Why I am Letting January Be My Planning Month & My Themes for This Year

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 296

Are you done planning for your new year ahead yet?! Was December a little crazy?! Raising our hands over here because YES! Us too! December actually doesn’t really lend to be a good planning month because as moms, we’re in triage mode where it feels like everything needs to get done.

If you don’t have your plan together for 2023, neither does Cara — and there’s nothing wrong with you. In this episode, Cara is sharing why she does her planning for the year ahead in January, how she does it and how you can get started too.

So, what do I want out of the year? Is perfectionist mindset keeping you unable to start your goals? What do you want your life to like? What are your plans for the things that you are excited about? Go ahead and think it through. What did you want to do this January? Did you put too much on your plate? Do you need to back up a little bit? Are you ready to move forward? Where do you need an adjustment?

We just want to remind you that YES! You are a busy mom BUT you are still a person who is capable of achieving their goals. You just need the right plan.

Let’s dive in.
