A New Beginning...

I always love the first day of the year. A day to reflect on what you have done and what you have left undone in the previous year. A day to create plans for the new set of 365 days stretching out before you as yet unmarred. I have taken advantage of today to review my 2006 goals and see how much I accomplished and then launched into the development of my 2007 goals. Goals must present a challenge and mine certainly do. I look forward to trying to accomplish every single one. In addition to my 12 general life goals I also came up with six needlework goals. I will post these goals for 2007 here but I also posted my 101 Tasks in 1001 Days list in an earlier post. Although I created my task list in July of 2006 I never got around to posting it. Well now I have committed myself here as well as on some yellow legal paper in my breifcase.

So what are my goals for 2007? Here goes:
General Goals:
  1. Continue to build on my relationship with DH.
  2. Stay connected to my family, build these relationships and build new friendships.
  3. Develop a consistent journaling habit as a way to reflect: blog & book.
  4. Reevaluate my commitments, be realistic, & be reliable in those I choose to keep.
  5. Exercise regularly (aerobic and weights) & improve my flexibility (yoga)
  6. Take care of my health: see the doctor & dentist, change my eating habits, and get down to 150 lbs.
  7. Continue to decorate and improve our home.
  8. Clean out the junk in our home & organize: commons, closets, and basement.
  9. Organize my office.
  10. Do some financial planning.
  11. Continue to develop my collaborative teaching techniques.
  12. Develop my scholarship and refine UG Coordinator role.
