As we sit here in the dead of winter’s stillness, it is this time that I often consider more in depth the goals I had planned for myself. We are now three weeks into the new year, and it gives some breathing space for those lofty ideas that seemed so wonderful during the holiday season. This is either the time that those goals tend to fall to pieces, or that they become solidified.
One goal is nearly complete, and I had given myself until mid year to get there. That one makes me quite happy. Another one has still been untouched, but if I leave it for too long, I will miss my timeline goal. It gives me a feeling of warning, so I best get to working on it as well. Yet another goal has been in progress, and I am happy to be consistently plugging away at it. I have a wonderful friend who encourages me, pushes me even, in the very best way. I know I will be better for it, and for that I am very grateful.
I find that setting goals does help me initially. Reviewing those goals and making plans helps me take them to completion. I have taken steps and looked into workshops that I plan to take, and I have registered for classes for the fun goals that are for my personal development and enjoyment.
If you set yourself goals or ‘resolutions’, where are you at this three week mark? Are you going strong or have you decided it was a bad idea? Will you modify yours or slog through it?
