Goals…Yet Again

I heard somewhere that if you want to actually achieve your goals, you have to put them down on paper.  Well, I don't really do paper -- I blog.  So I thought in the spirit of the New Year I would share my list of goals with all of you so that I can't rescind you can all help me along the way.

It started out as a list of 50 - it went a little over.  I have a feeling I will be adding more to it over time.

I had a list like this in high school, and so I've left off things I have achieved (or at this point, can't achieve) and have started my list anew.
