All over Facebook I'm seeing people who are not setting goals. They are choosing to do so for various reasons. DON'T BE ONE OF THEM!
I personally LOVE setting goals. Call me a crazy psycho nerd, but I think setting and reaching goals is so fun!
This past year has been the first time I have learned what really makes goal setting really work for me. You've got to figure out for you what works. Blog about your goals, print them off in a cute font and stick it on your wall, buy a super cute goals journal to write in, create an excel sheet, buy a sticker chart, whatever works for you!
Then, start small. I am terrible at long term goals, but I do set monthly goals every single month. 30 days seems much more doable then trying to do something for 365 days, can I get an Amen? Here are some of my favorite goals I set this past year. Most of my goals change every month, lots of them stick, some of them don't.
-Write at least 1 handwritten letter a week.
-Pray every morning for 3 minutes.
-Keep a tender mercies journal.
-Do something fun with friends at least once a week.
-Call someone in my family every week.
-Watch one Disney movie a month.
-Take a relaxing bath before school.
-Drink hot chocolate more.
-Read from the New Testament every day.
Be a goal setter! It's okay to set simple goals. Choose goals that will make you happy. DO more things that will make you happy.
Go party like a rockstar.
