New Years equal new beginnings. So, it’s no surprise to think of the end of one calendar year and the beginning of a new one as a chance to start with a clean slate. Traditionally, we set goals and make resolutions to improve our health & relationships or go on a much needed vacation. And sometimes, we decide to tackle those decorating projects we’ve been ignoring.
You’ve probably heard the expression, “Thoughts become things!” While true, thoughts without action rarely manifest into reality. Thinking of and setting goals is one thing. But, it’s important to set ones we truly believe we have the tenacity and will power to accomplish. Otherwise, failure just becomes one more self-imposed disappointment for the year.
Let’s say you’re mulling over a new kitchen in the New Year. Yet, you have no idea where the funds will come from to pay for it. Maybe, you need to set a more realistic goal. That doesn’t mean you can’t want or plan for a new kitchen. But, perhaps this year’s goal is simply beginning with new appliances.
A common complaint we hear from clients throughout the year is not knowing where to start. Many are so overwhelmed by the number of decisions to be made with any decorating project, they procrastinate, or worse, never start at all.
Our advice to them is similar to that of making New Year’s resolutions. Set realistic, achievable goals for your decor rather than letting fear of the final result keep you from beginning.
As we set our own personal and business goals for 2018, we look forward to and are thankful for the opportunity to work with as many of you as possible to help you meet your own decorating & home improvement goals.
Our mission statement reads in part: “Décor Designs, Inc. believes in helping homeowners with their decorating goals, dilemmas and the evolution of their living spaces.“
If you’ve set a goal to redecorate a part or all of your home in the New Year, don’t let fear of making mistakes keep you from reaching your goal. Another good resolution might be to ask for help! In that case, we are standing by to guide you and help you create the beautifully redecorated space you set out to achieve.
Here’s to reaching all your goals and to a Happy & Healthy New Year from all of us at Decor Designs!
