Next, as you accomplish each goal save something to commemorate the event (a picture, an airline ticket, a copy of your marriage licence, etc.)
1.Get a new album and customize it to fit your personality. Dedicate it to the upcoming year. (Or to Goals in general).
2. Make a list of things you want to do. (If the list becomes massive, pick your 10 or 12 favorites. That would be about 1 goal a month, which would make them more attainable).
3. Make sure your goals not only are achievable, but defined and have an estimated end date. (Instead of the goal "Be a better cook" make the goal "Take a cooking class and make 7 dishes that you learned there).
4. Devote at least one page to a goal. Then in December you can look back and see all of your accomplishments. It is also good motivation because you don't want to get around to December and find that your album is blank.
5. Save a memento from each goal. If you went on a hike save a leaf or something from that hike.
And most importantly: Don't forget to journal! Write what preparation this goal took. Write how you felt when you accomplished this goal. And write how proud you are that you accomplished all your goals this year!
