I have written and kept journals for well over ten years, all documenting various experiences, daily occurrences, irritations and annoyances. In the hope that one day my grand children will be able to look back and see what I ate for breakfast? No.. so that I can learn from my mistakes, see what has or hasn’t worked, plus it’s pretty therapeutic too!
It’s proven that people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them, whether fitness,travel, career or personal goals, and so last Thursday, as we were preparing for the start of the Easter break, when the office recapped on it’s first quarter, it encouraged me to start evaluating my first quarter and began to make a mental list of S.M.A.R.T goals and plans for the next year. I haven’t done it since I started blogging, but that was one of many boxes ticked from 2010!! I’ve made my new list and will share it whether successful or not in 3 months! I got home excited for the long weekend and with these words ringing in my ears: What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail…?
It’s a new month, a new quarter, write down your goals… because “If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, you are right on both counts.” – Henry Ford.
S.M.A.R.T – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time measurable..Habakkuk 2:2 : Write the vision, and make it plain…
