A-Pin-A-Day Project: January - Setting Goals to Produce!

Welcome to a new year!  A time of renewed hope, goal setting and planning.  Right?

Resolution time has just never been my favorite new year activity . . .  Of course, you know what "they say" about the "best laid plans", right?  Yea, it's just not my greatest strength, especially when it comes to "self-care".  Name one mother that is ACTUALLY good at that.

Take for instance, my Pinterest Board (dun * dun * dun).  Scary!  It is chalk full of good intentions and "best laid plans".

What was supposed to have been a fun project, became a quickly forgotten momentary obsession, or even worse, an envious look at what I don't have!  YUCK!  I despise the tendency to compare myself with others . . . a trap I fall into easily.  I think that is just a woman thing! 

No fear ladies, I have a plan. (Yes, this should frighten you a little.)

I have decided to use my Pinterest Board as a vehicle for setting goals; personal, professional & family goals, for the new year.  Pinterest can, and should be a useful tool, rather than a hindrance or perpetual "time-sucker".

The idea is to use it (Pinterest) as a means of personal accountability to remain consistent through the entire year, God willing.  I would love for you to join me in this journey.  Hey, it's Pinteresting fun . . . enough said.

With all of that in mind I unveil my new blogging series:

This should make all you Pinterest-Junkies very excited (me included)!

This is how it will roll:  

  • I will bring you a new Edition each month at the beginning of the month. Each monthly edition will be focused on a particular theme and will be our assignment for pinning our way to PRODUCTIVITY during 2013!
  • You will spend the month pinning & producing "A-Pin-A-Day" during your regular work week.  The pins you post to your board need to go along with the focus and theme of that month's edition of "A-Pin-A-Day".  Example: December Edition (Holiday Stress); you would pin one pin each day relating to an article, post or project that helps you to relieve holiday stress, encourages you or helps you complete a project or goal.  

  • YOU DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO PIN EVERYDAY!  This should be for accountability purposes and self-motivation, not to stress you out!
  • At the end of the month I will feature another "A-Pin-A-Day" post that will have a link-up.  This will be the place to share your Pin Board for that month's assignment or share a post from you blog relating to your "A-Pin-A-Day" Project. YOU DO NOT have to be a blogger to participate.

Ready to get to some Pinning?
Alright then, this month edition and challenge will focus on the new year and the setting of new goals.
