More pocket journal sneak peeks

While we're on the subject of goal-setting (and, in due course, goal-achieving) I wanted to show you another Big Ticket prompt.

I love the process of moving toward a goal -- not just the actual, step-by-step work of doing that thing, but also the thinking involved.  I love to mull ideas over (until they cry uncle!) and suss them out and try to figure out why this goal? and why now?  (I think 49 journal pages might have something to do with my tendency to mull over and suss out and wonder about.)

For the Big Ticket prompts, not only did I want to provide space for you to record the nuts and bolts of the work involved, but also to record the meaning behind the work.  To have a space to remember why your goals matter to you and why you started working toward them in the first place.

And then there are the threes.  To me, lists of threes are a delightfully perfect length.  Short enough to complete in one sitting and long enough to record the gist of just about any subject.  For the pocket journal, I've gathered together some threes, just for fun.  There are two more a little further down that page . . .

The next step, I hope, is to list the journals in my shop.  I'm still working behind the scenes to finalize packaging and sort out the postage and write descriptions and fight with my camera and dream up a teeny, tiny extra that might find its way into each package.  I thought about writing about all the little details, but then I wasn't sure.  Is that something you'd like to read about?  Let me know and I'll whip up another post.  Or not.  You know, depending.

hugs,
Christie

  3. I am a new follower after finding your pages on pinterest and am anxiously awaiting these journals to come to your shop! I want a couple of them and think I am going to do the same exercises every year- to see how things have changed and how I've grown. I'm excited for you (and a little for me to be able to use your talents)!
