The 2009 Challenge for You and Me

Once again I'd love to share a great idea of mine with all of you out there. I hope you're not rolling your eyes already wondering what I've come up with this time :) I'd also actually love to get some feedback and involvement from all two and a half humans that read my blog. Alright straight to the point...

I'm challenging you to join me in setting 3 goals that you want to accomplish in 2009. They can be whatever you want with only one condition that has to apply to each goal. Each goal's intended purpose needs to have an end result that positively impacts either yourself or somebody else or both. Your goals can be whatever you want them to be. They may be big or small. They may also be pertaining to your personal or professional life or they may pertain to yourself, your family, your friends, or any combination of the three. As long as the intended outcome is a positive impact on you or somebody else that is all that is required.

Here's my three goals for the year 2009:

1) Volunteer at least 100 hours in my local community
2) Get involved in a small group or class at my church
3) Take an active role in providing solutions to challenges that my national government faces by submitting at least one idea (entry) a month to my new president, Barack Obama, through his website -

There you have it. Now it's your turn to think of what you want to accomplish for next year. Feel free to share your goals by making a comment on this article or if you don't feel comfortable doing that then I'll let you off the hook this one time :) Just make sure you're working towards something positive next year and hopefully it'll make you and those around you better off.

And remember one thing - APATHY is your own worst ENEMY when it comes to making a difference.
