Resolutions Quote: Less Talking, More Doing

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

With the start of the new year, resolutions in full force, I needed a visual reminder.  One that could stare me in the face- hung up on my mirror in my bathroom.  While I might not venture everywhere in my house every day, I will for sure brush my teeth at least once a day  so it’s guaranteed to be seen there. 
Recently I was chatting with the awesomest DIY-er of all, Mandi, and we both hemmed and hawed about how we need to stop talking about doing things and just do them.  She stumped me when she said, “Why do you have to tell anyone?” (about your goals)  I guess I always thought that in order to really be held accountable, I needed to declare to the world that I wanted to _____(insert all kinds of goals here)_____.  While sometimes that can be the exact thing I need to do to reach said goal, other times it’s frustrated me and made me feel like I have to justify why I didn’t actually complete _____(goal)______.  
While I spend the year with joy- looking, seeking, and creating it-  I also want to talk less and DO more.  Anyone with me on this?

    So true! I have a list of a gazillion projects in my head, but whenever I have some time on my hands I forget what I wanted to do. So for me, it is more note-taking and more doing. I just started doing that digitally and in a notebook. Usually I don’t tell people about my plans before, though – it’s hard to express exactly what I want to do.

      Hi Anja- my mind is swirling with projects. Always. I wish I could shut if off sometimes. I like the idea of both digital and notebook note taking. Thanks for the comment and Happy New Year!
