(This is Main Street by Angie, who is working on art goals here on the blog!)
This has been a personal project to blog every day for a school year on goals and dreams. My hope was that I could find a group of people to work with me.
I was lucky enough to find a small, but sincere group of inspirational people to keep me company. We've been using Walt Disney's philosophies or creations as inspiration.
I am no longer blogging daily, but I am notified if comments are posted, and I'll be happy to keep the discussion going!

When goals seem to multiply.
I am posting in between meetings and taking a break from the things on my "to do" list. Today is one of those days when lots of goal seeds seem to all be blooming at once.
I've gotten quite a few messages from blog readers (and blog peekers...one or two time visitors who's opinions I value) that deciding on a goal is a scary proposition.
Some have enthusiastically decided on a goal, only to change it or decide the time is not right.
I think a wise person avoids goals that are not really a priority. A different type of wisdom would be knowing that, even though a goal was started, that it is time to drop it.
But some times it is hard to plan ahead. Some goals get sent out into the world, and need someone else's approval to move forward. If someone else approves it, then the work starts.
I've found, with these goals, the best way to assure that you keep busy is to send out lots of little goal seeds, knowing that most will not take root.
Well, I'm in a phase where all my goal seeds have taken root and, for a time, I'm a bit under the gun.
This can happen in lots of ways. Interviewing for a whole bunch of jobs, then being offered all of them. Or maybe trying to have children and discovering that triplets are on the way. Maybe auditioning for several shows and getting them all.
I'm running out of time, here, so I'm hoping someone else will help me develop this topic.
Have you ever had a bit too much great stuff to manage? What is your number one tip for managing?
Once in a while, I see a comment that I don't want anyone to miss. This was just posted below, and I'm copying it here so it is front and center!
This is where I think my military and emergency room/ICU training would help me....I had to learn to "triage" victims/patients in a specific order... "Airway, Breathing, Circulation......" then a secondary checklist comes into play......Now, If I could only place "correctly" my goal items as such....That would be so nice....LOL.... But items that "have" to be done by a deadline, financial restrictions....then take it from there as they are based on the "whole" picture....are there any that would make other tasks easier????
