New Year’s goals

Some people make New Year’s resolutions. I use the end of December/start of January as a time for reflection. How did the year go? What great things happened? What do I want to accomplish in the new year? Then I set goals for the upcoming year. I prefer goals to resolutions; you can’t “break” them in the first few days. I create goals for all areas of my life… spiritual, family, physical, professional, home, friends, and financial. A few years ago, I added a new category called “rest, rejuvenate, & celebrate” to help in that area, too. Setting goals helps me focus on what’s important. Just like I do in lesson plans!
 
Here’s a sample of my goals for 2010:
Friends:
1. Encourage them.
2. Write notes of affirmation.
3. Spend time with my circle of friends.
 
Rest/Rejuvenate/Celebrate:
1. White space in each day, week, and month.
2. Enjoy what I’ve been given.
3. Travel with Tom as we can.
4. Positive thinking creates positive energy.
I keep my goals in a notebook and add photos/ magazine pictures to help me visualize them. Periodically, I review them to see how I’m doing. I believe that when we can picture things, we are apt to do them and do them consistently. 
 
What are your goals or new year’s plans for 2010? I hope you’ve created some and strive to meet them daily – share them in the comments section.
Happy New Year to you all!
