Missed targets

Back in September I defined a couple of personal goals, but I have failed to meet them. Once again real life takes precedence and I was busy taking care of higher priority activities.

The first one was my Six Sigma Green Belt Course that I was supposed to finish last week.

The second was my Virtual Box project that I started to test different Operating System within my own laptop, but so far it has not been successful. I need to devote more time to that project.

Even my presence here at Persona Paper was affected. I was absent for a couple of weeks, for the same reasons stated above. So I did not have a chance to get up to date with the latest developments at the site.

Without going into details, I needed to reset those goals, and I am now trying to complete them within the new time frame. Also I will try to be more active here this month.

What are your expectations for October?

We've all missed out targets and personal lists to accomplish! I for one have.... I should of had 10 recipes written by now to add to the new pile, but real life and spending time with my family has taken over. Sometimes you just have to set things aside and come back to them refreshed.

I am way behind in my goal of writing at least one post per day. My recruitment efforts have thus far been totally unsuccessful. Life happens to all of us -- it's a good thing, but often places us on detours. Good luck to you and good luck to me too. : ) (I know nothing about darts, so have no guess as to the issue with the dartboard.)

Good luck with the goals. I have some health related goals I'm trying to meet in between doctor visits.

I don't have any goals set for October. I will just be doing what I do everyday here and at home.

My September goal for Persona Paper was to write one post per day. I think I wrote 3. I've already written 3 in October so I can't do worse. I'll aim for 30 before the end of the month.

I am going to try to get myself on a regular schedule, which is a HUGE challenge for me, but I need it very badly.

My biggest goal is figuring out how to best plan getting to my nephew's wedding the weekend of the 18th and back safely. It's pretty hard to plan this month. I do need to finish my precinct walking by the weekend, and I'd like to post a few times here and get about three more in at the other site and get a few more hubs edited before the end of the month, but I don't know how it will work out.

tinamarie Correct, and you are not even counting the celebration of your 16th wedding anniversary emoticon :winking:

Perhaps it is best not to set too many goals for a month.
