To solidify it even more, I have the privilege to introduce to you Kathi Lipp's newest book, The Me Project. It couldn't have come at a better time. I anxiously awaited it's arrival in the mail and once it was in my hands, I got going on finding an accountability partner. My twin sis was and still is my accountability partner, reminding me to take time to hear God's voice as I dream dreams and to allow myself to be important and valued without excuses. We've both gotten much from this 21 day journey.
One of the projects that I enjoyed was the Not-To-Do List. I'm a list maker so being able to make a list of things that I didn't have to do or at least do perfectly was the best thing ever...an excuse to not feel guilty if I didn't bathe the dogs, dust and clean out the fridge.
I also enjoyed the chapter on Understanding the Things That Hold Us Back. I'm queen of being buried under things that prevent me from doing the things that I enjoy or following my heart in accomplishing a goal. Kathi tells us how break those things we procrastinate over into little bit size pieces and to face them in a way where they are easier to accomplish.
This article gives you a glimpse of what a wonderful, humorous, wise author Kathi is as she shows you how to Kick Start Living Your Dream.
Kick Start Living Your Dream -
(San Jose, CA) Has that rush to make (and break) New Year’s resolutions already waned? According to Daniel Pink, author of â€¨Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, taking small steps every day will not only help you stay committed to your goal, â€¨but will also help you ultimately achieve that goal when obstacles come up. Author Kathi Lipp wants you and your friends to live out those dreams—and have some fun along the way.
As women, we forget the goals and dreams of our younger years. The busyness of everyday life gets â€¨in the way. To-do lists replace goals. The Me Project provides women with fun and creative ways to bring back the sense of purpose and vitality that comes with living out the plans and dreams God has planted in our hearts. Kathi Lipp’s warm tone and laugh-out-loud humor motivates women to take daily steps toward intentional goals. The end result? We get back our lives and enjoy living in the confidence of a purposeful life in spite of our chaotic schedules.
This handy guide coaches women to do one simple thing toward achieving our goals each day for three weeks. A woman experiencing the exhilaration of a rediscovered life offers more as a wife, mother, friend, volunteer, career woman.
Finding the balance between living day-to-day with purpose while pursuing the passions God has placed in our hearts is a delicate pursuit. In this refreshing, insightful book, â€¨Kathi lays out a doable plan that makes sense and helps make our God-given dreams â€¨a reality. Never stop dreaming, because women who dare to dream do make the world â€¨a better place.
