Goal Focus

Resolved: No Resolutions!

It seems our society places some emphasis on New Year’s resolutions! However, in my experience, most these idle plans are not well thought through and do not really last long into the New Year. I think of resolutions as temporary, not fixed, so we loose them when we get busy.

I would challenge you to Focus on Goals, not resolutions…

So try working on some new goals, ones that have the potential to move your ministry forward to another level. Therefore, consider formulating some really well conceived goals, ones that are thought through, as you have been learning. It is better to have a few well-conceived goals than to have many illegitimate-shallow goals—ones that are too soon abandoned.

I tend to plan annual goals and break them into monthly goals during this time of the year. I usually use the holiday, between Christmas and New Year’s, to reflect on how my previous year’s goals have gone and what I would really like to accomplish for the New Year.    I find myself asking God for a new vision for the year. Then I break it down into monthly goals and write those down in a monitoring form, for quick reference, for a glance to measure how I am doing. For example: Read 12 books this year, averaging one a month.
