Today, I am excited to be guest posting for Keri at Growing in His Glory. It’s all about making weekly goals.
Goals. The beginning of every year many people take the time to evaluate the last 12 months and plan for the next 12. Each individual has their own way to go about this.
I see goals as being a road map. A plan to get where you want. It’s okay to make changes and adapt along the way, but they give you a running start. If I’m going on vacation, I don’t get in the car and start driving. Instead I have a destination, budget, timeline, and plans for when I arrive.
My goals are my destination, where I want to be at the end of the year. They give me something to look toward and strive for. They give me direction.
365 days can seem like a long time and it may be easy to lose focus.
Making weekly goals is one way I’ve found to help.
Head over to Growing in His Glory to read the rest.
Linking up to these fun parties!
You are a gal after my own heart! Sticky notes and lists…keeps us going but the bane to our existence!
Hooray for lists! They are awesome. It’s always a little sad to not get everything checked off though.
I read the rest of the post on Growing in His Glory but thought I’d post here. 🙂 I love your accountability suggestions. Having one or more people to support you with your goals is really helpful. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for reading and commenting – I appreciate it. Oh goodness, it is so helpful, isn’t it. I’m much less likely to slack off if I know there are others supporting me.
I found lists became an idol for me, as though the more I had checked off, the more value I had. Now I write things down only if I won’t remember them otherwise.
Great perspective and reminder. Even lists and goals can become idols. Thanks for the reminder to keep things in check.
Hi Deanna! First time here on your blog, through #fellowshipfridays. I really appreciate the visualization & accountability measures you offered…time to get refocused on putting meaning into each day’s business.
One way I’m trying this year also is a Pinterest board, here’s mine: http://www.pinterest.com/redeemingher/2014/
Thanks so much for stopping by, Rachel! Accountability really makes a big difference for me. Love your idea for using the Pinterest board. I might have to try that.
Setting goals is so important, so why do we find it so easy to neglect them? Thank you for the reminder to keep at it……………..Gentle Joy
Me too! I seem to go through phases where I do really well and then things get crazy and I’m just doing what I can. It always feels good to jump back in though.
I’m a list kind of person. I do better when I have something to check off and see that I’m making progress. Setting goals is important for anyone. Without a clear goal, you’re just going, going, going….. and have a tendency to lose interest or drive. Thanks for linking up at our Let’s Get Real Friday Party. I hope you’ll join us again.
I like lists too! 🙂 It’s easier to tackle the next thing that way. I don’t end up wasting time trying to figure out what to do next. Thanks for stopping by and for commenting!

I really like the idea of viewing your goals has a roadmap to your destination. I needed to read this today. I’ve been in a funk and needed to be reminded why that I need to refresh and regroup. Goal setting is a great motivator and always makes me feel like things are achievable and not so overwhelming.
I get in funks too! I’m the same way, goal making helps so much, especially when broken into sizable chunks.
