This new year is an opportunity to take a whole new perspective on goals you wish to achieve and who you want to be in 2021.
To develop your 2021 goals, it may be tempting to just grab your 2020 goals, and update them. But I urge you to try to dig deep and really think about it. 2020 gave each of us an opportunity – even forced us – to reexamine our goals, plans, and priorities.
One of the best ways to stick with your goals is to write them down. Over the years I’ve used a simple goals worksheet, and kept it in a place that I would see it regularly. You can use a goals sheet like mine or make your own. Here are my goals for 2021.
- As I look forward to the new year, I’m wanting to ease into a semi-retirement. This doesn’t mean I’m giving up writing, I sincerely doubt that I can ever stop. Write in the mornings and save the afternoon for personal pursuits. To live a balanced life.
- More time with Wayne—traveling, visiting family, taking a cruise or two.
- Planting and harvesting a large garden.
- Knitting one item for everyone in the family because knitting is how I express love.
- Getting back to swimming and a regular exercise program.
