    I love setting goals! I really like the sense o direction it gives me. I also believe that determination is key in achieving them. But like you said, sometimes life happens and you have to adjust. I find it hard not feeling guilty when i can’t follow the plans i had, but i am learning to be more flexible an “roll with the punches” Thanks for yhe post!

    Thanks Ruth for writing this post.

    I exactly did what you explained here. I first listed my goals for one year then break it down monthly and weekly basis. And I list my daily task based on the weekly goal.

    Every week I review my short goal and plan accordingly.

    Great info, and timely too!

    I just happened to be tweaking a goal sheet for the year, broken down by sections like:
    “By the end of 2017 I will”, then a section of “To do this I will need to”, then a list of everyday tasks that should move me toward the “I will need to” things. I’m hoping that printing it out each week and writing my results on it will help!

    I like the example of Steven Spielberg too. He was rejected by the film school at USC three times and still managed to push ahead despite that and accomplish so much!

    Great tips! Listing goals and not accomplishing is a pet peeve of mine but I’ve realized this year that i set my standards high too high. The best thing I do is take each goals one at a time or i’ll overwhelm myself. Time is not our friends so managing it is all we can do to not go nuts!

    I am always looking back at our long term goals, and making sure that our 90 day goals are set to get us there. I also tend to break things down into what I need to do this month/week to keep me on track. I am chasing 3 kids and homeschooling, so I have to keep lists and goals to make sure I don’t lose my focus.
