Happy New Year!
At this time of year I usually make New Year’s resolutions. I try to set at least three resolutions for the year a head. I usual get close to what ever goal I had set but I don’t always exceed all of my resolutions. I see my goals as a guide to where I want to be a year from now. If I meet or exceed my goal great but as long as I am on path then I am doing well.
I haven’t really set a goal for this year and I am not sure I want to. I have an idea of what I want to work on this year but I don’t want to put anything to paper for some reason. Maybe I have too many goals for this year, which is not unlike me. I usually have a lot of ambitions and I am really harsh with myself.
Maybe I don’t want to disappoint myself when I don’t meet or exceed my goals for this year. Believe me I work very hard at my goals but I think I have too many to really focus on any one thing.
What ever the reason I know I will be successful at what ever goals I have in mind and no matter what happens this year. Just to make sure I am heading in the right direction I will put down a few things on my agenda for this year so I can refer to them next year…
1.) Finish my Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation
2.) Add $50,000 to $100,000 of new business to my departments bottom line
3.) Get my husband organized and keep him organized
4.) Improve and/or increase marketing for my department and our agency
5.) Become a skill level 4 in 8 ball/3 in 9 ball
6.) Establish long term financial security via a retirement plan and life insurance
That is only a few at the top of my to-do list. I told you I have a long list. Now it’s time to get down to business…
