Page & Paragraph
I don't make resolutions for the New Year. Instead, I make a list of goals. I've done this for more than twenty years and the results cannot be denied. I am more productive when I have that list in front of me. When I lose my motivation or direction, I can refer to that list to get back on track.
I give myself one month from Christmas to make a new list and post it on the fridge. This gives me eleven months to accomplish a few goals. I rarely get everything done, but I do accomplish more with it than without.
Over the years, I've noticed that I wrote down a few things repeatedly. I am happy to say that I either solved the problem or got over it. Either way, those items are no longer on my lists. Yes, I still weigh too much, but I don't have any credit card debt. You win some, you lose some.
What are your goals for 2011? You don't have to stop there either. Make a list for the next five years or six months. It's your list, make it for whatever time frame you want.
