I always enjoy taking time in late December/early January to think about the year ahead.  What are my goals for the year?  How do I break those goals down and take steps day by day, week by week, and month by month so that I can see those goals accomplished by the end of the year?  Even though it takes a little while, it is worth it for me to take that time to think, write, and decide.

My list of goals are grouped into three different categories: personal, home (family), and work.  Once I have a realistic listing of 5-6 goals for each group, I decide on specific deadlines for each one.  Then, I print my list out and keep it in my journal.  At the end of each month, I take a couple of minutes to read through the list again to see what I have accomplished – I love checking things off! 🙂 – as well as see if I am on track to accomplish those goals that are more long-term in nature.

One of my personal goals for 2010 is to continue to memorize Scripture, so I have updated that SK webpage and will attempt to list each month’s passage.

Have you taken the time to list your goals for 2010?  If not, I would encourage you to do so!

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
