I’m not the person to make New Year resolutions. I have seen people do it and never keep them. I’m not sure if it’s for a lack of commitment to self or if it’s just because they are doing it out of tradition. However, I am a very goal oriented person. At least, I like to think of myself this way. 🙂 If I make a goal and keep it before me, I will accomplish it.
What I decided to do for the year of 2014 is decide a few goals that I can commit to accomplishing for myself.
My list was pretty long. I typed it up and sent it to myself via email. Some of the things on my list were pretty private, but there are a few that I don’t mind sharing. I wanted them to be measurable goals. By doing this I eliminate general statements. I am very specific with them and I plan to hold myself to them.
My 2014 Goals

Have you committed to completing any goals for yourself? If you don’t mind sharing, what are they?
