When Joanna was a kid she organized everything. You can tell that Gus and Jo have different playing styles.
Last January I decided to start evaluating how I did with goals over 2008.
Here were some of the goals that I came up with for 2009.
(Instead of a pass or fail, Im gonna give myself a grade instead.)
1. Spend more time getting things done
Grade:C+ I got alot better at keeping track of things, but I still wasted alot of time this year.
2. Get to know more of our neighbors
Grade:B- Volunteering and being a local helped with this.
3. Network with more church planters
Grade:B+ Between Philly, Assessment and Pittsburgh, I’m beginning to get to know alot of great church planters.
4. Write on our blog more often
Grade:C While I didn’t write as often as I wanted to, I upped my posting over 2008, from under 40 to 114.
5. Finish as many of my half read books as possible
Grade: C- While I did finish some books I wanted to read, I ended up adding a few more books to my need to read list.
6. Take more photos
Grade: A- With a new baby, and a better camera phone I definitely took alot more pictures this year than 2008.
7. Pray more
Grade: B+ While a had a better pattern of prayer in 2009 than I did in 2008. I’m still not praying as often as I wish.
So what are some goals for 2010
Read and pray more systematically with my family.
Go fishing or camping at least once.
Write in a more systematic way.
Get my bike fixed and actually ride it.
Network with more community leaders and pastors.
