All right, so we don't yet have jet packs or robot maids, but get ready for a great new year.
How, you ask? Great question...
- Take stock; consider what has made you happy, whether in the last days, weeks, year or years.
- Write down your goals for the next month, or year.
- Try to come up with at least 2-3 steps to reach those goals.
I want to run a marathon this year.
I will run four to five days, every week
I have a plan to increase miles (attach plan)
I have signed up to run a half marathon
I have committed to running the Boston Marathon
I have publicly shared this commitment

Changes can be big, or small. Perhaps you want to have a cleaner kitchen, start a new career, have a better relationship, yell less, exercise more, or increase family meals.
A resolution is a sweeping statement that is akin to a wish.
A goal plan is how to get from where you are, to where you want to be.
For help creating a goal plan big or small, I look forward to hearing from you at http://mommybutstillme.com/ , or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
