New Year’s Resolutions

Recently I sat down with my wife and children to create a list of resolutions that we would like to accomplish in the almost here 2012 year. 

At first we tossed around a list of items that was all over the place. For example: draw closer to God, give homeschooling a try, become better at time management, create an android version of smart golf scorecard, learn how to play a guitar, loose a few pounds, etc. Quickly the list became disorganized.

A thought came to me, "we should list one goal per fragment of our life." We identified six parts to focus on: spiritual, relational/family, calling/mission/purpose, physical/emotional, educational/work, and hobby/other.

We tried to make sure our goals were measurable. After over an hour the four of us had recorded at least one goal in each of the six categories.

Happy New Year!
