LH 100: Setting Mid-Year Farm Fresh Goals

How to set new goals for the rest of the year

Remember those goals you set for yourself at the beginning of 2017?

How are they coming along?

If you’re like most people, a few of those goals have fallen by the wayside. Or perhaps you never got around to setting any goals at all!

Well, here’s your chance to fix that.

We are officially halfway through the year and it’s the perfect time to regroup and set goals for the remainder of the year.

These can be personal goals or they can be homesteading or garden related goals. No matter what the goal is, you can use this system to create and follow through with them.


You will learn:

  • The exact steps to reach the goals you want
  • How each goal will require a payment from you
  • The best time frame for reaching your goals
  • How to set up your motivations so you stay on track
  • How SMART goals can help
  • The secret to preventing procrastination
  • Why reverse engineering works



1) Brain dump your ideas on paper

2) Pick just 3-4 goals to work on per quarter

3) List out what you need to give up for each goal

4) Transition each goal into a SMART goal

5) Get clear on your why

6) Reverse engineer each goal

7) Schedule all the mini-steps

8) Get started!
