We always think about New Years as a time to set goals. And there's nothing wrong with this.
My only question - Why wait?
Looking at a calendar, I see we have roughly 50 days left in 2007. 50 days! I can accomplish quite a bit in 50 days.
Sit down today and make a list of five goals you would like complete in the next 50 days. Make them reachable. Make them realistic! And make them fun!
How about one of those home projects you've been putting off for the last ten years? Put it on the list. Seriously, how much time will it really take to get done. Too long? Then make your goal to begin work on it.
Not ready to commit to eating like a monk for the next 50 days? Then how about exercising 4 times each week. Make a chart and keep track of it!
How about Christmas (or Holiday) shopping done in the next two weeks? List out today who you need gifts for and what and then get shopping!
Been pouring over a new book idea in your mind? Make your goal to get those ideas down on paper (or computer as in my case). This doesn't mean you have to have a completed first draft done by December 31st. Or maybe you want that to be your goal. The good news is that you can decide. You can pick today and get started!
There's nothing like accomplishing goals to make you feel great about yourself!
So what are your goals?
