I love lists. I love getting out a planner and making long to-do lists. It makes me feel organized and accomplished....but the problem is, as a general rule, I never actually follow my lists. Somehow, I think that's a problem ;)
I'd love to get better at setting goals (yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily) and actually following them. I've noticed that several of the blogs I follow, like The Nectar Collective, According to Laura Jean and Oak and Oats, both have a monthly goal post that they do. I enjoy reading their goals and then coming back the next month to see how they did. I think I may follow suit and try this out.
So, though it's our second week into April, here are my goals for this month:
*Read (or listen to) the bible at least 3 times a week.
Even though my New Year's Resolution was to read my bible more, I have failed. I am doing good to read once a week which is really pathetic. I want that to change.
*Get ahead on blogging.
Eventually, I'd like to be at least three weeks ahead on my blog posts. But for now, my goal is a week. I'd like to always have a weeks worth of posts already completed and ready to go live. It'll take more discipline than I am used to with blogging, but I want to make it happen.
*Stop being critical of others.
Even though I think it's good to identify and call out wrong thinking and actions in the church, sometimes I can be too critical and forget to pull the plank out of my own eye first. I don't like this about myself, but it is extremely difficult to correct. I am going to try, for the month of April, to only talk about negative things if it is necessary for the good of others (i.e. if I don't warn someone they could be led astray or hurt). Otherwise, I intend to only say positive things about people.
What are your goals for this month? Did anything exciting happen in March? Comment below; I love hearing from you!
