I Like Goals Better….


I refuse to make New Years Resolutions this year; I have found that I very rarely follow through with

Happy New Year 2013 (1/52)

them. I usually invest money I should not into sometimes unreasonable and often times way to general long-term resolutions that sound great, but are way to easy to blow off or in my case get side tracked away from. I think if we need to make a resolution to change something, we really need to give ourselves well thought out planned short term goals that are more attainable and for me something I do not burn myself out on within the first month. 🙂 I seem to get bored quickly; immediate gratification is hard for me to push-off. 😉

So some things I would like to learn about would be; my camera,hiking, camping, healthy living, preparedness, scriptures, weight lifting/toning, crocheting and a new language. I am not going to dwell way to much on order, but I am going to commit myself to working through at least one book, DVD, website or project for each one.

I would also like to work on those ever so typical challenges such as; weight loss, education and being a better person. I am hoping the things I want to learn about will help with those challenges in some form or another. For me the larger challenges are going to be do-able through making smaller attainable goals that I can stick with and see results from, before the end of 2013 or 2014. 🙂

Happy New Year everyone; I wish you all the best. 🙂

      Thanks so much and I was happy to add your blog. 🙂 I could totally relate to your interpretation of the differences between Resolutions and Goals; there is a difference. I enjoyed your post!
