Are you a goals person?

Are you a goals person? You know the type. They are able to set short-term and long-term goals. They are able to focus on those goals and actually accomplish them.

I am not this type of person. I never have been. I used to view goals as a way to let myself down because I would be upset if I did not accomplish them. And really, who needs that kind of stress anyway?

Well, I need to become that kind of person. This year, I did discover that to-do lists were actually a good thing. They gave me focus. They helped me remember what I needed to on a daily basis. They helped my memory out in ways that can only be imagined!

I realized that to-do lists are actually just short-term goals and I can accomplish them. If I don't get them done, no biggie. I just add them to tomorrow's list. It is all good.

This has helped my focus out in many ways. To-do lists have convinced me that I can set long-term goals as well as short-term goals. I have the focus and discipline to accomplish this. And maybe I don't have adult ADD. I was starting to wonder.

A huge benefit to setting goals and making to-do lists? I have found out I save money by doing this. What you say? I save money. I know what I need to buy now. I am looking for ways to make projects cheaper because I know they are goals I want to accomplish. I look at what I have first before I buy because I have researched my goals and I know what I need. I don't stand at Menards wondering what I need because I have a list.

Although I doubt that this will be cured altogether. I like wandering around Menards aimlessly. I get ideas that way.

I am starting to make lists for my goals. I want to share them with you to help you as well as me. You know what they say about accountability. With this blog, I consider myself to be accountable to you all. So that is what I will be doing for the next week. Sharing my goals, hopes and dreams.

Hopefully not setting myself up to fail. I can be good at that too.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
