Let’s talk about goals as a way to achieve what we want.

The thing about goals is they can be whatever you want them to be and they can apply to whatever parts of your life that you’d like. You can have huge massive goals like earning a million dollars and having a lavish lifestyle. Or you can have small goals like getting through today with all your small children still breathing. Your goals just have to be important to you. It doesn’t matter what my goals are or what goals the Jones’s have.

I like to have multiple goals for different parts of my life. I have goals for my knitting. I have goals for my parenting. I have goals for my life. Depending on the day I have other little goals.

Currently my goals involve at least 14 rounds on the cowl every day, raising civilized human beings who contribute to society and cleaning one thing in my house.

Some days I do really well and hit all my small goals. Other days not so great. But I keep working on it and really isn’t that the key.

    I love goals. I don’t know where I would be without my goals. Do I reach them all? Absolutely NOT!

  3. I love your goals – I want to get through a day without yelling at someone or something.

    I have knitting and sewing goals, but don’t really set life goals. I figure if I get up each day and succeed at breathing I am good! LOL

    I plan things I will try to accomplish every day, I consider it a good day if I manage one thing.

    I love the idea of smaller goals. I get caught up in thinking ‘big goals’ all the time and then it ends up feeling like I never accomplish anything. I think I need to start setting smaller goals and recognizing when I achieve them!

    • One or two small goals daily work out really well. I learned way back when my now 32 year old daughter was a baby that the goal of getting dressed and making it through the day with everyone alive and happy was a fine goal:)

    Our goals are different, but definitely near the same size! I prefer smaller daily goals that get me to the big things…eventually.

    Those seem like doable goals…well at least the knitting and cleaning ones. If they are too ambitious, then it is just overwhelming. The parenting one is a little harder to measure!
