Well nothing like a Saturday to begin goal setting for 2015? As if I would only be just beginning to set goals at the end of November for the following year.
I reviewed my 2014 goals which included a section for 2015 and 2016 goals and I am at least a little satisfied with the success. Not perfect but generally there was progress made.
Over the past few months I have been modifying my short term goals (which I’ll quantify as the next two years). Over the summer I had to break out each month for the following two years and set targets for those months in XMind (the mind mapping software I use). It was easier to see this way. No, it is not ideal for my mind but it was the best I could do given the software I am familiar with. I guess this means that I should go ahead and add 2017 into the mix?
I have also been thinking about longer term goals (which I will quantify as five to ten years). This is much more difficult for me to get a handle on so I have always kept these goals a bit broader. Knowing I have goals out that far is good but leaving them more fluid helps me manage everything (OK at least my mind) better.
Organized thoughts. Organized patterns. Using math to predict the future! OK well you know…
