>I’ve been talking a lot about goals and goal-setting with my critique partner lately.
Goals are a moving target. What sounds right today may be replaced with newer, better, or redirected goals tomorrow.
I believe this is not copping out. In fact, this is the reality of goal setting and of life for that matter. Goals are promises we make to ourselves. You take a look at the situation today, and you set your mind in a direction you want to go. Tomorrow brings something better into the picture. And you roll with it.
I decided to make the two into one; Here is my list of the things I promise myself this year.
2006 New Year’s Resolutions/Promises to Myself
- Read the Bible through again this year.
- Learn to play the piano by practicing at least 1/2 hour every day.
- Write every day.
- Keep up my blog.
- Get Christmas shopping done early again…this year was terrific.
- Start Christmas letter/cards earlier, say August.
- Work with daughter throughout the summer on reading and math.
- Continue checking out books on tape from the library and listening to them to and from work
- Start exercising regularly, even if it’s only 5 minutes a day, every day.
- Schedule regular scrapbooking weekends so I can stay caught up.
- Figure out how to get my home movies onto the computer so I can edit them and burn DVD’s of them.
