Happy Friday!

It’s a much nicer day outside today. The humidity is starting to amp up again now, but when I went out this morning for bloodwork take 2, it was gorgeous and breezy, and all I could think of was how I wished there was somewhere to go and eat breakfast outside!

I used to love outside breakfasts when we had our summer cottage. Even in the past couple of years during covid when they let the restaurants downtown have picnic tables outside, it was nice to go downstairs and eat breakfast. But they stopped doing that this year, so there’s no patio downtown now that serves breakfast outside.

Anyways, that’s enough whining from me. I’ll just get more motivated to get my beach house so I have all the outside space I want for breakfast and even working outside!

And on that note, here’s what I have for you this morning…

Today’s Read: 5 Ways to Start Taking Action on Achieving Your Goals

If you stop and think about it, you probably have a laundry list of thing you’ve always meant to do. You might even have a list of goals you planned to complete, but somehow never quite got around to taking action on them. I know I can talk a good game, but if I’m honest with myself I probably talk about taking action a lot more than I actually do the things I plan on. But I’ve promised myself that at least for the rest of this year I will do a lot less talking about what I’m going to do, and a lot more of just buckling down to get things done.

Here are 5 ways to start taking action on achieving your goals:

Simplify your goals

You may have a dozen goals on your list, but you can’t realistically work on all of them at the same time. If you focus only on one to three goals at any one time you will have a much better chance at success. So prioritize your list and pick the three most important ones and start taking action on those first.
