Goals, Not Resolutions

personal goals 2007
{click on image to see full size}

Last year I created this goal list for 2006 and in 2005 I wrote this list of 50 things to do before age 30. I'm a list maker. These are not resolutions. These are goals I've set for myself today for the upcoming year. As time passes and experiences allow, I love to accomplish things on these lists but I know that nothing is for certain. By the middle of the year I may not have the same goals for myself or they may be altered for one reason or another. They may even be ignored completely. I don't hold this against myself because that is part of growing up and is the beauty of evolving goals and dreams. It's such a pleasure looking back on past lists to see what has been accomplished and what I should keep on my new list for the new year. It is an exciting time for reflection and dreaming. I'm wishing you big dreams and much success in this new year!

i love the idea of setting goals and not resolutions...i cring just writing that word because i associate it with failure-things i think i'm going to do and then never get to...or change my mind...or don't have the will to continue. I like goals, goals allow for adaptation. well, happy new year and good luck/have fun in all your endeavors.
