I've been thinking about goals a lot this week. I'm in the middle of our on-air fundraiser at work, so there's a lot of talk about various monetary and listenership goals.
Then I read a Starbucks "The Way I See It" quote. Nothing quite like an espresso-laced latte at 5:15 in the morning to bring clarity to your life. The quote said "...stop saying 'I wish' and start saying 'I will.' Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities."
I think that's actually pretty profound. Think about all the things you would do if you considered your dreams as probabilities for your life. Would you travel more? Live in a different country? Learn another language? Give up more of your time and money for the poor and unloved? Read more? Watch TV less? Cultivate a new hobby? The list is endless.
With that idea in mind, I've decided to set a goal and believe that I "will" accomplish it. It may sound a little crazy and many of you may still be of the mindset that it can't be done. But I will forge on. My goal is to bake a list of items starting with each letter of the alphabet. :)
Feel free to submit suggestions.
And yes, I'll be considering some more "lofty" goals as well.
