Each semester, I spend a day setting semester goals. These include the regular calendar events that roll around each semester, like Leadership 101, Leadership Summit, monthly podcasts, etc. They include bigger picture events like missions trips. And they include personal study goals.
I just closed out my spring goal list, and I realize now why spring was so busy. I wrote a small group curriculum, produced Godspell, and led 22 people to Kenya. I knocked out 4 life goals in a 3- month time span.
The summer looks like it will be a bit more relaxed. Now, I just have to avoid the temptation to load it up with big projects.
