Life is what you make of it. Find out what you want through 10Q

Question 6: Describe one thing you’d like to achieve by this time next year. Why is this important to you?

We all make resolutions, whether it is at the Jewish New Year, the calendar New Year or just when we look down at our expanding waistlines. But we don’t always think deeply about what is really important for us to achieve in the coming year. Losing weight is a common one. What will be important for you to achieve this coming year? Is the goal personal or is it for a broader good? In the past 10Qers have had wide-ranging answers: One was surprising, even to the 10Qer doing the reflection: “Never thought bankruptcy would be something I’d want to achieve – it always seemed so ‘dead-end’ and ‘your life is OVER.’ But now to me, it says ‘this means you get to move back home soon.’” Another was personal and realistic: “I’d like to bring my relationship with my wife back to the level it was at when we first met. I understand that we can’t turn back time after 18 years of marriage and five kids. So, what I am hoping to achieve is really something more akin to a renewed spiritual connection that is deeply rooted in a profound respect and love for each other.” You don’t have to have just one goal or one type of goal. Set goals for different parts of your life: physical, emotional, professional, personal. And next year you may be surprised by where you are at when you get your answer back.
