I am not big on doing new year resolutions… but I have a few things I want to try to do this year.

Over the past week or so I have started working on my 1st goal – which is to read more business & personal development books. I finished reading Crush It! last week, thoroughly enjoyed it, and appreciate Renia letting me borrow it… now I am working on The Big Picture, which my dad shared with me! I have another dozen books to go through, that I already have, and then I am going to be looking for new titles & recommendations! I LOVE to read, but usually prefer fiction – but have to work on improvements as well!
My goal is one chapter a day, at the minimum!

I have been working on getting back in shape; in the fall of 2010 I decided to get it started, and lost almost 25 pounds. I have managed to keep it all off (well, usually, but I have put a pound or two of holiday weight on, but that will come off quick). I have been 10 pounds from my goal since then, and I have decided to get back focused and lose those last 10 pounds, so then I can go SHOPPING for a new wardrobe. I have given myself a deadline of  March 31st. And here it is in writing, I am going to do it!
In support of that, and to spend more time with my 4 legged family (in the photo is my 4 dogs and one that passed away last year as well as my aunts 3 dogs), I am going to walk &/or rollerblade with my dogs at least 4 times a week (weather permitting).
And if you are wondering why I have a stroller, one of my dogs has problems with her back legs and cannot walk long distances.

I have other things on my To Do list for this year, join a Toastmasters group, walk 2 3-Days, writing more… but the 2 above are high up on the list starting last week…

    Good luck with your resolutions! I made a resolution 10 years ago to not make any more New Years resolutions. Rather than waiting for New Years Eve to start doing something, I make a decision that I want to accomplish something and start then.

    • My top resolution is to use less toilet paper. That stuff is expensive. I guess the main trend I see myself gravitating towards is be more consistent. That applies to writing, reading, exercising, staying in touch with folks, networking. It’s a simple thing, but something you really have to be committed to and stick with. Consistency is the key!

        Sharon – that has to be one of my favorite resolutions ever… just not sure the best way to make it happen!

      I am totally on board with you Lisa! I made the decision to start reading the books right before Christmas, and have made it through one already!

    I want to focus more on implementing and executing, I am going to be reading and writing more this
    year, as well as, teaching. I agree, I think being consistent is an important part of achieving.I have an oppurtunity to teach financial literacy to both children and adults which I am excited about.

  3. Writing, walking the Boston 3-Day with you, spending more time having FUN. Loosing 15 lbs. We need to set writing and walking dates and keep each other motivated! Great stuff Tiffanie!

      Renia – We need to get you switched over under the Eager Beaver team… I have a cool idea for one of our day’s apparel – working on it this week 😉
      Writing, walking & w_____

    Tiffanie, I don’t usually make New Years Resolution either but I too want to read more business books and want to walk my Maltese 3-4 days a week. I’ll be happy to share some books with you too. We also need to get the Maltese dogs together.

  5. Every year I make an attempt at goal setting, but this is the first year that I really feel that I am in control and I can set legitimate SMART goals. I now know HOW and WHY I set each goal. My resolution is to work more closely with my mentor and develop a strong business plan for this year. My business education over the past year makes me feel really good about the direction that my business is heading.
