I like goals. I am a very goal oriented person. I like to do lists. I am generally pretty good at accomplishing my goals, but I decided I wanted this year to be different. I am not creating goals (with one exception) for myself. I am going to remain FOCUSED to meet the every day and the long term challenges of my life.
The marathon is my exception. It is my goal and my FOCUS for 2012. I do not feel like I have enough energy to determine any other goals for myself until I finish the marathon. My time and energy is being dedicated to marathon training and my family. Everything else will get what is left of me until 3/3/11. That is the day that I accomplish my goal of running a marathon. After that day I can re-evaluate my goals. However, I will continue to maintain my FOCUS!
