Last week, we talked about sorting through all your projects so you could set yourself up for success in 2018. Now, we’re in the second week of the year and I’m wondering…
If you did, that’s terrific and a great big CONGRATULATIONS! But, if you didn’t, that’s perfectly okay, too. I know this can be a pretty big undertaking, so, if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of sorting through ALL of your PIPs, why don’t you just take a deep breath and choose one project that has you stumped.
Great! Go ahead and set that project aside. We’ll come back to it again soon. As for all those other PIPs…
schedule some time every day to go through a few of them and, before you know it, you’ll be finished! (Happy Dance!)
Now, if you’ve finished “kon-mari-ing” your PIPs, then you may be wondering what’s next?!
This one ought to be pretty easy, and it’ll really help you decide what you want to tackle first, as you begin developing your needlepoint and knitting skills. Simply ask yourself the following question…
Be as specific as possible because that’s what will help you make your goals truly achievable. And we’re gonna make those goals S.M.A.R.T.E.R., so they help you become a more confident stitcher in 2018. (Not sure what S.M.A.R.T.E.R. goals are? No worries! We’ll talk about that next week.)
Oh – and if there’s more than one thing that drives you nuts or stresses you out, remember to rate each of them, too. For example, if something really, really frustrates you, put 5 stars beside it. If it’s only mildly annoying, give it one or two stars.
Be sure and visit me again here next week to learn more about making your goals S.M.A.R.T.E.R. – and remember to share what your #1 needlepoint or knitting frustration is in the comments box below. (Or, if you’d rather, you can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.) I’d really like to know so I can lend you a helping hand. 🙂
Until next time, happy stitching!
