It is important to set goals in life whether they be yearly, weekly, quarterly or in my case, by semester.
I believe in goals that are achievable and often times of no significance. No foolish goals of losing XX number of pounds. I want to do these things but I see no need for setting goals for these things. For instance, last semester (Sep to Dec 2007), I went from 170 something pounds to 155 lbs mainly from biking everywhere, doing push-ups and because it is hot, I eat less. Plus my roommate is a good cook and is very health conscious so he cooks healthy meals.
For this semester I have set the following goals:
1 I want to ace of my exams. I have 3 difficult classes so this will be tough
4. I want to get my roommate to dance in my presence without a group. I have tried to get him to dance to the Humpty dance and walk like an Egyptian but he refuses. This might be the toughest goal.
