On Saturdays I list several blog posts from the week that I thought were really good. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
With the end of the year quickly approaching, I’ve been talking with my wife about setting some goals for 2013. Setting goals is a great practice because it helps to maintain your focus on what you want to achieve. I know we set annual performance goals at work for the same reason. Now, I don’t know how many of you out there have heard of SMART goals, but that’s what I’m working on for 2013. I’ll be writing a post about it in the near future, so check back later to see what we’re going to shoot for for 2013. But basically, it’s an acronymn to help you make good goals. It stands for Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely. If you goals meet all of those factors, they’re probably pretty good goals.
