There's a distinction for me between setting goals and 'New Year Resolutions'.
Resolutions tend to be very general.
Some I've made in the past include...
- Be more patient
- Be more organized
- Lose weight
By the second week of January I'm usually completely frustrated with myself for being unable to live up to my resolutions.
Goals are more specific.
So, last year I decided to set a specific goal for myself. I decided that 2010 would be the year that I started a blog. In part, I wanted to have something that I did apart from my roles as mother and wife...something that tapped into my interests. And, I love to write. You can read a little more about why I started a blog in my very first post.
Now I'm thinking about what goal I want to set for myself in 2011. I'm not sure I've narrowed it down just yet. But I'm curious. What goals do you have? I'd love to glean some ideas from you!
By the way, I came across this little gem & as far as resolutions go, I think it's pretty awesome...
