Reading Time: 7 Minutes Powersheets review time again! If you noticed, I skipped my August video … … because I was on SABBATICAL! One of my very favorite months of the year and annual traditions of our (now) three-year-old marriage. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my goals, and including what went […]

Reading Time: 6 Minutes Eek—Powersheets review time again! June is my ABSOLUTE hands-down favorite month of the year (December is close second, as Christmas has my heart). My June memories dance between swimming lessons growing up and running through the sprinkler with neighbors, Vacation Bible School crafts and wandering through farmer’s goods at the curb market before ballet class.

If you’re a fan of Emily Ley, you know about Lara Casey, and vice versa. They’re buds, launched businesses nearly side-by-side, and are known for their products: Emily for her planner and Lara for her Powersheets.

Traditional goal-setting? It just didn’t work for me. I needed more than a shame-inducing piece of paper of New Year’s resolutions!

Here’s the exact method I use to achieve goals now, using a workaround method to sync up my Powersheets and Simplified Planner!

Reading Time: 5 Minutes April, you were a sun-dappled month of spring bustle, wheels-up jet-setting, and one big ‘ol launch (hence a lot of sleep). As for you May? Let’s roll. Each fresh start of the month, I’ll be telling you an update on my April goals, and including my May goals—this is also the subject of this week’s video […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes February, you were cozy, full of rain showers, airports upon airports, plane row middle-seats, and sleep-in mornings. This first morning of March, I felt like a bear stretching post-hibernation, and ready to bounce towards a bit of a “hustle-ish” season after a few months of quieted winter days. 2017 wrapped with a big house move […]

Powersheets Progress: My February Recap + March Goals

Reading Time: 5 Minutes I’ll be honest: January wasn’t what I expected. We went from a year of a big move, December of Wes being groomsman x2  (spring? x4. He’s popular.), slowing a business WAY down, and a December where I’m quite positive I worked nearly every day just to calm things down and do my part to move […]

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Well, we did it: we moved, wrapped up the first full financial calendar year of the business (and 42 clients and a partridge in a pear tree) and celebrated Christmas—all within two weeks. Welcome home to the Carter Craftsman! 😉 ‘Twas a cardboard-scented, grace-filled holiday of realizing a lot of my to-do list and Powersheets […]

Reading Time: 5 Minutes It’s pouring rain outside my little studio window, and—this is the first time I’m saying this publicly—this is my last week in the little ranch home we’ve lived in since we got married. The nostalgia’s wafting up like the Christmas Spirit flavor (is that the right word??) essential oils diffusing beside me, but I’m not […]

Powersheets Progress: My December Goals

Open Post

Reading Time: 4 Minutes Goal setting is one of my favorite ways to worship the Lord and steward my time, leaning into gifts He’s given me (and let’s be honest, without goals, I’d revert to my two speeds: (speed 1) 150 miles an hour working non-stop and exhausting myself and (speed 2) 8 hours of Netflix on British castles […]
