Goals that are not written down are just wishes. – Anonymous
Very well then. I have to set these down then, my goals for 2009.
Personal Goal. Giving up the smoking habit. I have set it out in my initial post in this blog, but I kept postponing the day of final deliverance. I confess I have yet to position myself on the starting block and make a go at it.
Every day, I first check out the comment section on this blog. Primarily because I positively cringe at the prospect of a reader checking my progress on my earlier vow. I hate that I can’t brag that I have started already. Can’t even put to to paper the suffering I have to go through on account of kicking the habit. Bad, bad.
It’s no relief that this blog has stayed under the radar of friends and well-meaning readers. When they do eventually come around and ask I have to be honest. My credibility as a person and as a blog author rests on this.
It’s not enough to write it on stone. In this day and age you have to write it down on a blog for good measure.
I’d occasionally post here my progress if you don’t mind. And if you feel like checking up on me, feel free to do so. I’d appreciate it.
Goal For This Blog . In my earlier post, 8 Internet Goals for 2009, I have cheekily enumerated what I set out to do for next year. That I guess was written in a moment of pique or derangement. At the time, I desperately needed company in this blog. And there were no visitors so I wrote that. The only valid goal was summarized in the 8th entry. So there.
Of course, I can delete it, but in retrospect, I elected it to stay as a stark reminder of my progress as a blogger.
I wish to add my dream of moving into a more decent house (shhh, this is just between you and me, okay). Where I can move as I please. Where there’s a big cupboard I can stack with to-die-for plug ins. Every time I check out my blog neighbors in wordpress ville, I hate having this feeling of inferiority as if I were a poor cousin. I know I’m not exactly living under the bridge, but I can’t help it.
It strains credulity if one blogs about personal growth while living on the pittance of the blogger platform.
I’m just saving money for the move.
In your case, what do you wish to achieve in 2009?
