Every time a new year rolls around, I create lofty new year resolutions. They typically fall into the categories: health, finances, relationships, and personal development. Some goals are accomplished while others end up incomplete or even worse, not started.
As the months pass by, Langston Hughes' Harlem runs through my head every time I think about things I won’t complete. I can tell you, a goal deferred does indeed fester like a sore and stink like rotten meat. It lingers at the back of my head constantly reminding me that I should start on the goal.
Why not have fewer goals?
Because I dream big! Jokes aside, I’ve tried that but some goals require months of solid commitment and tend to be the first to go when life gets busy so that I have more time to focus on immediate needs.
What’s different this time around?
Accountability. Blogging about my progress will motivate me to stay committed to my goals and learning new skills.
This blog will be a place where I share my journey of lifelong learning and it starts today.
