The 52

this year instead of resolutions I usually forget in a day or two - I've come up with a list of 52 non-professional mini goals to accomplish. One for each week although some will span multiple weeks and some can be done in the same week. Each time something is accomplished I will post a little progress here. Feel free to join in (if 52 is far to daunting perhaps go with 12 one for each month). Without further ado here's my list...

I love the 52 idea. I might have to copy you - although I guess I would have to start thinking about what mine are. Well, I'm going to work tomorrow, nothing will be going on so maybe I'll start to work on my list.

Jeanne said...
