New Year's Goals

New Year's Goals

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR 2020 PLANS & TRULY REACH YOUR GOALS

IT’S DAY 2, TIME TO GET STARTED ON THOSE GOALS.

Now that the holidays (and their hangovers) are officially over, we can step back and get a little perspective!This first few days of the year gives us the clarity to tackle our goals. As you may know from this post or this one, I never try any new year’s resolutions. I have, however, been working on a few goals for the past three to four months.

IN THAT TIME, I HAVE BEEN USING A SET FORMULA TO TACKLE THESE GOALS.

First off, I think of a few broad categories that I would like to address in the next few months. I write out the highest priority topics. [Last quarter they were: marriage, home, blog, finance. This quarter I went a little easier on myself with just three goal categories: love, home, and blog.] These quarter categories are then broken up into a few line items I think I would like to (and have the ability to) work on in the next three months.

With each line item I assess. I think about whether I can work on this in the set time frame and actually find a measurable end, this becomes the goal.

IN ORDER TO REACH THE GOAL, I HAVE TO BREAK IT UP, INTO MY ACTION PLAN.

Here I list all of the things that need to be done — no particular order or time deadlines. I’ll add those later. The action plan is the portion in which I will decide which tasks to place where on my calendar. This is how I create my timeline. Certain tasks each month will help me reach my goal in digestible chunks over the course of the quarter.Those chunks are often spread out over weeks. Sometimes they are as simple as finding pricing for a certain product or researching a class online. Each chunk (my tasks) are items I can check off as done, pending, migrated, or delegated.

I plot all of this out in my bullet journal. If you click here you can download a printable version of the ways I map out my quarter goals. I included an easy sample video in case you want to see it’s application, too. Let me know how it goes!

What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 


How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!


Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
