I’ve been hesitating to write this post, and almost skipped sharing a review of my 2014 goals, but though I didn’t accomplish many of these goals, I learned a lot from working through this list. My main take away was that I simply had set too many goals. With 4 kids and a bustling home life, I simply don’t have the time I used to have to focus on tasks that are not right in front of me. That is just the stage that I’m in right now and it was good for me to see that my main focus is and should be on my family and family life. I have less room for goals, so I must choose those carefully and prayerfully.
I think 36 goals would be great for a list of fun projects or outings that could be accomplished easily in an afternoon or an evening, but not for goals that take a portion of the year to complete. I also had quite a few goals that were habit development goals. As I was working through this list I knew I just had to let some of them go. I also have discovered that I want the option to work on goals that inspire me in the moment. If I fill my days with New Year’s Resolutions, I won’t have room for those opportunity that present themselves. So, my take away was simple and meaningful goals with a little wiggle room for all that life may throw at us. I’ll share more on my goals for 2015 in soon to be shared post.
Below is my report on my goals. I have crossed off the goals that I have completed or that I have semi-completed.
So that was my year in goals. I’m excited to post my new year’s goals here soon!
