2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 290 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Great Expectations

How many start their week with great expectations, only to have those expectations crumble as each day unfolds? This does not have to be the case for you. If you have a vision for you week, that’s great. Now, all you need is a plan to make it happen.


  • Write it down, if you’re look me your memory is pretty good but I nothing beats having a reference guide (electronic or old school note taking works just fine).
  • Be realistic, life happens and sometimes this will cause you to shift your actions.
  • Don’t get discouraged, a roadblock isn’t a sign that you should give it. It’s simply a reminder that you can do something a different way.
  • Celebrate each win, regardless of how you achieved your goals for the week, celebrate them!

Begin making a plan and following it consistently, it may take time but, you will begin to achieve all of your great expectations!




In preparation for my annual vision board party. I created a Vision Board Goals Template. it’s a simple worksheet to help you gather ideas in one place.


  1. Take some time to think about the past goals, accomplishments, and anything you want to achieve. Your time of reflection should be done in advance of you writing your 2015 goals.
  2. Use the worksheet as a tool, and don’t limit yourself. If you need additional space to write your vision, go for it.
  3. It’s important to remember that your vision can evolve so, don’t worry if you don’t capture everything during one setting. It’s ok to go back to your board later and add to it.
  4. Get a poster, a magazine, sissisors, glue sticks, and start cutting. When you start cutting images from magazines find the images that best relate to the goals that you’ve written down. (it’s good to have a variety of magazines).
  5. HAVE FUN (The bubbly will be flowing, at least it will be at my party)!
