New Year’s Resolution

January 3, 2009

Everyone sets New Year’s Resolutions. Most of them are the classics of exercise, lose weight and to quick that nasty habit of smoking. Almost all of us have things that we would like to see happen in our lives whether it is New Year’s or not. Setting goals means your moving forward, you are trying to be progressive and proactive. Good for you.

A while back a goal of mine was to start a blog and when I did that I felt very vulnerable.I feel that way now, but I will share some goals that I have for 2009. Some are just plain and simple and some are big and make me feel nervous just telling someone about them.

In 2009 I would like to:

Drink less pop– I have noticed that my energy levels have been down lately and I have the sneaky suspision that it has to do with how much pop I drink.

I would like to be more active– In 2008 I went from working construction and landscaping to working in a office. I want to maintain the same weight my entire life. Somewhere between 175 and 195 is where I want to be.

I want to create a personal board– Organizations have numerous people who sit on boards and committee’s. I would like to have one personally. I will write more on this in a later post.

I want to speak in another country– I might have a chance to do this in the spring when I go on a mission trip to Bulgaria.

Begin to write a book– I have the main idea and the first five chapters thought out in my mind. It makes me nervous to write this  goal.

Become more selfless– I need to love more like Jesus Christ. I know as a Christian that this should be first and foremost but how often do we all forget how to do this. I am going to say that I can do a better job than I am now. We all can love more.

    Hey Ben. I think this setting goals thing is a really cool idea. We have talked about this as individuals and a family. No conclusions yet!
