It’s time to get ready for the new year, RG2E Peeps!
And here’s how RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner does it…
I love this time of year and not just because of the presents I receive for Christmas. I like the symbolic thought of a new year with new goals and a clean slate so to speak. I bought my 2013 planner before Thanksgiving and have just been staring at it excited to start writing things down. But writing down goals is just a small step to the whole picture of putting the actions in motion to realize your goals. More importantly you have to have the ability to push through the hard times when things happen that threaten to derail you from your path.
I am a firm believer of mind over matter and having a positive frame of mind that is focused on what needs to happen and having the faith that it will, is the hardest part.
My routine it to set my goals, create a vision statement for the year as if I had already achieved those goals, and then create milestones for those goals with weekly and monthly actions to meet those milestones. I then revisit my progress and plan monthly (or so) and have learned over the years to not beat myself up if things aren’t moving as fast as I would have hoped. As I work on finishing up my plan for 2013 I would love to hear about yours and how you keep yourself motivated throughout the year.

All is going well until they happen to find a dead body in the shop and that wasn’t part of the business plan. All signs pointed to Berklie since it was her ex-husbands lover who was murdered. Trixie knew Berklie hadn’t murdered Sylvia so who did?
