Lesson 200: 2015 Goals




Maybe next year.

Lesson Learned: I'm not sure I even have time to learn lessons.

  1. Thanks for sharing your life on this blog! Even though I haven't had a chance to meet you and Mark, this is such an encouragement to see how you live life to the fullest as you try to figure it out just like the rest of us. On the topic of GOALS: I shared your exact sentiments when it came to setting goals and doing the cliche thing of writing down a goal, being disappointed when I looked at it months or years later and hadn't worked toward it, then laughed at the thought of making more goals. Then something changed.

    By the grace of God, I was able to forklift out of my cubicle career, and we made a leap to move from Virginia to Florida so I could start a business where I help people with their finances and coach people on how to build wealth, then partner with them in their plan as I hold them accountable. Simultaneously, I blame and thank Brian Wheeler for bringing me into this, but it has turned out to be a thrilling ride. All that to say, I now have a career where I help other people understand their own life/family goals, then make them write them down and celebrate with them along the way as they make steps toward their written goals.
    Teaching is the best reinforcement for learning - so here I am, now feeling like I have accomplished a few goals I had written 2 years ago like starting a business and stepping up in leadership to help couples enhance their marriage, and now I frequently revisit the thoughts of our next, new goals and how we can make them happen faster than our originally projected timeline! In speaking with my wife this weekend, I'm realizing that by not having goals, we are simply avoiding the answer to the question: How I can I make the most impact for the sake of Jesus in this world? Lack of conviction typically leads to lack of results and feelings of frustration.
    You may already be working toward/accomplishing goals that you and Mark have, but instead of looking forward to the new year to start the goal setting process - first start by reflecting on all you have been blessed to accomplish by Jesus' grace flowing through your life! I've read many posts where you do this in your life, but why not kick off 2015 with an updated reflection?

    P.S. this is my favorite post because of "Buckshot's" face. http://idonthaveacluebutimfindingout.blogspot.com/2013/11/lesson-130-ten-quick-thoughts-week-5.html
