How to use your scrapbooking supplies to stick to your goals!

You started the year full of energy, ready to make changes, set your goals for the year and start making progress... It’s March, you look back and realize life happened and you’re not making that much progress (if any at all).

I think most of us can relate to that in one area or another, right?

After years of working on my schedule and goal setting, learning organization techniques and how to beat procrastination, reading a lot of books and blogs on the subject, I can say I’m very focused on my goals and they are all related to what is really important for me.

When Janet invited me to write a tutorial for you, I thought I could share a tip that is a way to keep you accountable and make progress in your goals while having fun because goal setting and organization doesn’t need to be serious and boring.

… and let’s announce it to the world: scrapbookers have so much fun!

I make a layout to set the mood for the year, I write what I’m expecting and what I’m willing to do to meet these expectations. This is kind of a resolutions page, but I don’t write any specific resolutions - those I leave for my bullet journal. I prefer to make it more as an inspiration. I read it once in awhile to remind me of my intentions for the year.

Take a look at the ones I made back in 2015 and 2016.

This is a good way to keep me motivated to achieve my goals and go for what I want out of life. However, it’s not enough to make me accountable. That’s when I create monthly check-ups.

Every month, I make a monthly check-up digiscrap page answering questions that will help me review my progress. All questions are focused on what is important for me and related to the goals I write down for myself. I also add questions just for the sake of recording my life because… hummm… it’s fun.

Take a look at this month check-up I made in Jan, 2011.

This makes me reflect about how I’m living my life, what I’m spending time on and what I can do to bring more joy to my everyday.

So, here’s a list of prompts you can use to create your monthly check-up.

  • My favorite moment...
  • I’m proud of…
  • My greatest challenge…
  • What can I do to overcome it...
  • Something I want to repeat…
  • Something I want to delete…
  • Something I learned…
  • Something I did for the first time…
  • How I felt overall...

I want to invite you to join me in this journey. I love setting goals and doing the monthly check-ups, I’m an action-driven lady who loves feeling accomplished. It will be so nice to have you by my side during this year. Join our digiscrap community, Just Because Tribe Group on facebook and let’s have fun. We share our creations, chat and have fun.
