Makin' Goals 2012

For the past three years, we've posted our goals for the new year.  Sometimes silly, sometimes serious.  It's that whole "New Year, New You" attitude.  Cheesy, I know.  But I love it!  Notice I said goals, not resolutions.  Resolutions are temporary.  Easily forgotten.  Once broken, they're abandoned.  Goals are different.  Goals are long term.  They require vision.  And once we fail, so what?  We pick up and try again tomorrow.

So this year, let's do something different.  We're making goals.  Life changing, broken into steps, try again tomorrow goals.  And we can do it... together!  The first week of January, we're going to post our goals and work through them in 2012.  Come back Jan 3rd to post your goals and blog hop with us.  Then return each month as we post our progress.  Let's work toward a "New Year, New You" in 2012.

So put your thinking caps on and come back here on Jan 3rd to link up with us.  Here's the details:

Carnival Information

Tips for Making Goals
1. Make your goals achievable. Start with something small that you can change this month, then another for next month. Don't write down goals that are so daunting you don't even attempt them.

2. Make goals that you are willing to commit to. If you have no interest in sprouting seeds, leave that for another time. This is not the time to make goals simply to impress other bloggers.

3. Develop a loose timeline for achieving some or all of your goals. Do you want to achieve one a month or just incorporate all within the first 6 months? 

4. Share these goals with others. Here's where the accountability of blogging comes in. You're sharing with all of us the changes that you are purposing to make in your life. Additionally share with someone in your real life. Ask them to keep you accountable as well.

5. Understand that these goals are a work in progress. Habits are not changed overnight. These goals are meant to be working goals, working toward a better you in 2011.

You ready to get started???
