Setting Goals

Since it is a new year, many people are now taking a few moments to set goals for the year. This is something relatively new for me as I am not typically the type of person to sit down and make plans for the year. I am what you might term a go-with-the-flow type of guy. This fits especially well with my Myers-Briggs personality inventory of INFP. I have spent the last few days sitting down with my wife planning out our goals for 2013. She has been sharing with me several books and articles to help us set specific measurable goals that are reasonable. One of the most recent articles was from Money Saving Mom's website called How to Change Your Life by Setting Goals.

In the article she goes into detail on how to set goals and the reasons for doing so. She has me convinced and for the first time we now have our goals for 2013 relatively finalized. Much to my surprise, I am now excited to start working on them. Who knew?

Do you write out your goals for the new year?
