New Year's Goals

Do you ever get a little wore down with your New Year resolutions? Do you seem to MISS half of them...or more? This is a great must-read post about setting goals for the new year over at The Sciptorium Daily. JP Moreland uses the board-game Monopoly as an analogy. Here is his summary of WHY the individual turns in the game would be meaningless if the game had no goal or purpose:
Because if the game as a whole has no purpose, the individual moves within the game are pointless. Conversely, it is only in light of a game’s actual purpose according to its inventor that the individual moves within the game take on significance.
It is a great read and a powerful reminder - you can't set meaningful effective goals for your life if you don't know your life's purpose.
