Goal accounting

Here is the progress made on my 2010 New Year’s Resolutions.

  • Read 12,000 pages. At last count, I was on track to succeed with this one.
  • Learn to cook 20 new dishes. FAILED. Made only 10.
  • Participate in Project 365. FAILED. I made it to February before I gave up on it.
  • Have fun now not later. SUCCESS. Went to more events people invited me to attend than the previous four or five years combined.

What is interesting is the more others talked about my goals, the stronger I pushed on them. So a good goal is one others hold interest in me completing?

Cooking and reading were somewhat incompatible. Cooking is a home activity. I do not read very well at home as computers, television, and any number of things distract me. Failing it was a calculated decision so that I would meet a more important goal.
