Goals must be measurable.
In other words you have to be able to quantify the way in which the goal will be met. For example, instead of saying I want to become a better cook say I will improve my cooking by trying a new recipe each week. That way you can measure your progress.
Your goal should have times and dates when applicable.
For example, I will build the new fence by such and such a date. This way you’ll be more likely to reach the goal if you set a time limit to accomplish the work by. Even if you don’t make it you’ll probably get closer than without one.
Your goal should be realistic and attainable.
Saying I will loose 15 lbs in a month just isn’t attainable. So just make sure that whatever you are setting out to do it’s being honest and realistic. The last thing you want to do is set yourself up for failure! Be sure to set goals that will build you up and help you see all that your accomplishing.
And Now My Goals for January.
1. Revise and Publish my School of Mary Adoration Booklet.
2. Exercise 3 times a week for 20 min. Begin each day with prayer. (These are together because I will do my daily bible reading from my Kindle Fire while using our elliptical machine.)
3. Get the homeschool routine back up and running.
