Confession

I have a confession to make…… I had pretty big aspirations for myself when I wrote “50 Things To Do This Year”  I am referring to a post I had written back in May 2013.

Lets see how I did?

I actually was planning (today) to write a post about how I had failed at not meeting my goals but after going over this list I realize that I really didn’t do that bad and the year is not over yet.  And really,  I know that I have accomplished quite a bit in the last half of this year.  Yes, I do have big ambitions and sometimes I think I can do way more than is really possible but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.   I realize that a lot of what I had on this list is now a part of me and a part of my lifestyle.  In fact, other things not on this list also got accomplished which is pretty awesome .  It is interesting to see how priorities change over time.

Is it better to plan for too many things and to have high expectations for yourself or to err on the side of lower expectations?  I love working on goals with my friends and it is getting to be that time again when we start working on our Vision Boards for the New Year.   I think I am going to use the SMART Goal technique for my next list;  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.  I am hoping this will help me with some of my big goals coming up and really help me to focus on what is truly  important.

What about you?  How did you do with your goals this year?  I would love to hear from you. Please add your comments below.
