That's My Gold

Goal setting has never been successful for me. Not saying that I haven’t achieved things, but I’ve done so with a last minute, I hope I get the desired result, effort. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t.

Before judgment is passed, let me assure the world: I’ve tried! I’ve read books and articles to learn how to set goals, but it didn’t take. To date I haven’t been able to apply what I’ve learned in actual real life situations where goals are needed.

All that said, I have learned not to fall for the popular tradition of setting New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve accepted it and moved on, maybe one day things will be different, but 2011 will be goal free.

But all this doesn’t mean I’ll be flying through 2011 completely on a whim. I’ve come up with something that I believe will work better for me. Instead of making a list of goals, I’m going to make a list of things I consider to be gold.

My Gold is a list of valuable things at my disposal to help me in my quest to accept where I am in my life right now. Its purpose is perfectly summed up with:

“Grow where you are planted.” --Proverb

My Gold will also be flexible enough so as I grow during the year, it will continue to be serviceable.

I’ll share My Gold in future posts, so stay tuned!
