Page 366 of 366- Goals versus Resolutions

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty


Last year I wrote a blog about New Years Resolutions and how do not believe in them. For the past 5 years, I have been setting mini goals. I have to say, in 2012 I wrote down every single goal I wanted to accomplish and I did it..and maybe then some. I have always been a goal setter and figured trying new things is the way to go in small doses.

In my blog post last year titled "12 in 12!," I came up with goal inspirations mainly not for myself, but for my readers. This is what I accomplished on my 2012 Punch List:

- Experienced Zumba, Kickboxing, & Weight Training

- Attended more ( 3 extra) educational classes than I would in the past

Bought a bicycle and biked on the Farmington Valley Greenway weekly

-Woke up at 5am to get a head start on the day 3-4 days per week

-Added bright colors to my wardrobe ( hot pink, yellow)

-Prepared one new dish a month

-Tried one new restaurant a month

-Read one new book a month

-Gave personalized gifts to friends & family


Setting mini goals versus resolutions will make life interesting & purposeful all year-long. Resolutions normally fade away after a few weeks to a month. Goals that are attainable are fun and keep life flavorful for you and the ones around you.

I will tell you one goal I have for 2013, and that is to experience parasailing! - (it's already booked for January!) What goals do you want to set to make your life exciting in 2013?

Happy 2013!

I always thought the resolutions were pretty much small goals--since people hardly ever stick to them anyway. Why is it that we can meet goals but not stick to resolutions?

Normally folks make one resolution they blurt out leading up to the days of the ball drop. Goals are written down and small enough to be attainable..and fun! I hear resolutions that are boring. Goals are fun and keep life interesting!
