Describe one thing you'd like to achieve by this time next year. Why is this important to you?

Teach my children some rituals of Judaism, probably food based. I want to keep some aspects of the faith in the future generations of my family.

On a personal level, I would like to achieve more inner confidence & peace. I know i've come far in these areas, but I know that I still have a long way to go. I know that in order to find love in another person, I need to be confident in my love for myself. On a business level, I would like to see our numbers, both online & in the store, grow immensely. I would like to be financially stable, personally & at the store, by this time next year. I'm $10,000 behind in rent, not to mention student loans, etc., & I don't want to be carrying that baggage a year from now. I hope to be caught up (if not free of) personal & business debt.

Work life balance! I think I said the same thing last year... I think we'd also like to feel a bit more settled. We're starting to look for a home, so that would be a significant milestone for our family.

I really need to find exercise that I enjoy and commit to it. I want to commit to better health. Lose a few pounds. Drink less. Eat less sweets.

A stable career pursuing something I am passionate about, something that makes a difference and is able to harness my creativity.

By this time next year, I want to be more conscientious of others wants, needs, feelings, and motivations. I don't know how to quantify this, but I think it will strengthen my relationships. I also want to rekindle old friendships and keep in touch with long distance friends. I want to surround myself by positivity, optimism, hope, and clarity. I want to cut out all negativity, all that does not serve me, and all that is not beneficial to my growth, strength and outlook. Measurably, I want to become more aware of what goes on in the world. Thus, I will read three world-news articles per day.
