It is Jan. 26th, 2013. I turned a year older this week, and today I am reflecting on the concept of a New Year laid out before me….to be discovered, lived, etc…..
What will it take to make 2013 a “successful” year?
First of all, I have to define what a successful year would be – which means I need to set some goals. In order to set goals, I need to identify my values. What are my priorities? my strenghts? my weaknesses? my ambitions? my fears? my DREAMS?
That’s a lot to contemplate. I fear failure, so setting goals is a bit intimidating! Perhaps I should just “do my best” every day ….. would that be sufficient to make 2013 successful? Likely not.
I will begin this somewhat overwhelming task of setting goals by writing out some of my key Values:
Integrity, Peace, Family & Friends, Honoring God & all of His Creation…… there are more, but I am attempting to keep this concise.
