We Are Our Father's Children

Do you remember growing up that every New Year's Day - or the nearest Sunday - we would all sit down and make goals?  Sometimes Dad would write them on the chalkboard.  Sometimes we would write them out on our own and help our younger siblings.  I can remember writing on Keira's goal list one year, "Get rid of warts!".  (She had warty fingers.  Seriously.)

I have read and heard repeatedly that you are more likely to keep a goal if you share and have to give updates on said goals.  So, here's the challenge:  Please share up to 3 goals that you are striving for this year.

Some ideas for goal success are;  1) Be specific.  If you want to lose weight make a specific attainable goal (5 to 10 lbs) so if you exceed it you are happy(ier) about the results.  2) Be accountable.  Find a buddy (i.e. sister!) to check in with on a scheduled/regular basis.  3) Talk about what is working and what isn't and make sub-goals to reach main goal.
