I'm not retired yet so I have a list of goals everyday. We are exactly the same because I have to focus on reaching one goal and the most important--what's important for me. I get lost in accomplishing goals for everyone but me. Therefore, I'm headed down to the basement to exercise right now. Just know I like the post--one goal a day. I need that reinforced each morning.
Each morning while still in bed, I formulate a plan for all the things I want to accomplish for the day. Nothing overwhelming, just simple things and since I am retired I think I should be able to get things done. All is well until my feet hit the floor !! It's all downhill after that. Maybe if I didn't like to have such a leisurely breakfast, I would do better. But, since joining SparkPeople, I have a new sense of determination about everything. So,please wish me well, SparkPeople.

I have not been drinking water, at all. Today my goal is to drink 6 eight ounce glasses of water.

Great but I usually have more than one task that I need to do during a day--grocery list must be done so tomorrow I can get there, laundry that must be dealt with before it is needed tomorrow. So maybe this is those "goal" things--then it makes sense.

What a great idea. I have a whole list of "to do's", and most of them get transferred from one week to the next. I'm going to check out the website you mention, and give it a good try. Thank you.

I recently saw a suggestion on how to organize one's life. It was to simply forget the long lists and make one goal a day to achieve. http://www.marcandangel.com/2009/03/19/i-w ill-do-one-thing-today-to-do-list/
My goal today is to finish the kids easter pajamas.
