I mean growth in my work and my life, and definitely not in my waist line. I look at the new year like a challenge. How much of what I want to do can I accomplish this year. I usually write down each goal so that I can refer to it throughout the year. I’ve posted them around the house, I’ve written them down on index cards; one year I even laminated them. If I keep my goals reasonable, and give them a workable timeline, I usually get through most of them. There are the ones that never seem to get done, such as losing weight, but who`s kidding who here. I write it down and even I know it`s not likely to happen, at least not without a plan.
That`s the key, I need to plan. I have to break down the big goals into smaller goals and set time limits for them too. I can only eat an elephant one bite at a time. I will give myself a week to come up with this year`s goals. I plan on working on some big ones so I want to take it seriously. Wish me luck, and good luck with all your plans for 2012.
