It’s time to get a plan for this new year. Is there something you really want to accomplish? Something that has been on your to do list for a long time but is always just out of reach? This year could be the year you accomplish that goal.
The best way to reach your goals is to have a good plan for getting a little done each day, week and month. So you are slowly but surely making progress towards your goal. You also need to be realistic on how much time you have and what you can accomplish in the time you have.
By having a plan you know where you are going and how you will likely get there. That doesn’t mean there won’t be set backs and delays but at least you will a plan. A steady path to follow and get back on when life throws a curve at you.
Last year, I made too many goals that I just didn’t have time for. Trying to do a little on so many goals just bogged me down and I didn’t get as many accomplished last year. So this year, I made a change and limited the amount of goals I set for myself. I tried to be a little more realistic on what I could get done.
Here’s the goals I hope to accomplish in 2014
Bible and Prayer time each day
Sleep 7-8 hours a day

Exercise regularly (4-5 times each week)
Lose 20 pounds
