New Year, Renewed Focus

I think it’s important to set goals. Even if you don’t achieve them all it gives something to work toward. A sense of direction and purpose. New Year’s resolutions are a bit tired, they burn out and are vague and useless in my opinion. Maybe resolutions and goals are the same thing under a different heading? I like goals though. It sounds firm and assured. The start of the year is a good time to make goals. I want this to be a productive year.

Here’s the list.
