Have you ever set a New Year’s Resolution or goal — only for your excitement to fizzle out a few weeks later?

You’re not alone. A study by the Journal of Clinical Psychology shows that most people make the same resolution 10 times without success. Ten times.

This doesn’t have to be you. Whether you want to write a book, start a business, strengthen your body, or upgrade your health — your dreams deserve to see the light of day.

Success doesn't come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently. Click To Tweet

On today’s MarieTV, you’ll learn three science-backed strategies that will help you make that happen.

These habits are simple and easy to implement. More importantly, they will radically increase your odds of achieving any goal.

If you have big dreams, this episode is a must-watch. These three habits will keep you focused and consistent — all year long.

Here’s a quick recap of everything you just learned. 

Scroll all the way down to enter a special LIMITED TIME giveaway!

Strategy #1: Write Down Your Goal — Every. Day. 

You’ve probably heard this advice a million times, but hardly anyone actually does it! Dr. Gail Matthews, a professor of psychology at Dominican University discovered that people who write down their goals are 42% more likely to achieve them. 

Here’s why it works. Writing down your top goals every day means you’ll look at them every day. It’s a constant, powerful reminder of where to put your focus.

Personally, I write my #1 goal at least 15 times every morning. In fact, I did that when I was writing Everything is Figureoutable. I wrote, “I am a #1 NY Times Bestseller” 15 times per day, every day for at least 18 months. Obviously, I worked my tail off for far longer and did many things to support the book, but that goal did happen.  

If you’re truly serious about achieving your goals this year, write them down. Daily.

Strategy # 2. Schedule Where & When You’ll Take Action 

For years I’ve told my B-Schoolers, “If it’s not scheduled, it’s not real.” And there’s science to back it up: 

Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson, a social psychologist who studies goal setting and motivation found that “deciding in advance when and where you’ll take specific actions to reach your goal can double or triple your chances for success.” 

Translation: You’re 2-3X more likely to achieve your goal if you schedule in your calendar when and where you’ll take action on your goals. 

This habit only takes 4 minutes and will make you massively more productive in any area of your life. If you want to dial up your chances even more, make a contingency plan too. Plan ahead for problems or setbacks that could throw you off your game. When they pop up, you’ll be glad you solved them in advance. 

Strategy #3. Set An Appointment To Update A Friend 

Your environment also has enormous influence over the way you think, feel, and behave. Over time, your environment — and the people in it— can make or break your success.

According to The American Society of Training and Development, you have a 65% greater chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. Even better, making a specific “accountability appointment” with another person can increase your chances of success by up to 95%. 

That’s a lot. 

It doesn’t have to be complicated, either. For example, set a weekly standing appointment where you and a friend agree to text an update about your goals at 5pm. It’s so simple and yet you just made it 95% more likely that you’ll achieve your goals.

    I’m going to start by writing my goals down today

    • Denisa Sabou

      This is not a New Year Resolution, but I decided last year that I will finish my bachelor thesis. Before the end of the year I was pretty sad that I won’t be able to finish it on time( I had 25 pages left) , due to the deadline which is on mid January. But 2 weeks ago, I got motivated, wrote it down and started to put much more effort, so now I am on the right track.
      So I made that conscious decision and I worked every day on it since the end of the year (today I wrote 4 pages, feeling proud👏).
      I am planning to write around 4 pages tomorrow too, and after I’ll finish, I’ll reply to my comment. This is a great idea Marie! Even if I will win, or not, this is going to help me to stay on track. 😉 Thank youuu!

      • My goal is to help people change the way they currently view their bodies and achieve life lasting wellness. First step, putting more time into my passion job, and out of my corporate job.

        • Nicole Slegers

          Done. @coliegaga on Insta

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        That’s amazing, Denisa! Way to take serious action. We’re cheering you on as you finish that thesis!

        • Denisa Sabou

          Thank you Julia. I am enjoying this challenge:)

          • Debra

            My goals start now with the right mindset.

      • Denisa Sabou

        Done! For today:)

      • Toni Natoli

        Denisa, consider me inspired! Thank you for your example.

      • Denisa, that’s so exciting! Way to get back on the horse and make an investment in YOU!

        My biggest goal this year is to settle into a home with my sweetie. We’re getting married in July, and house hunting at the same time! It means paying off debt and increasing business revenue so that we’re not strung out on a 30-year mortgage or going into debt for the wedding. The very next step is completing an intake form for the new copywriter I’m hiring to help upgrade my sales and marketing messaging.

      • You can totally do this Denisa! Especially that you are breaking it down into small chunks of time and effort. It will be so worth it!!! You’ve got this!!!

      • I have always enjoyed writing…every since High School. I’ve written poems, a play, and conducted some interviews that were turned into articles for a local magazine that was in my city. I also do a lot of writing on my facebook business page. I also have coordinated 2 talent/variety shows, a dinner and play event, and a Mental Healt h and self care event. I enjoy bringing ppl together. Through writing, I hope to connect to single mothers, women who want to release stress, women who would like to turn their experiences into something meaningful through writing, and more.

      • Congrats Denisa, you got in before the deadline, sending you all the best & joy while you complete this work/phase in your life!

        Thanks Marie, for this New Jersey no bs b-school 🙌🏾

    Break down and demolish every damn barrier and fear around loving unconditionally – in every sense of the word.

    • Michelle

      Not only did I schedule my day so time was allotted for all that needed to get done, but I also helped a friend go through her goals and shared this method with her!

  14. I am scheduling and facilitating, through 2020, 8 one-day self hypnosis workshops and 8- 2 1/2 day hypnosis certification workshops. I am excited to teach women how they can use hypnosis to help them achieve their goals!

  16. Create a content calendar to keep me consistent in posts for my business (i.e. blog posts, social media, newsletters). Setting each day to complete a specific task so I take less time figuring out what I need to do and just do it!

    • DONE!!! 🙂

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Amazing Heather!! You’re going to ROCK this year! 👏🏻

  17. Alycia

This includes exercise indoors(my home and at gym) and outdoors(getting out in nature!) as well as how many ounces of water I will drink each day, my journaling. (adding the 15 times rule to it now. Thanks for that Marie) and meal planning each weekend. I have downloaded a fabulous app to help me with the planning and the shopping. #2020goals are on point!
    PS…found the wonderful habit tracker on bunnymetsunny.com if anyone needs free downloads for organizing beyond the great on already offered by Marie.(I am in no way affiliated, just sharing in case it is helpful.) Happy New Year! So excited for your success. (oh and my website is under construction…a professional goal. Working with my B School info. today to get that done too!)

  25. Dear Marie Forleo and your amazing team.

    I have follow you for really long long time and you are teaching many lessons that I can apply to my life which also help others life become better as they told me that.
    Thank to your inspriration, I have create my website where I note all the lessons that I have learned from your video in Vietnamese.

    Or my decade in review video ( @MarieForleo #MFDecadeInReview) that I also make base on your video.

    I am really hope that I can get your signed book and cute bottle, notebook and stickers from you. This will be the best gift ever that I have chance to get.
    My goals is become no missing blogger as Seth Godin teach us, he never miss any blog post.
    WHERE: At my house
    WHEN: Everyday before 9 am

  26. My goal for 2020 was to start my 1st bullet journal to take charge of my schedule and productivity rhythm (I work full-time and most planners cater towards weekday productivity but I primarily have Sat / Sun to get my major goals accomplished for myself).

    With putting my goals / bullet off during the month of Dec., I scheduled a time to go to my local library, committed to setting the journal up and identifying my intensions for the following week. And you know what?

    I DID IT! And I found that by changing my environment from my apartment to a public space, I was WAY more productive. Being at the library and giving myself structure to not check my phone / relax allowed me to create the space I needed to take action.

    Thanks Marie for all your insight! I’ve been watching you since 2012 and you have helped me grow so much over the years. Thank you for you and your team in everything you guys do!

    • **
      1. Comment below and tell me where and when you’ll take that first action step.
      DONE!!! See Above ^^
      2. GET TO IT! Then reply to your comment with the words “Done!” or “I did it!”
      DONE!!! Bullet journal forces me to write everything down which is so much more effective than using my phone. I find I am more intentionally and thoughtful with my inputs.
      3. Like this IG post & tag at least two friends and help them reach their goals.
      DONE!!!!!!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        GO Cassandra!! We love that you’re changing up your environment and habits this year to stay motivated and on track. Sounds like you’re off to an amazing start – we’re so pumped for you and all that 2020 holds!

    A doctor appointment this week revealed that I developed 2 new inflammatory conditions. I’m putting (me and) my health first, for once. I will wake up every morning at 4am and exercise for 50 minutes in my living room, starting tomorrow!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      This is a wonderful goal to take good care of you and your health, Kristine. It really is the most important thing and we love that you’re making it a priority. We’re cheering you on, and wishing you such a happy, healthy 2020. You can do this!

  44. Yazhini

    Start reading a new book every week.

    • Yazhini

      I did it!
      P.S. it’s funny because only yesterday I was watching Sunny Lenarduzzi and Marie video call on YouTube and signed up for the B-school wait list. And I saw this today. Cool!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        We love that synchronicity, Yazhini! So happy to be connected with you and excited for you to do all the reading this year!

  45. I became a new mom a year ago and I honestly feel like every single goal I had prior to having my baby has basically evaporated. I think, feel and even act different. It’s been very confusing & nerve racking trying to understand who I am now. It’s actually painful in a way but I now feel the need to allow this transformation to bloom. But I need to write down my feelings, my thoughts and start figuring out how I want this new mama to live life. So my goal is to write all of this down and start tomorrow with a new willingness to begin living my life as I want to. xoxo

    • I’m doing this, here in my bedroom while baby sleeps. Right.Now.

      • I had to finish while breastfeeding lol but I did it! It’s done. Thank you for this little exercise Marie❣️

        • ♥️ I 100% understand, mama.

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          So proud of you, Yunuen! This is such a huge transformation to go through, so keep being gentle with yourself in the process. Journaling is such a powerful way to tune into that wisdom within. We love that you’re embracing the transformation while staying deeply connected with yourself. Beautiful! XO

    • One of my top goals of 2020 is to get my plantain flour baking mix distributed on Amazon. My first action step is to write, “Mama Emma’s Waffle & Pancake Mix is sold on Amazon” 15x per day in my journal starting now! Thank you for bringing this nugget o’ wisdom back into my life, Marie! 🙌🏽

      • Aaaaand DONE! (man, I forgot how much wrist strength that takes ✍️ all worth it in the end! #nopainnogain)

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          Amazing job, Emmanuela! We’re SO excited for you to get this goodness out into the world! 🙌🏻

  46. One of the important goals I have is to double my freelance income, especially now that I don’t have my cubicle job. I was thrown into freelance full time due to the company closing down after announcing bankruptcy. I had amazing friends supporting me and telling me to get going by doing design work more and more. I’m going to show up on social media more, share my talent, share my work. I want to have financial freedom that comes with the flexible schedule of freelancing. I’ll write out the schedule for every day, schedule in hours to improve my skills, and create content to share as well.

  47. Taylor

    I’m going to write down my goals and then write them daily. I’m also going to put in my 2 weeks notice at work on 1/31/20. I’m going to step out on faith and launch the projects I have been working on for years. I was afraid to fail but now I have let go of that fear.

    • Kate - Team Forleo

      We believe in you, Taylor! Keep taking action and writing down your goals. We’d love to hear how things are going so please keep us posted — we’ll be cheering you on 🙌

  48. I will write my #1 goal today on my notebook on the Uber going home 15 times! And I did it!

  49. Michelle

    Schedule work time every day for my side gig so it can be my full time gig when I retire in <4 years!

  50. Christi

    I’m going to get active for at least 30 minutes a day. I’ll take a 30 minute walk outside or do a workout in my living room.

    • Christi

      Done!! I walked my dog today after work! Feels good to get outside.

      • Kate - Team Forleo

        Great job, Christi! There’s nothing like fresh air and movement to get you feeling good 😊

  51. Tonight, January 6th 2020

    ✨I will start by writing on paper the 3 big projects my small business (Cocina del Corazón) has to accomplish in the next 2 months.
    I will break down each project in smaller and more manageable tasks and will attach a deadline to each task.
    I will reach out to a friend and fellow business owner and explain my timeline and deadlines. This will keep me more accountable.✨

    • ✨Working on de-constructing the goals I want to achieve, while implementing in writing the habits and actions I need to take! ✨

      *all while listening to Sade*

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Beautiful, Jazmin! It sounds like you’re off to a fantastic start. And we love the addition of Sade! ✨

  52. LeeAnn

    I am going to take back my health and well-being. I haven’t taken care of myself since losing my son and now I feel like I’m at a turning point and need to take action. I am going to schedule an appointment with a physiatrist to help guide me because I’m feeling very lost and overwhelmed! And I’m going to schedule time to do this during my breaks at work, so no excuses of being too tired when I get home. Thank you for the great tips!

    • Dawnna Hetherington

      ((((💖)))) You got this ((((💖))))

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      We’re sending you SO much love and encouragement, Leeann – you can do this! This sounds like the perfect, totally doable first step. Please keep us posted! I also have a feeling you may find this episode helpful: https://www.marieforleo.com/2013/05/feeling-lost/. 😘

    • LeeAnn

      First step taken! Appointments scheduled!

  53. I will do my power hour tomorrow January 7th in my home office of my 4 income producing activities.

  54. Heather

    I am going to stop undermining myself and my goals. I’m tired of allowing the imposter syndrome to take over my brain space. I am going to start changing this pattern of unhelpful thinking by writing in a journal 5 things that I did well each day…starting tonight.

  55. Hi Marie and Team! 💕 Happy New Year!
    I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since 2019 B School and I’m ready for round 2. So here’s my T on what I’ve been working on and why it’s so important.
    I’m a voice coach in North Carolina (originally from Miami) and run a full time voice studio both in studio and online helping singers, podcasters, speakers, mentors, voice over actors and pretty much all things vocal. I absolutely love what I do and very fortunate and grateful to do it. I love working with so many beautiful people looking to enrich their voice and the way they wish to present there passions. I have the opportunity to work with each voice from the inside out where many times the brain will have thoughts that may try to get in the way of opening ones voice to its fullest. It’s amazing how old messages hold back the voice and we don’t even realize it. This is why the work I do is so meaningful and healing. The transformations I get to witness are amazing to say the least, and having the gift in helping empower voices is beyond anything I could have imagined. Now here’s the why…the healing that occurs in each session goes deeper than just the sound of our voice. It’s a catalyst in transforming lives and breaking through old ideas and perceptions. To help others work through the fears around their voice, which is super personal to pretty much everyone. It builds trust and opens one up to an honesty and a self love that translate into confidence to speak up in ones life on all levels. Whether in business, families and relationships, creativity and passions. To help make an impact in the world one voice at a time is and has been my biggest desire. I know what it’s like to have my voice stifled. I know what it’s like to feel like I’m doomed to be a victim. Working with voice has opened up an accountability process, an honesty, a truth, and the action taker in me personally. To share the tools, methods, and techniques with others and watch them flourish is a never ending remedy to spread the love. I’m super thrilled to roll through B School again soon and always more than grateful for Marie and all your hard work as a team to pull it all together. I can’t wait for the 2020 vision. 💕
    All my love 💕 nyla

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      You’re doing SUCH beautiful and important work in the world, Nyla! We couldn’t be more proud to have you as a B-Schooler. Here’s to all of us finding our truest voice in 2020 and beyond! We can’t wait to see all you’ll continue to create. XOXO 💕

  56. Jenny

    I’m going to start my Pilates teaching career and inspire others to be their best!

  57. Sandra Perez

    I downloaded & printed the simple calendar tool. So that’s where I’ll write down my goals monthly and track my progress daily. There’s a few items like books I’m reading & 5am wake up for 30 min @home workouts fro home before getting ready for work.

    • Sandra Perez

      I’ did it! Revisiting my goal sheet daily and reading. But to be brutally honest the 5am wake up call isn’t working out. Perhaps I revisit the plan of a few days per week instead of trying every day and failing. I got this!

  58. I’m going to schedule my workout for tomorrow in my planner at my kitchen table. My intent is to love me right and it starts with loving care of my body, you know what I’m saying 😉 like right now…

    • Andrea

      My most important goal, is to enhance my spiritual health. I have written this goal in my success planner, and I have been reading steps to personal revival by Helmut Haubeil every morning since January 1st, 2020. I feel optimistic, energetic and have even started to declutter my home. And yesterday when I had to take a financial loss and let go a contractor who was doing the reno on one of my rental properties, I didn’t beat myself up and ruminate over it like I would in the past. Instead I was able to exercise a positive mindset and express the gratitude of the lessons learned, and I’ll just soldier on!

      • Andrea

        I did it, and I’m doing it!

        • Julia - Team Forleo

          Amazing, Andrea – you’re absolutely doing it! 💖 Wishing you such a beautiful year of growth and health ahead.

  59. Maria Flores

    I started writing my 5 major 2020 goals this morning in our living room. I decided too that writing is part of it, that I will be doing it again everyday, listing my goal until my subconscious store it and help me take action. I’ve done this few years ago and I did get some of those goals. It works! Now that exercising is one of my goals this 2020 on a consistent basis, my action is to do it in our living room around 8 in the morning.

  60. Maria Flores

    Done!

    Our 3 top goals for 2020 are:
    1. take the new baby: Proactivvity through B-school and do every single task diligently – I’m already in! ✅
    2. as Proactivvity founder maintain a consistent meditation 🧘‍♀️ exercise/yoga and journaling practice every day of 2020 to stay healthy, concentrate on my goals, and be grateful. This morning ✅

    It took some time and struggle to understand that I was never going to be 100% ready,
    that I was the sole good fairy 🧚🏻‍♀️ of my life and so I got to decide about my future self by choosing to act or to keep on ruminating over my imperfections. But here I am in 2020: good enough!
    I have all that it takes to act and the rest is … FIGUREOUTABLE.
    Proactivvity is a huge fan of MF!
    We love 💕 you Marie for your positivity! It’s contagious. We also value tremendously you talking about the hard work that has to be put up. 🙏👏👏🌟🤗💚✅

    I also run an award-winning boutique Bed and Breakfast called “The Empty Nest”. I need to double my income this season in order to stay in my home.
    I was never an entrepreneur. I was a stay-at-home Mom until my husband of 27 years decided he didn’t want to be married to me anymore.
    It was your comment “The world needs…” that put me into action.
    Please…I want your book, the Journal, and those adorable stickers. Pick me, Pick me!

  100. Melanie Timmins

    Hey Marie, today is the day for me to put these steps into action for my NY resos! Journal at the ready here and ….. here we go!!

  101. Yay! I’m writing down my goals every single day! And I’m going to figure out what they are too 🙂

  102. Liesl

    My goal this year is to :-
    Every day write 3 goals for the next day that are focused on making me healthy, happier or wealthier , not the little things I will already do.
    Every day review 3 goals and feel great for achieving them
    Every day journal for a little bit, this should be feeling focused so that I start to identify, acknowledge and dig a bit deeper with my feelings and responses
    Every day meditate and exercise even if only for a few minutes each.

    I have completed this for 2 days in a row. The way I am journaling is new and more specific than previously and more regular and I like it.

    Exercising and meditating were semi regular but it feels achievable to just say a few minutes EVERY day. Yay 😃. I feel more like my best self when I do this.

    • Liesl

      I will do this in my journal, in bed before bedtime.
      Done ✅

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Yes, Liesl! Those small, consistent, everyday actions are HUGE. We love this – great work on getting specific!

  103. To aim is to bring my business back to a successful place – after a big burnout – without compromising myself and my energy ever again.
    Create more beautiful art work and inspiring more people globally, especially in the US and Asia – so in being brave again the goal is to make connections and make myself proud.

    *Message 1-3 people a day from my home studio and remind them about my work and start getting those conversations going!

    Thank You Marie,
    I’m still enjoying working from your book and loved the 5 day workshop
    Still writing every morning too!

  104. I’m going to write down my goals today at my desk.

  105. My big goal for the year is to streamline my Craft Business. We have started by re-doing my craft room so it is less of a junk room and will be a much nicer place to go and work when health permits. At the same time, I am trying hard to reduce the number of Crafts I can make, currently, I’m very eclectic but this means that I am constantly being tempted to make new things, so from here on in they have to tie in with the themes/styles I have outlined to be my Spratt’s Designs style. Then I plan to utilise this focus to increase my sales by using this ‘style’ to convey to new and my existing customers. So the key to this goal, and writing everything down will boost this is to check everything I do from making to advertising to packing, everything fits in with that streamline goal and style theme. I have already started and can say done to bits, but I will need to keep writing this goal daily as long as I run my business as I will need to account everything I do to (figuring it out) meeting it xx Saz

  106. Katiefro

    My goal is to run a 10K once a week! I have them scheduled into my calendar to run on each Saturday morning. I have written the goal down in my journal with a spot for me to check off each week as I go!

  107. Hi MF team and watchers-readers-listeners- lifeactors!
    I decided at the end of last year through a divine push that I needed to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to my main art practice which is charcoal drawing, to allow myself to connect deeply with it and to recreate my career on another level of engagement for myself and others.
    1) Make the work
    2) Diffuse it and connect with people to inspire them to action and/or a deeper relationship with themselves.
    3) Exhibit and sell to provide for my family.
    4) Trust that in taking one step towards the gods they will take ten towards me.

    • Done the 4 steps and had some results in each category immediately!

      The challenge is to stay focused and connected with the divine push that inspired me to begin again and to take action every day without the pressure that provoked me to take a long break….

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Amazing job, Linet! We love that you’re staying connected to your divine purpose in making and sharing your art with the world. Keep being kind and gentle with yourself ❤️ The world needs your beautiful gifts!

  122. Hi Marie and team,
    I already have the book, read it and am doing the book with my husband. So an extra copy is always nice (we go “where did you leave the Forleo?) And I love the journal and bottle!
    My #1 goal is to sell 60.000 euro’s worth of products and coaching in my business this year. Pretty steep, but inspiring. My first step I actually scheduled in for today: write a free mini course optin. So I’ll be back when I’m done!
    Much love and huge thanks for all the inspiration and motivation!

    Monique

    • Julia - Team Forleo

  124. Vicki

    Thanks so much Marie! My goal is to finally get slim and healthy. I will start writing that down every day. I already have in place an arrangement with a friend for mutual accountability.

    • Mary

  126. Asipita

    One of my goals this year is to get a distinction in my MBA thesis. I’ve started by writing it down! 🙂
    I’ll take action by working on it twice a day for three hours in total, one hour in the morning before lunchtime and two hours in the evening between 9 and 11pm.
    Go, go go!!
    Thanks Marie.

    • Asipita

      So, after finishing a full working day; laying my one year old down to sleep for the night and; feeling a bit exhausted from another long day: I sat down, studied and wrote a bit for another chapter.

      There have frankly been moments when my approach to tackling this was not working and I am sometimes still plagued by doubts. Nevertheless, I continue to:
      – Say it out Loud: “Everything is figureoutable”
      – Take a breath and touch my heart
      – Assign an empowering meaning
      – Reinforce
      – Take the next best action!

      DONE!! 🙂
      Everything really is figureoutable and a little progress helps.

      The possibility of getting a signed copy of ‘Everything is Figureoutable’ and a journal to match is bringing a smile to my face and a warmth to my body. Here’s to being hopeful!

      Two friends tagged as well, yay!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Yes Asipita! We’re so happy you’re using those steps to move through any doubts and keep making progress towards your goal. You’re doing AMAZING – keep going!

  127. I wrote down my 8 top goals for the year, dissected them and felt really accomplished. However, I haven’t looked at them since and it’s been 5 days!! Right now, I am going to go write them down again, stick them on my bathroom mirror so I can see them everyday and get serious! One of my top goals is to raise $20,000 for my non-profit that just got approved for tax exemption to bring holistic practices to people suffering from substance abuse disorder. This is serious business, Marie! No more days without looking at this goal and the 7 others. Thank you for the kick in the butt, it came exactly when I needed it! 🙂

    • Done and done! 💪🙏✨

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        So glad this came at the perfect time for you, Sydney 🙂 You’re incredible. What an amazing, important initiative. We’ll be cheering you on big time over here as you bring this to life!

  128. I will create content and blog daily to sell my room starter design packages online to help the many people who don’t know where to start when putting their space together. I plan to take action every day consistently to move the needle forward. xo Nicole

  129. GOAL – Finish setting up and actually LAUNCHING my newly-revised website, with my very first blog I’ve been making up excuses to get out into the world for yeeeeeaaaaarrrrrrs! Yikes.

    WHEN – I’ll be working on this puppy starting at 8a-4p every day this week, while working my other at-home (temporary) job.

    WHERE – In front of my brand new mac I purchased specifically for this reason.

    Marie, I read and highlighted the ____ out of the hardcopy version of your book I preordered, then flew all the way to London from the US and got another version which I gave to my momma, and now seeking another copy with those extra goodies to share with my sister. Your energy is magic and pure empowerment.

    P.S. Although just getting it out into the world, I’ll be teaching all about magic. One of the ‘tricks’ with magic is even though you’re scared out of your mind to push forward with a goal, you can change the game by simply saying aloud, ‘In myself I believe, so I shall achieve.’

    Love, Tabitha

  130. Yentl

    HEYYY… Right now 6:45 AM in my Living Room. Allentown, PA 🙂 YAY

In 2019 I took a workshop to be a Body Mechanic Instructor for Massage Therapists and I have been lame and not thinking I am good enough yet but you and your philosophy have helped me immensely to break out of my shell. So all my top 8 Goals revolve around that project. I just bought your book in Amazon too lol, but I would love a signed copy for myself and give the one I currently have to someone I know who needs it. An awesome person from work who would rock this book. Thank you so much!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

  137. My big goal in 2020 is to grow my business and actualy get paid for helping people regain their mental health using equine facilitated therapy.
    Today I´m gonna sit down at my office and write 3 motivated applications in order to apply for financial means to grow my business.

  138. Hi Marie,
    Thank you for your words. I’m so grateful that I opened your email. I have been a professional procrastinator my whole life and I am making this year the year I become someone new, although I’ve been in the making for the past 10 months as I’ve traveled around the world. I have never believed in making Resolutions for the new year, just the best changes that I possibly can. This year I’m living these changes.
    My dad died about a year and a half ago after a turbulent and rapid bout with cancer. This has been the some of the most difficult few years of my life, and I’ve put myself through some terror in my adolescence. My dad had dreams and talent that he never put into action and reality, which I believe to be part of his karmic cycles. He was such a gifted musician, but never recorded, because he believed in his sister more than himself.
    This year, I will be starting my own business(es) hosting Kundalini Yoga and Adventure retreats, getting my unique meditation and yoga mats into production, and fulfilling my goal of only working for myself and the people that I’ll serve from here on.
    This month I will launch AudazLife.com
    Audaz is a Spanish word that means Courageous or Bold, a person who takes action without dwelling on the risks of their action. With Audaz, we will practice the gift of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, while learning to give in to the what scares is, and finding the adventure around us and within. Stepping and living beyond our comfort zones is exactly where we can grow. This is what I intend to share with the world and all who will apply, with a higher conciousness vibe in mind. My goal is to share the message with good for all concerned.
    The message that my father did give me in his lifetime, was to always stay positive, no matter what. With that in mind, I know that with the steps of action that I take each and every day I will grow and flourish in this month, this year, this life. I know that I can and will share my message of love and bravery, a message of truth.
    Please look out for http://www.AudazLife.com coming in hot in 2020 and join me as we explore our relationship with ourselves, the world, and beyond.
    Much love and big hugs,
    GuruRattan Kaur

    • I did it! 😍

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        This is so beautiful, GuruRattan! Thank you for sharing your story with us here. It’s clear that you’re carrying on your father’s legacy in such a special way with your own gifts and we’re so excited for you as you launch your incredible business out into the world this year!

  139. My dream is to spread the wonders of LEARNING in people’s lives. I am going to start on January 16th in a retreat on the countryside here in Brazil (Fazenda da Furquilha) Since I have to comment “Done” on the post, here is another goal: c0mplete my gratitude list, now, in my room… BRB

  140. Alex

    I just got a new planner and scheduling my writing is the first thing going in there!

    • Alex

      Just did it – 3:30 PM, in the dining room. But I don’t have instagram 🙁 that’s okay, I’ll win by achieving my goals ;)!

  141. Christina Bates

    • Christina Bates

      Done

  142. Nyree

    I would love to set goals though following a tough year – racial, sexist, bullying, Rejection from new job applications because I don’t have a degree, learning a new language in the country I am living in and feel complete isolation. I am now suffering from severe depression all thanks to my work place. I am a one parent family support uni children so I need to work.
    I am lost and for the goals I just cannot set. I am generally – honest Governor have a happy and positive disposition. 46 yrs old and just feel where does one go…
    I wish to achieve yet it is that vicious circle….

  143. My first Action step is to continue creating the habit shifting free course so people can ditch their bad habits and addictions and live their best life.

    • Janet Miller

      I’m writing my goal down daily. Scheduling in exercise and daily gratitude, meal prepping twice a week, seeing people who lift me up, planning and organizing all things related to health so it remains a priority and checking in daily with my husband.

  145. Rosemarie Sugatan

    I love being able to get the chance to win Marie stuff! Plus, my name is Rosemarie (nickname is Marie) so I’m doubly excited!
    I’ve been a voice over artist for 15 years in Manila, Philippines, and I earn good money, enough to keep our family fed and clothed and our children in school. But I want to take my voice over business to the next level and earn more for my family. (Who doesn’t?) I don’t want to have to worry about the future anymore. I don’t want to feel like a fool again buying a domain name and not knowing the first thing on how to build my website, and just give up. I’ve done it a few times, and it’s both embarrassing and humbling.
    This time, it will be different.
    My goal is to grow my voice over business and propel it forward. Where am I going to do this? I will start here at home, because here I have my little studio with some recording equipment. When will I do this? Now. After watching this episode of Marie’s videos. Starting today, I will write down my goal, every single day; plan where and when I will act on it; and be accountable to someone (most likely my husband!).
    I’ve also signed up for B-School after being hesitant about it for several years. I kept saying I couldn’t afford it, it may not be for me, etc., etc. But I feel different about it now. I AM going to B-School in February!
    I’m nervous and delighted at the same time. This will be my year!

    • Rosemarie Sugatan

      Done!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        Rosemarie! We’re SO excited for you that you’re taking your goal to the next level of commitment and follow-through this year. It would be our honor to support you in growing your voice over business through B-School. That nervous excitement is such a good sign! We can’t wait to connect with you in the program soon ☺️

        • Rosemarie Sugatan

          Thank you, Julia, and the rest of your team, and of course, Marie! Psyched!

  146. My goal for this year is to release 25 books. I will release my first book on January 13th.

    • DONE. Judging Ginger is up for PreSale at Amazon. Book one will release officially on January 13th.

  147. Moving to a new home, before the 10th, perfect environment to write my second book and start my online biz.

  152. My biggest goal this year is to take control of my business finances so that I can finally have a highly profitable business. The first step is meeting with an accountant to understand and make a plan!

  157. Dolores

    My goal this year is to start a (or multiple) side hustles that will surpass my current income so that I don’t have to work for a ego maniac manager in a world full of men who have ZERO respect for women. I will make a list of everything I am good at that I can profit from by noon today.

  158. Kylee

    After overcoming a long illness and having my life changed I find I’m no longer in a position to do the job I used to do. With 4 children, a mountain of debt from the last 5 years I NEED to work. So, I’ve decided to find my passion. To retrain to do a job in line with what I feel my purpose is. I want to use what I have been through/going through to help others in a similar situation to myself. Using techniques, tools and support that benefited me as a mindfulness and wellness coach.
    Marie you have inspired me so much and are constantly helping me to keep my focus. Thank you 🙏 xxx

    My goal for the year, professionally speaking, is to achieve a certain promotion by May 25th, 2020. I will work from home from 8:15-10:45 on that goal daily while my kiddos are in pre-K.

    Hi Marie and Team!
    First of all, happy New Year!!! \o/
    I intend to begin my journey on the writers’ path this year finally!!! =,) After a decade of not being sure, doubting myself, hesitating, and so on (you know the song…) I’m so excited about it! =D
    So I will begin with the very first volume and from now on each year will see the next volume coming to life! =)
    I have already begun this journey as I’m currently working on looking for historic ressources, gathering every notes I’ve collected for many years (God! How many are ya???) and most of all working on the plan and the planning side of this huge project! Because nothing is more important than a good preparation to tame such a beast! =D
    See ya when the planning and the story plan are done!
    Thank you for having read me! ^^
    Take care.
    Amanda

  164. Sabrina

    I’m going to design a workshop program that infuses coaching and design thinking methodology. I will work on this every second Saturday until March.

  165. I am a freelance designer, and my biggest goal this year is to grow my business by getting more clients and improving my portfolio, offering more kinds of illustration work. (I’m currently working almost exclusively with textile design, but want to find clients in editorial illustration, for example).
    So, first action, that I’ve already started and I plan to get done today, is to plan every action I need to do this year to achieve that goal, and schedule when to do each one. Also, starting to make contacts and reaching for possible new clients.

  166. Hanna

    I am going to find a weekly accountability partner.

  167. Sarah B.

    I went through Jan and scheduled gym visits. Goal is to do something active but even a hot tub soak or steam room visit keeps me in the habit of going.

  168. Susan

    Meet my friend at 5:15 on Tuesday and Thursday for spin class. This will help with my goal of being fit and healthy. I did it!

  169. I will contact a perfect accountability buddy and organize a regular strategy and accountability meeting to stay focused and on target.

  170. I’ll start by writing my goals 15 times in my notebook right now!

  171. Officially launch my Finding Home Business. More than just a source for home searches, it will also provide education, design/decor trends, and highlight local businesses and community leaders. I will start this morning by committing to writing my goal down every day and time blocking 5 hours a week to create a plan and implement it.

  172. Tina Pruitt

    My goal is turn my passion for shopping/thrifting into a 5 figure business this year (first year!). I will achieve this by refining my processes, establishing routines that squelch my ADHD, and always leaning in to business mentors and learning from their successes and challenges! Thank you Marie! 💕

    • Tina Pruitt

      See my “ps” below!
      January Task / Process started yesterday! ✅

  173. GET SHIT DONE. Take action!!! In order to start my business I actually have to get things done not just daydream.
    Take myself seriously and treat with respect as I do with the boss at my day job. I don’t show up there and wait to see if am inspired or not to do the work. I just do it. No question asked! Do any of us go to work and say like ‘hmmm I really don’t feel like working today…I might go home and have a nap and see how I go…’ ? :)))) Right?!
    So as of yesterday I’m the boss who will fire me in case I don’t tick those lists off. I actually read the book already and I don’t need this gift (no offence Marie). I just wanted to share how fired up I am now and how non negotiable I feel about DOING THE DREAM after reading Everything is Figureoutable. One thing is crystal clear guys. We either make it happen or we don’t. If it’s important enough we’ll make the time, find a way, take the action and most importantly FIGURE it out when things go south.
    May we all use this fire within us to keep us going and embody Figureoutable formula to not just see us through but also enjoy every step of the journey as well.
    P. S. If I was ever to be religious this book would be my Bible. There’s no words to express my gratitude. Thank you Marie <3

        AMEN to this, Sonja! We adore you. Here’s to being your own boss and getting sh*t DONE this year! We’re doing such a big happy dance for you. So thrilled the book has been inspiring! 💖

  174. Amal almayah

    • Amal almayah

      First thing done which is tagging friends on IG post
      My account is final.destiny.9

    • Amal

      I did it!

  175. Linda Lathrop

    Clearing my clutter, beginning today by reflecting and journaling about the purpose of everything I own and plan to keep. Do I need it or can I send each thing on it’s way to someone else for another purpose?
    Day #1 Today – Done

  176. I am going to finish my second youth novel by allocating 30 minutes every morning at my computer before I start my day job to write it.

  177. John Garland

    I am finishing up my latest poetry book; “Looking Forward unto the Greater Tomorrow” and plan to write 2 more books; JR the Wizard Bard: The Teachings of Endor” and “Touched Reality: An Autobiography of a Schizophrenic” by the end of the year. Why? Because I’ve never done it before!! When I wrote the trilogy of “Endor the Wizard,” it was written one year apart. My poetry books were written two to three years apart (the first book, I must say, was 40 years in the making).

  178. LeslieAnne Hasty

    My goals for this 2020 are:
    Build at least 10 more Animal themed journals on my Amazon platform. That will bring my total up to about 40. I’d shoot for more, but also work a full time job, and have a family!
    I believe that if we practice Mindfulness in every area of our lives, even with our furry, feathered and scaly family members, that the world will have to become a better place for everyone.
    So I’m scheduling in 1 hour each weekend to just build journals.

    • LeslieAnne Hasty

      And, i pinned one of the photos at the top to my Pinterest board : Inspiration!
      I’ve also forwarded this e-mail to my 3 artsy friends, who all make and sell their art…

  179. Tramaine Rocke

    I will email my new 2020 accountability partner today and confirm a time this week for us to update each other of our progress with our weekly goals:)

  180. Tina Pruitt

    ps, my first step is to list new inventory every day in January and to understand where my obstacles are in that process and remove them by standardizing my end-to-end listing procedure. I started yesterday with my January Challenge…I am taking note on what is slowing me down, time of day, what amount was completed and the time taken to do one article. So, results and procedures from January should give me insight on the right path to proceed on for rest of the year!

    • Tina Pruitt

      Above comment accompanied by response a few posts up!

      January Task / Process started yesterday! ✅

  181. Make enough money this year to be $30k up by December 21st, 2020. Get paid to do what I love, mostly from home but with a certain amount of being on the road (which I also love).

    • Lisa ji

      On it! (Or did it! If setting the goal is what I need to have done 🙂 )

  182. Find a singing performance opportunity. Did it!

  183. Melanie Timmins

    I did it! 😉

  184. Susan Pitman

    WROTE every one of my goals out! They are in four categories: Heart, health, home and handicraft…and then I honed in on the top ones per category.
    I’m scheduling now – both time AND PLACE – and creating an alternate.
    And today? I’m sharing this with my awesome friend and hoping she will be my accountability partner…
    This is great, Marie! Everything really is figureoutable!
    Here’s to achieving through engaging,
    Susan

  190. Sara Bozio Bralino

    What an inspiration. Going to write my goals down today and start writing them every day!! 💥

  191. Amanda Aksel

    This was an awesome ep! I’ve been writing my goals daily for the year for the past month and it’s making a huge difference. I have six BIG goals from personal to business but the most important one is raising my successors in my a youth leadership position I have. This will be my last year as I’m graduating the division. My goal is to raise 5 capable young women chapter leaders and 5 active Byakuren(behind the scenes support). With prayer and action these young women are appearing in my environment and I feel like for the first time in my four years as leader, I understand how to raise people to stand up. I’m determined to report absolute victory by December 2020!!!

    • Amanda Aksel

      Done!

    Thank you Marie for giving me that little extra that I needed. I’ve been doing pretty good with my goals so far except for the exercise part. I am going to work out right now in my studio. P.S. I recently found gel pens and OMG, they are my all time favorite pen.

    • Penelope

      I completed my workout (I’ll be sore tomorrow). I think I tagged my daughter and my niece, not sure how to use Instagram yet. I’ll ask my daughter for help when she wakes up. Thank you Marie and your team for always inspiring me. I wouldn’t be here without you. Big hug!

      • Julia - Team Forleo

        GO Penelope! We’re so happy you’re here and taking awesome care of yourself. 🤗 XOXO

  195. Sarah

    So already brought the book as a Christmas present for me self after doing the decade in review and felt great and just wanted to say thank you.
    No new years resolutions just focused goals and gratitude practices that i am undertaking.
    Just wanted to send some love you way all the way from the UK as you do so much for us and theirs not a lot we can do in return.
    Hit me up if you think of anything though just really and truly saying thank you again would love to share on Instagram although i do not use it.
    So positive thoughts and so much joy and enthusiasm coming into this new because of you and loving the book.
    Thank you

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Thank you SO much for the kind words, Sarah – they really mean the world! We’re thrilled to hear the Decade in Review was a positive process for you and hope you’re getting a lot out of the book, too ☺️ We’d be so grateful if you share our work and episodes with anyone you know who could also benefit! XO

  196. I’m going to hand out a big postcard with my business info on it at a chamber of commerce meeting today!!!

  197. Kath

    My intention for 2020 is to create healthier habits in my life, mentally and physical. Continue with my running and weight training goals-run a 15 k trail run in October. Mental: work on my triggers that cause me to spiral into a mental ditch, and change those negative actions that I take to coupe with negative situations. And my soul is saying that I need to write about it. So I spoke with the one person that I know who has wrote a book and asked her to mentor me. So after I spoke to her, I ran to Walmart and purchased good gel pens and fun composition notebooks in order to start my journey.

  198. Danette

    2nd day of B-School (that I purchased last year) 6-9AM in my home office.

  199. Nikita Aggarwal

    Hey Marie. I am Nikita, a recent college graduate and my goal is to build a meaningful business this year. I think a lot and research everyday, to be able to put my ideas on the table with confidence, sometimes no real world experience makes me take a long deep breath and another moment, I push myself again to just GET ONTO IT!
    1. I recently started writing my top goals of the year every morning and a breakdown of how to make them possible. You saying that, confirms I’m doing the right way 🙂
    2. I usually work on my plans throughout the day, writing, learning, researching, noon-evening. My only place to focus is my study corner with all my books and supplies, and from now on, I’ll also stick with a specific time so I’m not fiddling around with different activities.
    3. Right after learning these strategies, I shared my goals with my best friend, and also updated him with recent steps I took. Good part, he is willing to help and make sure I’m working on my dreams. :))

    • Nikita Aggarwal

      DONE!
      3 hours of some productive work and I plan on to keep working at the same time everyday to maintain discipline and focus. Thankyou so much! You are such an inspiration for so many women 🙂

  200. My goal is to help my team identify their goals for the year and develop an actionable plan. We meet first time this year on tuesday,January 14th in a rented office space i have already arranged for. I am actually already working on my presentation as well strategies.

    Thanks Marie, this video is so timely. It re-enforced some points i already had as well opened me up to new one. You are a star

  201. Kellie Porter

    I will find a job this year!! I moved from Atlanta, GA to Copenhagen, Denmark and have been searching for a job for more than a year. I have recently discovered your videos and podcast and I feel like a have a friend cheering me on. I wrote my end of decade journal/goals and guess what… my fifteen year old son and my husband did them with me! So, the actions I have taken is that every day I do something pertaining to the job search. I have updated my CV and created profiles on a few job search sites here in Copenhagen AND I signed up for a job search coaching seminar for tips on the Danish work force scene. I am listening to your book on Audible but would love a signed copy and some of those awesome stickers!! Today – I will enlist a friend to be my accountability partner – thank you for the suggestions and 2020 here we go!

  202. 1. Setting up my new office on Weds, Jan 8th and posting 10 new income streams that are possible in my business on my white board.

  209. JoAnn Janke

    I am approaching retirement age and need a “second career” to supplement my income. I also need to stay busy. This is the year I start on my journey by starting a crafting business. I will need to practice and learn before I am ready to start selling, so it’s super important for me to carve out time and a quiet place to practice. My first action step was to order some equipment I will need; it is getting delivered this week ! Along with that, I am rearranging my home office to make it a comfortable crafting space, with storage and work space that will keep me motivated and draw me in so I don’t want to leave. I have been studying what is available in my local stores to help me determine the direction I want to go and to identify any missing needs in my local marketplace. Thanks to Marie, I now have the supporting strategies I need to make this happen ! I have already written it down on my white board; I have scheduled time a few days a week on my calendar and I have committed to a friend that I will keep her in the loop so she can see what fabulous items I make . Thank you Marie; Everything TRULY is Figureoutable !

    • JoAnn Janke

      I did it !

  210. Goal: Registering my business in autumn this year, because I love helping women to have pleasure and freedom plentiful. I just love coaching and it’s my way of helping humanity. In order to help as many people as possible I have to show up and serve, so today’s step forward is writing my newsletter.

  211. I wrote down my goal for this year this morning at work. Will definitely continue that each morning, as I’m at work early in the morning, the same time each day.

  212. This year I am going to create the online course business that I’ve been dreaming up. I am capable, and I can do this! My first step is to write down my goal 15 times today.

  213. Karen

    Start a new goal journal, focusing on 3 must-done things in everyday. Today!

  214. This year in February I will be selected for the Dallas Ted Talk fellow! My Ted Talk will reach global success by unlocking the keys to low back pain ~ one of my gifts of illumination to humanity!

  216. Allison Oelger

    I commit to killing the sugar dragon, more veggies and daily movement. I have written this goal down in my journal but now I’ll incorporate writing it 15 times a day. When I crave sugar I will do one of the following: take a walk, drink a LaCroix, leave the kitchen, read a book, listen to music, call or text a friend. Sugar leaves me feeling mean, anxious and gross. It does me no favors as a cancer survivor and health advocate. I am doing this to feel healthy, calm and strong. I am worth it!

    • Allison Oelger

      Today I woke up and did 45 minutes of Barre3! I’ve written my goals in my journal 15 times and I will not eat sugar today!

      • Allison Oelger

        I did it!

  217. Wrote down —15x—-I will make $500 selling my art on Sanibel -this weekend. Which made me also take into consideration the things that needed to be scheduled—so I scheduled them. Done.

    A friend and I have decided to team up on our creative businesses because we have a similar audience and the accountability with the other person is boosting both of our productivity levels. I will get more consistent with writing my goals down daily. Thank you for the support!

    • Amanda Cook

      I did it!

  224. Julie Colibri

    I am back to doing merkaba meditation daily–and following Marie’s advice to write down my goals, set a time and place to work on them, and follow up weekly on my efforts with a friend or better yet an accountability group!

  225. Beta launch my online legacy training program (even if it isn’t perfect) by the end of the week of January 7.

  226. I am starting my own web based health and wellness education and empowerment website. I have decided to sign up for B school and will be in touch with Kelsey Murphy today to get on the waitlist! Can’t wait to read your book and continue being inspired by you! Thank you.

  227. Cari Crabtree

    I will enjoy a walk outside around our office business complex at 1pm today.

  229. I’m starting a brand new online store that supports pollinators and their habitat. I’ve received new inventory over the Christmas holidays. Yay!
    I’m slowly learning each piece of how to mange my site. TODAY I’m going to get all my products online!

  230. I will Finally record the video add for my online business while hiking with my daughter this Thursday in the Redwood Forest.

  231. Buy a home. Write it down, today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter.

    • Hey Natalie, think about making some of your passwords buyahome, ownahome2020 or something like that so you are typing it over and over again each time you have to enter a password.

  232. I am going to run 50 miles this month! I am 10.3 miles in so far. Get it gurl!

  233. I did it!
    Top goal written down 15 times today in my daily journal. Will form a daily habit.
    I already have accountability partners and write down my goals regularly but not 15 times per day 🙂

    “I am the global best-selling author of Meditations of a Former Statue”

    Thank you 💕

  234. I feel like this is cheating because I’m already doing these things! I don’t write my goals down multiple times a day, but I do read them every day, write them out once a week afresh and ‘tick off’ daily when I’ve taken a step (baby or big) towards it!
    Accountability FB message every Sunday night with a friend on our goals to read 20 books this year / do 5 tasks a week towards marketing our businesses, and to keep up with my daily habits from 2019 of meditation, exercise and healthy eating!
    Finally, I literally began time-blocking (tasty time chunks as you call it!) this weekend towards those steps towards my goals; ensuring to use a verb at the beginning of the to-do item. I love how it all came together!

    Today’s to-dos are to finish this page revamp & outreach directly to someone who enquired about my work!

  235. Rema

    i need to buy a journal today and till then write it down on my planner and start writing my goals down 15 times a day. doing a detox, reading the books I ordered on cleaning, anxiety, starting a homeschooling group, next week but first will create a homeschooling facebook group today with my friends.
    Done!

  236. Therese

    Implementing the marketing message strategy I am developing with a coach by Feb. 15.

  237. Girl if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t of come out of my mental rut.

    First, can you be my friend to schedule an appointment with?

    Second, my goal is to be a top producer of children’s books

    Third, I will write it down every day

    I am a top producer
    I am a top producer
    I am a top producer

  238. I started writing my goals EVERY SINGLE DAY in October – when the Everything is Figuroutable Daily Practice was introduced by Marie in her special training! Never looked back since, and I recommend it to EVERYBODY. Even if you are highly doubtful: what do you have to lose? It takes like two minutes a day to do the bare minimum! Simply write “I commit to becoming a world-class athlete/a successful trainer/published writer/whatever you desire”, and it will already make a change!

    • DONE EVERY SINGLE DAY SINCE OCTOBER 2019!!

      • Susan

        Thanks for another perfect post, Marie and team! Your inspiration + education = transformation formula never fails to get my inner drill team bouncing into (oookayladiesnowletsgetin) formation.

        WHEN: Complete list by noon AST.
        WHERE: Hotel lobby, if outlet available. If not, hotel room.

        • Susan

          No outlet needed for ye old pen and paper, huh? Tell that to jet lag brain up here.

          • Susan

            Done! P.S. to my fellow pen geeks – if you haven’t tried Pilot Frixon erasable pens, find some for those daily lines. Rainbow of colors in ballpoint, markers, highlighters and they erase like you won’t believe. 😳😳😳😍 deep future fun fo yo 2020!

    I am going into year 2 with the same MLM company. I want to be number 1 in 3 counties. I have had such a hard time balancing doing this and life. I have been trying to do it by myself to no avail. I would appreciate all the direction I can get.
    Thank you
    Sherry Wheeler

    • The good news – everything is figureoutable.
      In addition to Marie’s book and awesome videos, in “Girl Stop Apologizing”, Rachel Hollis has a chapter on asking for help and another on building a foundation for success.

  240. I am doing it today and right now. Goal is to grow business by double this year. Will set up new opt in and email it to my list. My list is golden and most important asset I have. Also putting opt in on website.
    I have been following Marie for year and have been through B School twice- love it! Moved my business from home (Kim S Joy Stained Glass and Jewelry) to brick and mortar (Art Happens on Tarboro) in November 2018.

  241. Rachel

    I am going to list all my goals for this year.

  242. My main goal this year is to protect my positive energy by keeping a morning routine where I meditate/sit still with myself, go for a leisurely walk and remind myself what my bigger goals are everyday.

    The last six months I spent them completely submerged in worry, self-doubt and darkness around finding clients for my business. I was always next to my computer and I punished myself; I didn’t do anything that wasn’t work-related cause I had “so much to do”. That made me have a constant negative energy where I saw scarcity rather than abundance and where I lost confidence in myself.

    This year I can’t allow that to happen. So I am sticking to my morning routine, that does include writing my goals and scheduling my actions steps like Marie suggests.
    Also, by sticking to a routine I can gain pride on myself again, and I need to celebrate small victories so badly!

  243. Kim

    PERSONAL GOAL: Take Mondays off for art/painting. I tried doing this on Fridays last year… it didn’t work, something always came up!

    • Kim

      SCHEDULED: Recurring appointment set digital; inked in Bullet Journal
      good weather: take a walk with my sketchbook, and use it! bad weather: turn off my computer and drag out the paints in my home office
      WRITE IT: Monday is my art day… 15 x – This felt pretty goofy writing down.. on a Tuesday, but by the time Monday rolls around, it will be second nature and there’s NO WAY I’ll skip ART DAY!!
      ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER: We already had a meet up scheduled today – perfect timing!
      INSTAGRAM: Done – 4 peeps xoxo

  244. Carol Richer

    Done. Setting goals!

    My goal is to get my first online course out there and hoping that this side hustle becomes my main job. I want to change something in this world. Make it better! Help the younger women find their place in the corporate world. I have set a weekly meeting with friends to be sure that I do the job. My accountability team who kicks my “behind” if I don’t to the work 🙈🙈🙈

    My goal is to get my website working again. And the first step is to go through templates to find a suitable one and call the person who is going to do it for me.

      Done! I am so grateful to you Marie and the team Forleo! I’ve been meaning to do this for the last two years, but haven’t ‘cos it’s such a huge task. Unbelievable! It took less than an hour and I got to have a nice chat with a friend of mine. I don’t have an instagram account, so I’ll be spreading the good word by other means.

  247. I love this and it is easy to do, keep the goal top of mind daily! Talk about multiplying my chances of reaching my goals, I am ALL in!! I commented on Instagram and tagged a bunch of people. I tagged the place where my amazing book club meets, and I hope that I know WHO wins the book and that they bring it to book club in Feb. Everything is Figureoutable is our book and how fun would it be to show up with a signed copy!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
    I love reading the comments as well, thank you!

  248. My goal is to create something new that others will want to buy 👍🏻

    This year I am going to take the Health Coach course by IIN to help me in my business. I am going to block off two hours a day on my agenda to dedicate to studying!

    I will add a space in my planner to write down my goal everyday.
