I'm going to be honest with you, last year's goals did not go so well for me. Actually, a lot of last year didn't go so well for me. I really lost focus and motivation and self-esteem for a while. Lately though, I've had some great experiences. I'm feeling fired up and confident (or at least reckless enough to ignore the whole confidence thing) and making plans to more regularly recharge those aspects of my life.
This year I'm trying to narrow in on fewer goals so that I can (hopefully) focus on them more easily.
1. Finish editing my novel.
It's getting there. It is.
2. Quit something every Thursday.
Thanks to Donald Miller for this one.
3. Get a house and a dog.
4. Accomplish 3 smaller-scale goals each month.
This is where I intend to focus on hobbies, small projects, or details of my larger goals.
The primary purpose of this is to prevent what I quit last Thursday from resurging. No more starting new projects before I finish old ones.
I don't want to be someone who sets goals - I want to be someone who achieves them!
On this note, here are my goals for January.
1. Write and Run 31
2. Finish a needlework piece that I started a while back. I've got the perfect person to gift it to now! And finish the Christmas ornaments we're making for this past Christmas . . .
3. Get my new photo printer set up and finish printing & framing photos for home.
