What Are Your Goals for the New Year?

It’s New Year’s Day. Have you set any goals?

I’m not much for New Year’s Resolutions, as such. I prefer to have goals to try to meet, often extensions of ones I’ve been working on for a long time.

The trouble with resolutions is that too many people are really not ready to follow through with them. I consider this a good time of year to think over goals and figuring out how to improve my efforts.

Making big changes all at once is so much harder than taking things step by step. Set a goal that you can work with for a long time. Improve the things you aren’t quite doing as well as you’d like to be. But remember that most resolutions aren’t followed through on for very long, and keep things realistic.
