As the year comes to an end, I am again thinking about my goals for the coming year. I have some already in my head but I think I need more. So far most of mine are general and I do want to pin myself down to some specific ones. You don’t want to just have those “ Miss America” goals like; “ I want to do good things for good people and be a sugary sweet person blah blah blah. “ Goals need to be specific and measurable. That is something I learned in Management class. They must also be achievable so no goals of becoming the next President although I do think I am as good of a candidate as the ones we have. Wait, I am not worth 208 million dollars.
This year all my goals are going to be positive. I want to start things and do things and go places. In the past all of mine have been negative like lose weight, Stop doing this or that or be less of something. In general I want to make a positive impact on the world. I know, I am only one person but a little positive change is better than no change at all. If everyone does one positive thing then maybe we will see it. This sounds over simplistic but I do think it is possible. If you don’t believe me think of the opposite side of the coin:
As most of you know, yesterday’s terrible tragedy is Pakistan was felt around the world. Bhutto’s death was caused by one person . I know there were others behind it but one person carried out the suicide mission. If one person can make such a negative impact, why can’t one person make a positive one? I think it deserves a try. Rather than dwell on this lets think of positive things we can all do today. Lets remember She who worked for peace in the world and do what we can to keep her work alive.
Have a great day,
