I was at a workshop today with some colleagues and we got on the discussion of New Years resolutions and goals. A blogging acquaintance recently posted her 5 "resolution goals" and a few people at the workshop stated having various goals for 2012. One girl even said she had TWELVE goals for the year... TWELVE?!?! I didn't ask but maybe she has one for each month.. I don't know..
But it got me thinking. Maybe I should make some actual goals for the year...
Goal #1 - Make some goals
Clearly I'm not very good at this so instead I'm just going to list what I see happening this year and over the next month or so I will try to develop more concrete goals.
