It’s beginning to look a lot like…2018! Wait, What?! It seems like I was just getting used to it being 2017. I was just getting comfortable with the rhythm and routine of 2017. I finally was beginning to make some headway on my 2017 goals. And here we are just 2 short weeks away from another year ending. We are just 15 days away from the start of 2018. Does that overwhelm anyone else?

Thinking about starting another year can be stressful. Add to that the hustle and bustle of Christmas, kids being home on break, and any kind of travel or visiting with family and friends and depression and anxiety can overwhelm. And let’s not even begin to talk about how I did on those “resolutions” or as I call them, goals. But the truth is: I need goals, and so do you.

But how do you choose areas for improvement? How can I decide what goal I want to focus on first? Should it be work? Or family? Or exercise? (Definitely, not exercise). Or maybe it’s personal? Could it be financial? There are so many areas in which I want to improve and I may make goals for each year, but actually accomplishing any of them, let alone all of them seems a high task. But there is help.

Michael Hyatt has generously put together an awesome assessment to help us analyze what area of life we may want to focus on improving first. He calls it “The Lifescore Assessment“. It is an easy assessment that takes no longer than 10 minutes. So if you are sitting around this Christmas break thinking or trying not to think about goals for the new year, why not start with “The Lifescore Assessment” to give you at least one area to begin with.

Enjoy and as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
