2017 is here; What are your Goals?

2016 has ended; 2017 is now upon us.  The beginning of the year is all about resolutions and goals. I've been thinking about my resolution and goals for the year (personally and professionally), and I wanted to share those with you today in the hopes that you reach your goals and make 2017 the best year ever.

Before revealing my 2017 goals, I want to stress the importance of creating SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-based). These will allow for you to accomplish your goals better than "getting healthy" or "read more". Project Smart goes through SMART goal setting.

Goals to complete by 12/31/2017

  • Read 50 books
  • Post on this blog once a week
  • Complete a course on Microsoft Excel (my weakest of the Microsoft applications)
  • Apply to graduate school by March (specific schools are identified/targeted)
  • Journal at least twice a week
  • Go to church at least twice a month
  • Go to the gym at least twice a week
  • Travel to one new city/state

What are your goals for 2017? I'd love to hear them!! Keep yourself accountable and may 2017 be the best year yet!!
