My Goals for the New Year

Ah, the all important resolutions and goal setting. Admittedly I am someone who sets goals but doesn’t follow through in my personal goals. This year I’m working on making all of my goals for next year SMART goals. If you haven’t heard this classic acronym before let me review quickly...SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time sensitive (has a deadline). When I follow through on all of these aspects I tend to be more successful in achieving my goals. I’d like to take a moment to share a few of my goals for the new year both personal and profession...take a moment to read them and share some of your goals for 2012 below...I’d love to hear from you!
