Practice Makes Progress
Practice Makes Progress.
This is a phrase I say often. I don’t believe in Perfection, and teaching my kids that if they practice something they will perfect it seems wrong to me. Instead, we strive for progression.
As you saw in my 2016 goals post, I didn’t quite complete all of my 2015 goals, but I did make progress. I think part of that was because I just simply didn’t look back/read them often enough. To avoid that, I have printed my 2016 goals out and hung them in my bedroom where I will see them everyday as a reminder of what I want to accomplish.
Nevertheless, I wanted to share the progress of my 2015 goals. I added notes for some goals inside parenthesis. I plan on completing the list in 2016. I put a strike through the goals that were completed.

Did you complete all of your 2015 Goals?
I find it easier to complete my goals if I make them according to what I am already focused on doing.
