Like most people at the beginning of the year I was all about a life planner. I made a planner (that I never used) and for the first time created goals for myself. I have never been a goal setter. I always would have liked to set goals, but never did. I would say I didn’t know what kind of goals to set for fitness, or couldn’t make up my mind etc.
While I was knee-deep in the life planner I created a list of goals for myself for 2017. I wrote down 3 goals on 01-05-17. I don’t know if I printed it off and put somewhere. I don’t think I have looked at it since maybe 01-10-17. This is one reason I am not good at goal setting. I forgot all about my goals for the year shortly after making them.
I came across the list today and realized I crushed all three goals!!
- Donate cookies to church – At the beginning of the month I gave our pastor a set of Halloween cookies for Pastor appreciation month.
- Look into bake sale for No Kid Hungry – I had a Facebook bake sale during Easter and raised $90 for No Kid Hungry.
- Practice cookie decorating, would like to be able to go to Cookie Con 2019 **this goes hand in hand with donating to church. Can donate my practice cookies – I have been decorating more throughout the year and want to continue to get better. I have tried some new techniques and I keep Cookie Con Sept 2018 in the back of my mind.
What a great feeling it is to know I was working towards my goals even if I didn’t remember. I guess cookie decorating is becoming more and more of who I am and what I love to do.
There are two spots left on the sheet. I wonder if I can think of two more goals for 2017 and complete them before the year is done.
Make it a great day,
