2008 Accomplishments (Claiming Victory Before The Year Starts)

tophat_happynewyear.gif

I made my plan for 2008!  I am making them public so I can be held accountable.

  1. Follow Weight WatchersI lost 60 pounds before and I am gonna do it again!
  2. Read or Listen to 12 Books Minimum (Fiction or Non-Fiction)In my heart I wanted to top 30 this year, but it scared me to commit to that many this year.
  3. Perform Daily Bible or Christian Reading/Meditation  This will continue my walk with God as I get to know Him better. 
  4. Exercise Five Days a WeekI thought of putting a time limit or specific exercises, but I plan on increasing both within a couple of months.  This wording will help me focus on the basics of what I want to accomplish.
  5. Seek Healthier Options and Choose Them – It is so easy to back into a corner of saying there are no healthy options so I am making it a point to seek them out.
  6. Increase Discernment In Spending and Savings – I am an impulse buyer so this will help me make better choices.  I may still buy silly non-practical stuff, but if I use discernment in making the choice, I will not regret my spending.
  7. Date My Wife – We are blessed with a happy wonderful marriage (10 years this August!).  I want to ensure we still take time to go on dates and not get in a cycle of routine.
  8. Bring Camera With Me – Life goes by so fast and digital pictures are cheap.  Why not capture it and the people around me?
  9. Create and Follow a House Upkeep Schedule -Sometimes house projects get overwhelming and cause me to procrastinate.  A schedule with focus on specific areas will help make this more doable.
  10. Complete My PMP Certification Training Sometimes classes with self directed schedules can get out of whack.  I want to add this so I ensure I complete it!
  11. Post on Pass The Buck a Minimum of 3 Days a Week I have discovered a new love of writing since I started this.  I also read blogs and know there is nothing worse than wondering if the author is ever going to update the site.  This commitment will give a deadline of sorts which is important in self-publishing.

I hope all of my readers have their 2008 goals written down.  I hope you are more than just encouraged, but that you take action on your inspiration.  We can all have a great 2008!
