    Hi Erin! I did read this last month and made some notes then. Today I came back to it to see how I progressed over 1 month. I would give myself a grade of D. So, I need work harder towards my goals, set them much smaller to start and stay focused on one small goal at a time! I printed out this post btw, my friend! Despite the incredible love I have for your food it’s one of my favorite posts of yours. 🙂 🙂

      Oh, no, a D! That’s not good! Hopefully breaking your goals into smaller chunks will help. Also, are you are writing them down and staying focused on them? I am reading The 12-week year: Get more done is 12 weeks than you do in 12 months http://amzn.to/2kkIx8y. You might like it as well 🙂

    Erin, these are some great goals and I wish you the best in achieving them all. I know that you have it in you to achieve every single one of these. I have lots of goals in my head, I need to do better about writing them down and setting a time limit. Can you lend me the time that I need so I can get it done? LOL I will be putting this on my to-do list!

      Thanks, Nikki! I’ve taken the time to set goal, got them on my chalkboard and I’m ready for the year! Definitely get your goals down on paper. I think this makes all the difference as to whether they come true or not. I wish you all the best in 2017! Cheers.
