Do you set goals? Some people make New Years resolutions which are, in essence, goals. Yet they aren’t the same.
Resolutions are things you want to resolve within yourself. Perhaps it’s a behavior you wish to change.
Goals are achievement-oriented. Goals are definable, measurable, and they should stretch you to reach them. This is one of the ways we grow.
Set goals for yourself, and check your progress regularly. Then look back after a period of time and see how far you’ve progressed.
