Goals for 2011

On Sunday, I went to my mom's church, which was also the church where I spent most of my elementary and junior high years. Only now, it's about 3-4 times the size it was then. I'll admit, it's taken me awhile to warm up to it again. They scored major brownie points by singing Glory to God that day, too.:) Anyways, the pastor encouraged us to write down some goals for 2011. I hate new year's resolutions, they are always things that you never stick to. Over the years, I have become a goal oriented person. Maybe it's all the goal setting you do in teaching? I need something to reach for, or I won't be motivated.

Did you know only 5% of Americans write down their goals? These 5% are also the Americans with the highest salary. Not that that is why I'm doing it, just a random, interesting fact. :)

Here's some goals I'd like to reach in 2011:

1) Be in the Word, daily. Get up 30 min earlier to do so.
2) Pray for the Middle East.
3) Meet around 5 new people, a month.
4) Get closer to my goal weight.
5) Work out at least 5 times a week.
6) Stick to a monthly budget.
7) Be better about sending cards, letters, aka keeping in touch
8) Work LESS.

Feel free to ask me how these things are going this year! Happy New Year!

Good luck meeting 5 new people a WEEK!!! I feel like I meet 5 new people a month if I'm lucky :) J/K that's an awesome goal. In your goal of meeting new people I hope you meet 1 person in particular, if ya know what I mean ;-)
