Well, it’s a good thing my resolution isn’t to stop procrastinating!
I sat down to review my goals from 2014 before coming up with new goals for 2015, when I realized that I hadn’t achieved a single one. Not one. Zero. But instead of beating myself up and getting mopey about it, I decided to see what went wrong and what I could do differently this year. What it really boiled down to was that I was at Point A, and I wanted to grow and get to Point B, every single time.
And so I came up with the perfect goal for 2015—do better.
How simple yet beautifully complex is this? Better. One word to strive for all year, to repeat as a mantra. Better. Nothing concrete to measure, yet easily achievable.
Personally, I have a lot I want to do better in 2015. Eat better, run better, race better, cross train better. Be a better family member, wife, friend, person. Live better.
I can set and achieve smaller, more defined goals throughout the year. But they all come back to that one word—better.
Is this a cop-out goal? Maybe. But this is what I need to guide me through 2015. Better. Everything, better.
Do you have one word that sums up your goals for 2015? What is it?
