Resolutions and Goal Setting articles abound this time of year. All in all, I believe the most important thing we can do to start goal resolution keeping is explained in three simple words – Write It Down! By taking the time to write it down we can have a record of our thoughts, planned actions and desires. We can then track, make changes or reevaluate.
In early 1983 I read the book, Making Time, Making Money (St. Martin’s Press) by Rita Davenport. This book had a thirty page workbook built-in which was aptly titled Exercises that Make You a Time Management Winner. From time to time I pull out the book and see how I have succeeded and how I have diverted from some of my earlier goals. After all life is a journey and sometimes we change our destinations.
Having a record of your desires is the first step on that journey. How are you planning to write it down?
