Want to Get a Head Start in 2017? How to Plan Your Perfect Year.

Sacramento Life Coach

I have had 36 incredible experiences during the past 10 years.

This year – 2017 – should be your very best.  It’s time to get ahead.  In addition to recommending my new eBook, Smart Goals: Planning a Year of Cool and Easy SuccessI’m going to share my #1 Secret to claiming an amazing year.

Additionally, there are 3 non-optional questions you need to ask yourself to begin deciphering what is most important. These questions are asked toward the bottom of this post.

Before we get to that… First and foremost…

The single, most effective strategy for achieving all you want during the year, is to write it down.

Each year, I write down 10 things I want to experience.  No matter how crazy or outlandish they might sound, I guarantee it increases the chance of those experiences happening if I write them down.

Since 2007, one of my best friend’s and I began by creating dream notebooks rather and visualization boards.  While intimidated by the magnificence of the power we held over our own life, once the idea settled in, we embraced it and ran, starting with our 10 resolutions for the year.

Some of my goals have been small and others has stretched me further than I believed possible.

Here is a list of 36 incredible experiences I’ve had since beginning this tradition and what could be possible for you too:

You define your own life.

No one else.

If you have a dream no one else understands, pursue it anyway.

In getting clear about what you want this year, I invite you to take a little ‘soul’ time.  First thing when you wake up, grab some tea or coffee (warm drink of your preference) and take a quiet moment for yourself.  Contemplate what will make you come alive this year.  In this moment of silence and solitude, ask the following 3 questions.

Here are 3 non-optional questions to ask to get ahead in 2017:

  1. One year from now, where do you want to be?
  2. What needs to happen in order for you to be there?
  3. What can you do to get the ball rolling?

It’s your dream.

Here’s what I do not want to see:  One year from now, you are in the same place.  Wishing you were where you wanted to go, but sitting in the exact same place.

What would that feel like if you were in the same place, 5 years from now?

If you are in a blissful state – yes!  I love it.  If you don’t like where you are… it’s time to make a change.

We cannot let another year slip by.  The world cannot move forward without your piece of the puzzle.

Reach to get ahead in 2017.

Own it.  Protect it.  Preserve it.  Produce it.

If you need the help of a supportive community, you are invited to join the Smart Goals Society.  The entire purpose of the group is help you reach your goals as fast and safely as possible.

One Final Tip  before I go… Once you know what you want… Commit to it.  Commitment is power.  Whether you are committing to love, to reaching your full potential, to personal growth, to becoming better in any way, or finding fulfillment… what you are seeking… what you want… Commit.  You owe it to yourself.

I’m working on my list right now.

What’s on your list for this year? Please share in the comments below.

The Advice Column

Among the many themes readers requested during the past few weeks when I solicited for blog topics, there was one theme that was all-inclusive.

3 Realizations About Swimming Against the Current


First and foremost, thank you for your feedback.

Last week, I submitted an email requesting a response as to the content you enjoy reading.
The responses were wonderful, ranging from “how-to’s”, “Social media tips”, “The experience of going into motherhood” to “Shoot from the hip so no one knows what to expect,” and more  This is strongly appealing to my spontaneous nature.

I’ll be implementing a variety of all of those topics.

Today, I wanted to talk about swimming against the current.


1. There are certain areas of life you cannot force.

For example, inspiration or manufacturing creativity.  You cannot make someone love you.  Or in my case – you cannot tell a baby the exact date she is supposed to be born (unless it’s a scheduled C-section – which my case is not).

Sometimes the answer, isn’t to overwork it or overthink it.


2. Sometimes the answer is to, “float.”

Take a breather.  Why not?  It’s beautiful.

Think about where you are in life.  What are you facing in life today?


3. Be present.  

Just be here, today.

When we are fully present, we get to enjoy the magic of the moment.


I am 39 weeks pregnant right now.  This is the only time I’ll be in this moment.  These final, sacred moments are the hush before big changes.  Spending these final few evenings with my husband, calm and peaceful as one unit is a special time.

Spending all my time and energy agonizing about when the baby is coming and what childbirth will be life adds turmoil to the space.  We’ve done all we can to prepare.  We’ve done all we can to get ready.

The work is done.  Now, rather than forcing the experience to arrive before the time is right, it’s time to float.

The sweet, simple and beautiful life we had is going to take on an energy of it’s own.  Our daughter is being born.  This will be one of the most important people my husband and I have ever met.  She will be such an important piece of our life – of our future.

Although excitement is inevitable, taking a moment to honor this sacred time shouldn’t be overlooked.

Is there an area of your life that shouldn’t be overlooked?

What are you birthing in your life?

What can you enjoy before the energy shifts?

Remember that with the birth of something new, there will be mixed feelings – Nothing is all bliss.  Bliss requires work.  There is a new fulfillment of the heart, but also poop and a fatigued, mother’s body that will require nurturing and healing.

Be kind to yourself on your journey.
