My recent post was about how to set goals, so here are my goals for the coming year!  Remember…Category, Reason, Habit.

This may seem a little overboard to you, but this is exactly how my brain works.  I also physically write these down in my journal, so I am constantly reminded of them.  This is the way I can picture setting my goals.  There are difference techniques of goal setting.  For example, my husband doesn’t write out his goals specifically like I do.  This would be too overwhelming for his personality type.  Find your niche, but most importantly ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS!!!
