I plan on setting some monthly goals instead of something that might not work out by the end of the year

so some goals are this month get the new jeep inspected and pass the emissions test ,keep up with the house cleaning/chores and do a better job with the girls and the reward system since I have not been doing that well plus the girls and bedtime routine needs improvement a little as well

I know what you mean about setting year long goals. I have a hard time setting a goal for the day or week! LOL My goal, however, for this week is to finish an online class I'm taking so that I can take the final before the end of next week. My goal for next week is to figure out a study and work schedule that will work for me since I start at a new school next week, that's just scary all by itself, so maybe my goal should be to survive a new school! LOL Anyway, after that, it's gonna be a week by week goal all year long. I have vague goals of eating better and getting more exercise, but no plan in place to help make that happen.

Think of year-long goals like this---A person wants to lose 60 lbs. in a year. Great goal, but a big number. So the person breaks that down into losiing 5 lbs. per month. Same end result but the 5 sounds like a much more manageable number.

That's how I think of my yearly goals & monthly goals. Each of my monthly goals helps me to achieve my yearly ones.
