This week each year is when I go into serious goal-making mode. Like Michelle mentioned in a previous post, I look at how much I've accomplished on the list I made last year, move some things I haven't to the next year, and add new goals I'd like to accomplish. I break these goals down into weight loss/fitness, other personal (including bucket list items), home improvement, and writing. Considering my holiday traveling didn't end until last night, I haven't created my lists yet. But I've been thinking about them. Here's a teaser to what will be appearing on them:
1. Weight Loss/Fitness -- Lose 30 pounds.
2. Other Personal -- Take swim lessons.
3. Home Improvement -- Get new driveway poured.
4. Writing -- Spend 8 hours a day working on writing, like I would at a regular day job. I know I have on some days, way less on others, so I want to start keeping track of it.
I'm a firm believer in the power of writing down goals helping them come to fruition, so I'll also challenge all of you to take some time this week, before the New Year's Ball drops Thursday night, to create your own goals lists for the first year of the new decade. Put some goals that are easier to achieve, and then some that really stretch you. How do you break down your goals? This is a great place to share some of the things you aim to accomplish in 2010 -- hint, hint. :)
