At any rate.
Monthly goals seemed to work much better for me in the past, because it was 30(ish) days to work on a goal, which was short enough to feel achievable, and long enough to work at building habits.
I do have some things that I want to improve on, and posting them publicly to The Internet seems to help hold me accountable. Probably in part because I hate the thought of having to admit I failed to The Internet.
All this to say, that I'm getting back to my monthly goals. And I'm kind of excited.
Here they are for January:
- Read my Bible at least 25 days
- Exercise at least 10 days (wimpy, I know, but gotta start somewhere!)
- Meal plan for 1 week
- Prepare at least 2 freezer meals
- Organize one area/problem spot
I'm kind of excited about getting back into my goals. I love feeling like I accomplished something, as well as being more intentional with my time. On one hand, when I had kids, I didn't feel like I had time to be doing this kind of stuff, but really, I need goals and organization now even more than I did before.
I'd love to hear from anybody who is working on goals as well - whether they're weekly, monthly, or for all of 2012. We could encourage each other and cheer each other on!
