I used to be big on goal setting around this time of year, but recently because of aspects in my personal life and with everything going on with covid all I'm doing is reviewing what I have done this year, and imagine what I want to achieve next year. So it's still goal setting but only loosely setting goals, just to give me a rough direction...

So what about you? did you set any goals for 2021? did you reach them? are you setting any for next year?

I don't really care to set goals or resolutions. I can feel the weight of them bearing down upon me as the year goes on. The last goal that I set was to read 24 books in a year and even though I read much more than that I still stressed incessantly about it until I hit that number and it made reading worse for me. As my life grows increasingly busy, with places to take my child, work, finishing my M.A. in Counseling, etc. I find that setting goals that seem arbitrary to an ideal that I have does more harm than good. Similar to you, I instead prefer to review, find things that I liked and didn't and grow from that. Are there things that I would like to accomplish in 2022? Yes, but I stay away from setting timelines and goals because I want to enjoy the time I spend accomplishing them.

Thank you so very much, Zaine; means everything to me and my family!! Unfortunately, stage 4 prostate cancer isn't curable. Yet, the prognosis is hopeful in that I'll die of something else, but not prostate cancer, according from my doctors. The immediate goal is for remission, partial or complete. It's all up to God!!

That is a great goal, Bob! Here's to making it happen!

I haven't really set any goals these last few years, and don't plan to set any this year, for the time being anyways.

Fingers crossed for you Bob, sending positive energy your way!

Mainly my goals have actually been for what I want to do with the club, right now my main goal is just for the club to survive the current climate!

But I do have a personal goal this year, my 4th Dan, I have been putting it off for a couple of years now, just thinking, I'll go for it next year, I was planning to do it this year but with the covid thing going on it was put back again, it has been provisionally arranged for January, but with covid on the rise again I wonder if the same thing will happen again.

So the main goals of 2022,
-Keep the club going
-Help my student gain his 2nd Dan
-Go for my 4th Dan

Very exciting! Good luck! I hope that people are safe enough to allow you to test!

No, not really. I guess I want to do a better job of appreciating what I have. I tend to focus on the negative but when I can get out of my head, I realize how blessed I am. Yes, I could end up with health problems some day or I could be dead tomorrow, but instead of thinking that way focus on what is happening now. I think one of the easiest ways to be happy is to be thankful for what you have and focus on that. One of the easiest ways to be unhappy is to focus on what you think you are lacking.


Good luck Bob. I hope you beat your cancer and are able to get a lot of support along the way!
