Setting goals is NOT selfish. Setting goals is wise. Do NOT let anyone tell you differently! I am all okay with God stepping in and saying "Hey, I know you have your plans to reach your goal ~ but I need you to do this in the meantime!". But going about our day in a hem haw manner is not wise. It will get you no where.
I say this as I set my OWN goals that I want to accomplish before the end of the year. Goals that will lead me to where I want to be as a whole person ~ all of me. As we head fast into Thanksgiving and Christmas (saying holiday season just doesn't sound right), I realize time is ticking fast. It's time to get busy and focus! God is good ~ as he sets the seasons in motion. Summer is a big slow down for me, Autumn tends to speed things up a bit, and the first part of winter (through Christmas) is really busy and hectic. The deep of winter is another slow down, as Spring brings a speed up and then a rush as summer begins to approach.
KNOWING this... makes goal setting so much more easier as well as productive. Setting long term goals is difficult unless you know what you have coming up in the future time wise.
So....as we approach the end of the year, what goals do you want to accomplish?
