A System for Success by Josie Riviera

 Because we are now six months into the new year, I recently took some time to review my January goals.

My goals included:

Health and Fitness





Although I've progressed on my exercise routine and manage to carve out 60 minutes of aerobic exercise 5 days a week, I still plan to spend more time with my adult children and their families on the weekends.

Regarding my writing career, I hope to finish writing another 1-800 book, and then begin another book in the inspirational Seeking Series.

I also want to learn a new language. Many of you know that my husband and I purchased an apartment in Italy, and I need to spend more time learning Italian.

Now that life is becoming more "normal," I plan to begin volunteering again in my community. My husband and I also joined a Bible Study, and will be studying Ephesians.

Most important, I plan to spend more time enjoying life and "smelling the roses."

Do you have any goals for this year? Please leave your comments below.

  1. Josie, I am always so impressed with your organization. To help with my fitness, I have joined Orange Therapy Fitness. So far twice a week in addition to my tennis and walking.

    1. I've heard about Orange Therapy Fitness and it's supposed to be excellent. Enjoy!

  2. That sounds like an awesome plan, Josie!

  3. Great goals and you’re meeting them!
    I need to finish writing a few books-in-progress. Trying to focus on one at a time but finding it a chore lately or really, a pandemic rut! (albeit writing is a labor of love.)
    I need to mix things up creatively so i am going to bake & decorate cookies for my son and his fiancée’s shower next week.
    I haven’t done that in a few years and it feels exciting.
    Other goals are finish a website and maybe get newsletters out. I work as well so it’s baby steps.
    What pretty flowers you posted!

    1. Thank you. Baking and decorating cookies sounds like fun.
