Ramblings on What’s ahead for Me in 2014…

First, I must say that it’s amazing to look at your life through the eyes of God’s Grace… for the last 3 years or more, I have entered a new year with much anticipation and I have looked at the year that I have left behind, with a sense of calm & peace. Now don’t misunderstand, the previous 20+ years had been “Thank God I don’t have to do that again!”  But for the past few years, my only real challenges have been my son … and my finances (from my skewed perspective!).  See the Lord has always provided for us financially.  There’s always been a ram in the bush!  Our needs have been graciously met; we have always had shelter and food on the table … BUT, I would prefer not to live from paycheck to paycheck.  So I have asked God for an over-abundance (and not just financially) and He has asked me to wait until it’s my season!  I know that God wants me to trust Him with my whole heart.  Money, or the lack thereof, seems to always keep me a little unsettled, thus it continues to be my area of opportunity.  As far as my son goes, I have finally, finally turned him over to the Lord and now I am truly letting God handle it.  I am patiently waiting from my son’s deliverance and I refuse to interfere.

Now on to 2014… With each new year, I want to grow spiritually, walk in my purpose and always seek to get better and better at what I do.  2014 is no exception!  Order Your Steps continues to grow as more and more doors are opened. Many of those doors have been opened via ShelfGenie and for that, I am truly grateful.  However, there are four (4) major objectives that I would like to accomplish this year:

  1. Write an eBook entitled “It’s more about Order, than Organizing”.  I even have the dedication written.  I want to do a compilation of my best posts and put them into book form.  I would love to be able to offer some type of product(s) with my other professional organizing services.
  2. I would like to do more speaking engagements.  I have three (3) different “Order Out of Chaos” presentations prepared and I can customize them to suit the group that I am speaking to.  This may require a new marketing strategy, more networking, etc.
  3. I want to further my education by taking the certified professional organizing courses, which I wasn’t going to do initially.  However, now that I am going into my 3rd year of business, I believe that it would be an added benefit.
  4. Research the qualifications to become a certified Life Coach and begin to map out a path to add this skill to my business portfolio.

So I practice what I preach… I have identified and documented my 3-4 BIG objectives.  I believe that they all are realistic and achievable.  Now I must outline the specific actions needed, time-frames and deadlines to reach my goals.

As we journey toward our dreams, I have promised to keep an eye on you and I will keep you posted on my progress as well.

I am so excited!!

How about you?
