A new year is here. Fresh year, new chapter, so many adventures to take. Time to begin. We don’t know what the year will bring, but it’s up to us how we move forward, what mood we move forward with, and deciding what goals we want to achieve, both short-term and long term.
One of my goals is to visit 52 different parks this year, and I know that’s a doable goal. That’s other part of goal-setting is making goals that have a chance to succeed. That doesn’t mean they should all be easy, we do need to reach somewhat. But a mix of goals is always good and it helps to motivate and be able to move on to the next goal we have set.
Mr. Squirrel just walked across the fence in front of my window. It’s a sunny day and I expect he’s other gathering some stores to carry him through. Planning is an important of making progress for humans as well. And be it photography or writing, having a list of goals helps to keep one rooted to progress. It helps to redefine periodically if we have that written list.
This weekend I think I’ll plan those 52 park adventures, and by year end I’ll see how well I’ve done. I’ll revisit my list every three months or so to keep me grounded on moving forward, but whether I hit 10 or 52, it’s all about progress. Do you have your goals set for 2019?
Happy New Year, everyone!
