So I pulled up my post for 2009 goals and realized that I totally failed to achieve 3 out of 4 of them. While one goal was out of my control the other ones just never materialized. One included running a half marathon (which I didn’t do). Another was building the number of visitors to “The Inspired Mom” which I did a little but not to the degree I had hoped; and, finally I wanted to spend more time with my kids- which I TOTALLY did. Hard to measure, but I definitely feel satisfied on that front of my life.
Here are my goals for 2010. I am going to try and make them fairly tangible so I can plan, set aside time and really realize my goals.
1. I am going to set aside at least 5 hours a week to work on my blog/baby book business. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but with one child who only goes to school three days a week and two older kids who need help with homework etc. I feel that this is realistic number of hours for me to really commit. I hope that I will do more than that, but I am going to schedule those hours into my calendar.
2. I am going to continue to work on my swimming, so that I might get in the ocean for a swim during the spring/summer- without being paralyzed with fear. I will keep you all posted on my progress.
3. (This is my “intangible”) I am going to try and be more appreciative of the fact I get to stay home with my kids for now. I have been really antsy to try and get back to work at some point. Hopefully my new business will keep me busy enough that I will consider it my full-time job, but while I am waiting for the final product, I will really try to enjoy time with the kids and some free time while they are at school.
I would really like to hear some of your goals for 2010- resolutions are great too. Just thinking about my goals and typing them out has gotten me fired up to stay true to them.
