Pampered Chef: WHOOO HOOO...got "The Box"

    I am so excited as DHL delivered "the box" for my Vienna Trip with my plane tickets and all!!! For those of you who have never been on a trip before, we always get a box filled with fun goodies!! For Disney World it was a box filled with blue confetti with a white star plastic box with our luggage tags and fun light up necklaces!! Always a great presentation! I heard the Alaskan Cruise has a ship horn that went off when you opened the box!!

    Don't want to tell you what I got in "the box" for Vienna, just in case someone else hasn't gotten theirs yet!!

    WHOOO HOOOO... in less than 2 weeks I will be in Vienna! Can't wait!! :D

    WOOO! That is so awesome. The trips that they have sound just great. I can only dream of going to Vienna! Just starting off, it seems like something that is so far away (kinda like being a freshman in high school).

    I did get a box today too though! It was with my Spring samples in it. And also I got the things that I ordered from Merrill as well. But I think I'd take your box over my box! :)

    You can do it...

    Anyone can earn the trips. :p They may seem out of reach, but when you set smaller goals to acheive the larger goal...it will happen. When I look at the point value of 68,000 points for Atlantis it seems daunting. But when I broke my goals down...this is off of my goal sheet that I made on the plane home from Leadership... :D

    Points required Director 68,000
    Advanced Director 64,000
    Bonus points from December 5,000

    I need 63,000 points-D
    59,000 points-AD
    I want...

    12 qualified recruits= 12,000 points (1 a month- very acheivable!)
    2 promoted Directors = 6,000 points

    That leaves....

    33,000 points-D
    29,000 points-AD

    Monthly sales needed-
    $2,750 @ 12 months
    $3,300 @ 10 months

    Advanced Director
    $2450 @ 12 months
    $2900 @ 10 months

    When you break your goals down into monthly goals, it seems much more attainable.

    I currently have 25,000 points and 3 qualified recruits this year!! So I am on track for my goals and the trip!! :D

    Set goals, and set them today! Also, don't forget to share your goals with someone else!

    Yep, I am a big believer in breaking down goals - this is my mantra:

    Inch by inch, it's a cinch
    Yard by yard, it's way too hard. :D

    That is my main problem and something I have been working on since I started school again full-time... I get so frustratedif I don't see results instantly, and it's been a huge challenge for me to break that, but I have been doing it.

    But that does sound attainable with the points. That's a great way to think about it though! Thank you for sharing that.

    That's awesome, Marlene! I bet you'll have an awesome time! You'll have to tell us all about it when you get back. That's soooooo neat! :D I can't wait to get my box for my cruise!

    Wow...quite a bit has changed on this site!!! I haven't been on for a week since we were on vacation in Florida. I'm too tired to review through all I've missed now. Maybe I'll take on that task over the weekend. I feel so out of the loop already.:eek:

    Anyway, Marlene, I'm going on the second wave of the cruise, so May 4-8th. I can't wait!! I know they confirmed our airline tickets, so I don't know when they'll send out the box. Probably closer in to the trip, right? It's 7 weeks from today!!! I can't wait to hear about Vienna!

    I am in my SS2 and working for San Francisco next year; of course Atlantis is even better!!! So far I have a little over 10,000 points. I can't wait to attend a PC vacation...sounds like fun. Have a great time...you have earned it.
