This month I began a new project. I took the challenge from Seth Godin to write out my goals for 12 weeks & work on them every day- see: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2011/07/celebrating-zig-ziglar.html I bought a 4-pack back in August and realized it wasn't gonna be the type of thing I wanted to do. I had no desire to write my goals down everyday...or hold myself to the accountability of working on them daily.  Over the next couple of months in my book club (based on Maxwell's 21 Laws of Leadership) we began talking a lot about goals...particularly in The Law of Process.  Then it happened...I read an article about goals and it said only 3 people out of a hundred write down their goals.  That was it...we had 3 in our group, so I issued the challenge!  They took it! (oh crap...that meant I had to commit to this process too) My goals are: 1. Lead my family spiritually.  2. Write everyday.  3 & 4 are work-related with specific numerical goals so I'd rather not list them here.  Jen wrote on her blog about her goals - http://jenhall86.wordpress.com/2011/09/30/12-weeks-of-goals/ Jessica blogged her goals too - http://jessherrells-journeys.blogspot.com/2011/10/be-in-3.html We began at the start of October, so at this point we are beginning week 5.  I've had more "hits" than "misses" but there have still been more times than I prefer to have to write "nothing done today" next to a goal.  We are almost half way into our 12 week process, and I can already feel a difference. I'm growing as a person and also getting great results at work from putting intentional time and focus everyday towards my goals.  You can do it too! Are you one of the 3 (who writes down your goals) or part of the 97% who doesn't? Which WILL you be? Don't wait for January 1st to try new goals...get started now! JE Sent from my iPhone
