With the start of the year and everyone goal setting, myself included, I remembered something.
Usually as the year goes on and I get to, say June or even before then, and I’m doing none of the things I set out to do. Somehow, I would end up in the same slump and old habits I wanted to change from the previous year .
I know everything can’t always go the way I plan it, and that’s okay because God has ultimate control, but there are the things I can control. If there is an obstacle I have the choice to give up right there and then or stay strong and keep pushing ahead. I have to decided to stick through it all and finish what I started. That’s always been a problem for me, finishing what I start.
Well, as always I got my calendar for the year and I usually run through it and scribble down the birthdays of my family and close friends just so I’ll have a visual reminder and then it hit me. This would be great for my goals as well.
This will help me keep track of the year in a quick and easy way by noting when I start a goal and when I finish it. Also, anything positive or inspiring I hear during the day I write down as well to stay encouraged. I like that idea because it forces me to look for the light in each day.
Since exercise is also one of my goals this year, I’ll keep track of that in blue ink, I’ll be numbering the days I do workout. So if I look back at a month and there isn’t enough blue, well I’ll know I’ll have to get back to some push ups again.
One regret of mine was looking back at all the time I wasted doing nothing. I don’t want to do that again is year. I want to look back at every month and see it covered with words and progress.
This is a great idea for those who don’t have time to write a whole journal entry or aren’t fans of the whole diary thing.
How do you keep track of your progress?
Have a great and productive Monday.
Thanks for reading.
