It’s been a great start to 2016. I’ve been busy, which is always good, and more focused than ever (also good). My goals are starting to take shape, both personally and professionally. Many advocate for setting yearly goals, which I did but with very broad strokes. Trust me, I know getting healthy is a big, vague goal. However, I feel less overwhelmed and more focused when the time-frame is a bit narrower, which is why I chose to set monthly goals instead. The risk in setting too narrow of goals, of course, is to make sure that you’re still focused on the overall big picture. Otherwise, you might go off on some weird tangent and wind-up no where near your goal at the end of the year. One way I’m staying the course is through a strong focus word.
