It’s not a typo.  I want to be great, but also have full experiences this year.

I want to try and be a better person this year.  I think that not only helps me but can help others.  Since that is a broad statement, I have a few simple attainable measurable goals in mind to help me ultimately improve as a person.

I’m going to try to make eye contact with people as I speak with and listen to them.  I want them to know I see them and appreciate who they are.  I think this will help me not be as distracted as I talk with others.  I will better be able to focus on them and I think I will have better relationships.

When I look in the mirror every morning I’m want to remind myself that I can do hard things and that I have done hard things before.  I want to remember that so I don’t lose hope.

When I find myself with nothing to do, I want to find something productive to do versus just pulling out my phone every time and scrolling thru it.  I want to try to notice where my mind wanders.  I want to consciously look around and notice things.  I think by doing this, I will find more worthwhile things to spend my time on.

I want to try something new every day, even if it is something as small as greeting people.  I want to try this experiment and notice the opportunities that come from doing it and bow I feel.

I am going to count and make sure I say thank you ten times a day.  I know if I focus on the good things I will be happier and more pleasant to be around.

I want to set goals that are attainable and that will make a difference at the same time.  It is in the doing not the talking or even planning to do something that I can attain the results.  I think it will result in doing great things and having a full life,
