Review of 2016 and new goals for 2017

So, I looked at my goals for 2016 and, yeah, I knew I had way too many goals back then. But here was my thinking: If you have a lot of goals, then surely you can achieve 25% of them by the end of the year and feel good about yourself. I was throwing mud. If you throw mud at the wall, some of it will stick. 

So, here are some of the goals Jesus and I achieved in 2016. 
MENTAL - We read 9 books, watched 9 movies, and listened to numerous TED talks. 

FINANCIAL - We cash-flowed about $15K on house repairs. We gave more regularly. 

CAREER - We videotaped  ourselves teaching 6 times this year. 

PHYSICAL - We drank 96 bottles of water. We ate a salad an average of once a week. We took up hiking and kayaking, and we went swimming and improved our strokes this summer. 

SPIRITUAL - We wrote 3 prayers this year and used one of them to pray more regularly. 

RELATIONSHIPS - We kept in contact with specific friends more regularly through email and texting. 

Instead of listing all of my goals for 2017, I decided to just link to the goals I posted on 2 Deals A Year. Here's the link.
