Every New Years is when most people dust off their notebooks with last years goals, only to make new goals that they have no intentions of following through on. We need to not think of them as New Years resolutions, but as yearly personal performance appraisals.
My two year performance appraisal at work is 2 months away. Last year I was given 5 goals. So far I have accomplished 2 of them, another 2 are a work-in-progress and the last one is studying for a test that I need to take.
All of my goals are attainable. My supervisor has asked for a status update on my goals, and I have given it to her. She wants me to success in my annual goals, just as much as I do.
If we treated our life goals - or resolutions - like we do our professional performance appraisals, maybe we would be more apt to take them seriously. Today my husband and I decided to answer 11 questions related to our goals that we are making for ourselves regarding health and fitness. We need to learn to set attainable goals that we can gauge when the time comes to evaluate where we are at in reaching our goals within our set time frame, much like the annual performance appraisal.

I plan to reevaluate my goals every three months, and of course change them as needed. One thing Dustin said for one of his answers was that he wants to be a good role model for our son. It made my heart really happy to read that. The fact that both of us have pretty similar goals, but that we also have another life to think about when setting our goals. We both want to set a great example for Mark, and even though he is not here yet, it is never too early to start practicing.
What kind of goals do you have?
