This will probably be the shortest “New Year’s Post” I’ve ever written but I’ve gotten kind of sick of all the “New Year Resolution” and “Set New Goals” kind of posts. Yes I know – I wrote one myself a week or so ago (hey, those kinds of posts are almost obligatory this time of year!).
However, if you’re anything like me, you find you spend way too much time thinking and planning about your goals instead of actually working on them. I even found myself buying some “special” goal-setting paper this past week!
Forget that! Forget about following a special goal formula or using special goal-setting paper or journal. Quit spending so much time on designing your goals and start spending most, if not all, of your time working on them.
Someone once said, “Life is not practice.” That’s right. We don’t get a chance to live life over.
So don’t worry if you don’t have a neat list of goals for 2012 – all categorized by area of your life, cross referenced with your family goals, and put in order of date due.
It’s the start of a new year. Just pick a direction and go! If things change, it’s much easier to change direction if you’re already in motion that it is to rearrange your card catalog of goal cards.
Like Nike says, “Just do it!”
