Goal Setting 101.2011

Wow!  Hard to believe that we have already embarked on 2011, isn't it?!?!?

After such an eventful 2010, I am looking forward to this new year with much anticipation.  Keeping in mind that in the past resolutions have been made only to be broken (at least for me!), I am approaching this year with the philosophy of "Setting Goals".  Yeah, I like the sound of that much better!!!

One of my foremost goals for this year is obvious, but worth putting into words:

Establish myself as a Real Estate Professional

I realize that it's going to require a lot of time and effort, but there is a huge opportunity for me to build a career that will be truly rewarding on many different levels.  I am UP to the Challenge!  This goal has many facets and lots of "little" goals within it, so it will be important for me to keep taking those steps forward on a consistent basis. 

Another goal I'm putting into words and actions this year:

Maintain my commitment to growing stronger and healthier.

December was a terribly "off" month for me and the regimen I developed with working out and eating healthy.  But, no use whining about it.  Time to just jump back on the wagon and pick up where I left off!  I promise to try not to whimper about how much it hurts when I hit BodyPump again this next week....

There are so many things I hope to accomplish this year, but these two are at the forefront.  In working towards accomplishing these very general goals, I know that there will be many of those rewarding moments that come from taking baby steps towards the finish line.  Hopefully, there will be some giant strides along with those baby steps, but forward progress IS forward progress!

Now, for an immediate goal:

Get the header on Janie's Porch changed.

Yep, that's one of those "to do" list things, but it's a goal nonetheless!  And one I (and my trusty camera) need to get busy on....

How about you?  Set any goals for the coming year?  Big or small, I look forward to sharing the journey towards reaching our goals with you in 2011!

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!



  1. Hi, Jane!
    I can say that I've finally mastered the header change....unless it involves putting up a mosaic, so maybe not.
    New Year's Resolutions??? Mister scoffs at them, but I don't make them unless I truly intend to keep them. They aren't so much fun this year, as first on the list is to Make A Will....
    Happy New Year!

  2. Hi Jane, good luck on your 2011 "goals". With a positive, can-do attitude, you'll do great!

    Happy New Year!

  3. Hi Jane~ Good luck with your resolutions and Happy New Year to you and yours!!
