About Me

My photo
My name is Suzanne Conant and we are a military family and have lived around the world!  I work from home and my husband is a Chief Warrant Officer 4 in the U.S Army and this summer of 2010 will have 23 years of active duty service.  We have two teenage boys and we homeschool.  In September of 2008 I found our team and I truly can’t put into words how wonderful it is to actually make an income while still being at home everyday with my kids! One of my favorite things about our team is that our everyday mission is to help others have the same freedom we do!  There is hope out there for you with whatever you’re trying to accomplish and we are here to help you reach your goals!  I'm looking forward to talking to you soon.

Goal Setting Every Piece Counts

Think about the different areas of your life — financial, physical, and intellectual — as pieces in a puzzle. When one or more pieces are missing, you can’t see the entire image. Wellness is similar. When one area is weak, your goal of total wellness cannot be achieved. Every piece counts.

Goal setting is a powerful technique that can yield successful returns in every area of your life. Achieve them, and not only will you be happier and more satisfied, but you’ll be more productive in the areas that matter most in your life.

How to Set Goals

Set goals that fit your lifestyle and what you want to achieve. Set two or three goals in one area, or one in each of several areas. If you have more than one goal in an area, assign a priority to each one.

Set attainable goals. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, establish a healthy long-term plan of losing 1-2 pounds per week, not 30 pounds a month. Think achievement!

Have a balance of short-term and long-term goals. Smart, short-term goals will actually help you achieve your more difficult, long-term goals. And make sure they’re your goals, not someone else’s.

Write them down. A goal is only a wish if it isn’t written down.

Now that you’ve set your goals, follow these simple steps to achieve them. Stay on course by keeping a record of your progress. At the end of the day, or first thing the next morning, make a note of how you are doing. This will help you establish patterns that work. For example, Mondays and Wednesdays may be your best days to work out, while Thursdays are easiest for family gatherings. Work on your goals accordingly.

After you’ve reached a milestone, reward yourself. The reward is up to you.

Don’t give up if you don’t succeed the first try.

Remember, Thomas Edison tried more than 1,000 different filaments before he successfully created the light bulb. Sometimes reaching your goals will take that level of determination.
