Looking Ahead 2009

Last year, I wrote my goals for the first time. Periodically, I reviewed my progress in fulfilling them but unfortunately, I was not able to post any updates in this blog. In my previous entry, I revisited my last year's goals to see how much I've accomplished by the end of the year and I'm happy that I fared well.


This year, I am writing my S-M-A-R-T goals once again. I divided them into two groups: personal and financial. The fianancial goals include those that involve money while was placed under personal goals. Some of my goals are non-bloggable and not published here.

We learned about SMART goals in one of our workshops at work and I've been doing this too.

Although I haven't been that successful yet in achieving any of the goals I have set for myself, I am getting there. It's always nice to be reminded of your goals. Thanks!

@Ron, Thanks.

@MommyBa
That is why we need to write them so we can review our progress and adjust if necessary. I'm sure you will achieve yours since your goal is attainable as per SMART.
