January 2011 Goals

It's the first day of a new year, the perfect time for setting goals! 

One of my 11 goals for 2011 included posting monthly genealogy goals.  These are the ones I have set for January.  I'm keeping it simple here in order to keep goal #11 which is to relax and enjoy!

1.  Finish scanning the pile of papers sitting on the floor by my bed.  I'm 3/4 of the way done, I just have to take it into the home stretch!

2.  Leave a comment on, at least, 5 blog posts each day.  I appreciate each and every comment I receive on this blog and want to be sure I am returning the favor.  I'm inspired by genealogy blog postings everyday....I just need to say so.
3.  Begin organizing my genealogy files for the new file cabinet.  I was tempted to say complete this process but I know once I begin digging into some of those files I will get sidetracked.  A little genealogy ADD will probably set in.  It's a little disorder which I suffer from, from time to time! 

That's it.  Just 3 goals.  Can I meet them?  Like the little engine......I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.......


  1. I think I have genealogy ADD too! I start with one research goal and the next thing I know I am completely off and running in a completely new direction. Good luck with your monthly goals and Happy New Year!

  2. Great goals, Lisa! I, too, enjoy receiving comments on my blog and try to make a point to comment on other people's blogs as often as possible. Some good friendships have resulted from those comments!

  3. Ditto on the Genie ADD! Got it bad!

    Good luck on your goals!

  4. Three goals is a good number. And it's hard to avoid that ADD thing - there are just so many interesting pieces of information that pop up and lure us down those side paths.
