On My Way to a S.M.A.R.T. 2008

After having a difficult time judging the success or failure of y2007 goals, this year I thought I'd try something new, and make my new year's resolutions the same way many businesses make their employee goals. Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Oriented, and Timely. All except the first one.

  • Whine Less - Philippians 2:14 "Do everything without complaining or arguing."
  • Stay aware of the world around me, by reading one campaign and one international politics article per day, and one education book or journal per month.
  • Run better, by finding new long runs, i.e. in Kettle Moraine South, and by achieving a 2:10:00 in the Lake Country Half marathon, and by training for and running the Madison marathon.
  • Be a better friend, by writing letters to missionaries 2 times per month, sending birthday cards or emails to a list of 20 people, responding to emails within 2 days, and reviving 2 specific friendships.
  • Super Secret Fifth Goal
