Goals. I'm not big on them.
However, I'm kind of at a place where I need them. It's funny because one would think goals would be created when you have a vision and know exactly what you want. For me, my goal-making was birthed out of not really being sure...about anything. I think this path may be possible....these steps could be successful....Go
d might want this for me...but I'm not positive. Might as well pursue one of them than sit around and wonder.
It has been a lot of fun setting my goals and laying out plans to meet them. For example I set Goal A and Goal B. Under each goal, I listed three or so things of what I think those goals require of me long-term, i.e. how I plan to meet that goal.
Now, at the beginning of each week, I am laying out the specific actions for me to make steps toward reach
ing my goals. Amazing, I know. I will be writing a self-help book, Realize Your Dreams - See Your Success - Now! Coming to stores soon.
So anyways, when I make these weekly goal-meeting plans, I'm writing it all down in my journal. I love my journal. I love the intimate writing experience between me and God. Ever since my first prayer journal (Precious Moments) and first diary (Garfield - I know, right?), I've loved the secrecy of a private thought-space. So naturally, my journal stays closed. It looks cuter this way. Unfortunately, I'm finding that when I write down things and then hide them with the cute but opaque covers of my journal, I tend to forget all the plans and goals I had.
So, while it is driving my slight ocd crazy, I'm leaving my journal out and open most of the time. The accessibility has really worked so far - both days I've done it. Ha.
I have some house-wifely duties I must get done now....and no, those weren't exactly on the goal list.
