I consider myself a very goal-oriented person. I usually keep a running list of all the things I want to accomplish in a given time period. Some goals are long term, while others will be accomplished in a shorter span of time. Nevertheless, the overall goal is accomplishment. I want to be able to stamp “COMPLETED” on my endeavor and move on to what’s next on the list. But what happens when that goal of accomplishment becomes elusive? What happens when you just can’t reach the finish line? Well, if you’re anything like me, you simply move on, determined not to allow the next goal’s fate to mirror the previous. With catchy slogans like “Keep calm and move on,” you would think that there is nothing wrong with this line of thinking. A continuous cycle of this behavior, however, reveals itself to be detrimental to progress and in many cases, can lead to regression. Sadly, here is where I currently stand. So in an attempt to avoid my habitual conduct in matters involving commitment, I will utilize this blog and others as the accountability partner that I lack in real life and document my progression in the areas most important to me: motherhood, personal and professionalism development and balance. I hope you stick around for the ride.
