This week with my kindergarteners we talked a lot about New Years and the concept of making resolutions, or goals to work towards, throughout the year. This was a relatively new concept for them to wrap their little minds around, but after some discussion many were really starting to get into it. As we were talking and sharing, a number of my students came up with some really wonderful goals.
To learn how to ride a bike…
To be better at their letters…
or even to learn to read…
Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of other goals…my favorite being finding a unicorn…and it all got me thinking about my own goals. Of course, there are a few major resolutions that I’ve committed myself to (which take the top few spots on my list) but I know there are a variety of little goals here and there I’d love to work towards before ringing in the next year.

According to Forbes, sharing your goals is one of five steps that, statistically speaking, help keep you accountable in reaching your goals. In fact, a study showed that when you write your goals down (or blog about them) you are 33% more likely to achieve your goals than if you didn’t. So, let’s help keep each other accountable this year and share your 20 in 2020 goal posts in the comments below!
