Do you ever set yourself a goal or a series of goals?
I’m a big to do list maker. I have a daily one, a weekly one and also a general one which I guess is kind of like a goal list.
At the end of April I made the big step to leave employment and begin a journey of discovery by setting up my own marketing business.
It’s not the first time I’ve been in business. I had a successful ecommerce business for ten years which I lost … spectacularly. The loss started in 2012 and took years to resolve.
I might feel that I can write about it one day. It might be cathartic. Even now after almost 6 years from when the problems started it still feels very raw.
It took me that 6 years to understand that I thrive best working for myself despite having success with my time back in employment.
Goals Are Important To Me
I have to be able to visualise what I want to achieve and how that looks. I am also a tad materialistic in that I like to treat myself when I’ve had a success or reached a certain goal. The treats can vary so much depending on what I’ve accomplished. Sometimes it’s only a cake! Lol … I’m a simple girl who loves her food .. what can I say?
I might treat myself to getting my nails done or buy a new lipstick.
Sometimes it’s a longer term goal like thinking about a big piece of renovation work on the house or planning a trip.
The Next Goal I Want To Achieve …
I hope that by the end of September in my new business I will be able to reward myself with the heavenly rainbow bag above from Kurt Geiger. It sold out last time it was on their shelves earlier this year so I’m hoping it stays around long enough for me to get mine. Fingers crossed.
My Promise To Myself & My Goal Is …
That the bag will be my reward once I am able to match my monthly take home pay from my time in employment. I’m hoping to have achieved that by the end of September. Fingers crossed again.
I recently went into Kurt Geiger and had a touch and feel of it! There was a slight problem though. I spied a smaller version and a back pack and shoes and trainers!! OMG!! What’s a girl to do?
I’m going to be strong though and stick by my original decision as I think I’ll get most use from it.
