Making Plans

I’ve heard it said that a goal is a dream with a deadline. That deadline involves making plans.

In the past, I’ve made plans, but I’ve only halfway followed them.

That is changing.

A few weeks ago, I heard about this thing called a planathon. It’s actually a Facebook group/virtual conference. And it is amazing! Check out The Planathon for more information. It’s hosted by Amber McCue and she does a fabulous job!

Have you ever been in the middle of something and realized it has the potential to be life-changing? Yeah. That. It’s kind of heady.

There’s one day left of it and then a workshop on Tuesday to wrap it up. It’s intense! I’m making plans. I’m already implementing some of them. And I’m excited about what’s coming next. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

By the way, if you’ve looked at the information about 40 Days of Creativity, you’ve already seen one part of the plans implemented.

Sometimes plans change and drive us nuts. Other times, they change and we know it will be so much for the better.

This is one of those times. The better one, that is. Though I have no doubt it will drive me nuts sometimes, too. (That’s easy to do when you’re already more than halfway there.)

A few weeks ago, I had applied for a job I really wanted. Then I went to Eureka Springs for two weeks. I thought I’d get the call for an interview while I was gone. Instead, the call came two days after I got back.

I went to the interview and it went great. To fast forward a little bit, I didn’t get the full-time job I wanted. Instead, I got offered a long-term contract position.

That will actually work out for the better. And it will also allow me to pursue other ideas and personal projects I thought of while I was in Eureka Springs.

Yes, plans changed, but so much for the better. I’m excited about the possibilities. I’ll keep you posted on how this all goes.
