twelve goals for twelve months

i don’t believe in resolutions, but there is something to be said for setting realistic [and sometimes pie-in-the-sky] goals to live by and strive for. on that note, on this 12th day of january, here are twelve goals for 2011 – one for each month – to guide me into the new year!

one: make a detailed financial budget and stick to it

two: conquer one of my fears

three: reconnect with a family member or friend

four: come up with a dissertation topic and successfully propose it

five: eliminate artificiality from my diet – eat whole foods

six: read a book a week

seven: take a dream vacation

eight: train for a marathon

nine: be a better friend, sister, daughter, and all around human being

ten: donate to at least two new charities

eleven: volunteer at a local organization even if i don’t think i have time

twelve: love me for me and learn to accept who i am as a person

what are your goals for 2012?
