Are you like someone in a rocking chair? Are you doing something, but not going anywhere?

This is not a good situation to be in, but if we aren't careful it is easy to end up in a rocking chair.

So, find a quiet place to sit and write down some of your goals.

What do you need to accomplish and what would you like to do today ... this week ... this month ... this year ... during your life.

You've probably heard of the bucket list - things you want to do before you kick the bucket. These are similar only over different time frames.

Don't make these goals too general like lose weight. Make them specific like lose 5 pounds in a month, exercise 3 times a week, walk for 30 minutes 5 days a week.

It's never too early or late to start making a list of your goals. But don't be content just making a list ... do something about them so you can cross them off your list. Make them specific so you can determine if you have accomplished them.

When I was young, I had a goal of retiring early so that I could relax and enjoy life, do the things I wanted to do and not the things I had to do. Well, I didn't act on that goal so I'm still working past when I wanted to retire and it will be several more years before I can retire.

Are you in a rocking chair with regards to your religion? Do you go to church services and just do what is required, the minimum to get by, just going through the motions?

Make some goals about your religion - get involved with a group in your church, become a volunteer, study the Bible more on your own, with a study guide, or with a group. Spend some time just talking and listening to God.

With goals to drive your life you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish.

So, get started and set out to make a list of your goals! And celebrate when you complete a goal and cross it off your list.
