or accomplish next year, please consider ordering these PowerSheets. They are worth the money. I’d love to have more power partners on these goal setting workbooks!
