Thank you for this. I have been stagnant with my goals for this quarter but thank God for March. I just get overwhelmed and then procrastinate but I don’t want to, it just happens. After today’s video, I realize I am still seeking perfection even after I talk myself out of it, a lot. I do all these things but lose faith somewhere so then it becomes chaos and nothing is done. One thing I can do today is make fill in my Prepare Well sheet for March.:)

Wonderful! Hi Shanda, one thing I need to work on is being less idle. Can you please post a link to the “time tracker” mentioned in the refresh? I was unable to attain it.
I’ve already seen one halfway mark to a major finish line goal today! By the grace of God, after some years of medical limitations and then pure laziness, I got my permit today. It has been such a journey with over 6 years of life-threatening seizures, but Jesus has been with me the entire way! Praise Him today!
With Love, Tia

I just received my PowerSheets so Iโ€™m just starting out, but thatโ€™s ok :). I just finished up my Prep Work and Iโ€™m ready to get going!

Love this! Thank you!! I’ve been seeing progress with my workouts. I’ve been able to lift heavier weights. I’ve been tracking my workouts, so I’ve been able to notice progress!

Thank you Shanda for the reminders about time wasters. Sure watching TV can be relaxing but if we set limits on how long we watch, then we will have time to work on our goals.

And thank you Team Cultivate for removing the background music. It is easier to focus on what Shanda is saying.

Yes, thank you Team Cultivate! Removing the (pleasant) music actually helps me with one of my many goals: Focus! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m definitely going to be using my TODAY planning pad and the break it down one. They’re so helpful but I often forget to use them!

This may seem simple but it is huge: my progress for the quarter, so far, is to actually WRITE IN my POWERSHEETS!

Before mid-Feb., I wrote everything on separate pages because I wanted to “save” the PS (?!?!?! somebody tell me, for what??? lol) … even my Cultivate Your Year notes all went on separate pages that I stored inside my PS.

Well, sometime in February, I said, “USE YOUR POWERSHEETS!” and I did…no more juggling pages and losing loose sheets…just writin’ away in the ole Powersheets…just as Lara (and God) intended.

In the (altered) lyrics of Wilson Phillips: “Break free from the chains…Yeah. I know that there is pain, but you WRITE ON for one more day.

HUGE!!

Sometimes, we can be silly like this, but I totally get it!

I totally get it! I remember that when I received my PS in the mail, I thought, “They’re so pretty; how will I possibly write on these?!” (I was glad to hear people say, many times, Don’t be afraid to get messy.)

I am excited about the progress I have made with my health and habits goal. I am starting to see real progress in this area and that makes me happy.

Next Quarter I am looking to scale back a little and have a little more focus on developing my encouragement ministry. I am hoping that God will give me even more ways to encourage others!

I loved the action plan of setting an alarm on my phone, before scrolling through social media. It’s a way to engage on platforms guilt free- but then when the alarm rings, no matter where I’m at- it’ll signal to me to sign off. I think this will help my brain to create a priority list before scrolling like birthdays-groups-then feed. I’m excited to try this next week! I’m taking Sunday off socials! WOOHOO!!! Making space and time for what matters most to me! Thanks for sharing!!!

I have sown seeds and am seeing progress on my health & wellness, decluttering my house and creating a home, spending more intentional time with my hubby, and developing our wine blog more fully.

This was helpful! I am guilty of having the “I’ll start next month” mentality so this was a great push to start today and finish Q1 strong. One of my favorite things about Q1 is that our family now does family devotions nearly every single morning. I love seeing our kids learn more about the Word! A goal I want to work more on in Q2 is pouring more into the children we sponsor as a family. I want to consistently write them to encourage them and I want to learn Spanish so I can communicate with them on our next visit!
