2007 Personal Goals

One of the things that drove me crazy when I first discovered the concept of self-improvement was goal-setting. I mean, it was easy to pick long term goals, i.e., be a gazillionaire when I retire, things like that. But the short term ones were the ones that I had trouble with. I tend to think big picture and long term, so thinking short term and at a lower level was more difficult. At the time, blogging was gaining in popularity but there still weren’t a lot of good examples of personal goals. So in case any one is in my situation, I decided to put these up. Also, it gives me accountability, now that I’m posting them for all to see.

There are lots of good blog posts out there on goal setting; just do a search. I’d recommend using Google’s Blogsearch for a start.

  2. Hi James,

    I am still trying to articulate my Goal list for the year and decided to check out examples in the internet. Google brought me to your site.
    I read earlier this year that one of the ways to accomplish your goals is to share it with others or put it on your blog. I praise your courage.
    If you won’t mind, will you let me know to what percentage you were able to achieve your 2007 goals and are u dropping the idea of doing the same thing for the current year

    Cheers

    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as people consider worries that they plainly
    don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and
    also defined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other people
    can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
