So,Â how’s the new year going so far?
In yesterday’s post I shared 3 Biblical Principals for Goal Setting. In today’s post I’m happy to curate the Best New Year’s Motivational Blog Posts for 2012.
I’ve never been a big “new years resolutions” guy, but I definitely believe in setting clear goals. By setting goalsÂ I’ve accomplished far more that I ever thought possible. I’ve built a dream recording studio,Â produced music for some of the biggest brands in America, traveled the world, earned a masters degree, finished a half-marathon.
I know that writing down goals, making a plan and taking action works.
Anyway, here’s a collection of inspiring articles by outstanding bloggers on this theme. Read them and have an awesome year.
An Opposing Point of View
How to Have the Best Year of Your Life (without Setting a Single Goal) This is a very intriguing angle by one of my favorite writers, Jeff Goins guest posting on Zen habits. Jeff makes a very good case for accomplishing more by creating new habits.
“Create good, sustainable habits that you enjoy, and youâ€™ll end up with a life you can be proud of.”Â
The Difference Between Dreaming and StartingÂ AnotherÂ inspiring, motivational article by Jeff that fits the new year theme.
Something Completely Different
Starting Over â€œA Manifesto On Being Yourselfâ€ by Michael Perkins. A very fresh perspective, complete with a quick and easy to read downloadable book. It’s completely handwritten, inspiring and a “must read”. He makes the case that in a noisy world , following formulas, parody and being anything other than “you” is a complete waste. Go get it now.
