Inspired Life

We have no way of knowing what life will bring when we sit down and try to plan out 12 months at a time. 2020 should have been a good lesson in that. Sometimes, I have to repurpose my steps into something a little different than I planned. But any time is a good time to get fired up about a goal.  

So, as you think about your goals, let’s find an EASY way to get there.  

Life, Repurposed

Set EASY Goals 

E – Exciting: They have to make you want it enough to give up something else. You get so lost in the pursuit of it you forget other things and eagerly set aside time. 

A – Actionable: This simply means you CAN do it. The goal can be huge, but it’s within your ability to set action steps to get it done.  

S – Systematic: Something that is systematic is done according to plan. Systems can be tracked and measured. If you don’t have a method or a system for getting there, you won’t take action.  

Y – Yours: This is key to success. Your goals have to be YOURS. What excites someone else might not excite you. Someone else’s motivation won’t be the same as yours. Personalize them to you! 

Your goal will probably be a hard EASY goal. But you can do it! 

Recommended Resource

  1. Join the Facebook group – find the group post and declare your EASY goal. 
  2. Find a place to track your goal steps. A white board, sticker chart, bulletin board, etc. I mentioned Trello in the show. It’s a great free tool for organizing plans and lists.  
  3. Use the 1-2-3 Ideas and Progress Journal: For Achievers & List Lovers (A 3-month journal for people who don't love journaling) 


This 90-day journal was madefor achievers who love to check boxes yet need to think outside of the box. It’s set up for creating one big goal and two smaller ones Monday through Friday and a separate weekend plan. But you could specifically use it for a 90-day goal and al the tracking and brainstorming that goes with it.  

See some sample pages and learn more about the journal designs.
