I do this every year as the new year begins. I started it in 2008 with 8 goals, and now I am up to 11 goals in 2011. It isn’t hard to figure out how I get the number, but all I know as I age, I will have more and more goals to complete!
This year the mix includes some from last year that I didn’t quite make. It has a good mix of personal, professional and faith related goals. I encourage you to make your own list.
In case you need more reasoning to make goals versus resolutions, read this article. The reason I publicly post them is because it holds me more accountable – in all areas of my life. That is just how I operate best.
Enjoy my list. I hope if anything, it encourages you to create your own.
