I Want To Tune In!

As we roll into the start of the 2nd quarter, I’m excited to reflect on the past 3 months and prep for the upcoming ones! I’m sharing an episode that I got to record with Amber Brogdon Page on her Cultivate & Celebrate Podcast a few months ago!

During the episode we talk about how to set goals with simplicity & grace! I hope this episode encourages you to dream big & start taking small steps towards making your dream a reality — even if it’s after the first quarter of the year!!

In today’s episode we chat all things:

– How to evaluate the past few months

– Checking in with your overall vision before setting goals

– How to set goals keeping in mind how much time you have in any given season

– Going deeper than setting action steps to make progress on your goals

– Avoiding the “all or nothing” mindset to keep making progress with grace

I hope this episode encourages you to dream big for the next year but also keep in mind that simplicity is key and little by little progress always adds up!

Memorable Moments & Quotes from today’s episode:

14:27  “I look at the routines that I had for myself in the past year, both for life and business routines, and I kind of take some time to be like ‘okay, did these serve me really well, or are there certain things I need to tweak in these routines?’” – Manali

21:37  “Giving yourself the permission to pivot, and to make changes, and to reevaluate, and not be so rigid and stuck to a plan just because we said we were going to do x, y, or z – is so life-giving” – Amber

23:54  “The idea of taking time to work on your business – that was something that I had to learn how to do, especially towards the beginning of my business, but really fiercely blocking off that time is what I feel like allowed me to grow pretty quickly as a photographer when I first started” – Manali”

Be sure to tune in to the full episode to hear more about setting goals, how to avoid the “all or nothing” mindset, and overcoming failure.
