My Goals for 2010

I'm not one to make resolutions. It seems that most of them are broken within the first 30 days and then I feel guilty, so, instead, I'm making goals....plans if you will for 2010. I decided to check the definition of Goal, Resolution and Plan to see what the differences would be.

GOAL: The purpose toward which an endeavor is directed. An objective.

  1. The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination.
  2. A resolving to do something.
  3. A course of action determined or decided on.
PLAN: a specific project or definite purpose: plans for the future.

Well, they almost---almost sound the same, but there is a difference. I still like Goals instead, so Goals it will be!

Anyway, in case you're curious, here they are:

1. Exercise at least twice a week
2. Lose 2 pounds a month (or more!) until 20 pound goal is reached
3. Create 2 layouts a month. (I wanted to make it a week, but I already know that it won't
work. No need to set myself up for failure so soon.
4. Submit layouts to Creating Keepsakes
5. Get on 2 design teams
6. Stop procrastinating!
7. Make better financial choices
8. Recyle, Reuse and Repurpose more this year
9. Be more patient with the kids
10. And apply Jesus's teachings to my life daily (that should be No. 1!)

What are your goals? I might (if time allows) create a layout today of these goals and hang it on my wall. If I see it every day perhaps I can stick to them.

Have a wonderful day, my friends!

I agree with you 100% about resolutions vs goals! I've set some goals for myself this year...ones that I can actually accomplish...with discipline! I went back and looked at all of your Christmas pictures and read about your family get-together. It looked like so much fun! I wish you a very Happy New Year and good luck with your goals!!!
