In my opinion, today is the best day of 2012. It’s the first Monday of a new month of a new year. What better time is there for new beginnings, a time to start new projects, or to begin to make your dreams come true?
So, do you have goals for this year? Resolutions? What’s the difference? It’s actually pretty simple. A resolution is usually a vague promise that you’ll do something you should be doing anyway – lose weight, stop smoking, spend less, etc. A goal is a promise to yourself that can be short or long-term, with a time limit and a definite end result, ie. “I will save $1000 this year,” or “I will exercise three times a week.”
I don’t usually make resolutions, although the losing weight thing and getting healthier would be right up there if I did. But I do have goals.
I’m not going to get specific here, but I will be making a list and a plan for achieving my goals. By the end of 2012, I plan to: weigh less, be more fit, be financially better off, and be happier in both my writing and personal life.
