Fresh Start : Using the Powersheets

1.8.2014 • 3 Comments

lara-casey-powersheetsIf you follow me on Instagram, you have already heard me mention Lara Casey‘s powersheets before! I started them last year right when I was finishing up a rough first trimester. I am normally a super goal-oriented and motivated person, but three months of feeling sick and tired, and I didn’t care if I accomplished one thing. I just wanted to make it through to the next day in one piece.

The powersheets really helped me to get focused! Even moreso now with Vivi, prioritizing my life and saying no to things that aren’t the most important things is so necessary for my sanity and accomplishing the things I want to accomplish!

We cannot do it all. We’ve got to be selective.


The powersheets are designed to help you make daily choices and action steps to reach your goals. I LOVE John C. Maxwell’s book Today Matters. (My notes here.) He says we “overexagerrate yesterday, underestimate today and overestimate tomorrow.” How true is this!! Today is the day y’all. If we aren’t using our todays. It just won’t happen.

Before you start your powersheets, read Lara’s series on goal setting! They go hand-in-hand. It’s a process to get to goal making. The goals I made are not all what I expected, but after asking myself real questions that Lara suggests, you get there.

Pair your powersheets with Catherine Guidry’s goal setting tips and you are off to a strong start!!

The stats on the benefits of reading are always so shocking to me! Tomorrow Nancy Ray will be sharing about how to become a reader! 

This post is a part of the FRESH START series. A three-week series to get you ready for 2014. Each week will have a different theme, mind, home and body.
