I’ve been somewhat ambivalent toward goal-setting ever since they introduced it as a requirement in school. It’s something that had never meshed well with my personality. If I decided to do something, I’ll do it without having to call the shot first. Even if I do write it down as a goal, and then I don’t meet it, my response is “oh well”. Other than having another list to cross it off of (I do like to-do lists), I don’t get anything out of it.
No payoff. No punishment. No point.
I have the same opinion of New Year’s Resolutions, which means I tend to look at other people making these lists at the start of the year and consider joining in, usually before going off to do something else.
This year, I’ve decided to make try it anyway, and make a list of things I’d like to accomplish. I’m still skeptical, but who knows? If I get more out of it than I expect, I might even do it again next year( Read the rest of this entry » )
