Has what you hoped you do with your life been relegated to a beloved (or disappointing) daydream fantasy? A pot of gold at the end of a all too infrequent rainbow?

No matter what we tell ourselves or how sensible the reasons sound, there's no mistaking the feeling of an unfinished, unfulfilled desire. A life populated by our little and large disappointments is like sleeping on a lumpy mattress, you are tossing and turning all the time. What small steps - or large ones - could make a difference to you, and open up parts of your life to more ease and comfort - whether you are in the process of going for a big dream or not.

Oh yeah, and you don't need to fix yourself or be in a good mood to get started.

Shannon Bindler & Margalit Ward
L.A.'s original Get Up Girl Margalit Ward and I talk about how to stay on track with any type of goal, resolution or heart's desire. Margalit shared her six steps to busting procrastination and we sure had fun along the way.

Say goodbye to piled up bills and not getting to the gym!  (or, yunno, get back to me on that)

To get started ask:
  1. What am delaying?
  2. Why?
  3. What do I want to happen?
  4. What can I commit to cleaning up that's doable and by when?
  5. How will I hold myself accountable?
  6. How will I acknowledge myself when I've done it?
Margalit Ward and Shannon Bindler (both ICF certified coaches) are the dynamic founders and leaders of Get Up Girl, one of LA's most popular women's empowerment programs. Their network, community and coaching programs can be found on www.getupgirl.org.

Write me with the answers to your questions if you like - and let me know how it goes :)

Does it feel different to be looking forward to a year ahead rather than counting the days to the end?  There's a subtle shift, isn't there?  Whether you believe a new year is a total clean slate or just another day - it still seems like like change is afoot somehow.  

Or maybe that is just me!!

I spent New Year doing something I've never done before: December 31st I was alone on a reflective retreat. On the show I share with you what I did, what I packed and what I learned and how you can apply 5 principles of change to any change in your life.
  1. Close Out by choosing consciously and releasing
  2. Spend time in gratitude by making lists of what you appreciate and where you got it right
  3. Forgive and ReleaseNo matter how hard you try, it is impossible to be grateful and depressed - Robert Holden from his perpetual calendar
  4. Open to the New.  Don't just reset your system, get the upgrade.
  5. Visioning & Goalsetting.  Do it so it works, don't just create another TO DO list.  (To avoid the 'goals-of-death' you can always contact me for some coaching).
The Eight things I took with me that I mention in the show are all listed with the links included in my blog post The Old, the New and the Unknown
