A to Z meme. This week's letter is "G."
Yep - that's FIVE years.But that's not it. I've also been setting annual goals here since the beginning of 2009. (here's a link to my first one way back then) And I belong to two different accountability yahoo groups where I post weekly goals - one for several years, and the other for about one year. AND, more often than not, I send an email to a VERY dear friend with my daily goals.
|She knows EVERYTHING I do, and plan to do. :)|
And, finally, I'm beginning to wonder if it's getting a bit obsessive (especially since, for the last several month, maybe longer, I haven't been so good at meeting those goals).
Don't get me wrong. Goals are good to have. For someone with my personality especially, knowing where you wanna be later is key to actually arriving there some time near when you want. But if you are too rigid in your goal-setting or goal-focusing, you can ignore God's voice in your moments. And that is NEVER a good idea.
So, I'm going to slacken off a bit on my goal-setting. And I'm starting with the easiest (for me, anyway) - the monthly ones. Before this post goes live, I will have deleted my goals list on my sidebar, and I won't be doing a goals/progress post monthly as I have been for four years - at least until further notice. Not sure I'm ready to give up the weekly goals (and the daily email has saved me MANY a time from forgetting what I have to do on a particular day), but the monthly thing is a start.
So, I guess we'll see how this goes.
Do you set goals for yourself regularly?
