Last year was an interesting year for me. I learned a lot about my health and myself. I learned about the things I do like, as well as the things that I don’t like; whether it was about myself or the people around me.

I’m not setting a New Years Resolution. It never works for me. I end up selecting either one bad thing or creating a list of things that I won’t do, instead of things that I will do. The list of “wonts” just never works for me.

So, I’m doing things a little differently this year. I’m setting some goals that I’d like to meet this year. And then I’m going to make the strides to reach them. I’m creating my list of goals in my 43 Things (http://43things.com) account. And I’ll be checking in each week to either check a goal off, add a goal, or remind myself of the goals I’ve set.

I like 43 Things because I can check the list from the web or from my BlackBerry and iPhone. I can even modify that list on the go. I’m even able to write notes on each goal and receive comments and cheers from friends on Facebook. My notes will be the steps I’ve taken as I’ve taken them. I can even edit a progress slider to indicate how far I’ve gotten in reaching each goal. 43 Things makes goal setting much easier.

My goals will be short term goals that I can reach; goals that I can see and almost touch. Ya see, it’s easy for me to set the goals and get things in motion, but I have a hard time with the follow through. The largest goal that I have set by far is to follow through on the goals that I set in motion.

This year will be better.
I’ve got a primer now.

Let’s go.
