You might have heard me talk about New Year's goals before. I make a list of things I want to accomplish each year and think through how to accomplish each one. I don't call them resolutions, but it's something akin to that. The big difference is that listing goals along with the ways to meet those goals seems to have a higher rate of success (for me, anyway) than just making a resolution.
Some would argue that they're one and the same thing. Maybe so.
What brought this on was reading a couple of the articles on this week's Dollar Stretcher - namely, Videos that Save and Learn a New Skill Frugally. If you put the two ideas together, you might come up with this: Look through (or make one!) your list of goals and see what you need to learn to meet them. Do you see where I'm going? The internet is an extremely valuable source of information, whether you choose Youtube or text tutorials. If you prefer, the library has so many books about so many topics that you can get lost there. Surely the information, the encouragement, the pep talk, the missing link is there, just waiting for you to find it.
While you're researching, of course, don't forget Dollar Stretcher.The more we learn, the more we can do with what we have.
