The International Woman's Day theme for 2017 is.....
The secret to accomplishing what matters most to you is committing your goals to writing. This is important for at least five reasons.
Because it will force you to clarify what you want. Imagine setting out on a trip with no particular destination in mind. How do you pack? What roads do you take? How do you know when you have arrived? Instead, you start by picking a destination. The same is true with the milestones in your life. Writing down your goals forces you to select something specific and decide what you want.
Because it will motivate you to take action. Writing your goals down is only the beginning. Articulating your intention is important, but it is not enough. (This is where I disagree with Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret). You must execute on your goals. You have to take action. I have found that writing down my goals and reviewing them regularly provokes me to take the next most important action.
Because it will provide a filter for other opportunities. The more successful you become, the more you will be deluged with opportunities. In fact, these new opportunities can quickly become distractions that pull you off course. The only antidote I know of is to maintain a list of written goals by which to evaluate these new opportunities.
Because it will help you overcome resistance. Every meaningful intention, dream, or goal encounters resistance. From the moment you set a goal, you will begin to feel it. But if you focus on the resistance, it will only get stronger. The way to overcome it is to focus on the goal—the thing I want. Steven Pressfield’s book,Do the Work, is must-reading on this topic.
Because it will enable you to see—and celebrate—your progress. Life is hard. It is particularly difficult when you aren’t seeing progress. You feel like you are working yourself to death, going nowhere. But written goals are like mile-markers on a highway. They enable you to see how far you have come and how far you need to go. They also provide an opportunity for celebration when you attain them.

Becky’s House Domestic Violence Programs
In 1978, YWCA opened the first regional emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their families to address the unmet need in the community.
Later in January 1999, Dr. Barbara DeAngelis received a call from "Becky" on the Jeff and Jer radio show. Becky was trapped in an abusive relationship and was afraid for her life. She had three days to find shelter while her boyfriend was out of town — without a job, money or shelter of any kind. Within 24 hours, listeners raised $43,000 to help Becky and her son escape the abuse and begin a new life. Inspired by the outpouring of support from the community, YWCA renamed our domestic violence program in honor of Becky and constructed a new transitional housing facility for survivors facing similar situations.

10% of the proceeds from any new paddleboard or surfboard purchased- will be donated to YWCA of San Diego County and our Becky’s House® domestic violence programs.
Why we chose Becky's house:
I was a victim of Domestic violence.
But I was lucky to have a place to go to when I was ready to leave.
I know that if my daughter and I couldn't have moved into my parents house- I would have either never left, or took twice as long to leave.
Even when you have a place to go, it is very scary.
But having no place to go is devastating.
Today, YWCA is one of the largest providers of domestic violence services in San Diego County, and one of the only resources for male victims. Their 30-day emergency shelter is also the only facility in the region that accepts clients at all hours of the day and night.
Another reason is we also listened to
the Jeff and Jer radio show back in 1999.
The Becky story really impacted both of us.
