A Month of Goal Setting


Today is the last day of February and I’ve completed my 28 day experiment of daily goal setting. I think the biggest benefit for me was the daily learning that happened as a result of setting and reviewing a few goals for each day.

I learned some things about when I’m most productive. I learned how to stay on top of recurring tasks such as preparing for and cooking dinner. And while I didn’t always meet my daily goals I accomplished more than I would have otherwise.

In addition to accomplishing more I was also more purposeful about spending time with God, reading my Bible, and praying. This experiment is one that I want to continue and try to make a daily habit. I think over time the rewards will be even greater.
