>Doncha just love New Year’s? Everybody gets a second chance.

>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

  1. Read the Bible through again this year.
  2. Learn to play the piano by practicing at least 1/2 hour every day.
  3. Write every day.
  4. Keep up my blog.
  5. Get Christmas shopping done early again…this year was terrific.
  6. Start Christmas letter/cards earlier, say August.
  7. Work with daughter throughout the summer on reading and math.
  8. Continue checking out books on tape from the library and listening to them to and from work
  9. Start exercising regularly, even if it’s only 5 minutes a day, every day.
  10. Schedule regular scrapbooking weekends so I can stay caught up.
  11. Figure out how to get my home movies onto the computer so I can edit them and burn DVD’s of them.
