What’s Your Dream? Goals for 2022…

Ok, so I have started thinking about next year and the things I want to accomplish. Does anyone else do this now or do you wait till New Years to roll around? I do a preliminary list of things I would like to see happen. Just a quick to do’s, nothing fancy yet…that comes into play on New Year’s Eve. Then I sit down and write out a detailed list with bullet points and descriptions of how I see it playing out. This is what I do every year.

But here’s the thing… I am not very organized. I want to be, really, I do, but my squiggle line personality does not always let me work that way. I make my list and I check it twice…hmmmm…that sounds familiar LOL. Santa must be very organized! But something always happens that steers me off course. It’s me…I steer myself off the beaten path time and time again and hardly ever get the list done. I do get to cross off a few things here and there; I’m not a total schlub; I just wish I was a little bit more on the straight and narrow sometimes.

This coming year I am going to try something different. I made a big change this year by deciding to leave my job, live on some savings for a bit and do what I always wanted to do…write. It was scary, but for once I did it anyway. I started the blog, and I am really happy with the results so far. I am also in a network marketing company as an independent consultant. I joined because I love the products and wanted to show people how amazing they are. (No worries, I am not going to mention the company or try to sell on here. Just mentioning what I am up to.) The different is that I am going to break the mold that involves the lazy and whatever attitude and the fear about putting myself out into the world.

Fear…that’s the big one. Fear people will laugh, fear that I am annoying people, fear of failure…blah, blah, blah. You get the point. I have been taught my whole life to be afraid of not succeeding, so I never really did anything. Well gang, I am finally tired of that noise. I am finally tired and annoyed with myself. (Has anyone else been there?)

In order to make my dreams come true (and yes, dreams can come true) I have to put in the work. I have to sit down every day and work on them. No distractions, no going off point and no lazy thoughts of “I can do it tomorrow”…because in my experience, I don’t always get back to it tomorrow. It just sits there on my list laughing at me until I make excuses of why it doesn’t even need to get finished. And then I make a new list without that particular thing on it, and I feel “better” about my list. Come on Tracie, you can do better than that.

So, the time is now. Start today, don’t wait for the New Year in a few weeks. I need to make the big list now and get moving. Whenever I get in this mode, I think of the t.v. show Fame. In the middle of the song the dance teacher says, “You got big dreams? You want fame? Well fame costs and right here is where you start pain and sweat….”

I don’t particularly need fame or glory, but I do have big dreams and it’s time to get rolling on them before another year is over and I am still in the same place as i am right now. Let the games begin…

****Question for the comments…Do you set goals yearly? What kind of system do you use to follow through? Any tips for success?

Hi, I'm Tracie. I am a writer, reader, life coach, lover of the city and the beach. I am a big fan of all things caffeinated. I dig things from many different decades, but am a definite child of the 80's. My blog is about everything and anything my mind conjures up. Enjoy the ride.

  1. L.O.L. That post had SOOO many movie quote answers. I’ll just say
    this, the beginning of “Pretty Woman”. Ok, since we are 2 sides of the same coin, I FINALLY figured it out. Chip away, chip away chip away (NOT Camp Chippewa!) Also, I actually just today unfollowed 2 FB pages because eh! nah, not feeling them and one has been on my Bucket List for decades. I’ve got my new planner coming and can’t wait to get into that. But…I digress… Look at the big goal and break it into chunks amd smaller chunks, etc. till you just have daily to-do’s. But Tracie knows this!
    Awesome and enjoyable as always.

  2. I’m so unorganized…I like to think I trust in God and His blessings are always better then I was ever thinking…and the huge dreams and goals I think are grand shrivel to raisins when God chimes in and reveals what’s really important…sometimes he shows me in the Bible from a simple scripture or a particular story will guide me in the way to go…but for me I have this one particular dream /goal thing all rolled up in one huge collaboration and its name is called “Palolo” …it’s been a work in progress now for several years and it’s been a slow move forward but it feels like it’s gaining momentum in the right direction…it’s big enough to know that I can’t do it without God and the help of my family…as each year goes by I pray for palolo!

      1. Wow James – that was a great answer and very well written! I was just gonna answer Tracie’s question with a “not bloody likely” … I don’t set yearly goals and I don’t have a tried and true system … but it is true that I desire to follow hard after God and go where he leads. I do believe that Palolo is a unique serene and exciting place that is in your blood 😉
