Don’t Forget Your Goals Over the Holidays

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Maximizing Mindset , Videos

In recent years, the holidays started starting earlier and earlier in the year. It can be easy to get caught up in the magic, miracles and madness of the holiday season.

Unfortunately, many times we lose sight of some important things in our life while we are dealing with holiday stress.

In this week’s goal setting tip, I remind you of something important that you probably forgot about as you get more involved in the holiday season.

Communicate Your Goals & Their Impact on Others

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Maximizing Mindset , Videos

As much as we might wish the people closest to us (those living in our homes with us) could read our minds and our intentions… that just isn’t the case.

And as much as we’d like the people closest to us to support us in achieving our greatest dreams, oftentimes they don’t know what our dreams are OR how the changes in our actions will impact them.

In this week’s video, I share some thoughts on how to share with the people in your household about the changes you are making (so you can achieve your goals) AND how they can expect to be impacted by those changes.

Open and honest conversations will help you all have greater understanding of what’s going on. That will help you move forward with a lightness of heart that will help you keep moving toward your goals.

The Big Leap

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Maximizing Mindset , Videos

In goal setting, as in life, our mindset plays a huge part in our level of success. I’ve been reading the book “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks. It is a powerful read and has the potential to change lives if we let it.

In this week’s video I share an overview of the first couple of chapters. I cannot do this book and the messages justice, but hopefully I make you curious enough to check it out for yourself.

Reduce Goal Achieving Overwhelm

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Videos

Have you ever been working on a project and moving forward nicely and then suddenly stalled? Or perhaps you had a great idea, but couldn’t quite get yourself started.

I know it happens to me. In fact, it happens fairly often.

I think it happens to most (if not all) of us.

What we do when that happens, we we stall on our journey to achieving our goals, is what matters. It can change the outcome of any work we’ve put forth in achieving that goal.

Today’s goal setting tip offers a way to free up your brain power so you can start moving forward again.

Aim High and Stretch to Reach Your Goals

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Videos

Michelango said, “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

When you set your goals, do you aim so that you are guaranteed to achieve them? If you do, I have a question for you… where’s the fun in that? 🙂

Goal setting should be scary and exciting. It should make your heart race and your inner voice scream for you to slow down, take a breath, be “realistic!”

In this week’s goal setting tip, I encourage you to dream big AND support the people around you who dare to dream big.

Goal Setting Tip: Using Blocks of Time Effectively

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Videos

It happens to all of us.

We expect to do something, and then plans change. When this happens, sometimes a large block of time is freed up.

Do you take full advantage of these situations?

Do you use the time to relax with a good book outdoors? Do you work on a long neglected project? Do you focus on tasks that have been put off for too long at home?

In this week’s goal setting tip video, I encourage you to take advantage of these unexpected blocks of time, by always be prepared to take advantage of them!


What do you do with unexpected blocks of free time? Please share your tips for using this time wisely in the comments below.

Goal Setting Tip: Combine Your Errands to Free Up Time

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Videos

Does this sound like you?

You leave work and realize you need to stop at the grocery store for some cat food. You arrive home and realize you also needed (desperately needed) toilet paper.

So out you go again. This time you head to the department store where you purchase other items, too.

The next day you leave work and realize you need to swing by the ATM machine because you forgot to get some extra cash when you were at the grocery store OR the department store.

Each of these errands eats up valuable time in your day.

This week’s goal setting tip addresses the benefits of batching like errands together to free up precious time in your day.

Goal Setting Tip: Have a Powerful Motivating “Why”

By Donna Doyon | Blog , Gratifying Goals , Videos

Setting goals is easy.

You determine a change you want to see in your life and you declare it a goal.

Achieving that goal is not always easy.

There are many factors that help and hinder your progress toward achieving your goals. One of the best ways to help you achieve that goal is to have a strong motivational “why.”

In this week’s goal setting tip, I talk about a recent goal I achieved, but then had difficulty maintaining. I finally realized that the “why” that helped me focus on this goal, no longer applied.

To remain focused, I needed to find another, equally motivating, “why.”



What’s your goal, and what’s your “why”? Is your motivation strong enough to help you resist temptation? Is it powerful enough to silence your critics (internal and external)?

If you enjoyed today’s video, please use the buttons below to share it with your friends.

Until next week,

Goal Setting Tip: The Method is Not the Goal

By Donna Doyon | Gratifying Goals , Videos

You would think I’d know better by now.

After all, I have been setting and achieving goals for many decades.

But some days, I still don’t get it right. 🙂

In this week’s goal setting tip, I am once again focusing on the plank challenge that Earl and I started together. I have learned so much from this challenge about goal achieving!



Here are links to the other two videos I did based on the plank challenge.

The saga begins…
