Ok, so I’m being a copycat. I recently read and subscribed to a new blog Now the concept this young lady (whose thought process actually reminds me of my own!) has come up with is that she’s going to blog for the next 365 days and accomplish goals along the way. Some small to us, but big to her (and I completely understand that). Her ultimate goal is to better herself in 365 days and track her progress through blogging. So, now I’m going to play copycat and tweak this for myself. Now, I may even make a new blog (that will total 3) just for this challenge. The only thing is that she can blog everyday of the 365, I don’t think I can… Now, I must think of several goals: big, little, long-term, short-term…. None the less goals. That can be accomplished and are realistic goals… However crazy they may seem to you, it’s going to be things I know I need to accomplish within the next 365 days. I’m not even going to start on the new year or anything like that nope I’m going to start TOMORROW! Now, I’m going to make a list of…… 4 goals per month to accomplish. so that’s what umm 48 goals in a year? I probably won’t be able to think of all 48 right here and now but I’m sure I’ll come up with a list within this timeframe. Every month I’m going to pick 4 of the goals on my list to accomplish that month. The hardest part for me is going to be being honest. Being honest about my goals. Being honest about accomplishing them. And, being honest about why I didn’t accomplish them. I hate feeling defeated and I hate putting certain things about me out there… So, the ones that are just to personal for me share I’ll probably categorize as “too personal” or something along those lines. Anywho, here goes the start of my list and this is just off the top of my head.

  1. Get Jazz in a Head Start Program

  42. Take advice when given (whether it was asked or not)
  43. Make cover letter, resume, references and salary history
  44. Join a church

Ok, so only 3 more to go… That wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be… Now some of these things once I start I’ll just have to continue with them outside of the 30-day timeframe to complete them. So, that means some months I’ll have more things to accomplish than others. And, how will I choose which 4 to do per month? In order of importance. Some just go with others so it’s obvious which will have to be done together or back to back. Now,  I HAVE to sit and think what 4 need to be accomplished this month. I’m already short 4 days so let me chose wisely… GOOD LUCK TO ME!
