California has finally dragged it's lagging butt into 2012, so Happy New Year to all my Westerners!
Last year, I was really hoping to make a difference in my life, so for the first time in maybe ever, I made resolutions. This year I'm dumping the word resolution in favour of "goal". Why? Resolution is "a firm decision". If you make your mind up to do something, that's a resolution. No wonder New Year's resolutions don't make it all through the year. A resolution is a thought, not an action.
Goal on the other hand, is about the end point. By thinking in goals, I automatically change how I go about what I'm doing. And a goal, unlike a resolution, tends to be intrisically measurable.
So, here are my goals for 2012, Year of the Dragon. I'll be back later in the week to get into the details of each of them.
1. Save more
2. Study more
3. Write more
4. Read less
5. Be a better bipolar
What about you? What would you like to acheive in 2012.
