Goals

I stumbled across a blog today that I really liked the idea of, and so I wanted to try it out for myself.

I'm not much of a goal setter. This is mostly because of two things: 1. I accomplished the singular goal that I created for myself sometime around third grade; and, 2. I have no sense of comprehending the word deadline.

Since most goals usually come with deadlines, I have a tendency to shy away from them. There is simply too much disappointment for everyone involved when deadlines are missed. For myself. For those rooting for me. I'm sure just about everyone who ever looks at this blog has experienced this - with me - at one time or another (or is currently experiencing this wondering why in the ...I'm blogging and not working on a) moving or b) stats...which by the way, neither are completed...)

quickly changing the subject

The point is - There are more things that I want to accomplish in my life. There are some things that I am determined to do. And I think they deserve recognition. After all, aren't the goals written down the ones more likely to be accomplished?

There are so many, though.

I typed out a list of 100+ things. Some may take my whole lifetime, others, I could probably sit down and get them done tomorrow. I think that I will continue to add as I go. And cross off the ones that I actually accomplish - and of course, I will blog about the whole thing. Because that's how I do.

  1. First, we are soooo getting a henna tattoo the week I get home! Second, when it finally warms up we are going skinny dipping (something I'm terrified of as well, but will help with your other love yourself goal). Third when I get married I would love love love for you to make my invitations (ha, that's kind of selfish). And I wish you could convert me to hunger games but that love was discovered a year and a half ago with the first book. But at least I can help with 3 of your goals!

  2. Ok, I said I wasn't going to do this anymore, but WHY—for the love of all that's holy—is stats #74? Shouldn't it be #1, since it's a prerequisite to so many of your other goals?

    In other news, you probably could have gotten a lesson done in the time it took you to write down your goals ;)
