I know it that time of years when everybody makes resolutions. And I too started to make a list. (Yes Lynn, a list) My sister Lynn is the queen of lists! I have always been a by the seat of my pants kinda girl and it has worked out for me so far in life, but I want more. So instead of resolutions, I decided that this is going to be a year of goals. Resolutions have no plan...no guide on how to get to the resolution, but goals on the otherhand have steps. If you sit down and write a plan on how to get to your goal it will be much clearer on how to get there. So here are some of my goals for 2008:
1. To get my art published in Somerset Studio or some other creative magazine.
2. To be more active in my Yahoo Groups
3. To buy a house.
4. To purge items that I no longer use but have held onto for years that are stuffed in boxes!
5. To be paperless in my home office by the end of 2008.
Believe me, that last one is a doozie! I am so tired of filing. It seems that I always end up with piles and piles of paper waiting to be filed. Magazine articles that I rip out to save, receipts, bank statements. Its all going to be scanned and then shredded! I have a busy year ahead of me, but I am looking forward to it. I have already started on my goals during the last week. No need to wait till New Years Day to start! I have added a countdown and a to do list for my #1 Goal. You can watch my progress if anybody is interested. I am learning all kinds of cool things for my blog.
So go ahead, make goals instead of resolutions. It is going to be a GREAT year!
