Goal Setting – February 2010

 Introduction

So January is down… when did that happen?  2010 is already 1/12 complete.  Have you accomplished 1/12 of your goals for the year?

Hey, it’s a fair question and to be honest with you, I have not.  I guess it’s part excuse and part explanation, but I’ve been snowed under at work in a way that I did not anticipate.  That’s a good thing, job security is what my grandfather calls it, and as right as that is, it also serves as a wake up call to my dedication and motivation to accomplish my goals in other areas.

So here’s the recap.  I trust you’re ahead of my current pace, but watch out.  I’m going to turn this thing around.  I’m still very excited – perhaps moreso now… – in the prospects 2010 holds.

 

 Context Setting for New Readers – Welcome! On this site, I’ve invested considerable time sharing, exploring, and refining my approach to goal setting.  I try to outline goals along 8 unique fronts which together help me – as I accomplish my targets – remain rounded and balanced. My eight fields of focus include:Spiritual, Financial, Career, Personal Development, Physical, Family, Social, and Household.I also layer time horizons across each category to ensure I am able execute in the moment while maintaining an alertness in the end game.For 2010, I am incorporating a new facet into my experiment in self improvement – Public Accountability – and that’s what you’ve stumbled into. Please feel free to check out any of my previous articles on this topic for additional context and exploration.      Man in Full     4th Quarter     Accomplish Goals by Having Them
