Goals are not resolutions,or about life changes. Goals, in my opinion, are about things we strive to achieve.
Do you set goals for certain things? I do. Here are a few of the things I set goals for:
I set an annual goal of reading a minimum of 24 books. Last year I only read 17………..poor. I’ve had this same goal for a few years. Most I hit it, some I go over,and then alas, some I miss.
I have a goal for managing my time. I know this sounds silly, but as a stay at home mom my time from 8-2:45 is mine, I can blow it, or make it productive. Because I know how addicting the computer is, I have to have limits. No one knows these but me. If I didn’t have them the housework, laundry , bill paying, shopping and cooking wouldn’t get done!
I set goals for saving money………now this one is more challenging than I’d like to share. I like to believe that I(we) save money each year for major purchases and vacations. This saving is in addition to the savings we have. Money………….no joke it can be the root of all evil…………we tread lightly
I NEED a goal for exercising, because I’m just lousy at it! I was walking with my hubs, but things have been less regular since the new year.
Goals are good things, I think. When we reach one, big or small…….we have small victories. When I was first home with my newborn twins the simplest thing like a shower was my daily goal….and when accomplished……….a real victory!!
What small goals and victories are you celebrating these days?
