Goals: The purpose toward which an endeavor is directed; an objective.

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

As the year comes to an end I'm reflecting on all the things I have accomplished and thinking about all the wonderful fun projects I want to do.  This year was a creative success and I learned many lessons.

Each day I am closer to being the person I am destined to be.  I read, write and study every single day. Thanks to this blog I've been able to know myself better and determine my weaknesses: Focus & Distractions.

By paying attention to my habits I can brainstorm methods to help me with my 2012 goals.  I realize I can make super sized goals but I also need to make detailed plans for achieving each particular goal.  It makes sense and I will do that with next years goals.

I would love to hear your tips and tricks for achieving your goals. Please share them with me.
