Today, as I cut two batches of fresh soap, I thought about my shop, the past year, and how I plan to grow (in both a personal and business sense) in 2010.
Like loaves of soap, formed from an idea, cut into bars, ready to be placed on the curing rack until ready for use, my mind is carving out my future endeavors, deciding how to solidify my dreams.
Have you put together solid plans for 2010? Or, like me, have you made sure most plans are in order, ready for accomplishment (written and measurable), with a few ideas still dangling? Perhaps you know what you want to do, but you are not sure when or how it is going to happen.
I treasure the idea of making things happen.
I see good things evolving. Many are reaching out to better themselves. Many are taking classes, planning businesses, re-thinking budgets, arriving at a calmer place in life. Some of these self-improvements were forced on by the economy, but evolved into wonderful opportunities for the future.
How many times have you said, “I’ve always wanted to do that!” Think about it…what have you always wanted to do? What is holding you back?
I am going to do what I have dreamed of doing. And the only way to do it is to take the first steps, then keep moving.
How about you?
May the dreams of your past be the reality of your future. Author Unknown
