I’ve been debating on whether or not to even write a “New Years” post, but after reading about a million and five others, I thought, “I’ve got goals, why not share them?” Also I read this wonderful post from Pretty Providence (one of my newer faves). They speak directly to goal setting and how it should be SMART.
Too often, I am lulled into making these broad, vague statements because I somehow think they’re easier to stick too…and I’m wrong almost every time. If that’s your method, and it works for you, then you go for it! It doesn’t work for me though; as such, I’ve spent a little time thinking about some things I would really like to accomplish.
1. I am going to spend more time in the Word. (In SMART words: I am going to read my Bible three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening. I am by no means saying I don’t want to do this more often, but I’m starting with what I know I’ll do. The more I’ll read, the more I’ll want to read…that’s the real goal.)
2. I am going to get a job in my field. (This one is a little more difficult in SMART words: I can’t put a time frame on this because I don’t know God’s exact plan for me. I do know He has a job for me though…I’m just out here looking for it.)
3. I’m going to go through my closet (to sort, organize, and donate) three times this year, in April, August, and December.
I make plans and lists in my head all the time, but these are the ones I’m really focusing on right now. 2013 is going to be a big year for me, and I am so excited about sharing it here! Happy New Year, and here’s to a fabulous 2013!
P.S. In case you didn’t hear…let’s hang out.
