My son was always an inspiration when it came to setting goals. During ski season, he would set goals, during volleyball season, he would set goals. When he was a little fella, and on the first day of summer holidays, at home, he would tell me his goals for the summer, even when it was merely, land a flip on the trampoline.
This summer, I decided to follow his lead and prioritize a few things and then set some goals for myself. I do this often, in my mind but when I put something to paper, I feel even more committed to it. And so, here are my priorities this summer, as well as my goals:
Every day that I am at home I read, run and meditate along with all of the other things that I do in my yard, garden, greenhouse and house.
My goals are to read a book a week, be able to run for 30 minutes nonstop, write daily, smile more and breathe easily.
It’s the second week of July and so far I am on track, with the exception of my writing. It’s the tough one, the one that I avoid. Hmm, I wonder why? I guess I’ll go write about that…
How about you? Do you set summer goals?
