Resolutions are so passé.

I am not Miss Cleo, but I can provide you one painstaking revelation about your life last year with almost 100 percent accuracy, minus the exorbitant 1-800 charges. Ready: There is nothing you can do to change it. Absolutely nothing. So, there is no need to fret or dwell over the reviews of your internal critics. Instead, resolve to make your first footsteps into 2011 with some sort of direction. I’m not force-feeding you the resolutions lecture. I’m talking about goal-setting.

Goal-setting is a realistic way to establish focus for the year-to-come. By setting specific and measurable goals, you are more likely to:

  • Be motivated to exert more effort
  • Narrow your attention and direct your efforts
  • Work through setbacks and barriers

Although resolutions are destined to be broken, goals are meant to be achieved. With that spirit in mind, here are the professional goals of some of YNPN-TC’s board and committee members here (click on the image to enlarge). We hope by sharing our professional goals that you will be inspired to set your own.


Because sharing is sexy, let us know what some of your professional or personal goals are for 2011.
