goals: 2012 wrap-up

I used to make a list at the beginning of the year of what I wanted to accomplish before my next birthday.  "X things I wanted to do before I turned Y" list.  I love the concept, but it didn't work for me.  By the end of the year, some of the goals were no longer relevant and I had only crossed off, like,  3 things.  This year I tried something new.  I tried to make a smaller list of monthly goals like Elise.  I started in January- read more here.

I listed my goals at the beginning of every month (or close to the beginning).
monthly goals
1. January Goals, 2. February Goals, 3. March Goals, 4. April Goals, 5. May Goals, 6. June Goals, 7. July Goals, 8. August Goals, 9. September goals, 10. October Goals, 11. November Goals, 12. December goals

This method works best for me.  I can even say I completed 29 things before I turned 30.  :)  I will be doing this again next year.  The only change is that I hope to follow up with my goals at the end of the month.
