As we bid farewell to what has arguably been the most unusual calendar year in human history, Todd and Wendie share some insights and guidance on how to set "SMART" goals moving forward.
Goals can be a blessing in that they keep us on target and accountable. They give us something to aim for in that there's always even a faint light at the end of the tunnel even when the night seems to last forever.
They can also be a bit of a hindrance to real progress. If we become obsessed with setting and keeping goals, they can potentially distract us from our mission and purpose in life.
Sometimes you just have to "go with the flow" as they say. It's easier said than done, as Todd can attest. Going with the flow means we lose the illusion of being in control of our circumstances to a certain degree. But when your mind is stayed on God, when you trust Him to provide for your needs, letting go of control can be a beautiful thing.
Lean in as Todd and Wendie shed light on New Year resolutions you can actually keep, setting goals that are in alignment with your calling in life, and how at the end of the day, it's God who gives the increase whether we stay true to our goals or not.
