Every year I set goals for the year.  It is usually a mixture of simple, hard, short and long goals for that year.  This year, I wanted to do it differently.  I am really excited about the formatting and think it would work well for anyone.  I decided to theme each month.  Each month my goals will go along with the theme.

If you haven’t made a goal list for 2013, I encourage you to do so using this format.  Use themes that are relevant to your life and go from there.
