Happy New Year my friends!!
Well, with the beginning of a new year, I am working hard to stay on track with my writing and part of that is with blogging. And yet, it isn’t a resolution.
Let me explain. I don’t believe in resolutions. For reals (go read, I’ll wait).
I believe in goals and action. Period.
Now, does this mean I am always great and meet every goal. Not so much. But I have a lot more success because I come up with plans. Resolution just implies something that will fall by the wayside in a few days. Heck, even if you make it a few weeks (which I NEVER have in my life), you are still not setting yourself up for success.
Take my weight loss for instance. During 2011, I lost 60 pounds. I haven’t blogged about it yet (it’s come, I promise!), but I did it. And let me tell you, success breeds momentum.
So, what are your goals for next year and how will you get there?
Here’s a few of mine:
- Blog at least 1 time a week
- Have new book outlined (completely) by June
- Improve running (look for a MomFit post with the specifics)
- Be more organized around the house (look for a post)
- Cook more (you know what I’m going to say here…)
- Be more patient with my ADHD kiddos
Here’s a few people who agree with me regarding goals vs. resolutions:
