Goals and Achievements
Goals -What are yours for 2018? How many have you achieved?
Goals-I love setting goals, something that I’ve shared before. I’m very driven and before I finish one goal I have another one waiting to start. Recently, a number of friends have been encouraging me to take a moment celebrate how far I’ve come by making a list of my finished goals. I started to think about the items that I’ve accomplished. Here is my list of what I have done before I turned 50.

Phew! I’m getting tired from my list; I might need a nap before I set another goal. I hope none of you compare your list to mine. We all have a list; I’ve done more than some and less than others, but the important thing is that I’ve reached the goals I’ve set out to accomplish. That’s the key: comparison is the thief of all joy but being happy with what you’ve accomplished in your own life is something to be very proud of.
What does living your exceptional life look like to you?
What is on your list? Will you share your list with me?
When is the right time to go after your goals? Have you ever taken a moment to slow down and celebrate all that you have already done in life before you set the next goals?
Are you an overachiever or an underachiever? Do you have goals, aspirations, or a bucket list?
