This is my first yearly goals post, and I’m kind of excited about it! It’s not that I haven’t posted goals before, but it’s been pretty random (like here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here – and that’s all within the last year). Not very helpful, especially considering I’m still facing most of the same challenges 🙁 .
For the last few years, I’ve assigned the freshmen in my New Student Seminar course to write SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound – for their first or second semester of college. I guess it’s about time I practiced what I preach 😕 .
My Goals for 2011
- Write at least three posts a week
- Lose 20 pounds by June 1
- Complete at least two 5K races – all running, no walking
- Complete a backpacking trip
I think this is more than enough to tackle in 2011. Some things are already on my calendar, like the backpacking trip and one 5K. The weight loss is a work in progress, and I hope that my daily posting can keep me on track with all of these goals.
Question of the Day:
What is one of your goals for 2011?
