Goals: Big and Juicy

As promised, this post is a follow up to my previous one about finding your one word for 2012. What’s great about finding that one word is that it will almost always represent a GOAL for you. Often times we mistake strategies for goals. We think “to make $80k a year” is a goal, when that is a strategy — an action step that may or may not feed our overall big, juicy goal.  Here’s a little video I created to explore this matter in more detail. Enjoy!


About Courtney Putnam

I first came to healing work through art and writing. Creating collage art and poetry in particular allowed me to deeply understand the benefit of self-expression in the healing process. But, I also began to see the benefit of bodywork (manual work in the form of massage and energywork in the form of Reiki) as keys to unlocking the emotional stresses we hold in our bodies. I became a Reiki practitioner in 2002, received an MFA in Creative Writing in 2003, received my massage license in the spring of 2006, and became a Reiki Master in 2010. In my practice I bring together these three areas -- the body, the mind, and the spirit (or energy body) -- so others may experience profound and positive change in their lives.

    I love, love, love when you toss the “lose 10 pounds” idea over your shoulder.
