In 2010 I made a short list of goals that I wanted to achieve during the year. I've come to realize that I am terrible at completing goals. Even my own. I end up focusing on one, the one that is most plausible and forget about the rest.
A few examples:
"Read. A lot!"
I read a total of ten books this year. Eight of those were rereads. I tried to read three books that I gave up on halfway through due to complete boredom.
"Make more videos than I did in 2009"
I made four. That's pathetic. I get a green screen for Christmas and I make only four videos?!
You get the point. I did work really hard one of those goals though.
"Continue to lose weight."
I lost 33 pounds this year. (44 pounds total since I started losing weight in December 2009.) I call that an incredible achievement! My original goal was 170 pounds. I'm less than that now. (My new goal is 155. I think that's where I'll feel happiest.)
So this year, I am not setting goals. This year I am simply going to name the things I hope happen this year. Things that I am looking forward to, things that I would love to happen, but won't beat myself up if I don't accomplish.
Things that I'm excited for:
Reaching my goal weight!
(This is my only goal. I WILL do it. Less than 15 pounds to go!)
Reading new books and old favorites!
Possibly moving to Las Vegas!
New and old relationships!
A brand new year!
It's going to be wonderful! I am determined to make it so!
Happy New Year Everyone!
