So this week, I am going to work on some of the baby steps to completing my goals for 2012. Starting off, I am working on reading the Word every day. That is my primary discipline goal for January.
1. Read the Word every day.
2. Knit 1 hour on the Sweater of Doom
3. Finish homework for orientation on Saturday.
4. Write an encouraging note to one of my care pastor group members.
5. Finish working on budget for January.
So I am setting up some goals for 2012 that I can then break down into my weekly goals. That way the goals aren’t something random I’m picking out of thin air, but will actually go on to accomplish bigger goals for myself and my family. It is so important to set goals for anything in life. Proverbs states that, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). Vision is being able to see ahead, and knowing what you want to accomplish when. Vision is having a destination, and without a destination, we wonder around aimlessly feeling pointless and useless. So, I am putting down my goals for various areas of my life, for all the world to see. Then I can break these down every week into something bite-size
