Two New Journals

Celebrate every step on your path to your goal!


Whatever your circumstances, however far away your goal,  there is always something worth celebrating. This 90-day journal is designed to ensure it doesn't slip your notice. Reminders to record what you are grateful for and what you can celebrate. Room for affirmations, to-do lists, appointments and notes. Daily tips, assessment and count-down.


The same great content in a more classic style. Begin each day by reviewing your goal and writing an affirmation that will help you visualize your success. End each day with the self-assessment: How positive did I stay today? How productive was I today? Special check-ups every fifteen days help you reflect on your progress.


Let's Talk About Goals

For some of you, goal-setting may be the most challenging part of using The Celebration Journal or The Road to Success Day Planner. You don't fall into that group of people who've already identified projects they need to accomplish in the coming quarter and can easily describe what they hope to achieve. This part of the system leaves you stymied. You stare at the blank space where you're supposed to record your goal and have no idea what to write. Nothing feels big enough to refer to as your goal. Or it feels too big and you hesitate to commit it to the page where it will live to mock you for your failure. You need to get over those feelings. By writing your goal every day you will be giving yourself permission to change your mind, to focus on the big or small, long-term or immediate. But you need to write something.

Read on to find four options to help you conquer goal-setting.
