Setting goals

I blog fairly often about setting goals and how it helps me accomplish what I want to. I don’t get overly upset if I don’t meet all the goals but do try to accomplish as many as I can. In late August, I decided what I wanted to finish by the end of the year, wrote it all down and started working on the list. I didn’t finish everything but I added some additional items and was happy with my progress. And yes, I love my lists 🙂

One thought on “Setting goals

    Wow! You had a very productive year.

    I’m a list maker too and spent some time this morning going through my 2015 list. I was pleasantly surprised at just how many items I crossed off as completed. I’ve started my 2016 list.

    Like you I don’t get too worked up when I don’t check off everything on a list. But it’s fulfilling to see what I’ve accomplished.

    Happy New Year!
