No goals for me for 2014.

No goals for me for 2014.” is the answer to the question “Are you setting any goals for 2014?” There are many people who do not set goals for 2014 and thrive! So, if you are not a goal setter or if you are a goal setter—THRIVE!!!!

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

Welcome to Video Monday!

Out loud; in your head; under your breath!

Practice makes progress!

 

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

“I’m not setting any goals for 2014!” is a possible answer to the question “Are you setting any goals for 2014?”

I ask this question and I am surprised by how many people answer “I’m not setting any goals for 2014!”

So, I thought ….hmm…Video Monday!

I set goals. I enjoy it! But, for those of you who do not:

 

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

I’m not setting any goals for 2014!

 

Have a good one!

 

Sincerely,

Katie

 

Happy New Year!
