Default You got me thinking... I'm setting up my goals for 2020...

My point, just a check point on the journey. Either to check the map, the vehicle, the conditions, just a check point.

Resolutions, represent in my mind, a change of direction. Most of us, don't need or want that.

But I find it useful as a general check up, like a yearly visit to the doc, and taking your car in for a tune up.

Or as Professor Irwin Corey said, "If you don't change directions soon, you're going to get where you are going."

Most of us don't need to change directions, but maybe refuel, and check our maps.
Hi Gordon,

Thanks for your response!

(I meant to reply earlier... but got bogged down with stuff...!)

After thinking about it... rather than "resolutions" - maybe "goals" is a better word?

(Although they are similar... in my mind, they're not exactly the same...)

First - they say people with WRITTEN DOWN goals are more likely to achieve them. (I believe you've also mentioned this!)

Second... I recently read an article about how country music star Tim McGraw has stuck to his goals by dividing a goal into "microgoals"... Something small you can achieve every day, for example.

(I was reading about Tim McGraw because of Glenn's recent post - about how Taylor Swift "broke" into the music big time by singing a song called... "Tim McGraw"...)

So, I'm going to set some goals and some microgoals for 2020...

(It's okay if I start a couple days late, isn't it? )

Best wishes,


P.S. Here is the article about Tim McGraw and how he sets "microgoals"...
