My Goal List for 2013
Hi sweet friends! How are you all doing this lovely Friday? I’m very excited to share with you my goals for 2013. The goals I’m going to share with you today are areas that I want to grow in each area of my priorities, but are specific to the kitchen. I’m sure you don’t want to read all about how how I want to develop a routine for exercising 5 days a week. Therefore, I am going to keep my goals specific to what I mainly write about here at Simply My Kitchen.
Why do I think goal setting is important?
I believe that setting goals helps me have balance and direction for what I want to accomplish. It isn’t just a check in the box. It’s a developing progress to gain knowledge, wisdom, skills, and most important building meaningful relationships.
How often will I review my goals?
Weekly, worked well last year. This year I’m taking the same approach. Every week, on Sunday, I will look at what was accomplished, identify where I could improve or what clearly needs to be removed from the list.
What is my goal for you?
Today as you read my goals, I hope that it will inspire you to set goals for yourself. Goals that will help you accomplish everything you are about. If you want to read more about goal setting please read these resources: here and here.
Will I share my progress with you?
Absolutely! At the end of every month, I’ll give a recap of what we’ve been able to accomplish. I say “we” because my little family is just as important to helping me reach my goals.
