Chris Downie talks about life purpose and how this drives our goals. I know that one of the strongest desires I have is to positively influence others. I want people to say about me that I made a difference in their life. I know that this is one reason I worked so long in Children's church (15 years). I hoped I was impacting kids' lives in a positive way long term. It was the thing that kept me going when things were hard. The HOPE that I was making a difference.
I want to teach a Bible study. That is one of my specific goals.
I also want my soon to be success on Spark People to impact others around me to make lasting changes in their own lives. HOPING that I can impact someone else is one of the things that can help me stay motivated to see this thing through.
I want to be 10lb less the next time I see the doctor. I have my annual check up soon.
AND I want to be near or at my goal weight by the time we go to Singapore to visit our daughter.
That would be 4 goals:
short term- 10lbs in 6 weeks
mid term- 3 to 6 months, teach Bible study
mid term- goal weight by May 25th
long term- impacting other to change their lives
