Whether you are a new reader or have been around since circa 2005, you are most likely aware of my obsession with goals. I like to make a daily goals list each morning (you may have heard of a "to-do list"?) I like to make a monthly goal list on the first of the month (read three books, go skydiving, etc) and it also appeases me to make a YEARLY goal list, aka...
(whoa, focal B&W made me look like I have two different colored legs!)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
No seriously, New Years is probably my favorite holiday of the year. Not because of the crazy parties and 48-hour hangovers (because let's all admit it, partying on New Years Eve is always totally overrated). But because of the goals! The challenges! The fresh start!
I know what you're thinking. "But Amy, why can't you just start your diet today? Why must you wait for January 1st?" And the answer is, because it's cool.
I just love the idea of a whole new YEAR. For success. Inspiration. Clean slates. Forgiveness. First chances. Mess-ups. Second chances.
This year, I'm gon' celebrate. With a week full of resolutions. That's right. Why should I stop at one resolution? I'm going to up my chances of success seven-fold. You know, in case I forget about the first six by January 2nd.
First, a little preface.
There are two types of goals that I will be addressing through my resolutions.
Broad goals will be written in black.
These are the types of goals & resolutions that are measurable only by the life changes they produce. Dreamin' big here, people.
Measurable goals will be written in red.
When psychologists write a treatment plan for a patient, we call these "objectives"... something we can use to tangibly measure progress.
The fun will last from December 26-January 1.
Join me, won't you ? :)
